Gesundheitswirtschaft Hamburg celebrating tenth anniversary

GWHH boosts networking between partners

The Gesundheitswirtschaft Hamburg GmbH (GWHH) is celebrating its* tenth anniversary* this year. “On December 12, we will look back on ten successful years – and naturally to the future,” said Jan Quast and Birgit Schweeberg, Managing Directors. The course towards a successful future was set in January, when GWHH moved into its new premises in the south of Hamburg. “Now we have more space, for instance, for the Digital Health Hub Hamburg where we advise start-ups focusing on health about grants and partnerships,” Quast stressed.

Huge potential for digitisation in health sector

The Digital Health Hub Hamburg (DHHH), GWHH’s cluster brand, is promoting digitalisation and using digital innovations to improve the health care sector. “Digitalisation in the healthcare industry holds huge potential for improving existing processes or designing new ones. All our topics and projects reflect this,” said Schweeberg. The DHHH supports the exchange between established companies and start-ups and brings together the right partners to develop new ideas or concrete projects.

Cross Innovation Hub with the Hamburg Kreativgesellschaft

“And we’re organizing cross cluster workshops to link the innovative potential of the healthcare industry with other industries. After a successful kick-off with the Digital Hub Logistics on ‘Logistics meets Health’, we invite you to an exchange with the Hamburg Kreativgesellschaft’s Cross Innovation Hub on August 21.

GWHH’s co-operation with the Health Innovation Port (HIP), of which it has been a partner since 2018, is also going well. They host joint events focusing on the potential of digital solutions in the healthcare industry e.g. “Shaping the digitalisation of the healthcare system in Hamburg”. GWHH was also an official partner of the Health Innovation Hub’s Start-up Roadshow when the draft of the Digital Supply Act (DVG) was presented in July. The HIH bundles the dialogue between all the relevant actors in the health service and brings them together.

AGQua – healthy and happy in old age

The Active and Healthy Quarters Uhlenhorst and Rübenkamp project focuses on health and happiness in old age and the conditions in which people can live independently in their own home for as long as possible. Partners in science, the housing industry and nursing are developing and testing a local, social supply system in Uhlenhorst and Rübenkamp using information and electrical companies. Health advice for older residents is an important part of the project, Schweeberg noted. “In May and June, interested people obtained information at two health fairs organised by the project and the new My neighbours app has been available since June and encourages neighbours to help each other.”

Gesundheitswirtschaft Hamburg GmbH

GWHH is the cluster agency of the Hamburg health industry, which was founded in 2009 by the Hamburg Health and Consumer Protection Authority and the Chamber of Commerce. Supported by the association of the same name, GWHH networks all players to advance the health industry in Hamburg. These include large hospitals or doctors’ practices as well as private or statutory health insurance funds, health groups and start-ups, and representatives of industry and science.
