Internet of things for medicine – hospital of the future gets under way.
If in future fewer hospital staff in white coats are seen scurrying along corridors, that will be because networked device landscapes are making data available more quickly throughout the building. We took over the monitoring of an extensive communication network for a renowned German clinical centre, checked for deficiencies and resilience and made it into a secure platform with access to all equipment. Medical aspects weigh most heavily in the balance here: if surgical equipment data is sent to other departments in real-time, the operating theatre door can remain hermetically sealed.
In future you will carry your medical records with you in your wallet – the new electronic health card. In an emergency, every doctor in charge can consult the colleagues who were previously involved, Intolerances and allergies are known, the medical history facilitates diagnosis. To avoid the patient being “transparent” to everyone, requires complex encryption, secure rights management and a resilient infrastructure. We are developing the foundations for this, designing test scenarios and trialling the numerous components.
