dHealth 2023: Health Informatics meets Digital Health

As every year, dHealth brought together decision-makers and experts from science, politics, business and the healthcare sector from May 16-17, 2023 to present the latest research results and practical findings and discuss innovative solutions for improving healthcare. This year, the focus was on prevention, health data and interoperability.

Our Digital Healthcare Solutions research group was represented with a stand and Franz Feichtner, Philip Stampfer and Julian Gutheil. At our stand, there were not only tricky puzzles to solve but also tough decisions to make in a competition. Visitors to the stand were able to guess the number of Lego figures in a box.

As part of the program, with the support of Joakim Huber from Franziskus Hospital Vienna, we were able to present a contribution to cross-professional, patient-centered collaboration in geriatrics (our therapy/monitoring system - TMS). We also presented current results from our IdRis project. Here we are developing algorithms for AI-supported prediction of the risk potential of older people in hospital using RealWorldData.
Our key takeaways from this year's conference are:

  • Prevention still plays too small a role in the health sector. In the context of the IdRis project, we are addressing this issue.
  • The meaningful use of health data plays a key role in both the EuropeanHealthDataSpace and our CDS-BARS Ökosystem eine wichtige Rolle.
  • Interoperability between digital systems is essential for successful process integration. FHIR is therefore involved in the further development of the TMS and the digital OPCheck list is an important aspect.
  • Our ELGA system is ingenious and we are well equipped throughout Europe for the further digitalization of the healthcare system, but we must continue to develop it intelligently and manage to connect all healthcare providers.
  • Digitalization can only succeed if we involve those involved, especially the nursing profession. This requires strong nursing informatics and we are therefore delighted that the Austrian Society for Nursing Informatics made a strong appearance.
