Computer Science Graduate Seminar: A Framework for the Successful Design and Deployment of Electronic Triage Systems

Monday, August 06, 2018, 2:00pm

Location: Seminar room 5053.2 (B-IT Research School, opposite to AH VI)

Speaker: Mr Erion Elmasllari, M.Sc.


Triage – the prioritisation of victims by emergency of treatment – suffers from various well-known problems that impact victims' survival chances. Many electronic triage systems have been proposed as a solution, but none of them have been accepted by emergency responders. Furthermore, the reasons for the rejection have never been satisfyingly analyzed until now.

The dissertation identifies key criteria for the acceptance of electronic triage systems and presents a conceptual framework, targeted at system designers, to actively guide them towards well-accepted e-triage implementations. An example implementation based on the framework is designed, implemented, and evaluated in large-scale trials, followed by a retrospective, higher-level look on the limits, risks, and intrinsic issues of introducing ICT support in triage.

The computer science lecturers invite interested people to join.
