From 06 to 08 May 2014, the conhIT – Europe’s largest and most important trade fair for information technology in healthcare – convened again numerous actors of the healthcare industry. Several ICCAS employees took the opportunity to gain information about new products and developments and to get into technical discussions with fellow researchers, producers and operators at the industrial fair and congress.
The DPM group attended workshops on data protection and patient rights – basics that need to be taken into account when handling electronic data. Furthermore, events were visited that gave the latest knowledge about systems that allow optimal treatment decisions. Self-learning computer systems with the inclusion of human language will play an important role in future health care.
For the lighthouse project OR.NET – where ICCAS works on therapy and information processing standards – the conhIT provided a successful platform to present the latest research results and to stimulate the interest of prospective partners. The second public status symposium informed about the developments in relation to the OR.NET integration architecture, communication protocol and current data model.
