Nuremberg Digital Festival 2022: The jubilee event at the Museum of the Future begins!

NUREMBERG (pm / nf) – Bavarian Health Minister Klaus Holetschek called for accelerating the development of a national strategy for health data and digitization: At a press conference at the start of the Nuremberg Digital Festival on Monday in Nuremberg, Holetschek said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has reached, but also deficits in digitization in the German healthcare system. Digitization offers many opportunities to improve our healthcare system. To provide need-based and patient-centered care, we need greater sustainability and efficiency in the use of health data. ”

The Minister stressed: “We must be successful in using health data for care, but also for research, while protecting data – in the interest of patients. To do this, we need international standards and clear guidelines: Why do we collect data and how do we ensure that it is actually used only for these purposes? ”. data is essential. It must be possible to exchange data, and this data must be directly used across all sectors and between systems across Europe. The enormous importance of these data for research on the one hand, and the particular sensitivity on the other hand, require clear regulation. “
Holetschek underlined: “I expressly welcome the proposed European Health Data Area (EHDS) regulation by the European Commission. This is expected to bring about a fundamental shock to the digital transformation of healthcare in Europe, with an emphasis on citizens. ‘

In addition to analyzing large amounts of data to improve the accuracy of research and diagnosis, interoperability, that is, the exchange of data between systems and sectors, has great potential. This is exactly where it also binds Climate and Health Hackday Jul 6, 2022 organized by the Bavarian Ministry of Health and Welfare together with the Nuremberg Digital Festival.

We look forward to the Nuremberg Digital Festival 2022: Ingo Di Bella (managing director of the Nuremberg Digital Festival) and festival director Tina Langheinrich.
