We support companies of the healthcare industry with our services. Going forward we will personalize medicine by developing and evaluating digital solutions for improving individual patients’ health while protecting them and their data, securing diagnoses, and systematically documenting all information.

Our applications support preventive healthcare at home and at work, as well as diagnostics and therapy at physicians’ practices, in hospitals and clinics, and in connection with nursing and rehabilitation.


Time savings and cost efficiency thanks to the use of AI

Central to AI-enabled health research is the consideration of how humans can ultimately make full and proper use of the data generated and processed by artificial intelligence. Visual computing technologies are an essential component of this. For many years now, Fraunhofer IGD has been using machine learning and artificial intelligence methods and procedures to analyze and evaluate vital data, health data and disease-related patient data. These techniques include AI-based medical image processing, visual cohort analysis and anomaly detection in vital data.
