Healthcare: more time for better care

Intelligent automation solutions in the healthcare sector free staff from administrative tasks, giving them the time they need to look after the top priority: their patients. KUKA has been a pioneer in this industry for decades.

Focus on the patient

Optimal patient care is the central focus of the healthcare industry. This calls for one thing above all else: time.

Intelligent automation concepts developed specifically for healthcare requirements allow more efficient work processes. They can improve patient diagnostics and provide less-invasive surgical options, which improve patient satisfaction. Individual solutions relieve healthcare staff of redundant administrative tasks that have previously cost them a lot of time. This frees up valuable human resources that can be invested in the direct patient care.

At the same time, healthcare automation eases the physical burden on staff and reduces the risk of human error to a minimum – an essential factor for high-quality medical care.

Healthcare research

We believe in innovation – especially in the healthcare sector. As a pioneer in the concept of Industrie 4.0, we strive to achieve the best possible results through automation and data exchange for process efficiency and patient outcomes.

For this reason, we collaborate with renowned research institutions, such as the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology, RWTH Aachen University, the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington and the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. Jointly, we develop and test the best robot-based assistance systems for doctors and patients – such as 3D X-ray systems or medical robots for rehabilitation centers and home-based care.

We also partner with leading companies such as Siemens Healthcare. In collaboration with them, we develop intelligent healthcare automation solutions under real project conditions.
