Wear a mouthguard properly – safe & protected

Wearing a mouthguard can protect us and our fellow human beings from being infected with Covid-19 – but only if used correctly.

Therefore, here you can see in different steps how to use the masks correctly and safely.

Stay healthy and protect yourself and others!


DEMIS acceleration campaign by the BMG and RKI

In close cooperation with the A.L.M., the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Medat Laborinformationssysteme is working to support German laboratories in the corona crisis.

An acceleration campaign for electronic and automated reporting channels is currently being carried out from the medical laboratories to the
public health departments worked for Covid-19 test results.

At the moment, these are reported by the laboratories or other bodies to the responsible health authority. Here, the classic way via fax or email is used, which increases the bureaucratic effort for the people involved extremely.

For this reason, Medat is working together with the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG), the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and the A.L.M. to accelerate the DEMIS project (German Electronic Reporting and Information System for Infection Protection) and to establish it as quickly as possible . The aim is to create a quick and effective solution for all concerned, which the Covid 19 test results must be transmitted in electronic form.

Two new tools: Covid 19 test results can be called up digitally

Patients can now access the test results of their COVID-19 test online. The startup DoctorBox, together with the Becker & Kollegen laboratory, which is equipped with Medat laboratory software, has developed a tool with which test results can be called up more quickly and the health care system is relieved. In conjunction with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KV), over 1,950 test results have already been passed on online to those affected. The interface is compatible with Medat laboratory information systems and test facilities are now available free of charge.

With  Telekom Healthcare Solutions,  BS Software Development  has also developed an app that speeds up the process of transmitting results by four to eight hours. The Medat customer  Labor Dr. Wisplinghoff  from Cologne, who has already implemented the app in their system like around ten other laboratories and carries out around 5,000 Covid 19 tests daily. The COVID-19 app is free of charge for the laboratory and patients and is available in the  Google Play Store  and  the App Store .

Both tools directly access data provided by Medat laboratory software. In addition, laboratories equipped with Medat software are able to transmit test results from Covid-19 tests to the patient within 24 hours. This makes Medat laboratory information systems significantly faster than conventional LIS.

We present our new module: Turnaround Time

The module “Turnaround Time” (TAT) is intended to support our users with questions about the reaction and processing speed of their laboratory. “Turnaround time” means the time that elapses between the transition from state “A” to the next “B”. What these states are is determined by the options available. By default, the time in the TAT module is determined from the time the order is received to the technical release of the measured value.

All evaluations of the TAT module can be achieved with the module QuickStat – and far beyond. With the TAT module, everyday question and filter settings should be answered in a short time with little effort. The visualization of the data for the user completes the task of the TAT module. By means of a column landscape with navigation options that can be rotated in all three axes for closer inspection, we would like to directly support the path from the overview to the detail.
Individual orders as well as a set of orders to be defined via the settings can be used for analysis. For example, an analysis of the TAT of a clinic sender representative for a week with regard to the emergency parameters. Each order should only be counted once and sorted under the longest TAT of the participating measured values.

A “click” on a column of the displayed graphic shows the list of orders and measured values. For such an order, an individual evaluation of the order can now be started with an individual assessment of the TAT for each analyte.

The time and evaluation criteria can be adjusted as required.

The module is based on a CSV matrix of the counting data, the axes of which are typically the time of arrival of the sample as hour (x), the TAT intervals in minutes (y) and the number (z) at the intersection. This matrix is ​​automatically displayed as a 3D bar landscape and can be moved across all three axes. In this way, even if the column landscape is difficult to understand, all details can be viewed.

Evaluations can be saved locally if the result of the evaluation is to be retained. The boundary conditions of the query are stored in the CSV tables as commented text. In order to come back to a casually produced evaluation, there are usually four weeks. After that, the data about the self-administration of the system are deleted. The queries that arise in everyday life are too numerous and the reason is usually of no great importance that the elimination of the data products appears necessary for reasons of system maintenance after such a period.
