Digitalization is gaining momentum in the healthcare environment. Connectivity within the Embedded Cloud is explicitly oriented to the requirements of the Medical 4.0 concept for the networked hospital. These include: low latencies, fast analyses and on-site decisions as well as a high level of security. For this purpose, the systems involved in the medical care process on the hospital premises are combined to form a local network.
Digital applications have great potential for the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of diseases. In addition, digitized processes can be used to optimize ongoing treatments. This starts in the GP's practice and extends to the hospital if treatments or even operations should become necessary there. Digitalization leads to leaner and more transparent processes in the healthcare sector. This results in cost reductions, faster and more well-founded diagnoses, improved treatment quality and, finally, better utilization of resources and equipment.
