The aim of this international project is to substantially improve medical care during European disaster relief missions. The various EU Member States are contributing their specific expertise in order to develop a mobile emergency field hospital which can be quickly set up and used to treat a large number of patients from first response to hospital care. ICCAS is tackling the challenge of creating an optimal infrastructure and networking medical equipment and IT assistance systems. And it will also generate digital patient records intended to ease the workload on medical personnel from diagnosis to therapy and documentation.
