The healthcare industry in Hannover is booming. It employs approximately 76,000 people – roughly 15% of the social-security-contributing workforce, making healthcare the largest industry. Hannover has the largest offering of public hospitals, ranging up to super maximum care. It is a pioneer in cutting-edge, patient-focused research. The level of digitisation in healthcare is increasing simultaneously. The reasons for this include an aim to improve quality and commercial success.

We have identified this potential, which is why we are bringing together the big players in the local healthcare industry with the Digital Health City Hannover (DHCH) network. The initiative provides a high level of connectivity, supports existing active networks and builds links between them. It develops new instruments, is familiar with the influential stakeholders and brings them together. We guide and support innovative start-ups, existing companies and structural projects in the field of digital health.


Hannover’s digital health community sets standards by giving intensive support to integrative thinking, responsible conduct and innovative entrepreneurialism among the players in the healthcare industry.

Medical Practice Solutions – the Age of Digital Dental Clinics

Anyone who has an idea – be it in relation to trending innovation themes like femtech, digital health or innovative healthcare business models – can find support with this programme. It offers a diverse range of potential suggestions and content.

This incubator helps start-ups and company founders to enhance health services and ideas using agile methods in order to achieve lasting effectiveness for solutions in the healthcare industry. In conjunction with our network, the FHI provides know-how, professional mentoring and industry contacts. It also helps its target audiences to find funding.


Application-oriented product development for medical care

This is a growing centre for test environments for application-focused product development and co-innovation in the healthcare sector. Whether digital or analogue, the topics range from nursing to the provision of healthcare. The space creates an innovation culture within Hannover’s healthcare field, and that in turn creates spillover effects. An innovative environment like this has positive effects on the working environments for healthcare employees, which also provides a problem-solving approach for the current shortage of skilled workers in this area.

The goal is to establish an offering for businesses and research organisations so that they can develop new products that are aligned with actual needs in close collaboration with medical and nursing workers. There is a focus on integration with test environments. Using them, everyday experience can be tracked and studied directly.

Our goals

The active digital health community in Hannover develops innovative technologies, products, solutions and business models for future-oriented patient healthcare.

Hannover has an active digital health ecosystem as fertile ground for all health stakeholders to improve health care and be economically successful.

Hannover is seen internationally as a trailblazing location for digital health. Our network acts as a point of contact and offers a platform for interested people worldwide.
