The ongoing fragmentation of medical care and mobility of patients severely restrains exchange of lifesaving information about patient's medical history in case of emergencies. Therefore, the objective of this work is to offer a secure technical solution to supply medical professionals with emergency-relevant information concerning the current patient via mobile accessibility. To achieve this goal, the official national emergency data set was extended by additional features to form a patient summary for emergencies, a software architecture was developed and data security and data protection issues were taken into account. The patient has sovereignty over his/her data and can therefore decide who has access to or can change his/her stored data, but the treating physician composes the validated dataset. Building upon the introduced concept, future activities are the development of user-interfaces for the software components of the different user groups as well as functioning prototypes for upcoming field tests.
