Positive completion of MDR certification for software as a medical device at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology - our strategic R&D partner

KITMed medical device (Class IIa) is used for decision support in telehealth services for patients with chronic diseases such as cardiac insufficiency, hypertension or diabetes mellitus. KITMed enables an automated comparison of the vital parameters transmitted by the patient (blood pressure, heart rate, body weight, blood sugar, etc.) in relation to the limit values specified by the physician. The KITMed report indicates undershoots and overruns of individual limit values and serves to support professional users in telemedicine centers.

With the successful certification, the AIT was able to complete the complex transition from the previous Medical Device Directive MDD 93/42EWG to the new Medical Device Regulation MDR 2017/745 within the legally defined transition period (May 26, 2024).

KABEG LKH Villach wins INTEGRI Award for "Mobile Patient Care" initiative

Congratulations to the team of LKH Villach for the INTEGRI AWARD for the initiative “Mobile Patient Care”.

The LKH Villach has combined several objectives in one organizational form in order to optimize the integrated care. On the one hand the care by a mobile palliative team was mentioned as an optimization as well as the ambulatory geriatric mobilization in the residential environment of the patient. In addition, HerzMobil Kärnten was listed as a further improvement. HerzMobil Kärnten provides telemedical care for cardiological patients.

HerzMobil goes ELGA - Report at the DMEA in Berlin

Connection of telemedical care programs of chronic diseases to the electronic health record (ELGA)

telbiomed and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology developed a standardized telemonitoring report with the support of HL7 Austria and ELGA GmbH as well as with other partners. For the first time, the report is used in the telehealth services HerzMobil Tyrol & Styria.

Internationally, this innovation is being presented by Univ.-Doz. DI Dr. Günter Schreier (AIT) in the context of the DMEA 2022 in Berlin …

Link to the event



With TBM Covid-19, TELBIOMED has developed an efficient monitoring system for the current Covid-19 pandemic. This was possible based on the long-time proven TBM Solutions and the modular structure of the system, which can be adapted relatively easily for certain disease patterns.

TBM Covid-19 supports health authorities in the care and management of people in quarantine. People in quarantine regularly record their body temperature and answer relevant questions regarding their symptoms. These data are available in a structured form for authorized caregivers.

Health professionals can quickly filter for persons with conspicuous symptoms. This supports an efficient and targeted use of resources in case of increasing numbers of quarantine cases.

Different user roles (coordinator, nurse, physician… ) and care groups (central, regional) support flexible management and ensure an efficent overview of the persons to be cared for.

AIT telehealth application wins the "Living Standards Awards 2018


On 17 January 2018, the internationally announced Living Standards Award was presented for the fourth time in Vienna. The prize honours exemplary participation in the standardisation and use of standards and is awarded to five favourites by an international jury of experts. Anton Dunzendorfer’s team from the Digital Health Information Systems Competence Unit of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology was honoured for its consistent implementation of standards in telehealth applications. This enables us to seamlessly and securely integrate measuring devices for blood sugar, blood pressure, body weight, oxygen saturation, etc. used by people with chronic illnesses. Peter Kastner (Thematic Coordinator at AIT) commented: “By taking standards into account, it is possible to integrate various measuring sensors from different manufacturers in a standardised way via a device management system and to transfer the measured values simply and securely into a health app on the smartphone directly after recording. The data is then synchronized with a central server to which the attending physician has access”.

The AIT is regarded as a driving force for innovation in the Austrian healthcare sector when it comes to implementing new telehealth applications for the care of people with chronic illnesses such as diabetes mellitus, cardiac insufficiency or high blood pressure. In particular, the active support of often elderly people in the long-term therapy process is in focus. The IT services developed for this purpose (“DiabMemory”, “HerzMobil”, “DiabCare”, etc.), together with specific therapy management programs, enable a simple and new type of dialogue between doctors, health and care professionals and patients. “In the Health Dialogue of the Insurance Institution for Railways and Mining (VAEB), in which data from a wide range of terminal devices is recorded, we are thus offering users support for self-control and behavioural change,” says Kurt Völkl, General Director of VAEB, a long-standing partner of AIT in the cooperation within the framework of telehealth services.

The AIT takes standards into account from the outset of innovative developments to ensure sustainable use of the technologies.  Here, AIT is relying on standardisation initiatives such as the Personal Connected Health Alliance, the NFC Forum and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. This ensures the seamless integration of measuring sensors from different manufacturers and interoperability across system boundaries and prepares for ELGA compatibility. The digital interaction between people and technology should contribute to a sustainable improvement in health care.
