Brief Summary in Lay Language

The aim of the project AKTIN is to develop the uniform, standardized and interdisciplinary clinical documentation for all emergency department patients. Such documentation – an emergency department medical record (ED Record), represents the foundation for establishing a national emergency department register.

The use of an ED record within a clinic improves the information transfer between different organizations. Also, the unification of the documentation creates the number of possibilities for cross-clinic evaluations, the health-care research and quality improvement in the form of benchmarking. The user-friendly digital format will help to reduce the redundant documentation, improve the accounting procedures in outpatient as well as in the inpatient area.

An emergency department register is a modern tool for the quality management optimization in emergency departments and for the fundamental improvement of health-care research in the acute medicine in Germany.
