Background & Position
Philipp Liebmann received his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science at Leipzig University of Applied Science, Germany. Additionally, he graduated as Master of Science in Computer Science from Leipzig University of Applied Science in 2007, as well. During his studies he worked in the fields of biomechanical engineering at the Biomechanics Laboratory Portland/Oregon, on software development, clinical evaluations, and medical image processing projects at the ICCAS, Leipzig.
Until August 2007, Philipp worked on a particle filter algorithm for segmenting blood vessels out of doppler ultrasound images. For this and other projects, he gained experience by constructing and building anatomical flow phantoms. Since 2008 he has been working in the field of Surgical Workflows. In particular, his research focus is on Surgical Workflows (S-WF) und Surgical Process Modelling (SPM) in order to develop a Surgical Workflow Management System (S-WFMS). From 2011 until 2014, he worked on further developments of standardizations for the clinical environment in the research field “Standards” (STD). One main achievement of the STD-group in which he was significantly involved was the establishment of an Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) – domain “Surgery” as a prerequisite for the improvement of the electronic data exchange between IT systems in healthcare.
