The project "ResKriVer - Communication & Information Platform for Resilient, Crisis-Relevant Supply Networks" is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWE) as part of the AI innovation competition "Artificial intelligence and networked data technologies for infectious and other crises threatening the economy". The aim of the ResKriVer project is to develop a digital platform for collecting, documenting and analyzing information about supply networks for crisis-relevant goods and resources. With the help of ResKriVer, on the one hand, the resilience of these networks should be strengthened in the event of a crisis or disaster, and on the other hand, the platform should improve communication with the population and with crisis teams.
During the three-year term, the development of five demonstrators is initially planned that will demonstrate the platform in the context of supplying substitutable goods and resources, supplying blood reserves, preclinical emergency medicine, large-scale and long-lasting fires and supporting the work of crisis teams should. The ResKriVer consortium is open and interested in looking at further crisis and disaster-relevant scenarios, especially in the context of industrial applications, and building a more comprehensive ecosystem around the core of the application partners and technology providers.
At the Charité, the project is being implemented by the cardiovascular telemedicine team (contact person + Charité project manager: Prof. Dr. Friedrich Köhler) and the Institute for Transfusion Medicine (contact person: Prof. Hans Bäumler). Two use cases are specifically processed by the Charité:
1. Preclinical emergency medicine using telemedicine for patients with life-limiting chronic diseases (e.g. cardiovascular or oncological diseases) and urgent need for surgical interventions of maximum care in the case of crisis-related limited treatment capacities:
Objective: To ensure adequate referral of patients with chronic, life-limiting diseases and high surgical urgency in a hospital with maximum care (e.g. cardiovascular or oncological diseases) under crisis conditions. If the resources for these interventions are limited due to a pandemic or catastrophe, these patients are left untreated at home and are placed on a waiting list. Intelligent, telemedicine-supported management is intended to prevent excess mortality from pandemic or disaster-related patients in these waiting patients.

2. Supply of blood reserves:
Objective: Securing adequate provision of resources in an emergency area and intelligent allocation of blood products to hospitals with maximum care for pandemic or disaster-related emergency situations, as well as securing the blood supply in times when there is a relevant shortage of blood donors (e.g. vacation times or in hot summer months). For this purpose, a concept for a mobile donation facility is being developed together with the associated partner S-Bahn Berlin and for a drone-based transport of blood samples. Furthermore, an app is being developed to address and control blood donors in terms of time and space.
