Inspiration

The current exceptional situation is a challenge for the entire European health care system. Europe and the world have been met entirely unprepared by the fight against the corona pandemic. Luckily, there are more and more people with a medical education background that are willing to help voluntarily and thereby correspond to the needs of hospitals and medical institutions that are looking for personnel and intensive care beds with medical ventilators. In order to provide a quick match between hospitals and personnel and to offer a transparent overview of available intensive care beds that actualizes in real-time, a centralized and automatic registration and administration post is needed.

What does the „Management System for Medical Resources“?

Volunteers can register and provide the following data: availability age location experience specialization mobility current occupation others

Hospitals can provide information about their personell needs and bed capacities within the system and share the information transparently. Hospitals can search for personnel within a defined location and request volunteers through the system. The requested volunteer will be contacted automatically via e-mail and contact details will be exchanged. Other hospitals can review, if their own needs can be filled by external personnel or beds. Availability of beds can be reviewed locally, nationally and even within the entire EU. The entire system can surely be translated in every language that is required. International use can thereby be applied.

How is the „Management System for Medical Resources” built technically?

Language: C#

Database: Maria-DB

Additionally prepared for: MySQL MSSQL Oracle

Frontend: Bootstrap Javascript CSS HTML XML

Interface - Export/Import: CSV Excel

Challenges during the development

Filtering of dependencies of data streams in health care as well as the automatic presentation. We also had to research the current working processes in hospitals and display the processes realistically in our system.
Display of a database that is globally available and can be accessed locally. The activation of the resource can be accessed automatically by hospitals. Visualization of all available beds in European hospitals.
Automatic data processing, preferably without human interference.

What we are proud of

We are especially proud of the following features: Flexible and random scalability of the system. Every extension of the attibutes is possible effortlessly. Visibility of the information can be limited according to the user preferences.

What did we learn?

Our health care system is in general highly vulnerable. The system is based on isolated applications without a standardised data format. The consequence is that there is no reliable data acquisition in real-time in case of emergency of crisis. In order to save lives even apart of an emergency, the application of a standard solution is inevitable.

What's next for Krankenhäuser 4.0: Optimale Verteilung der Ressourcen

We have noticed that there are NO comprehensive, standardised and automatic formats for data transfer in healthcare as there are e. g. in the car making industry. Every country in Europe works with several isolated solutions.
With the „Management System for Medical Resources” we aim to solve the basic problem. Our system is able to import all data formats and can provide all data formats through an interface. That is why data can be switched automatically in the background. It is not necessary for the hospitals to change its processes. Our goal is to improve the system technically and to deploy it in the entire EU. Possible sales channels could be hospitals, clinics or health insurance companies.
