Highlights of build.well.being 2023: Data-Driven Healthcare
Data-Driven Healthcare The 7th annual build.well.being is an open access networking event for doers in Digital Healthcare. In a compact afternoon session, health professionals meet developers, applied science interweaves with innovative ideas from students, companies get together with startups and experts.
The talks feature entrepreneurs, visionaries and next-generation innovators over topics such as patient reported outcomes, digitalization of patient interactions, data-driven health workforce management and AI based radiology imaging workflows. The keynote will be held by Tanja Stamm, Professor for Outcomes Research at Medical University of Vienna, and Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O) lead & Tamás Petrovics, CEO of Xund.ai.
Build.well.being 2023 is a free-of-charge event realized by Datanauts.at, St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences and more partners. Limited seats available. Register now!

Tanja Stamm (AT), Professor for Outcomes Research at Medical University of Vienna and Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O) Lead
Launched in 2020, the Health Outcomes Observatory (H2O) project will, for the first time across Europe, bring together outcomes reported by patients (PROs) with the corresponding clinical outcomes collected on a large scale in (initially) four countries and four disease areas. H2O aims to establish a culture of continuous measurement of outcomes across the health care ecosystem, incorporating these measures into the process of routine care and allowing for the ongoing assessment of medicines and other technologies through their lifecycle.

The need for digital, data-driven healthcare has never been more evident. Problems with data management and sharing as well as the lack of reliable long-term data slow down medical treatments. How can digital solutions make the patient journey more effective from start to finish, saving resources while providing patients with reliable decision support?
13:55 – 14:15 Digital Health Students Pitches – Part I (5 min each)
+Team: Christine Naschenweng, Lisa Pitzl, Michael Plank, Lucas Wohlmuth, St Pölten UAS
An application for people with severe hearing impairments (SHI) to learn, repeat and deepen their knowledge about basic life support in an adapted way catered to their needs and additionally to get the possibility to review the content in a playful way. To support the learning experience videos with subtitles and sign language interpreters as well as text information will be implemented.
- Voice Assisted Patients
Julia Böck, Tobias Eder
+Team: Theresa Hillebrand, Patrick Kramml, Marco Sonnberger, St Pölten UAS
It is important to get a fast overview of your patients’ health data. In this session, you will hear about a new way of documenting and displaying data, starting with the patient themselves with a voice assistant and continuing for the health professional with a QR-Code. You need faster access to your patients’ health data and you are curious how voice assistants and QR-Codes might play a role in this? Then this session is for you!
- MedBuddy – Breaking Language Barriers In Healthcare
Julie Regondique, Markus Ochsenhofer
+Team: Silvia Angjeliu, Nadine Heckenast, Joanna Malec, St Pölten UAS
MedBuddy is a software that assists both healthcare professionals and patients when they don’t share the same language. It is a tool that offers translated common phrases used in radiology settings to improve patients’ understanding and adherence to examination protocol. MedBuddy goes beyond simple translation: a virtual human explains, informs and instructs audibly, visually and in text. The information part is complemented with a digital questionnaire suited for the required examination.

14:45 – 15:05 Accelerating Radiology Imaging Workflows With Relevant Clinical Context on AWS
Christoph Russ (CH), Technical Program Manager – Healthcare, Amazon Web Services EMEA Sarl
AWS empowers radiologists, health systems, and research teams increase the pace of innovation, unlock the potential of imaging data, develop more personalized approaches to care delivery, and improve cost and operational efficiency. Moving medical imaging data to the cloud allows clinicians to employ machine learning (ML) to support anomaly detection that speeds diagnosis and improves patient outcomes.

Most in-hospital falls occur while patients are leaving their beds. What if there was an efficient way to prevent falls and support medical staff at the same time? That’s why we developed ‘iStopFalls’: If a patient is at risk of falling, a sensor detects their attempt to get up and activates a smart speaker, engaging the patient in conversation and saving precious time until a nurse arrives to provide assistance. Join us for an exciting presentation on iStopFalls, where we’ll showcase the technology and explain how it can revolutionize hospital fall prevention, enhance patient safety, and support medical staff.
- IdentifAI – Kidney Stone, Cyst and Tumor Detection on CT images
Wimmer Vanessa, Fiedler Fabian
Have you ever had a long wait to get your diagnosis? Have you experienced the problem of late detection of a disease?
IdentifAI, an AI model that can detect stones, cysts, and tumors in the kidneys of a patient on CT scans, helps mitigate these issues.
The goal of this project is to shorten the time it takes to identify stones, cysts, and tumors in the patient’s kidneys. The process can also be run autonomously on any CT scan, even if the doctor is looking for something different. This way, illnesses can be detected early and treated before they become noticeable problems.
To provide unrestricted access to this technology, the AI model is optimized to run efficiently on the average hospital computer.
We believe this technology has great potential for the future of the medical sector and can drastically improve the quality.
