Digitally transforming healthcare

Demographic change, rising healthcare costs, and the acute shortage of skilled workers are increasingly challenging healthcare institutions. This calls for digital solutions and out-of-the-box thinking. Digitally transforming the healthcare sector offers new opportunities for service providers to position themselves in the healthcare market. Healthcare facilities that see the digital transformation as an opportunity and take the chance can use it to gain advantages in competition. Facing limited financial resources it is highly important for healthcare institutions to identify digital solutions and develop digitization strategies that add value for all stakeholders - for patients, employees and the organization.


An integral approach to the process of transformation

This is where we come in. As a strategic development partner, we support the digital transformation of hospitals, care facilities and medical practices. We are experts in digital process innovation, taking into account current developments in healthcare policy and funding as we develop strategies and adopt a holistic view of the transformation process. As the world's leading organization for applied research, we keep a close eye on the latest high-tech innovations and technology developments and provide our customers with the means to put them to good use.


  • Based on the objective and scope, we use a systematic process to identify and evaluate individual or multiple digitization solutions that create added value for your institution at all levels (patients, employees, company).

  • Depending on the identified solution, we verify the feasibility of the idea and prepare the next steps. As the world's leading organization for applied research we offer you for the development of your individual digitization solution exclusive access to high-tech innovations within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, which currently has 76 institutes and research facilities and over 30,000 employees.

  • We draw on our expertise in business development to provide support when you implement your digitization solution. In addition to the implementation at technology and process level, organizational and change management aspects are also considered.

  • Digitization means that the healthcare market, patients and service providers (have to) change. For that, we offer a project team of scientists who works with you to systematically develop business model ideas and assess their feasibility.
