How To Digitise DNA
In 2015, the German Cancer Center in Heidelberg will embark
on an ambitious, venture capital financed IT project that combines
next generation sequencing with big data analytics, clinical decision
support and mobile data access. Could that become the blueprint for a
genetic medical record? What other efforts ‘made in Europe’ are out there?
More Regulation Or Less?
Genetic sequencing is becoming a commodity, and IT solutions could easily
help citizens to make sense of this mountain of data. Does that mean legal
constraints on genetic counselling are old-fashioned? Or do we need tight
regulation more than ever in order to protect citizens from drawing
the wrong conclusions? Join ‘The Debate’!
How To Make Ends Meet
The benefits of closed-loop medication systems are
well known. But European hospitals and doctors are
hesitant, and some even object. What are the success
factors for closed-loop implementations in Europe?
And where does all this scepticism come from?
What Doctors Really Want
Decision support tools with patronising alerts are a no-go for most doctors. What
they want is to access relevant clinical knowledge directly at the point of care.
Publishing houses, medical society and guideline committees are increasingly
coming to terms with these requirements. And they start to co-operate with
IT system providers in order to offer best possible knowledge services.
