Web conference: Digitization in diagnostics and clinics - opportunities and perspectives

Together with the Fraunhofer IWS organized biosaxony am 13 October 2020 from 09: 00-11: 30 pm, a web conference on the topic "Digitization in diagnostics and clinics - chances and perspectives".

The digitization of medicine is progressing rapidly. Accelerated by the Corona crisis, new digitization strategies are developing both in the clinical environment and in diagnostics. Laboratory tests, which until recently took weeks to be evaluated, can now be called up online after a day. Of course, this trend also affects the suppliers of medical products and requires both the digitization of manufacturing processes and new data-driven services to expand existing products.

The web conference uses concrete projects from industry and applied science to show how different actors are tackling these challenges.
