Excellence in e-Health Research & Development

The Healthy Living Competence Team (HeLiCT) is a research group at the Chair of Wirtschaftsinformatik, esp. Systems Development (Prof. Dr. Esswein). Our team includes researches of computer sciene, information systems, business management, and medical informatics who work together on issues from practice and research.

Our philosophy

Our main focus is the design and optimization of clinical processes, whereby economical optimization measures and information technology support are seen as a unit. Our aim is to improve the performance and resource efficiency through systematic design, project monitoring and implementation. As part of our research and development work, the design of practical solutions that seamlessly integrate into the functional processes are paramount.
