Efficient Care without Compromising Quality

Medanets success

For a healthcare organisation, making purchase decisions is often a lengthy process that requires complex strategic planning – after all, the decision made will have a major impact on the work the professionals do to provide their patients the optimal care.

Purchase decisions in public healthcare are influenced by a variety of factors: providing better care, reliability of the solution and the supplier, attracting and retaining employees, and resource optimization.

In this article, we focus on the optimization of resources. You can read more information about other factors and the impact of mobile solutions have on them by clicking on the articles below.

Resource Optimization – Case Mobile Documentation

In 2017, the Swedish healthcare district of Västra Götaland tested and investigated the basic feature of the Medanets application, i.e. mobile documentation of patients’ observation values. Key observations of the study when the observation values are recorded in real time at the bedside to the Electronic Health Record:

  • Each inpatient ward saved on average 70 working hours per month
    • – 92.5 minutes per day per ward with two measuring rounds
    • – 138.75 minutes per day per ward with three measuring rounds
    • – 185 minutes per day per ward with four measuring rounds
  • Erroneous entries reduced by 74%
  • Up-to-date information was available to everyone immediately after having been recorded. Previously, the average delay was 22–25 minutes.
  • Nurses felt that their job satisfaction improved, because now they have more time for actual nursing.

All of these observations are fully in line with the observations made by Medanets customers in Finland. For example, the Hospital District of Southwest Finland justified its procurement of the Medanets application in 2015 primarily by the fact that through the Medanets solution, nurses have more time for personal interaction with the patients, which has been found to improve the quality of care.

Connections to Patient Monitoring Systems

According to calculations on saved time made by the Acuta unit of the Pirkanmaa Hospital District in 2013, nurses saved 17 seconds per measured parameter with the Medanets Monitored patients feature. The gross savings at an inpatient ward where 500 monitor entries per day are made is some 100 hours per month, for example.
