The overall objective of the project comprises the development of integrated medical technology that can be used along the process chain, not only in the hospital (e.g. shock room, operating room, intensive care unit), but also preclinically on the move, e.g. at the scene of an emergency or in an ambulance. Networked medical technology and IT systems are integrated into a common communication infrastructure across heterogeneous communication technologies and make their functionalities available via a common infrastructure. New communication technologies such as the 5th generation of mobile communications (5G) and their further development in public and private networks (in hospitals or at the point of use) can represent a key building block for the end-to-end networking of medical technology. The digital networking of the mobile point of care with medical technology diagnostic and therapy systems results in a significant improvement in the mobile treatment scenario and is desirable in terms of flexible and individualized treatment optimization. Medical resources, technologies and information from the hospital can be accessed at the point of treatment and information can also be transmitted to the hospital.
This not only enables a more precise diagnostic assessment of the patient-specific situation, but also far greater precision in the early initial diagnosis on site. The bilateral availability of clinical information at the accident site and preclinical data in the trauma room means that patient treatment can be improved and made more efficient. In addition, assessments of the further course of treatment can be coordinated before the patient arrives and continued seamlessly in the hospital. The use of new communication technologies integrates the entire emergency care process from the scene to hospital care and leads to increased mobility in patient treatment with improved resource utilization and lower resource requirements.
