Robert Bosch Hospital becomes new member of the HiGHmed Association!

No quod sanctus instructior ius, et intellegam interesset duo. Vix cu nibh gubergren dissentias. His velit veniam habemus ne. No doctus neglegentur vituperatoribus est, qui ad ipsum oratio. Ei duo dicant facilisi, qui at harum democritum consetetur.

The Robert Bosch Hospital in Stuttgart is excited to be a member of the HiGHmed Association since 1 June 2022.

According to Dr Helia Berrit Schönthaler, Chief Operating Officer of the Robert Bosch Medical Research, the accession is intended to "boost the hospital's research area and enable better patient care", especially with regard to the HiGHmed Use Case Oncology: with the help of personalised cancer medicine, molecular analyses, DNA sequencing or protein analyses can be used to identify certain patterns regarding the effectiveness of therapies - for the benefit of patients.

The Robert Bosch Hospital sees the decisive advantage of networking as the possibility of breaking down the structures of clinics' own data silos through the HiGHmed network, processing patient data securely and in accordance with data protection regulations, and exchanging research results. To this end, the Robert Bosch Hospital is planning to set up its own Medical Data Integration Centre (MeDIC).

Background | History:

The Robert Bosch Hospital, which has a national reputation, goes back to a private initiative of the entrepreneur Robert Bosch in 1915. Today, around 3.000 employees provide up to 40.000 inpatients with state-of-the-art medicine and competent care every year. The main focus of the award-winning and certified clinic and the RBK Lung Centre Stuttgart is on the treatment of tumours and diseases of the heart, lungs and respiratory tract. Therapy is also available for complex and rare diseases. The Charlottenhaus Clinic, which is also part of the Robert Bosch Hospital, advises and cares for plastic surgery patients.

The Robert Bosch Hospital has been an academic teaching hospital of the University of Tübingen since 1978. It promotes the (intercultural) training of young medical and nursing staff in its own Irmgard Bosch Education Centre and, as one of the few non-university hospitals, is closely linked to the academic world through its own research facilities and projects. It is part of the Bosch Health Campus (BHC), newly founded in March of this year, which bundles all institutions and funding activities of the Robert Bosch Stiftung in the field of health.

The HiGHmed Association and the Robert Bosch Hospital are looking forward to a constructive cooperation, measurable synergy effects as well as a lively exchange within the constantly growing HiGHmed network.
