Smart Medical Technology for Healthcare

The SMITH Consortium – Smart Medical Information Technology for Healthcare – is developing innovative IT solutions for better medical care. To help accomplish this goal, seven of the ten university hospitals participating in the consortium are establishing Data Integration Centers. The aim of the generic infrastructure is to make data from routine care available for medical research. These steps are being done in close cooperation with the universities of Aachen, Jena and Leipzig, two non-university research institutions and four industrial partners. The use of the results by further network partners is possible via the SMITH Service Platform.

SMITH has been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the development and networking phase since January 2018.
