Project goals

In cooperation with the Klinik für kleine Haustiere der Freie Universtität Berlin, the Databases and Information Systems Group is developing a nationwide networked system for the detection of nosocomial infections in veterinary medicine, called VISKIT - Veterinary Infection Surveillance KIT.

Project description

The VISKIT system consists of a web service for hygiene officers and a mobile application for veterinarians and keepers. Veterinarians report the occurrence of an infection quickly and easily via the VISKIT app. With the help of the VISKIT center (web service), the hygiene officer checks whether the infection is nosocomial or not. Animal keepers use the app to record daily ward occupancy and other basic statistical data. The data are statistically evaluated and visualized by the VISKIT center. A special role is played by the globally supervising hygiene officer, who, with the VISKIT center, has the possibility to compare the data of all cooperating clinics and research institutes and thus to make a statement about the prevalence situation in the partner clinics and institutes. Currently, all german universities that offer the degree course in veterinary medicine are participating in the VISKIT project.
