    Hello together!I have a question for the practising doctors who are now increasingly working with telemedicine and video calls.What are your experiences? Does it work correctly?To what extent is this solution currently applicable in the respective areas?Could someone share their experiences?

    Hey Maria,

    you are right – it is still quite a confusing situation. I would see the corona traffic light like many other measures: a preliminary step, which may not have been thought through completely. After all, this situation is in many ways completely new to all of us (civilians, professionals, organisations..) – so we still have to figure out what we can do better.

    For now, I think it is a nice idea with potential – in the long run, something better might come along.

    Stay safe!

    I think I have read somewhere, that a primary issue here is the simple human (mammal) nature: When something extraordinary happens, we instinctively want to understand the situation and find out if we are in danger – so Turning back in such cases is something that is difficult to control. The main problem is that the more people do something, the less reprehensible it seems to the individual. When a group stands around an injured person and gazes or films them, this objectively bad behavior becomes more and more “normal” for an individual. Many of them therefore only stare passively at the scene or even block access.

    Therefore there is a simple but quite effective approach: Addressing people and reflecting to them that their behavior is not okay. Another strategy that rescue workers use is to involve the audience, for example like this: “Put your cell phone away, I have a job for you!”

    Individuals who have been directly confronted with it have thus been effectively “removed” from the crowd and could even have a supportive effect.

    Is this something you have experienced yourself? Does that make sense?

    Hey Maria!

    While I agree with the idea to implement novel technology to combat COVID (we really should do everything we can to prevent a further outbreak!), I am skeptical about that helmet – it reminds me of the early attempts to install thermal screening technology at airports.

    Those were only semi-useful. The technology can only be seen as a precautionary measure to identify sick passengers, but it won’t identify the virus itself. There is actually an article about this on our website: https://www.iprocuresecurity.eu/thermal-screening-technology-useful-support-for-healthcare-or-unnecessary-burden-for-travellers/

    Nevertheless – I would really be interested in which other technologies could be implemented to combat the virus!

    Thermal Screening Technology – Useful Support for Healthcare or Unnecessary Burden for travellers?

    Follow up question to the usability:

    If the problem lies in the fact that elderly people have trouble with using it themselves – could new technology for the EMS personal help? – Interconnected IoT solutions and apps specifically designed for paramedics and hospital personnel, to enable them to “read” and work with patient data directly when needed?

    Do you know of current developments in this regard?

    Best,

    Johannes
