Pandemic, digitization, care – healthcare revolution

Dear Sir or Madam,

The Corona pandemic has been a big stressor for healthcare in the last 1.5 years. It is not over yet, but we need to think about the next possible crisis today already. That's why it is even more important how we modernize out healthcare systems, how we prepare them for the future and how we make them more resilient.

These and other important questions from healthcare politics will be discussed at MEDICA 2021 in Düsseldorf from 15 to 18 November. You can experience the trade fair either live on site or in the livestreams from our forums and conferences. Get a preview of the program in our Trend Topic "Pandemic, digitization, care – healthcare revolution".

Unpacking and sorting of blood samples from general practitioners is a monotonous and time-consuming task. In the majority of hospitals, the process is done manually. The largest hospital in the North of Denmark, the Aalborg University Hospital, has now automated the process: Up to 3000 blood samples every day are unpacked and sorted by two lab robots.
