Sensor Data Meets Social Networks Reflecting on Benefits in the Case of a Patient Room

Abstract : In a hospital, information exchange is essential to save lives and to prevent life-endangering mistakes. Information exchange is supported by a hospital information system (HIS). From a theoretical perspective, the deployment of an HIS is promising because it reduces errors and duplication of information. In practice, however, there are some major problems concerning the usage of such a system. One way to deal with these problems is introduced in this paper: the integration of sensor data into social media. The paper concentrates on the conceptual benefits and risks such an integration may generate. It focuses on the case of a patient room.
