Artificial intelligence is no longer a dream of the future in medicine. Many studies and initial application examples show that it sometimes achieves better results than human physicians. At Jena University Hospital, the work with AI is already lived practice. It is the first institution in the world to use algorithms in radiological routine to reconstruct CT images.

Commodities: needle-free flu vaccine patch

Research & Technology, Commodities and Consumer Goods

A new needle-free flu vaccine patch revved up the immune system much like a traditional flu shot without any negative side effects, according to a study. Though the research is in the early stages, it's an important step toward a technology that could replace needle-based vaccination methods that require administration by health care workers and biohazard waste removal.

Hundreds of start-up companies await you at MEDICA 2019. And for good reason: Many success stories start at MEDICA, because not only the international players and makers of the healthcare industry are represented, but also investors from healthcare accelerator programs, family offices and well-known venture capital funds.

In the MEDICA START-UP PARK in hall 13, you will find innovative products of 36 start-ups from the fields of diagnostics, IoMT, smart solutions, chronic disease treatment, AI, VR, mHealth and wearable solutions.

In the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM (MCHF) in hall 13, around 100 start-ups will present their products and ideas in the sessions and MEDICA DISRUPT Start-up Pitches. In the afternoon of 19. Nov. 2019, healthcare accelerator programs such as by Merck, Bayer G4A and Roche will introduce themselves to the start-ups via the Reverse Pitch Session.

Start-ups can apply for the leading international competitions of the 8th MEDICA App COMPETITION and the 11th HEALTHCARE INNOVATION WORLD CUP (Deadline for submission on 18 September midnight). The finalists will be on the MCHF stage on 18 and 19 November and can win valuable business contacts, international recognition and cash prizes.

Diagnostics start-ups from the biotech sector who are looking for investors can also find potential investors at the DxPx conference on 18 November in the nearby Maritim Hotel.
