Siemens unveils its global Digital Ecosystem platform at HIMSS

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
Siemens Healthineers launched its Digital Ecosystem global platform at the HIMSS Conference & Exhibition this week. On one platform, users have access to data, applications and services from health care providers and manufacturers around the world.

"We believe that digitalization and the associated networking of health care providers is essential for the transformation to value-based health care. Big data needs to become smart data,” Dr. Arthur Kaindl, head of digital health services at Siemens, said in a statement.

As a Master Distributor for major brands Barco, Philips, and Sony, we offer custom imaging solutions. With our renowned OEM Solutions and Service/Repair Center, Ampronix is a one-stop shop for HD Medical LCD Displays--Printers--Recorders--4K Cameras

Through the platform, experts can link to and communicate with peers worldwide to share knowledge. Health care providers have access to Siemens’ expertise in almost all clinical areas including health care data security.

Users also have access to aggregated data that can be used for a variety of different applications. For example, the predictive analysis tools can spot trends that can help improve diagnoses and guide therapy decisions.

Digital Ecosystem is designed with an Application Programming Interface, so application developers, device manufacturers and data providers can contribute to the platform. The companies can develop, market and offer their applications and technologies on the platform.

Arterys, Dell EMC,, Stroll Health, SyntheticMR, 3D Slicer, TMC, USARAD and Viewics have already agreed to become partners. The platform remains open for other companies that want to partner.

The platform is based on the cloud-based network called teamplay that’s already in use at hundreds of customer sites. It’s also built on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, which currently contains several million data records.

With data security being a major concern, the cloud-based network has different privacy levels to meet compliance in local regulations. teamplay has been awarded with the European Privacy Seal and the German “Seal of Privacy for IT products.”

Siemens is showcasing a prototype of Digital Ecosystem at HIMSS with single-sign-on access to its partners’ applications and services. It’s expected to be commercially available in the fall of 2017.
