The Acutelines infrastructure allows screening of all patients admitted to the emergency department, where we have the facilities to rapidly process biomaterials. We have an IT infrastructure to obtain (high-frequency) cardiorespiratory signals and transfer data from the electronic health records to the research database.
The Acutelines infrastructure allows assessing the effect of novel techniques (such as algorithms, devices) on diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, outcome and logistics in the emergency department, as well as rapid implementation of these techniques in clinical practice. Acutelines is embedded in a large academic hospital, which ensures structured data storage and management, with continued adherence to high legal and ethical standards.
Connections (via trusted third parties) with central registries allow obtaining pre-hospital and long-term follow-up data from external sources (i.e. general practitioner, pharmacy, health care registration, central statistics office, and municipal registration). Acutelines adheres to the following laws and guidelines:
- Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
- Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)
- General Data Protection Act (2016/679)
- ISO 9001:2008
Acutelines is registered under trial registration number NCT04615065 at ClinicalTrials.gov.
