Electronic Registry for Elderly Care Services (ERPEL)

Executive Summary

The portion of elderly people within the Germany population is steadily increasing.  As a result, the demand for adequate elderly care services is high. Currently, capacity planning and strategic decision taking is conducted by districts individually. As of today, this federated approach is lacking standardized analysis methods to create a holistic national view on the care topic.

User groups of ERPEL: Family members, social worker and social planners, as well as care service providers (excerpt).

The Electronic Registry for Elderly Care Services in Germany (ERPEL) (German: Elektronisches Register für Pflege-Dienstleistungen in Deutschland (ERPEL)) forms a longitudinal database of care-specific  measures from individual districts to form a holistic national overview. For example, it contains details about available elderly care services, the current available capacity, demand for a specific service in a specific region.

ERPEL allows the up-to-date quantification of offer and demand for elderly care services across geographical regions. Thus, it enables a standardized methodological approach for interactive data analysis and exploration to support demand planning.

Amongst others, we are addressing the requirements of the following user groups:

  • Family members, who struggle to find appropriate elderly care for their relatives,
  • Social workers, who want to offer guidance for elderly care services,
  • Social planners, who aim to support governmental decision-making through provision of latest data, and
  • Care service providers, who are interested in the current and future demand for strategic planning and investments.

    Tele-Board MED

    Executive Summary

    The documentation of patient treatments is a crucial but unloved part of psychotherapy, because it is time-consuming and error-prone due to an ineffective combination of analogue and digital media. Progress notes are usually hand-written and once official documents are requested, piles of paper documents are gone through and assembled to digital files. We developed the interactive documentation system Tele-Board MED, which allows patient and care provider to jointly take notes and freely structure them on a whiteboard-inspired graphical user interface. We found that Tele-Board MED increases the patient’s engagement in treatments. A second goal is to increase the efficiency and correctness of medical documentation, which is a matter of ongoing research. Generally, documentation panels in Tele-Board MED replace paper sheets with handwritten therapy notes. As a next step, we want to close the gap between documentation panels and clinical documents. In particular, discharge letters and medical reports shall be created semi-automatically from Tele-Board MED data.

    HiGHmed Medical Informatics Consortium

    Executive Summary

    The HiGHmed consortium aims to develop and use innovative information infrastructures to increase the efficiency of clinical research and to swiftly translate research results into validated improvements of patient care. These aims are tightly connected with challenges to integrate and further develop solutions of innovative, internationally interoperable data integration and methods, with the aim to demonstrate their added value for health research and patient care. The concepts must be designed in a way that will help to develop sustainable structures and with the perspective for an easy roll-out to other hospitals. You might want to refer to the HiGHmed consoritum website for further details.
