About us

The establishment of the Smart Health Tech. Center (SHTC) at the Erasmus MC is a crucial step in the process of becoming a technical academic medical center. SHTC aims at the integration, development, testing and validation of technologies for health, such as advanced AI-based technologies (e.g. IoT, MedIoT, Active and Assisted Living Technologies), robotics technologies, sensor and monitoring technologies. We assist in providing physical and digital access to resources to Start-ups, SMEs, knowledge institutions enabling them to test, validate or experiment their products and services in clinical- and hospital- or patient-home settings. We offer support to research partners in finding the right setting and experts, clinical expertise, expertise in AI and robotics, data and training for health care in the Erasmus MC. We furthermore assist staff to spearhead innovations and create an entrepreneurial and solution oriented creative culture within the Erasmus MC. Through these services we facilitate the rapid development, testing and implementation of new co-created ideas to reimagine health care and care delivery.
