Project Details



Around the globe eHealth and mHealth approaches gain in importance as strategies for improvement and efficiency enhancement of health care systems. Innovations in this sector are essential to make existing developments applicable in broader sense and to find new approaches in order to expand the technical lead. In practice, there are significant challenges for the implementation of innovative ideas like the interoperable integration of overall systems, the implementation of security and privacy or the supply of suitable test- simulation- and presentation environments. In the project INNOVATE, an Innovation Laboratory for medical technology and eHealth will be implemented at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. This laboratory gives an easy to use technological base to develop interoperability, security and usability based eHealth applications without specialist knowledge. Thus, it lowers the initial hurdles for developer teams (either for student or business developer teams). From user requirements to implementation of systems, the Innovation Lab demonstrates structured innovation processes.

Interoperable personal health devices


In course of the project software libraries for integration of mobile eHealth applications are implemented as well as developer kits in the fields of interoperability, open data, security, usability and accessibility are developed. In the end an integrated laboratory infrastructure for mobile eHealth applications will be established.
