The Use Case Infection Control

at the Medical Data Integration Center Hannover

This use case is about an automatic early warning and cluster identification system for the detection of accumulations of infections with multi-resistant pathogens (e.g. MRSA).
This also includes the identification of transmission routes within and between clinics and the examination of whether the pathogen clusters are unusual accumulations of infections. Such findings help to control the further spread of infections. In addition, possible reasons for the increased occurrence of transmissions and infections can be identified.
