The digital transformation has long been ubiquitous and also affects the healthcare sector. During their four-week stay in Germany, the participants of the delegation of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) GmbH were able to get an idea of the extent to which this has already been implemented in clinics and other care facilities in Germany.

Within this framework, the 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry & Health organized an event last week which brought together representatives of clinics and care institutions from Eastern Europe and South America with German startups and corporates.

The event was kicked off by an introduction from Digital Hub’s Marco Majer who presented the Federal Digital Hub Initiative and the 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry&Health.
