Why Medi.NET?

The digital transformation in the healthcare sector offers great opportunities to improve the quality of care in operating theaters and clinics.

Until now, individual solutions have prevented comprehensive data exchange and standardized device operation. Against this backdrop, the open and manufacturer-independent networking of medical devices represents a promising solution. It has the potential to revolutionize and significantly relieve the healthcare market by exploiting synergy effects. Networking leads to data fusion, automated documentation and standardized user interfaces, thus improving clinical processes.

Everyday life in the clinic:

More then 17 Million operations in Germany/ per year
Documentation takes more then 50% of work-time.
Paper trail, phone calls to get simple information and USB Sticks are still in massive use.
Different protocols contain same data multiple times.
Multiple user experiences by different vendor devices lead to usability issues.
