Jochen Klucken is a full professor at the University of Luxembourg (UL/LCSB) and holds the FNR Pearl Chair in Digital Medicine, also affiliated with the with the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Central Hospital of Luxembourg (CHL). This new field of Digital Medicine tries to understand how patient-centered technology can be used in everyday medical practice, and which evidence assessment is needed to not only understand the medical benefits of healthcare technologies, but also their patient- and social acceptance and economical efficacy. Here, the major goal lies in clinical studies for healthcare technologies providing evidence for their medical, social, ethical and legal benefit as well as economic efficiency ultimately generating a concept of “clinical validation of healthcare technologies and services”.
