The Need for an International Medical Emergency Dataset

Judith Born, Jan Wohlmann, Christian Juhra

Abstract

A significant number of problems in emergency care are caused by a lack of provider access to pre-existing patient information at the point of care. A particular difficulty is the access to information on the medical history of patients from other countries. This is due to a number of reasons such as language barriers, technical and safety hurdles, differences in expectations concerning content of the data and workflow differences between emergency room departments. With increasing numbers of travellers, a cross-national information exchange of relevant medical data in case of emergency is becoming more and more important. Therefore, this paper aims to discuss possibilities and requirements for setting up an internationally available emergency data set.
