Heidelberg has created an internal repository for relevant clinical case discussion and medical education. Doctors, researchers, students, educators and residents use MEDTING within their institution to perform clinical reviews, conduct research, obtain second opinions and provide clinical decision support.
The platform automatically allows sending relevant clinical cases and images from the PACS to their private installation of MEDTING. This means that Heidelberg University can use MEDTING as a private platform to share, publish, and review its exclusive content that will only be available within Heidelberg University.
MEDTING will be used for creating a teaching and academic repository directly from clinical daily activity, connecting clinician community into a social web platform accessible from an Intranet, creating an educational repository for use in accreditation and training certifications. The platform can also be used for telemedicine and online clinical session discussion.

With a 600-year history, the University of Heidelberg is one of the highest-ranking locations in the world for international science and scholarship. The University Hospital is proud of this tradition and strives to be on top of medical research and implement state-of-the-art innovations in therapy and diagnostics. As one of the world’s top teaching hospitals, it is committed to staying on the leading edge of innovation.

 Heidelberg means innovation

The University Hospital of Heidelberg is one of the biggest medical centers in Germany. About 7,100 medical professionals in more than 40 clinics and departments are taking care of about 800,000 patients per year, following the latest standards in healthcare.

In 2003, the hospital began rolling out GE CENTRICITY RIS/PACS throughout the 1500-bed hospital – the largest installation of its kind in Europe. It was a two-year project implemented in phases aiming at covering general diagnostics, cardiology and radiology.

The PACS installation was part of a larger, more ambitious IT project. In 2004, Heidelberg opened a new 280-bed medical center focused on internal medicine with intensive care units (ICUs) and intermediate care units (IMCs) for cardiology and gastroenterology among others. All beds are monitored, also in the non-acute wards, with either stationary or mobile monitoring.

The project implements the Medting Academy Solution.
