Funding Project HemaWeb
The morphological differentiation of cells is a challenging task for which experience and continuous qualification over many years is needed. In the field of diagnostics of variations in blood and hematopoietic organs the qualification of health personnel is of particular importance.
For this reason the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in cooperation with Instand e.V. is developing an interactively usable knowledge and qualification platform for professionals in hematology in the area of cell morphology.
The “HemaWeb“ platform contains four complementary modules in order to cover the significant aspects of knowledge transfer, knowledge development and knowledge assurance and to provide a professional exchange with tutorial support and certified examinations. In addition to the interactive discussion of clinical cases in webinars and case conferences through a discussion platform, a training forum with a hematologic case database and interactive test assignments is developed.
The functionality and the benefit of the platform are proven in a nationwide pilot operation. Furthermore a completely digital interlaboratory test is developed in cooperation with Instand e.V. and the German Association of Hematology and Oncology (DGHO).
