• The value of patient-centered design in hospitals

    When speaking of design in hospitals, most people think about interior design, but this evening, we like to speak about the design of services, processes and the whole experience of being in a hospital. There are not many touch points in which processes are more cost-driven and over-regulated as in hospitals. On the other side, there are also not many touch points in the healthcare ecosystem which are more connected to fear, uncertainty and other strong emotions for the patients and their relatives. Together we will learn about patient-centred design methods for designing hospital processes and services. By applying these, hospitals can get more efficient and pleasant for patients, relatives as well as healthcare professionals. Speakers: Emile Strømmen Olsen, Designit, Oslo Emile is an experienced and empathic Senior Service Designer from the Designit office in Oslo. Emilie places great importance on user involvement in the process. Emilie is an expert in executing user research, facilitating workshops and keeping a holistic eye in the projects. She will talk about a case for breast cancer patients at the Oslo University Hospital, the largest hospital in Scandinavia. Designit created a process to reduce the time from referral to diagnosis by 90%, and improved the overall experience for the patients during their hospital stay. Yasmina Haryono Yasmina is heading design at smart Helios. Prior to joining smart Helios, she has worked in design and product management roles for startups, agencies and corporates. Anja Mayr Anja is senior UX Researcher for smart Helios. She has been working as Service & UX Designer/Researcher and Innovation Consultant in digital product development & agencies for the past 7+ years. Smart Helios (https://smarthelios.de/en/) is a spin-off from Helios Kliniken, Europe’s leading private hospital group. Smart Helios develops digital solutions for patients and their family members and both, Anja and Yasmina, will tell us more about their work. Jan Simon Raue Jan Simon is co-founder and managing director of Fosanis. Fosanis is developer of Mira (www.mira-app.com), a platform supporting cancer patients by providing mental support and practical guidance for patients facing a challenging time in their lives. Prior to Fosanis, Jan Simon worked as a strategy consultant at OC&C and co-founded AdvoAssist, a leading German legaltech platform. He holds a PhD from the Technical University of Berlin.

  • End of life - what value can technology-enabled services provide?

    We are starting the new year with a very important topic, though often pushed to the sides and well - to the end. In our society we would like to ignore death and when it happens it makes us feel uncomfortable. Can technology/enabled services change that dynamic? What value does technology provide for end of life decisions? We invited a panel of founders and experts who shape great products that support people and their loved ones during the end of life and death. Speakers: Paul Brandenburg, CEO @ Dipat - Die Patientenverfügung, https://www.dipat.de/ Björn Krämer, Founder @ MYMORIA GmbH, https://www.mymoria.de Prof. Dr. Thomas Meyer, CEO @ Ambulanzpartner.de https://www.ambulanzpartner.de/ & Director @ Ambulanz für ALS und andere Motoneuronenerkrankungen, Charité www.als-charite.de Leon Bichler, Founder @ LifeCompanion App https://www.lifecompanion.eu/ Moderator: Patricia Ex, Managing Director @ Bundesverband Managed Care, http://www.bmcev.de The meetup will be in German.

  • Digital Health 2020: what is entering German Healthcare in the next 3 years?

    Dear health 2.0 members, #1 if you are RSVPed and cannot make it, please UN-RSVP asap on our meetup platform to free your spot to someone from the waiting list. #2 doors open at 6:30pm at Spielfeld. We will have the RSVP list printed at 3pm on OCT 25th as our reference. Who is RSVP’ed and on location BEFORE 7pm is allowed to come in. #3 if you are on the waiting list and suspect a no-show from someone on the RSVP list, you can give it a try and come to the event location at your own risk: if we have free spots left due to no-shows on our RSVP list after 6:50pm, we will give away the spots to the people who are on location AND on the waiting list. #4 if you are RSVP’ed and arrive after 6:50pm, we cannot let you in due to the people who we share your free spot on the waiting list. #5 We’re sorry we cannot make an exception this time, no matter what title, relationship to us or bright smile you have. We appreciate your interest very very much and are looking forward to welcome you on time tomorrow at Roland Berger Spielfeld, kindly respecting the guidelines as stated above. +++ The digital transformation of healthcare has only just begun. Across Europe people use the benefits of electronic health records, AI assisted symptom checkers, certified med tech devices to continuously monitor body vitals to adjust their medication and share their data with their doctors. In Germany we look at our insurance chipcard with our address on it, we phone specialty doctors for an appointment and cry tears of happiness when we get one in 6 months. We still run with our doctor’s prescription on paper to the pharmacy next door, video consultation is doable but not available and we lose our network connection on our mobile phones when travelling from Berlin to Hamburg. We hear a lot of talking that our system is one of the best, but where exactly are the beneficial digital health products and services for Germany in the next 3 years? Join our panel discussion on what we can experience coming up until 2020. Discover best practice examples on how they are going to be implemented and find out if there’s still room for more. Agenda: 18:30 Doors open 18:50 doors close for RSVP'ed who don't show up on time, subscribers of waiting list on location get the free spots of the RSVP no shows.

  • The Future of Clinical Trials: The Good, the Bad and the Digital

    As medicine grows more specialized and data-driven, the need to adapt and rethink the current medical affairs becomes imperative. At the same time, the health industry is moving to a new paradigm, Medical Affairs 2.0, where data mining combined with medical expertise are becoming critical for R&D and commercial counterparts and its role in product launch is getting strategically crucial. Based on a study presented by Bain company, clinician-scientists have reduced their reliance on pharma sales representatives turning to more scientific sources of information in the healthcare industry. That shift is even more pronounced among younger physicians. In parallel, the total number of sales representatives at big pharmas has fallen in the past years. The Internet of Things and emerging technologies offer many undeniable advantages to becoming the “new norm”. In regards to clinical research, data can be collected more easily and over longer periods of time. Overall, collaboration, cooperation and transparency will provide the new directions for clinical researchers. In collaboration with our long-term Health 2.0 Berlin friend Nana Bit-Avragim and some pioneering digital health companies such as Viomedo and Medicinisto, Charité–Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and Ernst & Young Germany, we are going to discuss innovations and current trends in clinical trials to reinvent key opinion leader management and build on value measures and progress towards data-driven, user-centric clinical trials operation.

  • Interoperabilität: Mobile Health vernetzen mit Praxis- und Kliniksystemen

    (Event will be in German) Potentiell behandlungsrelevante mHealth-Anwendungen müssen mit Praxis- und Kliniksystemen kommunizieren können. Dem Arzt das Smartphone zu zeigen oder Gesundheitsdaten ungesichert per E-Mail oder über WhatsApp zu senden sind keine gangbaren Wege im Gesundheitsbereich. Eine für den Behandlungskontext relevante App muss also nicht nur stand-alone funktionieren, vielmehr muss die App ihre Daten auch an die IT-Systeme einer Praxis oder eines Krankenhauses übertragen oder von dort abrufen können. Nicht zu vernachlässigen sind außerdem andere Heilberufe wie beispielsweise die Pflege und die dort relevanten Systeme. Ein zentrales Prinzip bei der Entwicklung von Schnittstellen zwischen IT-Systemen ist das der Interoperabilität, welche durch das Einhalten gemeinsamer Standards ermöglicht wird. Die Umsetzung einer Schnittstelle, über die App-Hersteller auf der einen Seite und KIS- und PVS-Hersteller auf der anderen Seite miteinander kommunizieren können, führt neben einer fehlerfreien Übermittlung auch zu Kostensenkungen und zu einer flexibleren Nutzung und größeren Verbreitung von Apps. Welche Standards sind nun für die Anbindung von mHealth-Anwendungen an KIS- oder PVS-Systeme relevant? In der klassischen digitalen Gesundheitswirtschaft spielen die Standards von HL7 (Health Level Seven) und IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) eine zentrale Rolle, mHealth wird über den neuen HL7 Standard FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Ressources) abgebildet. Das Meet-Up „Interoperabilität: Mobile Health vernetzen mit Praxis- und Kliniksystemen“ gibt Teilnehmern - also einerseits Startups aus dem Bereich mHealth, sowie andererseits den im Bundesverband Gesundheits-IT - bvitg e. V. organisierten Softwareherstellern aus den Bereichen KIS und PVS, die Möglichkeit, mehr über die technischen Themen FHIR und IHE zu erfahren. KIS- und PVS-Hersteller des Bundesverbands Gesundheits-IT stellen ihre Sicht auf das Thema Mobile Apps und deren Integration in ihre Systeme dar. Vor allem aber soll der Abend den Teilnehmern aus den beiden Welten die Möglichkeit geben, miteinander ins Gespräch zu kommen, neue Kontakte zu knüpfen und neue Ideen und Kooperationen zu entwickeln. ========================================================= Agenda 18:30Uhr: Open Doors 19:00 Uhr: Begrüßung (Ekkehard Mittelstaedt, bvitg e.V. + Vertreter Health 2.0 Berlin & HealthCapital) 19:05 Uhr: Vorträge (jeweils 15 Minuten) - Smarte Kommunikation mit niedergelassenen Ärzten (Rico Tetmeyer, medatixx GmbH & Co.

Dr. Frank Oemig Nach dem Studium der Informatik mit dem Nebenfach theoretische Medizin und dem Abschluss Diplom hat Hr. Oemig mehrere Jahre im Bereich ICT gearbeitet. Durch die Studien begleitenden Tätigkeiten hat Hr.Oemig inzwischen fast 35 Jahre Erfahrung im Bereich Informationstechnologie, davon entfallen 34 auf Healthcare IT und 26 auf Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie (ICT) für Healthcare.1993 begann Hr.Oemig sich dann für den Datenaustausch im Gesundheitswesen zu interessieren, was zur Beschäftigung mit Fragen der semantischen Interoperabilität (HL7, IHE und DICOM) geführt hat. Auf diesem Gebiet promovierte er dann auch 2011. Seit kurzem ist er bei der Deutschen Telekom Healthcare and Security Solutions GmbH als eHealth Architekt beschäftigt. Dr. Ralf Brandner studierte bis 1998 Medizinische Informatik an der Universität Heidelberg und der Fachhochschule Heilbronn. Anschließend arbeitete er am Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg als wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter und promovierte 2002 er an der Universität Heidelberg.

  • New Year’s Resolutions for 2017: An Invitation to Healthy Aging

    We are starting the year with a celebration - Health 2.0 Berlin is 5! And we are celebrating with a meetup: In the time of constant (exponential) movement, nothing is so exciting as to staying healthy as we age. Still, despite real progress in medicine helping us to live healthier and longer than ever, there is no magic bullet in sight that could turn years back or even stop aging. If we conquer illness, can we also look at aging as such? What if we rethink our current understanding of aging by beginning at the cellular level and reorganizing our body’s ability to regenerate? How artificial intelligence and robotics are having a transformative impact on a process of aging? And what are the ways to disrupt longevity? There are still plenty of unanswered questions and so much to do! With support of Health 2.0 Berlin, SingularityU Berlin Chapter presents its first chapter event and together with international leading experts in medicine, life sciences, entrepreneurship and IT technologies would like to invite you to an exciting journey in the world of “healthy aging”. We will start with a comprehensive overview on aging given by Maneesh Juneja (http://maneeshjuneja.com) , Digital Health Futurist from London, UK followed by a panel discussion with Prof. Hans-Christian Gunga (http://charite-in-space.de/portfolio/hanns-christian-gunga), Center for Space Medicine and Extreme Environments at Charite, Berlin, Germany; Dr. Sara Wickström (https://www.age.mpg.de/science/research-labs/wickstroem/cv), Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Cologne, Germany; John Crawford (https://uk.linkedin.com/in/johncrawfordibm/de) IBM Watson Healthcare Technology Europe; Daniel Nathrath (https://ada.com), Founder and CEO of Ada Digital Health Ltd., UK/Germany. Agenda: 18:30 Doors open 19:00 Welcome and Intro 19:10 Presentation by Maneesh Juneja 19:40 Panel discussion 20:45 Networking Speaker: Maneesh Juneja (http://maneeshjuneja.com) Digital Health Futurist from London, UK Maneesh Juneja is a Digital Health Futurist who explores the convergence of emerging technologies to see how they can make the world a healthier and happier place. In 2016, he was ranked 7th most influential in Digital Health, and at the beginning of 2015, Maneesh Juneja was ranked 10th most influential in Wearable Technology. In 2012, he left the security of his career at GlaxoSmithKline, to immerse himself in the new world of Digital Health. In the same year, Maneesh also founded the Health 2.0 London Chapter, which has since become the UK’s largest grassroots health tech community. In a career spanning 20 years, Maneesh has worked with data to improve decision-making across a number of industries. From supporting the Whitehall study at University College London, managing the Tesco database at DunnHumby, and most recently, working with the world’s largest U.S. & European patient databases at GlaxoSmithKline R&D. Prof. Hans-Christian Gunga (http://charite-in-space.de/portfolio/hanns-christian-gunga), Center for Space Medicine and Extreme Environments at Charite, Berlin, Germany Prof. Gunga started his career at the Department of Physiology at the Free University of Berlin, Germany in 1987 with experimental and clinical cardio-vascular studies in humans such as during bed rest, head-down tilt and extensive physical exercise. He performed studies on intravascular-interstitial fluid shifts, plasma volume and red blood cell mass control as well as renal physiology in humans under extreme environmental and physical conditions including research in Antarctica and space. The results have been published in high ranked scientific journals such as Journal of Applied Physiology, Lancet, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Since 2001 Gunga focused his research fields on thermoregulation and heat balance in humans in extreme environments. He has been involved in several space missions (D-1, D-2, MIR, ISS) and is currently ESA Principal Investigator of the Circadian Rhythm experiment on the International Space Station which will last until 2018. His recent published books “Nathan Zuntz” and “Human Physiology in Extreme Environments” received the “Life Science Book Award” of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) in 2010 and 2015, respectively. Prof. Gunga is currently deputy director of the Department of Physiology of the Charite University Medicine Berlin, speaker of the Center of Space Medicine and Extreme Environments, and among others Member of Wissenschaftlicher Beirat für das Sanitäts- und Gesundheitswesen beim Bundesminister für Verteidigung (Wehrmedizinischer Beirat) (Medical Advisory Board of the Military Medical Service of the German Federal Ministry of Defense) and Chairman of the “Programausschuss des Deutschen Zentrums für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR)”. Dr. Sara A. Wickström (http://www.age.mpg.de/science/research-labs/wickstroem/), Max Planck Research Group Leader, Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Cologne, Germany Sara Wickström studied medicine at the University of Helsinki, Finland and absolved a M.D/PhD. program receiving her MD in 2001 and PhD in 2004. In 2010 she was appointed as a Max Planck Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for the Biology of Ageing in Cologne, Germany. Her research addresses a set of fundamental questions in the fields of regenerative medicine and cancer biology: What are the mechanisms that control the stem cell state? How can this phenotype be dynamically adapted to the changing need of an organ/organism? How are the unique properties of stem cells harnessed during malignant transformation and compromised during aging? Her group uses mammalian skin epidermis as a model to study how stem cell behaviour, tissue morphogenesis, and homeostasis is controlled by cell and tissue-level mechanics as well as by chemical and physical interactions between different cell types and the extracellular matrix. In addition, she investigates how these processes are perturbed during ageing and age-related disease such as cancer.
