Horizontale Innovationen zur Produkt- und Prozessoptimierung

H-05: "Certified Professional for Medical Software" (CPMS) training program

The "Certified Professional for Medical Software" (CPMS) initiative aims to achieve a uniform standard for basic and in-service training for people familiar with the development and quality assurance of software in medical products and as a medical product in its own right.

The initiative specifies a curriculum and examination modalities leading to a cross-provider certificate. The Members of the Board supervise the quality of the curriculum and of the examination procedure.

H-01: Prospective Health Technology Assessment (ProHTA)

The purpose of the "Prospective Health Technology Assessment Medical Valley EMN" (ProHTA) project is to set up a scientific service platform to assess innovative health technologies before they are launched on the market. ProHTA describes 1) The effect of new technologies and products on the quality and cost of healthcare; 2) Efficiency potential within the healthcare chain which can be leveraged with the aid of new technologies and products.

Medical engineering is characterized by a high pace of innovation.

H-04: Data quality and innovative capability of medical products

The integration of medical products into the actual workflows and working processes of a productive environment is a difficult, time-consuming and cost-intensive task for both manufacturers and operators. Despite the standardization of DICOM and HL7, the integration of software components and medical products into a hospital information system still represents a huge task, owing to a lack of appropriate validation environments. The objective of this project is to create a generic test environment for medical products and a method of systematic generation of appropriate test data.


H-02: Real-time ERP system for medical care centers (MCCs) and amalgamated medical practices

Within the framework of the Medical Valley Leading Edge Cluster, ASTRUM IT is developing a communication platform to support practicing physicians. This platform can house applications that address a variety of needs experienced by medical practices.

In Germany, there is a considerable demand for cross-practice collaboration. Clinical disease patterns are becoming ever more complex; growing sub-specialization within the medical profession is boosting demand even further. With the introduction of medical care centers and the possibility of special contracts (e.g.
