Hospitals of the future live

The “Hospitals of the future live” project focuses on digital reforms in the healthcare sector. Bringing together existing technologies on one xHealth platform increases the quality of care and patient safety.

eHealth (network), pHealth (personalised medical data), mHealth (mobile health) and aHealth (automation) are combined onto one xHealth platform (crossHealth), which creates synergy and thereby improves the quality and efficiency of healthcare.

The “Hospitals of the future live” project follows the application recommendations of the preceding “Hospitals of the future

” study, taking into consideration international standards and the legal specifications for eHealth. The use of new technologies in existing and future work processes eliminates errors in patient care and optimises the supply chain.

Taking the example of a fictional patient called Ms Brönnimann and her symptoms, an integrated, cross-departmental course of care is drawn up and put into place. The objective of the project is to guarantee top-quality care and improve patient safety continuously.

To make the exchange of information between Ms Brönnimann and the medical personnel even more efficient, the quality of care and patient safety are analysed in all sub-projects in addition to the information and communication technology used. The following aspects are taken into account:

  • integration of allocators and patient transfers within the hospital
  • the treatment chain with upstream and downstream processes, plus rehabilitation and home care
  • age-appropriate assistance systems in the domestic setting
  • the identification of potential benefits for planning, scheduling and prognoses
  • the digitally supported medication process
  • the digitally supported management of implants
  • the development of prototypical eHealth services in the laboratory environment as a basis for product development for participating industry partners
  • the handling of hired equipment and surgery planning
  • the application of international standards and legal provisions (e.g. GS1, IHE, HL7, EPDG)

Throughout the simulated treatment pathway in the laboratory, further sub-projects should be identified which can be carried out with the participating hospitals and industries independently of the main project and in a timely manner.
