Positive inpatient identification and reliable tracking throughout the hospital stay, binding the individual to accompanying documents, applied medications and procedures, etc.
Medical supplies and medications stock tracking, orders and deliveries management, sealed/unsealed expiry times, as well as automatic control of the application to the right inpatient.
Inpatient movement tracking throughout the hospital wards, as wells as matching to the assigned rooms and hospital beds for increased security and elimination of incidents due to mistaken identity.
Gathering, combining and processing of all incoming data streams from the other three modules for managing the daily operations, as well as deriving general or focused healthcare insights.
Background and foundation
Our team of IT professionals, experienced in the development and implementation of integrated management systems, has partnered up with several anaesthetics wards to identify gaps in current hospital operations and to define an IT oriented approach to their solution. The resulting integrated hospital ward resource planning and management system is a platform operating on two levels – in the daily medical routine and in hospital performance synthesis/analysis by combining data from various demographic, healthcare and medical sources to be superimposed on the particular data of the individual medical facility. The main benefits of this approach are: better understanding of cause and effect relationships; optimised supplies and resource planning; reduced supplies wastage; reduction in human error factors; reduced patient handling times; reduced paperwork and administrative burden on qualified medical personnel; overall reduction of personnel and patient stress due to technical issues. The project is a beneficiary of FIWARE Finodex accelerator under FP7.
