Smart Medical Technology for Healthcare
The SMITH project started in 2018 with the goal to make medical data generated in everyday clinical practice available to medical research in a standardized form. Patients benefit from reliable research results, more precise diagnoses and better treatments. In order to link data from care and research, the participating university hospitals have established sustainable Data Integration Centres. The UME is one of these university hospitals. SMITH is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the Medical Informatics Initiative.
