Telekom Healthcare Solutions is developing new technologies to drive healthcare digitalization by involving patients, medical staff, and healthcare institutions at the start of the process. Experts for healthcare digitalization agree that co-creation is key to the healthcare sector successfully adopting such trends as 5G, AI and IoT.
The design-thinking method, adapted for the healthcare sector, gives users’ requirements top priority. It links creative-thinking processes, and design workflows, with current technological, scientific, and economic approaches.
The results can be tested in point-of-care (POC) environments, under real-world conditions, in cooperation with partners and customers. Products that test successfully are then introduced to the healthcare market. This basic approach played a key role in the development of Medical Asset Tracking, a solution for the localisation of medical equipment.
