The best way to predict the future is to create it
You want to help, support and collaborate with other people so that they...
...as an engineer find technical solutions that people like and can easily incorporate into their lives to live healthier and more fulfilling lives.
...as a caregiver, can reduce the effort of planning and documentation through new technologies to spend more time with those being cared for.
...as a computer scientist, not only increase sales through technical progress, but above all improve people's quality of life.
...get socially involved and do a voluntary social year and can contribute new ideas to the social professions.
...as an educator, put the child back at the center of this society - not the machine. Technology may support this and make these professions more innovative and attractive.
...as a physiotherapist, enable patients to receive long-term treatment through digital applications in order to guide them to the causes of their problems.
...as a member of the mountain rescue team, enable people to receive help regardless of location, infrastructure or digital competence.
...as a grandchild, maintain the independence of their grandparents through innovative solutions.
How will the innovations actually be used? In the future, there will be new professions that can use the potential of new technologies in the field of digitization and robotics. This will support and relieve people working in the healthcare sector so that the "human resource" can be used where it is not being replaced. Thanks to the latest technologies, patients and family caregivers have the opportunity to remain self-determined at home for longer. In addition, the frequency of a visit to the doctor or hospital could also be revolutionized by shifting the healthcare system in the direction of "prevention".
Take some time to get some insights into future job profiles:
Health Application Engineer
"With a click on the start button your individual tour planning starts. In addition, their activities can be documented with little effort. The medications are also matched with a database in the background so that ordering is automatic." Kevin regularly holds training sessions at outpatient care facilities. In addition, he is the contact person for questions or feedback about the apps, and ultimately he takes care of continuous development and improvement. Kevin works closely with the caregivers, after all, he wants to help them work healthier.
IT Architect for eHealth
Clinics, health insurance companies, physio practices and pharmacies sit together at the same table. Ronja moderates the meeting and outlines the possible design of the new telematics infrastructure (TI). Ronja is a member of MedArch, an organization that will ensure a unified architecture and connect all stakeholders in the healthcare system. In addition to moderating, Ronja is allowed to prepare the migration of the various systems and is also the contact person for the manufacturers and service providers of the TI.
Health scientist with a focus on digitalization
After one week at the ETRIX children's home, Tim has not only grown fond of the children, but also knows the work processes of the educators. After just one week, he has already been able to identify where there is potential for standardization and thus approaches to digitization. Over the next few weeks, he will develop a concept for this and then introduce it directly on site at ETRIX. Moderating the working groups and conducting the training sessions are also part of his job. This means that his work is really beneficial for the educators and Tim can see the children he has grown fond of for even longer.
Health Innovation Manager
A soft beep is heard. Sandra turns around and automatically takes a step to the side. She can't help but smile as R2U drives past her with today's lunch menu to bring the patients their meal on time. R2U is an autonomously driving robot that looks like a normal food trolley when it is stationary, but independently supplies the patients with food during the day and then takes the dishes back to the kitchen. Sandra is responsible for introducing innovative systems into nursing care, and R2U not only improves Sandra's mood. Because the patients also feel how the caregivers are relieved.
Consultant Digital Transformation Healthcare
Openness and the courage to question and change systems are definitely part of Philipp's job. He is a consultant for digital transformation in healthcare and has been working with health insurance companies or hospitals in the area for the last few years. He has currently completed the process analysis in a smaller Helios clinic and can thus develop a concept for how work steps will be carried out more digitally - without paper documentation - in the future.
DiGA Product Manager
In front of her, Lucy sees the evaluation of today. It was a new record; between 11-12:00 her brain showed β-waves - brain waves that occur during stress. Fascinatingly, she was even able to measure α-waves yesterday at the Design Thinking workshop; these are responsible for creative states without analytical thinking. Lucy is a DiGA product manager and regularly receives new, innovative products. If she discovers potential in them, she is allowed to coordinate their further development and bring them to market. Just a few months ago, she was able to test a virtual reality application for the blind. Using audio stimulation, blind people were able to simulate movements in space so that they could virtually walk through the tropical rainforest.
Health IT specialist
One click - and the data is updated and available on the MedDat platform. Chris is responsible for the further development of the hospital information systems. Just last week, there was a company celebration because he was able to completely detach digital patient documentation from paper form thanks to his latest implementation. The nurses can now use their SmartGlasses to document their workflows. This saves 2-3 hours a day, which they can use more intensively for the patients. Chris has always wanted to help people in healthcare, but he also wanted to live out his affinity for technology. But now, with his job, he can apply his enthusiasm for computer science to improve care workflows.
