MII-Symposium 2022 - Save the date. Copyright: better to do everything you love

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.
