The Sars-CoV-2 pandemic affects not only everyday and social life, but of course also the
research done within the SFB-TRR 161.
Around the world scientists collaborate, share their results, and communicate in a new way. We
see a new dynamic in many research infrastructures, which could in many sectors lead to lasting
Our researchers started interdisciplinary projects and cooperations to help with their
expertise. In teams they try to find answers to pressing questions related to the coronavirus
Here we put together a list of these projects and activities, our researchers are participating
New IT infrastructure for the Constance hospital
Oliver Deussen and
Görtler are currently building up the IT infrastructure for the expected Covid-19 rush at the
Constance hospital. This includes
- app for SWAT team deployment planning and occupancy overview
- a video server for medical training material
- Microsoft Teams provisioning
- introduction of the internal messenger
- configuration of tablets for communication between Covid-19 patients and nurses and
Oliver Deussen, vice speaker of the SFB-TRR 161, about this project:
“Seeing more and more Covid-19 patients coming is a clear reminder of the importance of our
work done here. It is stressful, but also very exciting, because otherwise one would hardly have
the chance to work in a clinic in a state of emergency, so to speak, directly at the front
CoronaVis—Online tool showing intensive care bed capacities of hospitals
Screenshot of CoronaVis online tool showing the intensive care bed capacity status in
CoronaVis , is an interactive online tool for visualizing up-to-date hospital capacities within Germany.
The platform was developed by a team of 15 participants from the chairs Data Analysis and
AG Daniel Keim ) and Visual Computing (
AG Oliver Deussen ), in consultation with
Hans-Joachim Kabitz , chief physician of the Constance hospital. The online application allows doctors to obtain
an overview of the intensive care bed situation of German hospitals. Data displayed was gathered
DIVI Intensive Care Register , the
Robert Koch Institute (RKI), and the
German Hospital Federation (DKG). Currently, we display the bed-status (occupied, limited, and available) for 975
hospitals in three categories: ICU low care, ICU high care, and ECMO. However, we hope to gain
access to more detailed data from the RKI, including the actual number of free beds soon. In
addition nearby helipads are displayed.
