KIAFlex – Interaktive KI-Assistenz zur prädiktiven und flexiblen Steuerung im Entlass- und Überleitungsmanagement

Eine verlängerte Verweildauer und krisenhafte Entwicklungen nach Überleitungen der Patientinnen aus Krankenhäusern in Nachsorgeeinrichtungen entstehen häufig bereits während des stationären Aufenthalts im Krankenhaus, wenn die poststationären Anforderungen suboptimal ermittelt werden, die Sozialarbeiterinnen überlastet sind und keine Zeit für ausreichende Leistungsdokumentation bleibt.

Ziel des Projekts KIAFlex ist ein KI-basiertes Assistenzsystem zur Verbesserung klinischer, organisatorischer und administrativer Prozesse im Entlassmanagement, welches das klinische Personal erheblich entlastet und gleichzeitig zu einer Verbesserung der Versorgungskontinuität beim Übergang in die Nachversorgung führt.

Für die prädiktive und flexible Steuerung der Prozesse im Entlassmanagement soll der spätere Nachsorgebedarf einer Patient*in schon beginnend mit der Aufnahme prognostiziert und begleitend mit Diagnose und Behandlung nachjustiert und angepasst werden. Zu den maßgeschneiderten Entlass- und Überleitungsprozessen gehören außerdem die proaktive Kommunikation mit Angehörigen und Dokumentation im Prozess durch einen virtuellen Sozialarbeiter- und Dokumentationsassistent (Chatbot).

Projektpartner sind das Universitätsklinikum Bonn, die Universitätsmedizin Mannheim, die Hochschule Furtwangen, das Deutsche Forschungszentrum Künstliche Intelligenz und die Empolis Information Management GmbH.

BloG³ – Strengthening the data sovereignty of patients through blockchain-based health data management

In the German health system, patient-related data is collected and managed independently by the various actors. The lack of interoperability of these heterogeneous systems also leads to a fragmented and complex digital health profile for every patient. This leads to information asymmetries among all actors involved in the supply process. This problem manifests itself particularly at the sector transition. If a patient is transferred from acute inpatient treatment to aftercare structures such as rehabilitation, care or the home environment, these information breaks may result in a reduced quality of treatment.

The BloG³ project uses a blockchain-based, decentralized data and rights management system to make the scattered data available centrally in an individual health profile. This is tested along with real application scenarios (e.g. oncology) from discharge management. The networking of health data enables personalized and needs-based care. This continuity of care is reflected in more efficient and effective treatment for the patient. This is realized through a digital platform that guarantees patients and third-party providers transparent access to health data at all times - despite decentralized data storage.

Project partners are the FZI Research Center for Computer Science, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Free University of Berlin, the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Pflegewerk Berlin GmbH, the C&S Computer und Software GmbH, the easierLife GmbH, the CircularTree GmbH and the ITK Engineering GmbH.

SereNaWeb - Entlassplattform

Duration: 11/01/2018 - 10/31/2021

SereNaWeb – Cross-sector aftercare of geriatric patients using a common web platform

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.

KommmiT – Digital Health im Sozialraum und Quartiere

Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

Project website:

Communication with intelligent technology - KommmiT

The aim of the "KommmiT" project is to develop a service network to strengthen the participation and media skills of senior citizens. The service network is based on two pillars: a local service office and a digital tablet app system. The service office particularly addresses older people who live alone and only have a small social network, but also older people with a Turkish migration background. Civic senior citizens should act as everyday and technical assistants who explain the technology and communicate with the target group on an equal footing. The tablet app system enables access to services in the areas of living, mobility and care.

A particular challenge is to personalize the interaction concept precisely. For example, texts should be read out automatically or translated into Turkish if necessary.

Project partners are the Welfare Organization for Baden-Württemberg, the University of Heidelberg, the FZI Research Center for Information Technology, the State Office for Communication Baden-Württemberg, the State Capital Stuttgart, the MedienKompetenz Forum Südwest, the meeting point 50plus / Evangelical Church in Württemberg and Unitymedia.

Situational support and crisis intervention in care - situCare

The aim of the "situCare" project is to develop a new, technology-based approach to relieve the burden on family carers in intensive and palliative care. Augmented reality techniques, ambient sensors and interactively networked objects form the basis. In the project, these technologies will be further developed and integrated with one another in a system that can independently recognize care situations, give caring relatives situational assistance, for example in the operation of devices, and support communication with the other actors in the care and supply network. The project is characterized by a consistently interdisciplinary and user-centered approach that is oriented towards a successful transfer into practice. This also includes the appropriate consideration of the relevant data protection aspects.

The project partners are VitalAire GmbH, the Palliative Network Freiburg, the Furtwangen University and the FZI Research Center for Information Technology.

INSPIRE – Digital Health bei der Begleitung von Schlaganfallpatienten

Duration: 11/01/2010 - 10/31/2013

Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

Increase and design the quality and productivity of health services with IT support - INSPIRE

After a stroke, those affected and their relatives are often faced with complex challenges: health effects have to be managed and at the same time everyday life has to be reorganized.

The Stroke Manager informs stroke patients and their relatives along the care path and accompanies the planning of the next steps from relocation to inpatient discharge to the coordination of outpatient services. The Stroke Manager is supported in planning and coordination by the Care and Case Management software CareCM. Patients are informed and cared for individually by means of a paper-based stroke folder or an electronic stroke health book. The Stroke Manager looks after and advises those affected by a stroke during their stay and after they have been discharged from hospital on further care in rehabilitation, aftercare and secondary prevention.

Project partners are the FZI Research Center for Computer Science, the KIT Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Neurological Clinic Bad Neustadt / Saale; the Bavarian Red Cross - District Association of Lower Franconia and the German Stroke Foundation.
