Hanseaticsoft joins ship e-health project

Maritime software provider Hanseaticsoft has joined a new project in Germany to design a platform for the ‘e-healthy ship’, using technology to optimise health management on board merchant vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The EU-funded project aims to improve health care for workers on the high seas, further develop onboard health promotion, and facilitate the implementation of health and safety regulations through the development of a specific e-health platform.

To achieve these goals, the interdisciplinary team, consisting of scientists in occupational and shipping medicine, software developers and shipping companies, will analyse and empirically survey the needs of seafarers on board four vessels, conceptualise the e-health platform and its contents, test the usability of the platform on board ships and finalise the design of its contents.

One goal of the e-health platform is to provide seafarers with medical information and the ability to contact emergency medical facilities on shore in emergencies. The exact technical design of the platform will be specified after an inspection of four vessels and an assessment of their technological capabilities (such as the maximum bandwidth available for internet connections), carried out alongside an IT representative from the respective shipping companies.

The project partners include: Institute for Occupational and Maritime Medicine (ZFAM) / University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf; Hanseaticsoft; Peter Döhle Schiffahrts; Reederei Roth; CONVIS Consult & Marketing; and other project management and public relations companies.{/mprestriction}
