Abstract

Digitalization and standardization of documentation in medicine are increasingly progressing. In the decision of the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) for a staged system of emergency structures in hospitals and in the report of the expert committee for development in the healthcare system on needs-oriented guidance of healthcare, the actuality of the topic is underlined with concrete naming of future tasks. The section on emergency admission protocols of the German Interdisciplinary Association of Intensive and Emergency Care Medicine (DIVI) has been working for years on this topic and has repeatedly reported on the progress of the topic in clinical emergency care. Standardization and digitalization represent the foundation for health services research spread across locations as well as the possibility for benchmarking. Digitalization makes the secondary use of primary clinical routine data possible. Digitalization decreases redundancies of data transmission by avoiding manual data input in, for example registers.
