Company Name: Certh
INSTANT aims to rectify the fragmentation between civilian and military triage systems by i) analysing the strengths and weaknesses of each system currently in use throughout Europe and ii) proposing and designing a unified and modular Triage system, able to adapt to local needs and regulations in place. Identifying and analysing each system will be performed via a systematic search of the international literature using defined keywords and outcome variables, and locally by in-person interviews of medical professionals working at various hospital settings in European countries. Outcome variables such as survivability, need for hospitalization, cost per patient, etc., will be also recorded, analysed and used to define strengths and weaknesses of each Triage system. In addition to classic statistical tools for reviews (forest plots, ANOVA, and so on), data obtained will be modelled using graph database technologies in order to help recording and analysing the complex relationships of the data sets in a more flexible manner.
