  • My office is at the Department of Applied Information Processing  where I am working as scientific assistant since 1992. My main research interests are in intelligent information systems (as e.g. needed in medical context) and in data mining.

    In 1997 I finished my Ph.D. thesis building a diabetes information system now being used in about 500 hospitals and at GPs in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. One main benefit of the system is a semi-annual benchmarking for each clinic comparing treatment outcome of patients with diabetes Typ 1. In 1999 we were able to compare data of 10,000 patients treated at 91 diabetes units.
    About 50% of all paediatric diabetes patients in Germany are documented with the help of our information system. On federal state level up to 90% of the estimated number of patients up to the age of 19 are found in the database.
