eHealth-Symposium Southwest 2024

BIC, Trippstadter Str. 110, 67663 Kaiserslautern

Become part of the 7th eHealth-Symposium Southwest!

The current hype surrounding artificial intelligence, particularly generative AI such as ChatGPT, is also omnipresent in the healthcare sector. Thanks to the digital transformation, a lot of information is now available in digital form and can be exchanged in a standardized manner in compliance with data protection regulations. The task now is to use this data. Virtual assistants promise support for tedious and error-prone activities in medical practice, research and administration.

How can sustainable eHealth solutions be achieved beyond the lighthouse character? Will the flood of information be worsened or improved by generative AI such as ChatGPT? E-health should serve people, how do I involve users appropriately?

These and other questions will be discussed at the eHealth Symposium Southwest 2024. An interdisciplinary audience of experts from the fields of medicine, research and business will be exchanging ideas about innovative solutions in the eHealth southwest of Germany for the 7th time in 2024.

Since the first event in 2018, more than 100 stakeholders have exchanged ideas annually on current and future uses of artificial intelligence, Big Data, precision medicine and other innovative ideas.

The organizers are the Business + Innovation Center Kaiserslautern (bic), Empolis Information Management GmbH, Westpfalz-Klinikum GmbH and the 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry & Health.

The participation is certified with 6 continuing education points by the Bezirksärztekammer Pfalz.

We look forward to welcoming you!
