At a mass accident with over 25 injured there is often more medical service needed than immediately available on site. This shortage has to be minimized by fast and targeted collection and transfer of data and information as well as by telemedical involvement of external doctors.

The project’s aim is a faster and better medical first aid at mass accidents. Therefore a standard information and communication system is to be developed in which all current systems can be integrated. Furthermore the work of the emergency personnel on site shall be supported by the integration of modern technology, like data glasses, mobile devices and the involvement of a tele-emergency doctor. The real-time recorded data and information are integrated in a decision and supporting system and are presented appropriately to the particular user. To guarantee the acceptance of the system, its effects on the sequences and processes of the rescue personnel will be investigated and the developed demonstrator will be evaluated.

On the one hand, the innovation consists of the adaptation of new technologies to the scenario of large-scale emergencies. On the other hand the technologies’ integration in current systems of rescue teams to optimize the rescue chain is essential especially for the acceptance of the system. The practical feasibility of the solution is guaranteed by the cooperation of sociological research and the end user from the start.
