The aim of IKITIK is to support producing and using health information and communication by developing innovative, intelligent, state-of-the-art clinical information and language technology solutions. They are based on end-user needs and will be carefully tested using both statistical techniques and genuine end-user feedback. To assure their quality, international applicability, practical relevance and interoperability with existing electronic patient information systems, solutions are developed in interdisciplinary and international collaboration of care providers, clinical documentation and decision-making experts, as well as information and communication technology developers and providers. Outcomes contribute to clarity, understandability and accessibility of patient narratives. This has positive impacts on patient safety, care quality, and efficiency and profitability of health care services. Further, improved patient narratives emphasize customer orientation and individualized care.
