Herzinsuffizienz – new tools in “MI” box?
The focus of this year's HiGHmed annual general assembly will be on our use case Cardiology. This use case addresses one of the most important health and economic conditions in Germany and the western industrial nations - heart failure. Although medical progress has improved patient treatment in recent decades, the course of the ailment is characterized by recurrent deterioration, which is particularly tormenting for patients. New concepts are urgently needed to improve the situation of the individual patient and this is where the use case comes into play. The patient data already stored in the health system, which are in general very heterogeneous and unstructured, will be made more usable for the treatment of the individual patient.
With the start of the development and networking phase at the beginning of 2018, the use case Cardiology working group expanded by including further clinical sites and commenced patient recruitment.
The event language will be German.
