Optimization potential and innovation impulse for patient safety in medical technology generated from the daily clinical practice


Complex medical instruments require high skills on part of the developers, technicians and users. Each of these user groups has specific knowledge about the devices, which might be interesting for others. Under the KnowMore research project the handling and sharing of knowledge regarding the medical instruments are investigated and improved.

Project Target

The project aims to facilitate the exchange of knowledge in the field of medical technology in hospitals to enable innovations and improve the productivity of the medical devices used.

Project participants

  • University of Witten / Herdecke, Research Group: Management in Healthcare, Prof. Dr. Sabine Bohnet-Joschko
  • University of Kassel, Department of Information Systems, Prof. Dr. Jan Marco Leimeister
