Medizin 4.0 describes a new era with regard to the medical sector, which is strongly influenced by digitalisation and in which the increasing linking of medical care with modern information and communication technologies is in the foreground. The change is particularly noticeable in the networking of the various clinics, new technologies in care and the new dimensions with regard to existing data material. From an operational point of view, the dimensions of Medicine 4.0 become apparent in robots that help patients when neither relatives nor nursing staff are available, or in the examination of genes, which can enable optimised therapy. In addition, mechanical assistants help in difficult operations where precise hand movements are required. Digital communication systems also enable physicians to exchange information across national and local borders and, in the case of difficult decisions, to seek the advice of colleagues currently at a distance, which is often crucial in medical challenges. Data collections also help to share existing knowledge, to develop it further together and thus to discover new methods of treatment. In summary, within the framework of Medicine 4.0, doctors are now able to exchange information and network their knowledge, regardless of where they are, in order to advance research and the development of new methods. In addition, the new technology helps to specify and adopt work steps and also to implement new examination methods. In this way, both the flexibility of the processes and the adaptation of the processes to the respective patient can be increased.
