In a recent study conducted by Bitkom on digitization and health, fascinating insights have emerged regarding the views of German citizens on the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the field of medicine. The findings reveal a resoundingly positive attitude towards AI and digitization in healthcare, reflecting a growing recognition of the potential benefits these technologies bring to the medical industry.
One of the most striking revelations from the study is that a remarkable 81% of German citizens consider AI to be a substantial opportunity for medicine. This statistic underscores the widespread acknowledgment of the positive impact AI can have on the healthcare sector. It reflects a sense of optimism about the potential of AI to enhance medical care, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.
The study also uncovers a clear demand for special support in the integration of AI in medicine. More than half of Germans, a substantial 57%, actively advocate for dedicated assistance in this regard. This demand highlights the growing interest in embracing innovative healthcare technologies and the willingness to invest in their development. It shows that the public recognizes the value of AI and its potential to improve healthcare outcomes.
Furthermore, an impressive 83% of Germans believe that the digitization of healthcare is fundamentally appropriate. This statistic demonstrates a broad consensus within the population about the importance of integrating digital technologies into the healthcare sector. The data underscores a general acceptance of digitization and a belief in its positive effects on the quality and accessibility of healthcare services.
There is also evidence of increasing enthusiasm for digitalisation of healthcare. Currently, 74% of Germans tend to view digitization as an opportunity, compared to 60% just a year ago. This shift reflects a growing confidence in the potential opportunities offered by digitization in the healthcare sector. It indicates that the public is becoming increasingly aware of the transformative potential of digital technologies in medicine.
These statistics underscore that the German population has recognized the immense potential of AI and digitization in medicine and fully supports the increased promotion and integration of these technologies in the healthcare industry.
Medudy confidently uses latest advancements in AI technology to help healthcare professionals around the world. Our solution lies in fully digitalised KOL avatars, that could be effectively used in modern medical education. We use tools that allow us to easily change the language spoken by the avatar, making medical education widespread and available to more people. That doesn't only save resources, that otherwise would be spend on expensive voice overs. This AI technology also has proven to be very time efficient, allowing us to produce new videos without taking up physician’s time to record the lessons. This way doctors can spend more time on their patients, and the saved budget can be invested in a better healthcare for everyone. We believe that AI can serve a great purpose, when it used to help people.

You know that saying about a picture being worth a thousand words? Well, turns out those words can be pretty biased – who knew, right? The representation of diversity in medical illustrations is a critically important topic with the potential to revolutionize the healthcare system, particularly by empowering Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
Being a teacher’s son provides you with a masterclass in cheating. Everyone knew about my mum’s golden rule: “I don’t mind students trying to cheat. They just need to accept the consequences if I manage to bust them.” And that she did a lot. At times it almost seemed like it had become a guilty pleasure of hers. Decades of practice had made her a detective someone like Columbo would have looked up to. At dinner she used to tell us about her latest “coup”. Euphoria in her eyes. Victory in her voice. “Passing on a piece of paper… I mean please! Did he think I was born in the Stone Age?” Sometimes I wondered if they even had a chance. Seeing other people get burnt on a daily basis, naturally I didn’t even consider playing with fire. I was an eager-to-please student learning everything by heart. …until Medical School. That’s when things changed.
