Verifying and Deploying 5G Cloud Infrastructure for Improved Logistic and Communication in Healthcare Facilities Dealing with COVID-19 Patients
The ability of the health system to manage a massive influx of patients is based on the combination of four factors: the personnel, the equipment, the physical spaces and the system in place. A combination better known in jargon as the 4 "S" (staff, stuff, structure / space, system). A fifth factor that is often misunderstood is synchronicity. With great adaptation to the workspace and team structures, a newly trained staff with new equipment, and a system of critical processes that evolve according to the evolution of the environment and the healthcare system status, synchronicity is essential. This synchronicity requires real time data and automations to enable already pressured teams and a stressed healthcare organization to adapt to unforeseen requests and needs.
In this project, we want to study the automated verification and deployment of a Command, Control, Communications, Computers (C4) infrastructure to improve communications and logistics in healthcare facilities treating COVID-19 patients. The assistance of such a flexible ICT infrastructure can play a key role in successfully implementing the fifths “S” within medical personnel operations. However, proper validation mechanisms should be put in place to prevent the deployed infrastructure from behaving in an unexpected and possibly dangerous manner.
