The digitalization of the healthcare system is one of the central challenges of our time. Thereby, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), among other things, offer enormous opportunities for improving general health. Against this background, ELNET-Germany founded the German Israeli Health Forum for Artificial Intelligence. Because Germany and Israel can learn a lot from each other in the field of eHealth and shape the future together.

The German Israeli Health Forum for Artificial Intelligence enables the exchange of knowledge and experience between Germany and Israel in the field of digital health. It places a special focus on digital health applications that use artificial intelligence and machine learning. The forum brings together experts from science, medicine, industry, research, and politics who are committed to modern, innovative, and patient-oriented medical care.

Through workshops, dialogue formats, and annual conferences as well as regular publications, dealing with the three core areas of technology and security, regulation, and communication and trust, GIHF-AI develops policy recommendations for legislators.
