Supporting coordination, communication and collaboration among care team members to benefit patient safety.
Our solutions allow you to objectively evaluate the quality of care delivered in an ICU setting. These solutions provide access to one of the largest outcomes databases in the world, containing over half a million contemporary admissions, with the greatest depth of benchmarking capabilities for you to measure and improve your patients’ outcomes.
Our critical care solutions provide a centralised location in the patient’s chart for you to access activities, view patient data, document findings, update orders and receive important notifications, such as new orders and results. You also can view vital signs, IV titrations, fluid balance and medication summary through intuitive and customisable physician templates.
By using our critical care solutions, clinical decision making is supported by providing you with the information you need to understand the context of the patient’s condition with near real-time trends. This avoids the possibility of missing or illegible data, meaning that the chances of errors are diminished and the patient experience will be a more straightforward one.
At a simple click of a button, results are pulled into PowerChart®, saving nurses’ time having to transcribe them manually and providing more time for them to spend on patient care.
“IV drips are titrated to patient-specific parameters; this means the drip rate can fluctuate at any time, making it difficult for us to know how much time is left until the bag is dry. The dashboard allows us to control for this fluctuation and do a better job anticipating what the patient needs, which helps eliminate delay in therapy of these critical medications.”
— Parth Patel, clinical pharmacist, Silver Cross Hospital
“I think it reassures the wards as well that we’re keeping an eye on things so that you can always see what’s going on at all times. It gives you an overall perspective of the Trust at any time.”
— Linzi Balshaw, critical care outreach nurse, Kingston Hospital NHS Trust
“We now can retrieve complete, reliable, and accurate information about the patient allowing physicians and other providers to make very well-informed decisions - and that overall improves the quality of care that is delivered.”
— Dr Brian Jacobs, vice president and chief medical information officer, Children’s National Medical Center
“We’ve gone from relying on a system where people are bleeping us and telling us about these patients to being able to see them, visualise them and look at them remotely, and decide whether or not we actually need to go and see those patients.”
— Lucie Sulman, critical care outreach nurse, Kingston Hospital NHS Trust
