Traditionally, medical informatics holds a recognized position in the field of systematic management of data, information and knowledge to support medical care and biomedical research.
A consistent principle of the research projects of the Institute of Medical Informatics is to be oriented towards application questions and to further develop methods and tools related to the problems identified there. This is accompanied by the fact that projects are generally carried out in an interdisciplinary manner and with medical partners, for example:
- Clinics and institutes of Heidelberg University Hospital and the Medical Faculty of Heidelberg University.
- Research institutions within and outside the Ruprecht-Karls-University of Heidelberg
