Information about the Content

  • Medical informatics deals with the systematic organization, representation and analysis of data, information and knowledge in medicine and healthcare. The aim of medical informatics is to optimize the medical care process using digitization and to contribute to new knowledge in medicine and healthcare through research. For this purpose, medical computer science uses different methods of information technologies (such as: artificial intelligence, mobile systems, digital image processing,...) in healthcare.

    For this reason, theories, methods, procedures and techniques of computer science and other sciences are used and adapted to health care. Data security, data protection and patient security play an essential role in the development of network infrastructures, information and communication systems as well as software-based medical devices and apps.
