Gesundheitsversorgung 4.0

The goal of the Health Care 4.0 project is to use digitalisation in rural areas such as Upper Franconia to help improve general medical and GP care for patients. The focus here is on medical care for patients who are in inpatient or outpatient care. For example, the doctor should be able to access the digital care file during the online consultation and communicate with the patient via video consultation if necessary.

Efficient home, outpatient patient care with pharmaceuticals and medical products is difficult to implement in Germany due to strict legal regulations. The Mediheld project does not aim at a complete abolition of the paper prescription, but complements it with a digital collaboration platform for the actors involved, through which patient care can be provided more efficiently.


The aim of the research project PräDiTec is to analyse the load and strain profile changed by digitalisation and to develop specific prevention measures.
