What is the
Digital Urban Center for Aging and Health?

The Digital Urban Center for Aging and Health (DUCAH) stands for a new kind of cutting between digitalization, urbanization, and health. DUCAH is a people-centered research center in the care, health, and social economy, as well as a learning hub in healthcare.

DUCAH was created through an initiative of the Internet and Society Foundation. DUCAH is a registered cooperative. It conducts research primarily in neighborhoods, in the city and in rural areas in care quarters and in hospitals - at the place where the action is, in the: "Better-Living-Quarters".
... that this can be achieved with digital and social innovations - between research disciplines, industries, government, and betweeen business and civil society.
... that our lives, our health, and our aging in a digital society will become more individual, more data-based, more networked, more preventive, more dignified, and at the same time more affordable.
... that this is made possible by smart healthcare systems that put people first and develop healthy neighborhoods.
Let's Imagine...
