Digital Medicine

Medical engineering is an innovative and rapidly growing sector of the German export industry that is currently experiencing a revolution due to the digital transformation and an increased use of machine-learning processes.

In order to ensure a secure and reliable use of machine learning for medical products and to gain society’s trust and acceptance of digital medicine, the metrological inspection and validation of data quality, and of the diagnostic and prognostic models based on this data, are essential. Companies, hospitals, authorities and notified bodies work together to develop quality assurance measures for digital medicine in the Digital MedLabs of the Innovation Center for Systems Metrology. The aim is to make products and services available to patients in a safe and timely manner.
