Your VIOKID Medical Experts
Emergency departments in Germany have been experiencing an increase in patient flows in recent years, especially due to patients with low treatment urgency (Scherer et al., 2017). As a result, emergency departments and paediatric outpatient clinics are experiencing a shortage of the already moderate resources of medical staff and spatial capacity. VIOKID can support parents in their decision-making through video call-based assessment and thus intervene early in the patient management process. With VIOKID, let’s dare to lift our gaze to focus on new innovations and bring about change.

Emergency Nursing Specialist
On the one hand, I think the project is extremely important to relieve the (children’s) emergency rooms and on the other hand, I find it exciting to be part of the project.
M.A. Health and Social Management
As an experienced nurse, I see the excessive demands of colleagues on a daily basis and often witness children coming to the emergency room who do not need urgent treatment. Parents are often unsure what to do and often have no choice but to drive to the hospital and wait for hours because paediatric practices are closed at weekends and in the evenings. At this point, as a VIOKID expert, I would like to support each side and ensure efficient and professional support.

How VIOKID works
Imagine your child falls off a bike or has a fever.
You are unsure whether it is really just a graze or a harmless infection. You take your smartphone out of your pocket/purse and open VIOKID. Already registered, you can start a video call with your medical experts by clicking on the “Contact medical experts now” button. The medical experts such as doctors and nurses are ad-hoc and 24/7 available for you.
Your medical experts will conduct a structured telemedical initial video assessment interview with you and your child, specifically tailored to the needs of children.
As a result, you can confidently decide on the next steps with feedback from your experts.
Medical expertise always as a companion.
With VIOKID, parents and family members receive a qualified opinion on children’s illnesses and injuries 24/7. This optimally supports parents in deciding whether a trip to the hospital is necessary. Your emergency experts are always
there thanks to VIOKID.
YOUR EMERGENCY EXPERTS ARE ALWAYS THERE
In the event of an injury to your child, experts will support you via VIOKID with a structured and well-founded initial assessment. Thanks to VIOKID, your emergency experts are always with you and can be reached immediately 24/7 if necessary.
Unnecessary travel and waiting times in the emergency room are a thing of the past for you.
THE BEST DECISION FOR YOUR CHILD
With VIOKID, you always make the right decision for your child in an emergency, supported by our medical experts. You save yourself and your child unnecessary trips to the hospital. With future VIOKID versions in the event
of serious injuries, your emergency experts will make a structured emergency call directly to the appropriate control center, thus saving important time until the arrival of the rescue service.
FOR EVERYONE WHO CARES FOR YOUR CHILDREN
Not only you benefit from VIOKID, but ideally everyone who cares for your children. Grandparents, uncles and aunts as well as your babysitter have the possibility to make an optimal decision in case of emergency. This gives you additional security if you are not personally present.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
The central emergency rooms of the hospitals have been underfinanced for many years and are therefore permanently overloaded. With VIOKID you actively help to ensure that less non-urgent emergencies are presented in the emergency rooms. These currently account for ca. 40% of all cases in emergency rooms and contribute significantly to the overload. In this way, you help to improve the quality of care in your region.
