Symposium of the Medical Informatics Initiative:
Strengthening research and advancing healthcare
- Results and Perspectives
5th – 6th of october 2022
1st day: 10.00 am - 6.15 pm
2nd day: 9.00 am - 14.30 pm
Get-together: 5th of october, starting at 6.30 pm
Within the scope of the Medical Informatics Initiative, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), medical and IT professionals collaborate with researchers and scientists across multiple disciplines in German university hospitals. Their shared goal is to digitally capture hospital healthcare data, making these available for research – to provide faster and better medical treatments. At the same time, therapies can be improved for individual patients. The BMBF provides around 300 million euros with the aim of strengthening medical research and improving patient care. The coordination office is jointly managed by TMF (Technology, Methods and Infrastructure for Networked Medical Research), MFT (German Association of Medical Faculties), and VUD (German Association of Academic Medical Centers).
At the MII symposium, the results achieved by the initiative in the current funding phase (2018-2022) will be presented and discussed. In addition, an outlook on upcoming challenges in the upcoming phase (2023-2026) will be given.
The programme comprises the following sessions:
Session 1: The MII as the centrepiece of data-based health research in Germany
Session 2: How can researchers use data in the context of the MII?
Session 3: Networking of MII: from university hospitals to the outpatient and regional sector
Session 4: Digitilisation of medicine for better patient care: clinical use cases of MII
Session 5: Patient participation in the MII
Session 6: Policy framework for research data usage
Session 7: Medical informatics as a future-oriented research field: junior research groups of MII
More information on the programme and registration is forthcoming.
