Institute of Medical Informatics of the
Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Welcome to the pages of the Institute of Medical Informatics at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
Our vision is to create a Charité in which our colleagues in clinical practice, research, and teaching are supported in their work by digital health and data-driven applications. Our performance shall contribute beyond the Charité to promote sustainable digitization in healthcare that is oriented towards the interests of patients.
We see ourselves as an interface between patient care and applied informatics. This is expressed in the embedding of our institute at Charité: As the first chair at Charité, Felix Balzer's professorship Medical Data Science is located both in the faculty and in the IT division of Charité. We combine two sciences - informatics and medicine - as well as the academic and operational field of activity.
Every day we work to noticeably advance the digitization of patient care and research at Charité. We use the special position of our institution in the Charité
- to create new knowledge from routine clinical data,
- to use the insights gained to develop applications that improve clinical care,
- and to accompany digital innovations in the best possible way on their way to routine application in everyday care.
Since January 2021, the Institute for Medical Informatics has been headed by Prof. Dr. med. Dr. rer. nat. Felix Balzer.
