Immune diseases have a variety of different clinical manifestations and as systemic diseases often affect several organ systems at the same time. A good two-thirds of all immune-mediated diseases can be assigned to the fields of rheumatology, dermatology or gastroenterology, with many immune diseases having symptoms from all three disciplines occurring simultaneously. A multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach is therefore essential for the optimal care of patients with immune diseases, as well as for optimal scientific research into specific disease-determining characteristics.
This is difficult to implement in clinical routine, as patient care is assigned to different specialist departments. In the concept of the 4D clinic, the required interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach is now to be implemented in a unique manner.
By building a transdisciplinary team that combines scientific and medical experts from various disciplines (rheumatology, dermatology and gastroenterology), interdisciplinary patient care is ensured and combined with scientific excellence. This enables integrated scientific approaches to better describe the indications, leading to an optimization of patient care, with permanent focus on the patient.
- Access to patient groups from the indication fields of immune diseases in rheumatology, dermatology, gastroenterology
- Standardized clinical characterization of the patient population
- Detection of the disease phenotype (clinical parameters, serological biomarkers, imaging)
- Direct interface to the 4D (drugs, devices, data, diagnostics)
- Research close to the patient population
- Trans-sectional team for the supply and research of the examined fields of indication
