The aim of the R&D project  "AI-based real-time detection of atrial fibrillation and integration into a wearable medical sensor device” (ARTEMIS)" is to develop a miniaturized, artificial intelligence (AI)-based electrocardiogram (ECG) patch for more efficient, digital healthcare to enable early diagnosis of atrial fibrillation (VHF). With almost two million people affected, VHF is one of the most widespread diseases in Germany, which can result in serious secondary diseases such as stroke if not treated early.

Duration: 2021-2024

The aim of the ResKriVer project is to develop a digital platform for collecting, documenting and analyzing information about supply networks for crisis-relevant goods and resources. With the help of ResKriVer, the resilience of these networks in the event of a crisis and disaster is to be strengthened, and secondly the platform improves communication with both the population and with crisis teams.

Telemedical support for patients with chronic heart failure has been proven essential. But so far, a single telemedicine center cannot care for more than 500 patients. The Telemed5000 project of the Charité – Medical University Berlin aims to develop an intelligent system for telemedical support for several thousand cardiological risk patients. With the help of innovative technical possibilities, the project is set up for success.

Sponsor: Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy

Duration: 2019-2022


The aim of the project is the development and testing of a 5G-based continuous vital data transfer in combination with an AI-based clinical decision support system for the telemedical care of patients after implantation of a permanent left ventricular assist system (LVAD).

Sponsor: Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action

Duration: 2021-2024

The project was awarded the Max Rubner Prize 2020 from the Charité Foundation.

Sponsor: Charité Foundation

Duration: 1.1.2020 - 31.12.2022


The TRICORDER project started at the beginning of October 2015 and ran until the end of September 2018. The project was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the initiative "On-site analytics with photonic methods for use in the life sciences". Collaborative partners were the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB (Karlsruhe), getemed Medizin- und Informationstechnik AG (Teltow) and POLYTEC GmbH (Waldbronn).

The Center for Cardiovascular Telemedicine was a clinical subcontractor of getemed Medizin- und Informationstechnik AG.


NexGen - Next Generation of Body Monitoring

The Project Next Generation of Body Monitoring (NexGen), targeted to develop key micro-electronic technologies and components for future mobile/wearable health care systems. The feasibility should be demonstrated along 2 interconnected ubiquitous body monitoring systems of high social and economic importance, an implanted glucose monitor and a non-invasive on-body multi-parameter monitor. It was pinpointed that these body monitoring systems facilitate new business cases in the mobile health care system.

This european Research and Development Project was realised in the Charité in cooperation with Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases (Director: Prof. Dr. med. J. Spranger)

Coordinator: Infineon Technologies AG, Munich/Germany

Funding Volume Charité: ca. 710,000 EUR


Health region of the future Northern Brandenburg - Fontane

The project is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research over a period of ten years (2009-2018).

The aim of the project is the improvement of the health care for cardiovascular diseases in structurally underdeveloped rural areas by using broad application of modern IT-systems (Telemedicine or Remote Patient Monitoring) and biomarker guided diagnostics and therapy management across different health care sectors.
Product innovations like homecare platform and self-adaptive prioritising middleware supports this new health care model.

Since 2009 the industrial and scientific partners Deutsche Telekom GmbH, getemed AG, Brahms GmbH – Part of Thermo Fisher Scientific and Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering are developing in cooperation with the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin these product innovations.

These product innovations will be evaluated in a clinical trial with heart failure patients since 2013: TIM-HF II

Funding Volume Charité: ca. 9 Mio. EUR

EvaluateTelemedicine as part of BerlinHECOR

The health economic center BerlinHECOR (Centre for Health Economics Research) aims at a lasting, internationally perceived health economic research structure along with the development, organization and implementation of a broad performance test and analysis of the German health care system. The overall direction of the BerlinHECOR lies within the Department of Health Care Management, TU Berlin.

Based on an analysis of the TIM-HF study, the sub-project EvaluateTelemedicine will develop a health economic evaluation method for Remote Patient Management with regard to different telemedical systems and also with regard to different entities.

A particular challenge is the consideration of the different perspectives: (1) patients, (2) social / economic perspective (requirement for international comparisons), and (3) perspectives of a German health insurance. The project implementation is realized with the help of secondary data of the 69 health insurances, which participated in the TIM-HF I study.

Questions concern a) cost-effectiveness ratio (QALY-analysis), b) sensitivity analysis (costs of telemedical intervention) and c) cost appraisal of the spent resources and of the efficacy.

Duration: September 2012 until August 2013
Funding volume: ca. 64.000€

European Network fOr FALL Prevention, Intervention & Security (E-NO FALLS)

The Thematic Network is funded by the European Commission within the programme CIP-ICT-PSP.2012.3.4 during 2013 and 2016. The main goal of E-NO FALLS thematic network is to integrate and bring together knowledge, experiences and best practices acquired at European and international level in the area of fall prevention, intervention and safety.

The main goal of E-NO FALLS thematic network is to integrate and bring together knowledge, experiences and best practices acquired at European and international level in the area of fall prevention, intervention and safety, with the aim of coordinating ongoing activities and creating the necessary conditions and consensus on action plans, standards and specifications in view to ensure the widest future replication and co-deployment of innovative solutions (with special emphasis on ICT-based ones). In this way, the E-NO FALLS thematic network will be a forum for all stakeholders within the value chain (such as industry, users organizations, informal and formal care providers, public authorities, investors, housing and insurance companies and service providers across Europe) to share knowledge, expertise, resources, best practice experiences and to build consensus to highlight the remaining obstacles to be overcome and to eventually provide guidance for ICT-enabled solutions and their roll-out. Therefore, E-NO FALLS is envisaged to act as a HUB in the sense that it will become a single point concentrating conclusions, references and links to all what is being/has been done in all issues (research results, policy recommendations, market uptake...) related to fall prevention, detection, intervention and safety. E-NO FALLS portal will provide links to other networks, projects and initiatives addressing Falls which will make easier to all stakeholders to have a view and gather information about trends and future initiatives and the opportunity to be involved in all the activities of the network. Furthermore E-NO-FALLS will commit to the EIP AHA A2 action on fall prevention and will actively support the implementation of the action plan. In the same sense E-NO-FALLS will collaborate with the other thematic network, PROFOUND, to ensure synergies and mutual collaboration. The output expectation of the network is to maximize the social and economic potential of ICT-based solutions, while promoting and accelerating wider deployments for improving quality of life and sustainability of care for the ageing population.
