How can Digital Health contribute to Pandemic Mitigation? Examples from Berlin and Zurich
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is the first worldwide epidemic in which mobile smartphone apps are used extensively to fight infection. New analytical methods, for example from the field of machine learning, are also being used.
However, some things have not changed compared to previous health crises. Decisions need good data, and during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, these had to be collected and processed within a few months.
What experiences have researchers and public health practitioners had with new digital tools? What old familiar and new problems have they encountered during their work? And will the surge in digitization triggered by the pandemic change the healthcare system in the long term? How can data from different systems be specified and brought together based on international standards? What challenges arise when data has to be made available quickly in compliance with data protection regulations? These and other questions will be discussed at the workshop.
Researchers from Charité Berlin and the University of Zurich will take turns in reporting on their work and highlight differences and similarities in approach and framework conditions in the two countries.
Learn first-hand about the digital research activities of the two universities. The event will take place digitally.
