All acquired vital data has to be processed depending on the desired application. Apart from the data processing directly on the base station itself raw data or pre-processed data can be transmitted to a centralized data base, i.e. to an electronic patient file. This can be realized continuously or event triggered via a secure data channel. Alternatively single data sets can be sent via SMS using a standard Bluetooth™ mobile phone.
Access to the electronic patient file can be realized over a secure internet connection using, for example, authentification methods. The integration of a call center of a medical service provider is also possible. Accompanying our research projects and clinical trials, we have implemented a flexible electronic patient file in close collaboration with the Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI), Medizinische Informationstechnik (MIT).
