Klinikum Mannheim Dienstleistungsgesellschaft mbH
Klinikum Mannheim Dienstleistungsgesellschaft mbH (KMD) is the internal logistics service provider of the Klinikum Mannheim, which is home to more than 30 specialist clinics and institutes, with approximately 76,000 inpatients and day-patients and 210,000 outpatients annually. The clinics and institutes cover almost the entire spectrum of medical subjects. Thus, the KMD offers an interesting platform to investigate and compare potential fields of application of service robotics in different clinics and disciplines. As a major hospital, a conveyor system for the transport of goods to the wards is already being used at the Klinikum Mannheim, but there is no further automatic distribution within the wards. Due to the direct connection to the university medicine, there is a great interest in innovative approaches.
