– this is ten universities with ten university hospitals, two universities of applied sciences and one industrial partner spread over seven German states. MIRACUM (Medical Informatics in Research and Care in University Medicine), as one of four consortia, receives funding of €37 Mio from BMBF to implement the envisaged projects. The spotlight is here on the data integration centres that will be embedded in the hospital IT-infrastructure and will facilitate the collection and exchange of data within the consortia university hospitals. Three use cases shall prove the effectivity of the innovative infrastructure with direct and prompt improvement of patient care. Data protection and data security are given top priority in this venture. Further we will elaborate a programme for strengthening medical informatics by extending the academic offer, including new professorships in the field of medical informatics, a novel, innovative master programme and personnel training.
