These have undoubtedly been challenging times lately. Special times require special measures. That’s why we at ClinicAll focus all our energy and our technological and digital expertise on supporting the healthcare sector. We all know that in our new world with Covid, digital applications are essential to ensure our health in the long term and to make our lives more comfortable again. In particular, patient treatments must be safe and relieve and also protect doctors and staff.

During this global pandemic, we have learned many new things that need to be implemented quickly. Nobody can predict the future, but life has changed dramatically for everyone and will keep us busy for a long time to prevent another outbreak like this. We will no longer take familiar procedures and guidelines for granted. ClinicAll is here to provide the necessary flows and channels for a life in a safer future. …

Nursing staff can now find out immediately via app what patients actually need or want. This is a considerable advantage over the conventional patient bell. This is because staff can plan their work better with the digital patient call and save unnecessary walking distances every day.

The digitalization provider ClinicAll has developed an app that is designed to connect patients and nursing staff in a simple way — digitally and contactless. The possibility to send messages within the clinic directly from the smartphone should relieve the nursing staff. …

There are now numerous solution providers for digitalization in the healthcare sector. Which of them set the tone and which countries are ahead in digitization? One thing is clear: there are still big differences in speed worldwide,. One might think that Germany has already come a long way as an innovation country. But to put it positively: There is still a lot of potential, and the solution providers are ready.

Every country has a healthcare system, practically everyone wants to go digital, but there are still big differences.

Because the willingness to innovate is so different internationally, solution providers need to be flexible. Teams that are distributed around the world and know the requirements of different countries and regions are therefore not rare. Hermann Kamp, CEO of the digitization company ClinicAll International says: “Our company is based in the USA, we develop our software mainly in Switzerland, we have renowned clinics as customers in many countries, including Germany, but the Arabic market, for example, is very important to us. Because here the will to innovate is very strong in some countries. If you take a look at the comfort and safety you experience there in the healthcare sector, you will quickly realize that there is still a lot of catching up to do in Germany and Europe.” …

Already five years ago, this study showed very clearly how high the stress load for the caregiving staff is because of undifferentiated patient calls: Additional walking routes amount to up to 1 hour per station and shift.

For exactly these reasons, the caregivers need full digital support. And in the current times, that’s even more important than ever before!

In many countries all around the world, the situation is getting serious: Hospitals are overcrowded because of the Corona virus, doctors and staff overloaded, and people are deeply unsettled, facing many restrictions in their daily routines.

Every day, there are new reports: The Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) has spread over 100 countries by now. Practically anywhere on this planet, people face the risk of infection. Currently, the biggest expansion areas are in China, Korea, Japan, Iran; and in Europe in Italy, Germany and France.

Some regions report terrifying horror stories: In Italy, the healthcare system is stretched to the maximum as many hospitals cannot take any more patients. Especially people that belong to risk groups are suffering badly: Elderly people (over 60–65 years) or those with certain pre-existing conditions such as heart diseases. COVID-19, a severe pneumonia caused by the Corona virus, may lead to death in many cases. …

What happened!? Our large global community has grown together so much in recent decades, many of us travel the entire globe, we share social networks, chat rooms, apps for communication and the Internet. We all communicate with people on a daily basis whom we have met in all kinds of ways, we form new friendships, respect the traditions of others and exchange information.

In our connected world, we learn about disasters in other corners of the world through news and the Internet within mere minutes after they happen, and we all do our best to feel with the victims, provide help and support. …

Like everyone else, we from ClinicAll follow closely all events related to the Corona virus. Currently, cases are documented all over the world. Of course, people are concerned and there is a huge demand for information and professional help.

We are absolutely convinced that an online healthcare community is an invaluable support in this situation. The problem is that traditional information channels — like TV or even the internet — work in one direction only: Announcements, info maps, etc. There’s also a big danger of scaremongering or the distribution of fake news.

Now, who will answer all the individual questions of the persons concerned? In case of an epidemic event, not everyone can just walk to the next doctor: There might be travel restrictions, practices and hospitals are overburdened or much too far away. …
