Healthcare Challenges

Development of Predictive Models for Patient Pathways


Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Healthcare


CHARITÉ – University Hospital (CUH) Berlin

Background Information:

At CUH, the connection between hospital operations and environmental health is well understood. Hospitals are significant contributors to air pollution due to their reliance on fossil fuels, smoking areas, and the use of various chemical products. As the demand for healthcare services grows, so does the environmental footprint of these institutions.

Challenge Description:

CUH is focusing on reducing emissions by improving how chemical products, disinfectants, and medical devices are used within their facilities. The challenge is to transition from one-time use items to reusable or recyclable alternatives, thereby decreasing the overall environmental impact.

What They Are Looking For:

CUH seeks innovative solutions that replace single-use applications with sustainable methods that can be implemented within the hospital’s operations.
