Smart Health: SZE’s researchers give an insight into latest developments

The rehabilitation of patients, the efficiency of data transfer for patient care, and the work of doctors and healthcare workers are supported by the developments on which researchers from Semmelweis University, development engineers from Széchenyi István University and doctors from the Petz Aladár University Teaching Hospital in Győr are working together in the Thematic Area of Excellence Programme (TKP), launched by the National Research, Development and Innovation Fund. The participants held a scientific/technical seminar, including a presentation, on the results of their state-of-the-art medical research, which have also been recognised at the international level.

What are the trends in future healthcare? How can digitalisation and engineering precision be channelled into the daily lives of patients and medical professionals? Two questions to which the researchers and physicians participating in the professional-scientific presentation organised by Széchenyi István University provided tangible answers.

Experts from seven thematic areas presented their achievements over the past year, most of which have already established a market potential at this stage of development.

The innovative developments can support both medical practitioners and patients

"From increasing the speed and efficiency of data transfer and thus the diagnostic process, to complex and high-level support for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, to facilitating the work and training of healthcare professionals, the researchers involved in the TKP are working on areas that will directly help patients in the region and around the world to be cured," said Project Manager Dr Hajnalka Hargitai,  Head of Department and Professor at Széchenyi István University, describing gaps and essential developments.

Dr Balázs Villányi, Medical Director of the Petz Aladár University Teaching Hospital, Head of the University Health Innovation Competence Centre and professional lead of the TKP programme stressed that their institution is largely satisfied with results achieved so far, which already represent a step forward.

"We have found a common language and a platform with engineers from the University of Győr. It's inspiring to see that we can rely on such a high level of scientific support in the process of development and negotiation," emphasized Dr Villányi.

Judit Hermann, programme manager of the Health Technology Campus, which SZE intends to implement as a priority University development programme on the site of Győr’s former Zrínyi utca Hospital, added that this provides a solid foundation and content for the future operation of the new research, development and service facility.

The Thematic Excellence Programme, which promotes excellence in institutions, will provide support for the R&D and innovation activities of knowledge centres and research centres until the end of 2025.
