News & Events

The results of the European research project Medolution (Medical Care Evolution) will be presented at the symposium Perspective Telemedicine at Hanover Medical School on 13 March 2019.

Medolution focuses on the development of telemonitoring systems for artificial hearts. An intelligent management of the complex structure of sensor technology, network, big data, systems and cloud shall reliably monitor the functionality of the artificial heart. Part of the task is the compilation of the necessary system administration services, fault tolerance procedures and security mechanisms.

Medolution Project

The Vision

Medolution's goal is to reduce the costs of healthcare while improving the patients' quality of life.

  • Dealing with huge heterogeneous datasets
    Doctors and patients receive targeted notifications and warnings about relevant conditions at an early stage and are thus proactively supported in their decisions. 
  • Integration and combination of these data
    Physicians are supported in making health-related predictions on the basis of continuous trend analyses.
  • Safety and reliability in the patient's environment
    It is provided to exchange health-relevant information reliably and sensitively between devices and persons.

Big data analyses can significantly accelerate medical progress when artificial hearts are used. In the so-called Big Dependable System (BDS), networked non-reliable components should now be able to make defined contributions to critical functions. A sustainable aftercare, treatment and emergency concept for patients with cardiac support systems enables patients to return to "normal" everyday life without fear and with a good quality of life.


Artificial Heart Monitoring

The Institute for Cardiovascular Research at the Schüchtermann-Klinik Bad Rothenfelde explains the German part of the Medolution project:

“The lack of donor hearts has meant that many patients with severe heart failure on the waiting list have no prospect of an appropriate donor organ. Due to the enormous technical development and miniaturization of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) - colloquially also called artificial hearts - the implantation of these systems has become the only alternative to heart transplantation over time.

In order to provide these patients with adequate and sufficient medical monitoring to avoid life-threatening complications not only during their hospital stay but also at home, Medolution's German subproject plans to develop and test a comprehensive IT-supported telemonitoring and telemanagement system for LVAD patients."

At the symposium, various installations for patient monitoring, automated data analysis and targeted notification will demonstrate the topic of reliability:

Demonstrators:

  • LVAD (artificial heart) simulator with telemedical monitoring
  • Management of telemonitoring devices
  • Cloud-based data analysis and alerting
  • Anonymization of medical data

Self-test for the Module of the Month of January

The DAKS function module 'Email Dispatch' could be interesting for you if...

  • you want to ensure that a broadcast call information reaches certain subscribers in any event — regardless of whether they were able to actively accept the call or not.
  • you want recipients who have already positively acknowledged a broadcast call to be able to retrieve the content of the call at any later time, e.g. in the case of longer texts or more complex detailed information.
  • you would like to have the ability to provide one or more responsible persons with the most important broadcast results in a short email summary, e.g. to ensure that an important task has been taken over.
  • you want one or more persons responsible to receive a complete broadcast call log automatically, e.g. for documentation purposes.

If you were able to agree with only one of the statements above, the 'Email Dispatch' extension can already pay off for you!

Self-test for the Module of the Month of February

The DAKS application module 'Info Telephone' could be interesting for you if...

  • You regularly have to cope with a high volume of calls in certain situations or events on a regular basis in order to answer mainly similar questions (e. g. to keep informed about the current state of traffic, weather or troubleshooting).
  • You need the ability to make different announcements available to internal and external callers in the same situation.
  • You generally want to enable your callers to listen to more than one announcement, even through a selection dialogue. E. g. program notes, message progressions or messages on various topics.
  • You want to enable callers to listen to previous broadcasts again - including repeated display text transmission.
  • You want to prepare recurring announcements and store them for regular use, e. g."No incident","Incident","Lunch break", etc.
  • You want to play different announcements with time-controlled settings.
  • You also want to record and play back current announcements ad hoc.
  • You want to enable live broadcasts by telephone, e. g. conferences, works meetings and board meetings.
  • You generally want to provide audio sources via a telephone number, e. g. microphones, radio stations, etc.

If you were able to agree with only one of the statements above, the 'Email Dispatch' extension can already pay off for you!!

Self-test for the Module of the Month of March

The DAKS extension module 'DAKS Customized Operator' could be interesting for you if...

  • You have to trigger complex procedures in case of an incident, e. g. several broadcast calls at the same time with different combinations of announcements.
  • You want to trigger processes quickly and efficiently with just a few clicks.
  • Due to the high importance of incidents in your company, they often lead to tense situations in which errors could occur.
  • You want to support your employees to fulfil their tasks in a responsible manner through intuitive and safe operation.
  • You want to design user interfaces according to your own requirements, e. g. industry-specific or subject-specific optics for better identification with the operation.
  • You want to display graphical elements such as site plans or floor plans on your user interfaces.

Self-test for the Module of the Month of April

The DAKS extension module 'DAKS Desktop Client' could be interesting for you if...

  • You have workstations with customer contact / public traffic in your company / organisation. (e.g. public authorities, citizens' offices, job centres, financial institutions, shopping facilities, emergency rooms, gateways or reception areas)
  • You need a particularly discreet alarm option, e.g. to have colleagues join you in escalating customer conversations "as if coincidentally" without offending the customer with an obvious alarm trigger.
  • You are looking for an alternative or supplement to physical emergency buttons - levers or pedals, e.g. because they are too conspicuous, impractical, disturbing or for other reasons insufficient.
  • You prefer an easy to implement emergency button solution and want or need to avoid additional cabling and connection installations.
  • You want to direct the alarm of an employee to colleagues in neighbouring offices, both to their phones and to the screens, including exact information on where the person asking for help is located.
  • You value detailed logging of all alarm processes, e.g. in order to use these as evidence for criminal proceedings against violent offenders in escalated cases.

  • You want that conferences between predefined members start fully automatically, triggered e.g. by the time of the day, through error messages, by pressing an alarm button, or at the simple click of the mouse.
  • You have frequently experienced connection losses among conferees.
  • You want to apply crisis and emergency conferencing, and all calls that have a lower priority shall automatically be interrupted so that important members are switched to this time-critical process.
  • You want to have the option to configure your own customized telephone conferences with many detailed settings and parameters to best match your specific application scenarios.
  • You require very secure telephone conferencing for your sensitive and confidential subject matters.
