Hamburg – “During the transition from IT to digitization, experiences with the technology from 20 years ago often obscure future developments,” reports healthcare entrepreneur and congress president Prof. Heinz Lohmann. In this way we would all have learned not to allow isolated solutions in IT projects in the first place. A very important guiding principle in recent years has been: “Avoid interfaces, if possible all solutions from a single source, all in one system”. A whole series of IT departments that were newly created in the past are downright “guardians of the Grail” of these principles. But what was reasonable ten years ago is fundamentally wrong today. We would all carry around a smartphone that we took for granted. It is full of interfaces and connects any number of separate programs with each other. We wouldn’t be afraid to download the latest app if we expected even the slightest benefit from it. Prof. Lohmann literally continues: “In everyday working life, however, the technology myths celebrate happy origins”. Some clinic managers are still “digitalization dinosaurs”, but the future is very clear. It is important to use platforms on which many useful special applications work. However, all of this is not the focus of the forthcoming change. Technology, as important as it may be, is only the instrument. The treatment of patients must be unconditionally tailored to their needs. That is the real paradigm shift. Prof. Lohmann emphatically: “Now it’s time for action!”
