Together with the project partners University Hospital Mannheim and Research Center for Information Technology, the transfer of care for geriatric patients is digitized within the framework of SereNaWeb and secure cross-sector communication is made possible. This project is supported by the Ministry for Social Affairs and Integration with funds from the State of Baden-Württemberg.
After successful treatment, hospitals discharge a large number of patients every day, some of whom have to be cared for by other medical, nursing or rehabilitative facilities. If further treatment by other care institutions is necessary for a patient, this is organized by the hospital.
Communication currently takes place via paper, fax and telephone, which creates a lot of effort, information is lost and transparency is not always guaranteed.
The aim of the SereNaWeb project is to improve the interdisciplinary exchange of information in the discharge process and the follow-up care of geriatric patients between hospitals, the follow-up care providers and the payers. For this purpose, processes and responsibilities are to be coordinated, and a web-based IT platform that simplifies, develops and evaluates the exchange of information, communication and coordination between the individual actors.
