Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation

The catalyst for sustainable and safe patient care!

Digitalization has revolutionized the way we work, communicate and obtain information in recent years. In the healthcare sector, digital transformation offers enormous opportunities to improve the quality of medical care and optimize processes. However, the introduction of IT systems alone is not enough to take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitalization. Digital transformation requires a holistic view of processes and working methods as well as a change in mindset. The aim is to integrate digital technologies into workflows in order to ensure more effective, safer and patient-centered care. The focus should be on people, as digital transformation can only be successfully implemented by involving employees and patients. Our consulting services are tailored to the needs of hospitals and healthcare facilities. We help you to take a holistic approach to digitalization and make the most of the opportunities it offers.

As part of the digital transformation on the path to becoming a smart hospital, we support you in the following areas in particular:

  • Vision and digital target picture 
  • Use of technology to support optimal processes 
  • Data strategy 
  • System and provider selection 
  • Implementation strategy 
  • Implementation support for IT projects 
  • Digital commissioning

Have you heard of the Digital Healthcare Platform OWL?

Medical data accessible - anytime and anywhere - thanks to the digital archive

The Digital Healthcare Platform OWL started in 2018 as a pioneering project with an impressive volume of funding. The goal: to network the five urgent care hospitals in the Paderborn area and the doctors in private practice from the professional association Praxisnetz Paderborn to digitalize and more closely integrate the healthcare sector. In 2023, this successful funding project, in which UNITY was the overall project manager, was successfully completed - and the operating company Digital Healthcare Platform OWL GmbH was then founded by the project partners. With the UNITY Innovation Alliance as a project partner, we can work together to drive forward the consistent implementation of our vision of the digital healthcare revolution - digital, connected, secure!
