E-Health Service Saving lives with software solutions
Project at a glance
Our society has never been so connected, thanks to the widespread smartphone adoption. Together with the RAMSES consortium, we’ve used the functionality of modern mobile phones to provide better assistance in health crises.
Having remote access to bystanders’ devices with up-to-date video, audio, and GPS information, emergency services are able to react faster and provide medical care in a more effective way.
Ramses can be also used in other daily-life situations, such as:
As a notification system and a way to register the events by insurance companies
As the support and medical e-consultation for the elderly people, disabled, and children
As a supporting system for the hotline
As an additional module for the ECS platform
Ramses is an independent module of ECS (Emergency Communication System), which gives the possibility for communication with the bystander (person who reports the accident) and enables;
Getting access to the GPS location of the bystander
Sending picture/video streaming from the place of the accident via mobile camera
Remote control of the bystander’s phone
Transferring the vital signs
Integrating third systems via API
From idea to solution
As a member of the consortium, we’ve gained wide expertise in leading eHealth practices. Our innovative solution was awarded the 1st prize during the Hackathon am Ring that took place in Nürburgring. Throughout the project and during the hackathon we had an opportunity to work on a panel for dispatcher service for the use of emergency centers. On another hand, we’ve also participated in the development of a mobile app to be used by people in an emergency. Taking into account the stress factor in situations of danger.
As a consortium member, we were cooperating with top European experts from the healthcare sector - cybersecurity institute KU Leuven, IMEC, the University Clinic Cologne (UKK), and the eHealth organization, amongst others. By uniting our common efforts, knowledge, and expertise we’ve created a solution for helping with the cause of 20% of all natural deaths in the EU - sudden cardiac arrest, along with other health crises.
How does it work?
In the European Union, 1000 people per day and 300 000 people per year die due to the lack of getting first aid.
The first aid and resuscitation (CPR) given by the witnesses of the accident who doesn’t have experience in it isn’t efficient. The inability to confirm the precise location of the place of accidents prolongs the time of arrival of the medical rescuers.
The App also sends the picture/video streaming from the camera of the bystander’s mobile phone and enables making an analysis of the situation and getting feedback on the information given by the witness of the accident. It gives the dispatcher the possibility of remote controlling the mobile phone, including choosing the camera, flash, and loudspeaker. Thanks to this function the risk of a random disconnection is diminished (the bystander is in a stressful situation).
The system is also responsive to the reports made by the autonomous diagnostic devices (wearables) equipped with pulse, temperature, and blood sugar sensors and the drop sensor.
The system has the ability to choose the communication channel for data transfer and
security is ensured with the key (token) sent via text message.
