Workshop: Health Innovation - IT Innovation in Medical



Prim. Univ.Prof. Dr Herbert Reitsamer, VR Digitalisierung & Innovation, PMU Paracelsus Medical University, Austria

Mag. MBA Bruno Wöran (lead moderaor)
PMU Paracelsus Medical University, Austria
Digital Health and MedTech Innovation - Innovation by AI, Big Data, Machine Learning, VR/AR,  Cybersecurity, new safety norms - and what is next?

This workshop will have key statements (pitch talks) about innovation processes in medical, how to cope with changes due to new IT developments such as AI, Big Data, Machine Learning, VR/AR,  Cybersecurity, new safety norms. It includes pitch talks by experts. It results in a panel discussion about how to cope with the challenges and what is next.

The workshop results will lead to a visionary paper by the contributors to be published in the WILEY journal of EuroSPI.

The main paradigm is that nowadays all systems become part of systems of systems in a cloud and this new complexity brings a large number of benefits but as well of challenges. The new innovation processes also require to manage this transfer and integration of new highly advanced technologies into medical. 

The workshop will be moderated by the Paracelsus medical university in Salzburg which has scientific and industry connections world wide, and includes speakers from industry.

Additional Information

Key Contributors

The goal of this workshop community is to share experiences with the implementation of the different medical device industry norms, to discuss new upcoming norms, and also to present and discuss experiences with the usage of new technologies (e.g. programmable chips, intelligent sensors, etc.). Also the use of assessment models in medical device industry will be be discussed.

BBraun as a major medical industry company, Dundalk Institute of Technology as a research organisations , Softcomply and Lorit Consultancy as experienced consulting companies in the medical device industry area are moderating the workshop.

Interactive Workshop Approach

Focus of interest and main questions discussed during the workshop will be:
  • Best practices to implement medical device industry norms
  • Best practices for system and software architecture including the required safety aspects
  • Best practices with assessment models and improvement programs
  • Best practices with the application of new design issues / patterns (programmable chips, intelligent sensors, Internet of THings connections, etc.)
  • How would an existing organisation adapt to the new technologies
  • How would an existing organisation adapt to the requied standards
  • Is there a list of influence and success factors / criteria

Each presentation will be discussed towards these main topics of interest. A panel discussion at the end shall come up with a summary of the solutions presented and with new research topics to focus on to solve this integrated approach (work for next year to meet at next EuroAsiaSPI² and share again).
