In Germany, the amount of calls for EMS are steadily on the rise, resulting in a growing demand and workload for emergency physicians and advanced paramedics. While at the same time, the number of general practitioners and smaller hospitals are steadily decreasing. Furthermore, an aging population, with an increasingly complex medical history, leads to situations and emergencies in which a more detailed assessment and therapies are urgently needed. Therefore, common EMS systems need to find a solution to handle these situations. We have developed a holistic telemedical concept to connect in-hospital clinical emergency physicians and paramedics on the scene. By implementing and connecting systems that are already partially being used in common EMS in Germany, live audio and video communication, including vital signs between the two, can be established by keeping costs low, affordable, and at the same time protecting patient data in line with General Data Protection Regulation.
