06.02.2020: ICU Cockpit by Prof. Dr. Emanuela Keller (USZ)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Medical knowledge has a half-life of just a few years, while medical staff struggle to keep up with the explosion of information. In addition, the volume of medical data per patient is increasing exponentially in the field of precision medicine. In intensive and emergency medicine, the situation is compounded by real-time signals from multiple sensors on, as well as inside the human body. In an emergency situation, in particular, it is not possible to integrate this flood of information rapidly into the decision-making process.

ICU-Cockpit is a joint IT research project between the University, ETH Zurich, IBM Research and Supercomputing Systems, that aims to create an integrated platform for patient monitoring and therapy support. Data from numerous medical devices are synchronized, and algorithms for early alarm systems and therapy support are developed, with the initial focus on multimodal neuromonitoring and the prevention of secondary brain injuries.

The project is aimed at initiating a fundamental development in emergency and intensive medicine and bringing about a substantial improvement in the way diagnostics, treatment and risk management are handled in everyday clinical practice.

ABOUT EMANUELA KELLER

Prof. Emanuela Keller is Head of Neurocritical Care Unit at the University Hospital in Zurich and Associate Professor of Neurocritical Care at the University of Zurich. She has specializations in internal medicine, intensive care medicine and as an emergency physician. She held various positions in Swiss and European hospitals and founded in 2007 the spin-off company NeMoDevices, today Luciole Medical.

08.01.2020: WiDH presents Karina Candrian (Medtech Entrepreneur)

We are very excited to announce that our next guest speaker will be Karina Candrian, Medtech Entrepreneur.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Healthcare innovators often struggle to bring their products to market. One of the reasons is the increasing regulatory requirements, especially due to the introduction of MDR/IVDR.

There are fears that numerous innovations will not make it onto the market, or at least only with big delay. This, due to prohibitively high costs for maintaining product approvals or new approvals under the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) / In Vitro Medical Device Regulation (IVDR). Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are especially vulnerable.

Karina Candrian will talk about the challenges SMEs are facing with the introduction of the new MDR / IVDR and will present examples of innovators and medical technology companies that have overcome the obstacles of increasing regulatory requirements.

Complementary, Dr. sc. Susanne Suter (Project Manager and Software Engineer, Supercomputing Systems) will illustrate a practical show-case of a machine-learning-based medical software application, which is at the beginning of the medical certification process.

ABOUT KARINA CANDRIAN

Karina Candrian holds a Master’s degree in Economics from the University of Zurich and has more than 18 years of experience in the healthcare industry. Through her work as a consultant and in operative responsibilities in various management positions of MedTech companies she has profound experience not only in this industry, but also throughout the entire value chain, from strategic alignment, product idea up to sales and distribution.

She is founder of 3 companies, all dedicated to innovation in Healthcare. As co-founder and CEO of Effectum Medical, she is dedicated in accelerating innovation in MedTech by offering services in quality management and regulatory affairs and acting as legal manufactures for customers.
