  • Prevention and Digital Health: From wearables to evidence-based medicine

    ThoughtWorks Berlin Deutschland GmbH

    (Siehe unten für Deutsch.) Please note that presentations will be held in GERMAN. This event is FREE, but places are limited, so register at Eventbrite to guarantee your place: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/pravention-und-digital-health-meetup-hacking-health-berlin-tickets-69570815181 ----------- There are tons of healthcare apps out there promising to improve your life and health. But are they any good? Is it a good idea to let them collect your data? And can they really help you stay—or finally become—healthier than before? According to a new German draft law, the answer is “YES.” The Digitale-Versorgung-Gesetz (DVG), championed by German Health Minister Jens Spahn, would allow doctors to prescribe the use of technology like health tracking apps. Supporters say it represents a significant step towards bringing healthcare in sync with an increasingly digital world. The DVG is likely to be passed into law later this year. But how would it look in practice? And what does it mean for patient privacy—and patient outcomes? Join Hacking Health Berlin for a discussion of digital health technologies, the DVG, and their implications for the wider healthcare system. You'll have the chance to hear and chat with the following speakers: Berlin Partner: Introduction of the Cluster for Healthcare Industry Berlin-Brandenburg—HealthCapital Lara Maier, Doctor for Prevention and Lifestyle Medicine, Hacking Health Berlin: "The Future of Digital Precision Medicine and Uses in Preventive Care" Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas P. Zahn, director of the fib Research Insitute at bbw University and Director of GeWINO at AOK Nordost: "The DVG: Using Long-Term Billing Data—An Overview of the German Research Data Center HLaN" Dr. Henrik Matthies, Managing Director, Health Innovation Hub des Bundesministeriums für Gesundheit: "Intro into 2020—oder Introduction to Digital Health Care in Germany" Paul Burggraf, Co-Founder and COO, mHealth Pioneers/Thrive: "Data Availability and Data Sensoring Technology" Jesaja Brinkmann, Co-Founder und Managing Director, Cara Care Isam Haddad, Co-Founder und CEO, Baze Markus Dahlem, Co-Founder und Managing Director, M-Sense This event is supported by the Cluster for Healthcare Industry Berlin-Brandenburg—HealthCapital. ------ DEUTSCH: (Alle Vorträge werden auf DEUTSCH gehalten.) Dieses Event ist kostenlos, aber Plätze sind begrenzt. Bitte meldet euch daher verbindlich bei Eventbrite an um euch einen Platz zu sichern: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/pravention-und-digital-health-meetup-hacking-health-berlin-tickets-69570815181 Es existieren inzwischen tausende von Healthcare-Apps mit dem Versprechen, dein Leben oder zumindest deine Gesundheit zu verbessern. Aber was können sie wirklich? Warum solltest du deine eigenen Daten aufzeichnen? Und werden sie dir tatsächlich dabei helfen, gesünder als zuvor zu werden und zu bleiben? Laut einem neuen Gesetzentwurf ist die Antwort „Ja“. Das „Digitale-Versorgungs-Gesetz“ (DVG), eingebracht von Jens Spahn, dem deutschen Bundesminister für Gesundheit, ermöglicht z.B. das Verschreiben von solchen Apps auf Rezept. Es stellt einen wichtigen Schritt dar, um das Gesundheitswesen mit der sich rapide entwickelnden digitalen Welt zu synchronisieren. Das DVG wird sehr wahrscheinlich bald im deutschen Bundestag verabschiedet. Doch wie wird das Gesetz in der Praxis aussehen? Und was bedeutet das für die Privatsphäre von Patienten – und deren Therapieerfolg? Sei mit Hacking Health Berlin dabei bei unserer Diskussion zum Thema „Prävention und Digital Health“ und dessen Auswirkungen auf das deutsche Gesundheitssystem. Die Veranstaltung wird durch das Cluster Gesundheitswirtschaft Berlin-Brandenburg–HealthCapital unterstützt.

  • Clinical Artificial Intelligence Conference & Datathon

    Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich

    RSVP HERE: datathon-munich.de #### Clinical Artificial Intelligence Conference & Datathon - MIT critical data 15.-17. May 2019 LMU Munich Clinical AI Conference & Datathon aims to foster collaboration between physicians and data scientists to improve patient care. Participants will deepen their understanding and skills of the extraction of clinically relevant knowledge form data during the conference keynote talks and hands-on workshops. They further have the opportunity to work on a challenging case study during the datathon running in parallel to the conference. Mankind has always been fascinated by the idea of creating technology that would match or even supersede human intelligence. While artificial intelligence after its birth in Dartmouth in 1956 had a rather slow start in medicine, new computational technologies and data acquisition, storage and analytic methods have arisen to allow the utilization of knowledge from millions of clinicians encoded in large clinical repositories. However, extracting this knowledge and translating it into clinical practice is a complex task, strewn with pitfalls. To identify and overcome these obstacles, international community efforts are required, combining the strengths of the knowledge of clinicians and data scientists. Therefore it is our mission to bring people together, combine strengths of these individual disciplines to achieve better patient care. Register here: datathon-munich.de What is a Datathon A Datathon in medicine is a format, where interdisciplinary teams work with a database or dataset to answer medically relevant questions. In our Datathon, we will provide a dataset extracted from the MIMIC III Intensive Care database. This format has recently gained great attention in the medical domain. Its interactive nature brings together various groups, such as medical professionals, data scientists, informaticians, epidemiologists, and healthcare industrialists. Hence, it enables highly efficient utilization of the enormous amounts of health data available these days. Different teams will work on the same dataset and results will be compared at the end of the conference. This is a great chance for medical professionals to get involved with and learn about methods and possibilities of statistics and machine learning, and for informatics, statisticians, and epidemiologists to learn about medicine.
