Everyone is talking about the electronic patient file, telemedicine and health apps. However, electronic applications are either hardly used in outpatient and stationary nursing care or employed as standalone solutions only. In non-clinical care in particular, house emergency call systems aside, scarcely any modern technology is used to assist persons in need of care and to reduce the burden on nursing staff. In this fast-growing market especially, intelligent communications could potentially improve care processes with relatively little investment and reduce the impact of skilled labour shortages. The tour highlights digital solutions which can support nursing care.
