Living lab for the transfer of digital health applications and AI into healthcare

Start: 10/2022

End: 12/2024

A unique living lab for the use of AI in healthcare is opening at the FZI Research Center for Information Technology. Startups and companies will be supported in their product development with real-world healthcare data and expertise in the transfer to the public and economy.

Whether intelligent image recognition in cancer diagnostics, analyses, recommendations from fitness trackers or autonomous care robots, the ideas for using Artificial Intelligence in healthcare are diverse. With the living lab for the transfer of digital health applications and AI into healthcare (ROUTINE), the FZI Research Center for Information Technology offers a space for future research and supports companies in the transfer of digital health applications and AI into healthcare.

In addition to providing support with technical expertise and real-world health data, the focus is on identifying and overcoming barriers to transferring science and research into practice. For example, projects can be adapted to the legal or technical framework conditions at an early stage. Insights into active research provide opportunities for the public and the healthcare sector, such as hospitals, practices or health insurance companies, to expand their knowledge of AI in healthcare and learn about its potential.
