HiDiH

Hub for Innovations in Digital Health

 

The Hub for Innovations in Digital Health (HiDiH) brings together two independent sites of excellent research and development in Berlin and in Heidelberg.  HiDiH’s major branch in Berlin is the Center for Digital Health at the Charité and the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH). In 2018, Roland Eils moved here from the German Cancer Research Center and the University of Heidelberg to found this new center in Germany’s capital. HiDiH’s smaller branch in Heidelberg is the Health Data Science Unit at Heidelberg University hospital. At both sites, HiDiH boosts innovative developments and applications in the life sciences and clinical care. HiDiH is engaged in both national and international outstanding initiatives such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium, the Human Cell Atlas and Germany’s national Medical Informatics Initiative. Despite its relatively recent inception, HiDiH has thus already evolved into one of Germany’s leading hubs in Digital Health.
