The nursing crisis in Germany and the time pressure that it places on staff and related professionals such as doctors, wound managers, and therapists, presents great challenges to everyone. Especially when staff is sparsely spread, the only way to ensure patient safety and achieve high efficiency is with high-quality documentation of care. Some of the challenges with paper documentation: unavailable files, illegible entries, risk of mix-ups, double documentation, and exclusive access to case files. iMedOne® Care, however, makes the entire care process more efficient. Clinics use it to document all content directly on a tablet or smartphone at the point of care.
- Automated, error-free documentation with the care workstation from iMedOne®
- Supports health care providers in taking patient history and vital signs
- All information is available immediately to everyone who needs it, preventing repeated requests
- Doctors leave their orders, such as medications and therapy plans, and caregivers can view them at any time
- Care planning and patient scoring can be done directly at the care workstation
- Standard text blocks speed up care reporting
- The module supports bed planning and discharge management
- If the IT infrastructure or software is not working, patient data can also be retrieved offline
- Care complexity score (PKMS) and drug therapy safety check (AMTS)
ELECTRONIC CARE WORKSTATION
The iMedOne® Care workstation for documenting care, in combination with point-of-care documentation in the iMedOne® Mobile hospital app, is a system for electronic charting that has been thoroughly tested in practice, including CPOE, wound documentation, visualization of the care process including automated OPS code generation for invoicing, such as PKMS and Dekubitus, preparing electronic care reports, viewing labs and other results, electronic order entry, PPR, and including integration of individual customer forms and intranet or internet sites.
- Tools to support processes, such as task management and visual signals, make it easier to follow the big picture.
- Information needed on the go can be viewed and captured with a smartphone or tablet at the point of care.
- A workflow-supporting legal concept, change histories that can be traced at any time for auditing purposes, and a model for non-centralized, redundant data retention in case of failure of the electronic documentation system.
Electronic charts on the iMedOne® Care workstation are better than their paper predecessors in terms of speed, availability, and legibility. With automated, error-free documentation, all information is available immediately.
Automated care record enables uniform, structure capture of patient conditions across buildings: from admission, during care and up to discharge, including situationally adapted care measures.
All workflows from the hospital ward can be found here: text blocks speed up entry of care reports, the module also supports bed planning and discharge management, and it can provide a station overview.
The estimates of patient status captured continuously during care and the check on the effectiveness of care measures can be used to dynamically adapt care planning measures. At the end, all necessary reports can be generated at the push of a button.
SAFETY CHECK FOR MEDICATIONS
Doctors and caregivers can start a drug therapy safety check and prevent undesired drug effects. The care workstation indicates when prescriptions are inadequate for elderly patients and catches double medications.
EVERYTHING SECURELY IN HAND
When it comes to availability the iMedOne® Care workstation does not compromise: If the IT infrastructure or individual components of the software should have an outage, whether planned or unplanned (such as during an update), doctors and caregivers can access patient data offline as well.
