The Most Exciting Swiss Medical Informatics Conference in 2019

Bern University of Applied Sciences will host a conference which reflects some of the results of a two year multi stakeholder Swiss research program in medical informatics. The research program, starting 2016, saw 25 stakeholders cooperating for an integrated cross-sectoral treatment pathway with the goal to avoid communication gaps and information loss among the different participants within the treatment process. A major goal was to improve and accelerate healthcare processes and to empower the patient to play an active and decisive role within his own care process.

An interdisciplinary treatment pathway from home to home for a patient with hip arthrosis – can we avoid information loss? Home care and disease prevention (1), case history (2), diagnostics and referral (3), indication for surgery (4), intervention and postoperative treatment (5) and rehabilitation (6)

In an international meeting located in beautiful Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, we invite you to experience advanced interaction between caregivers, patients and healthcare institutions based on modern information technology. Our goal is to improve and accelerate healthcare processes and to empower the patient to play an active and decisive role within his own care process.

Take the opportunity to actively participate in this unique conference and to compete for Brönnimann’s Award.
