KAIROS GMBH JOINS “SMART HEALTH MADE IN BOCHUM” CAMPAIGN – THE SYMBARA CONCEPT FOR SEPSIS RESEARCH
KAIROS GmbH is part of the new campaign entitled “Smart Health made in Bochum.” Tomorrow’s medicine begins today in the Ruhr area, initiated and carried out by the Health Campus Bochum. With the unique project to combat sepsis (SYMBARA), using AI and Big Data, KAIROS GmbH takes a pioneering role in future-oriented medical IT at the up-and-coming location in Bochum.
To this end, PD Dr. Christian Stephan (Managing Director at KAIROS GmbH) and Prof. Dr. Michael Adamzik (Head of the Clinic for Anesthesiology, Intensive Care Medicine and Pain Therapy at the University Hospital Knappschaftskrankenhaus Bochum) will jointly report on the SYMBARA concept, which is dedicated to the fight against sepsis. Sepsis is an inflammatory reaction of an organism in response to an infection due to bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. It can occur at any time as a result of an infection. The probability of survival with sepsis is between 50-60%, which means that in Germany alone 162 citizens die every day from sepsis, which is the third leading cause of death.
“Imagine that in Germany a medium-sized passenger plane would crash every day!” – Prof. Michael Adamzik
In order to optimize the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of sepsis, KAIROS GmbH, as part of the Sepsis.Data.Net.NRW consortium, is attempting to decipher the complex system of sepsis mathematically using state-of-the-art IT technologies, big data platforms and artificial intelligence through pattern analysis. KAIROS implements the interfaces to the individual systems. KAIROS also has a leading role in the development of the metadata repository and is responsible for the integration, monitoring, testing and adjustments of all components. KAIROS is also in the process of developing the Decision Support module, which provides the data-supported information that doctors and patients can use to make decisions regarding therapy or diagnosis.
With this project, KAIROS GmbH joins the ranks of the leading medical IT companies in the Ruhr region, which are concerned with the important medical issues of our time beyond North Rhine-Westphalia. You can find more information about the campaign at https://www.gc-bo.de/reportage.
