NIDA: Easy to Use, Scalable and Secure

NIDA is based on a comprehensive and sophisticated client-server architecture. NIDAclient enables the user to access the data that is relevant to him. NIDAclient can be configured individually depending on the functions a user needs and the rights that are assigned to him.

NIDAserver is the communication and database centre of the NIDA applications. It manages all connections and ensures that your data remains secure. Furthermore, NIDAserver plays an important role in the communication between dispatch centre, ambulance team and hospital. Depending on your individual requirements, NIDAserver can be distributed on several platforms and sites.

Flexible Interfaces

In order to communicate with other systems (e.g. medical engineering devices, dispatch centre, hospital, accounting, materials management), NIDA has “learnt” to send data to different addressees (servers) via various channels. During an operation, NIDA communicates directly with the data provider in order to collect and display information. For example, this information may come from medical devices or ambulance computers (Carls, Swissphone, GCD, etc.).

A SOAP interface and a file interface on a XML basis are available for connecting with the dispatch centre. An HL7 interface is used for transferring data to the admitting hospital. Invoicing systems can be integrated via a file interface or database tables.
