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).
