The Hasso Plattner Institute for Digital Health at Mount Sinai

The Hasso Plattner Institute for Digital Health at Mount Sinai (HPIMS) is an exciting new research institute and collaboration between The Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) in Potsdam Germany and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Launched on March 29, 2019, and under the leadership of co-directors Joel Dudley, PhD, and Erwin Bottinger, PhD, this new Institute will combine innovative, complementary research resources and talents in health care, health sciences, data sciences, biomedical and digital engineering to empower citizens and their healthcare providers for better health outcomes with real-time predictive and preventive digital health solutions.

The Shared Vision of Mount Sinai and HPI

Together, we can empower patients and doctors alike and revolutionize the future of health care.

Mount Sinai’s Institute for Next Generation Healthcare

Mount Sinai’s Institute for Next Generation Healthcare (INGH) is a uniquely positioned research organization in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Mount Sinai Health System, founded and directed by Joel Dudley. INGH faculty, data scientists, clinicians, software developers, and students are committed to building a transformative model of healthcare through the unification of biomedical discovery, AI technology, digital health, and patient-driven platforms to make the future of medicine a reality today.

Mount Sinai’s Lab100

Mount Sinai’s Lab100 is a next generation health clinic. Lab100 at Mount Sinai is a research laboratory, leveraging data and technology to redesign the way health is measured and healthcare is delivered. Lab 100 is located at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and empowers patients to track their health over time by providing the most comprehensive health risk assessment and biometric screening currently available.

Mount Sinai’s BioMe BioBank Program

Mount Sinai’s health care cohort, BioMe BioBank Program is an electronic health record (EHR)-linked clinical care biobank, consisting of over 50,000 participants (MSHS patients) from diverse ancestries, characterized by a broad spectrum of (longitudinal) biomedical traits. Enrolled participants consent to be followed throughout their clinical care (past, present, and future) at Mount Sinai in real time, integrating their genomic information with their electronic health records for discovery research and clinical care implementation.

HPI’s Digital Health Center Potsdam

HPI’s Digital Health Center (DHC) Potsdam brings together individuals from health sciences, human sciences, data sciences, digital engineering, and society with a shared goal to improve health and wellbeing. Research at HPI DHC is organized in three divisions, including Connected Health (led by Bert Arnrich), Machine Learning in Human Health (led by Christoph Lippert), and Personalized Medicine (led by Erwin Böttinger). Additional research is focused on human-centered design for digital health (Jonathan Edelman), security and knowledge engineering (Christoph Meinel), and enterprise platforms and integration concepts (Matthias Uflacker/Hasso Plattner).

HPS Gesundheitscloud gGmbH

In close collaboration with the HPI DHC, the HPS Gesundheitscloud gGmbH (HBS GC)–a not-for-profit corporation under German law, funded by the Hasso Plattner Foundation–developed a platform for cloud-based, citizen-/patient-centered health data management, combining in-memory database technology and highly-performant, real-time analytics. The platform serves as a tool to carry out the overall charitable purpose of the HPS GC, namely the promotion of scientific research and public health. The HPS GC platform empowers participants/patients to collect, manage, and share their own medical information in digital form, and to participate and contribute to digital precision health research.
