The “General Operation Manager” – a software that has been developed for the last 2 years at the ACQUA Klinik in cooperation with the partners Mednovo (Berlin), SPI (Leipzig) and IRDC (Leipzig) has been awarded as “BEST OF E-Health 2015“ by the Medium-Sized Business Initiative. “The aim of the software is to improve the processes outside of the OR,” explains Iris Gollnick, manager of the project at the clinic. The GOM facilitates the implementation of security-related checklists using a software that allows the communication of all employees via mobile tablets. Thus, the software may eliminate the possibility of the check-in of a patient without a valid clotting test. The software would generate an alert and block further steps – regardless the executing employee. “Especially, with regard to a high number of patients and high patient frequency the system contributes to the aim allowing no mistakes”, as of Gollnick.
