Institute for Medical Informatics

As the first Swiss institute for medical informatics, we act as a bridge-builder at the interface between medicine and computer science for user-friendly IT applications for medicine and people.

One particular unique feature of this institute is the «Living Lab» – a platform for research and education – illustrating the essential components of the healthcare system: a hospital, doctor's surgery, physiotherapy, pharmacy which can communicate by means of e-health platforms and telemedicine services, healthcare management and a two-room apartment of the family Brönnimann, who are living virtually in our «Living Lab».
