Animal welfare with new connection
Since 1881, the Deutsche Tierschutzbund e.V. (German Animal Protection Association) endeavors to raise people‘s awareness of animal welfare. Today, this idea is more important than ever, which is why the holding organization of numerous German animal welfare groups emerged as a very modern institution with several locations. Unfortunately, the interconnection of these sites was not able to keep up with the progress of the organization. Until now, the system used so far was complicated and unadaptive to modern demands. Moreover, it was contrary to the ambition of downsizing the IT department. Here, the Viprinet technology provided the ideal solution.
Stable Internet for Earthquake Relief
After the grave earthquake in middle Italy in October 2016, Viprinet supported Italian Institute for Geophysics and Vulcanology INGV at setting up a stable communications network in the affected region. Tragic natural catastrophes like earth quakes often leave IT and communications infrastructures destroyed or at least insufficient. In order to coordinate rescuers’ operations on site and to organize subsequent reconstruction, installing a ready-to-use communications infrastructure becomes a high priority according to disaster relief. Not only need numerous organizations, authorities, and rescuers on site to be organized, but also a communications infrastructure between the hurriedly established local situation rooms and the central offices all over Italy must be installed quickly in order to broadcast relevant data e.g. from earth quake measuring stations or drone cameras to and from the affected regions.
Saving lives by remote diagnosis
Early and appropriate treatment in medical emergencies can save lives and minimize long-term harm. Ideally, treatment should start in the ambulance while it is on its way to the hospital. Furthermore, if the patient has a potentially serious condition, directing them to the appropriate hospital and unit is also vital, so the medical team there can ensure that the necessary treatment resources are available. This is where telemedicine and eHealth solutions come into play. Transmitting relevant patient data like physiological parameters to specialists in the hospital, and making it possible for the ambulance crew to stream high-definition video from the ambulance facilitates major improvements in patient care. Falck Group, a leading
Nordic-based health solution company with a global presence in 45 countries, has equipped ambulances in Denmark with Viprinet technology to enable the transmission of diagnostic information including live video images directly to medical professionals.
