IT in Intensive Medical Care and Anaesthetics

(Academy) Seminar

April 11, 2019

09:30 - 13:15

_Room Lovelace, Hall 2.2

Note: the seminar will be held in German.

IT systems are being used increasingly in intensive care units, intermediate care, stroke units, in emergency outpatient departments, in anaesthetics and in the recovery room, where patients are being continuously monitored, and where large volumes of data have to be processed. The IT systems in question (known as PDMS and AIMS), which are used to support medical and organisational processes, make information about the treatment process available quickly and clearly to all those involved, as well as improving patient safety. By means of scoring, therapeutic planning and standards, the use of such systems improves the quality of patient care and reduces mortality in intensive care units. The introduction and operation of PDMS and AIMS is a project that is not confined to any specific professional group or department and involves physicians, nursing staff, the IT department, medical technology, financial controlling and accounting personnel. This makes far-reaching integration in the HIS and/or CAS and other IT systems such as medication an essential factor. The speakers from various clinics will describe the process, introducing PDMS/AIMS and showing how they have already achieved integration in their own HIS / CAS etc., the challenges that have had to be overcome, and what functions still need to be implemented.
