ASTER - Acute Stroke Care - Telematics for Ambulance Vehicles

Franziska Wolf, Carsten Edelberger, Thomas Wolf

Abstract

In the collaboration project ASTER secure communication structures for ambulance vehicles are developed in order to optimize care processes for paramedics in cases of stroke. Ambulance vehicles will be equipped with various communication devices and technologies in order to enhance the care procedures in the preclinical phase. IT-security and communication availability are the essential aspects of high-sensitive and mobile communications developed for this case, because wireless transfer of sensitive data such as patient and case related data will be involved. The structure and communication networks is designed and validated using different scenarios of acute stroke care in order to answer the requirements towards the new communication structure needed for security demands. In order to secure this high level data the project is using certificated encrypted connections and a central communication node, which will be presented in detail. The upcoming demonstrator of the ASTER project, a full applicable ambulance vehicle will be equipped with the proposed technologies and systems in order to enhance the emergency procedures for paramedics and patients suffering stroke.
