14:00 till 15:00
Webinar in cooperation between Fraunhofer IPMS and OpTecBB


Dr. Michael Scholles, Head of Project Hub Microelectronic and Optical Systems for Biomedicine at Fraunhofer IPMS, will give an overview of and project insights into Smart Systems for Medical and Health. Webinar language is English.  

About the webinar

Innovative technologies in healthcare have long been integrated into devices that treat acute or chronic diseases, and which affect vital prognoses or alter drastically the quality of life of numerous patients. However, tremendous progress in research fields such as biomedical, biophotonics and biosensing now offer completely new approaches that will radically change the way diseases are diagnosed, treated and followed-up. Healthcare systems face a huge challenge in providing the same level of care in an appropriate, efficient and cost-effective way.  Digitization of healthcare is an answer to those challenges and Smart Systems will significantly contribute. Innovative solutions for diagnosis and therapy like automated sampling and biopsies, multimodal imaging modalities, automated monitoring of patients vital functions are prominent example. The same underlying technologies can be used for advanced point-of-care diagnostics, enabling the way to a personalized medicine. This webinar will give examples of Smart Systems in Medical and Health and will feature requirements and challenges in this context.
