The innovative care app for Bundeswehr hospitals serves two important purposes: it reduces pressure on staff and improves the quality of care. Patient requests can be booked and prioritised more efficiently, which makes the care process more structured and smoother.
Care staff in hospitals are chronically overworked. They only spend 15 per cent of their time actually looking after patients. Their remaining working hours are spent doing administrative work, moving around the hospital, coordinating processes and taking care of a million other things that need done. Military hospitals have more surgical beds than clinics for civil use do, and the average age of their patients is considerably lower. Digital solutions provide a useful opportunity to manage administrative tasks more effectively and free up resources for actual care work.
