Success at Chelsea and Westminster

Success at Chelsea and Westminster

Like most trusts in the country, we have dedicated and hardworking but busy clinicians in our wards. To improve the way we deliver patient care, we are investing in technology that can make the recording of patient vital signs more accurate, but also reduce the burden of manual, paper-based tasks by doctors and nurses.

An Innovative Mobile Web Application

  • An intuitive mobile application implementing latest touch screen technology, fully integrated using standard HL7 message protocols.
  • Automated NEWS2 score removing paper, reducing errors in manual calculations and allowing accurate reporting.
  • A graphical ward layout editor tool that enables the hospital to own ward views, essentially adding dynamic bed management to the application
  • Dynamic real time patient updates highly improve response times by alerting staff to patients whose condition require immediate or intensive attention.

Ward Layout View

Prioritising patients can be complex and time-consuming process. Our Ward Layout View offers clinicians an at-a-glance view of the ward and each bay within the ward displaying each patient's location and condition. By linking to the coloured-coded NEWS2 scores, clinical staff can immediately see which patients require more urgent attention and prioritise them on their rounds.

 

As no two wards are the same, we have developed the Ward Layout Editor tool to enable each healthcare organisation to create a realistic representation of each ward and/or clinic themselves, in order to help identify patient locations and visualise the state of each patient in relation to NEWS2 scoring.

 

 

 

An ambition for greater patient safety

 

The Trust has an ambition to digitise the process of recording and monitoring national early warning scores (NEWS) to assess the severity of acute illnesses. This approach is saving clinicians time by automating manual NEWS2 calculations and increasing safety levels by alerting staff to patients whose condition is deteriorating.

The ThinkVitals team has been very responsive to our suggestions and feedback they have listened and understood our requirements and this has allowed us to push the software forward. From the start we liked the interface of the application and the intuitive nature of its functionality.

The team flexibility in its approach has meant we have been able to create something that really works, not on paper, but also in practice. The complex nature of healthcare means there are challenges in implementing new technologies in hospitals, but by talking to the nurses and doctors using the technology, this has allowed clinical engagement to happen quickly and effectively.
