Patient Monitoring and Alarm Management Research Group

You are here:


Our vision is a Charité in which patient care and safety inside and outside the hospital is augmented in a patient- and user-centered way through the use of innovative monitoring and alarming technologies, thereby improving patient outcomes and reducing the workload for staff.


Our focus is on a holistic approach and includes the following aspects: User-centered requirements analysis (qualitative research); descriptive data analysis (e.g., of patient monitoring alerts); machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence technologies to predict events (e.g., medical interventions following a monitoring alert); and implementation science (translation of results into routine clinical practice).
