Kainuu Social Welfare and Health Care Joint Authority is improving patient safety and boosting operations with Medanets application.
Kainuu Social Welfare and Health Care Joint Authority introduced Medanets mobile point-of-care application in 2015. Medanets won this contract through public tendering. With the mobile solution, patient’s observation values can be recorded directly into the hospital’s Electronic Health Record through a mobile device, such as a smartphone or PDA.
Today the Medanets solution is utilized in Kainuu for browsing and recording patient observation values, for the automatic data transfers of patient monitors and the systematic evaluation (Early Warning Score) of the patient’s condition, as well as for conducting risk analyses (the Braden scale, nutritional risk screening (NRS2002), and the Falls Risk Assessment Tool (FRAT)).
Mobile solution introduced also in primary health care
Primary health care has an equivalent documentation need as central hospitals. Therefore, Medanets solutions were decided to introduce not only in Kainuu central hospital but also in four primary health care units.
In Kainuu, we are very satisfied with the solutions supplied by Medanets. Bedside caregiving entries improve patient safety and streamline operations significantly. Our implementation project has been very successful, and it has stayed fully on schedule as well. Medanets has proven to be a good and reliable partner.

Right treatment at the right time
Medanets app enables more harmonized service regardless of where the patient is being treated; the data is available anytime and anywhere. Caregiving also becomes safer as real-time patient data helps to ensure right treatment at the right time.
As document processing is integrated into a single mobile solution, the working process of healthcare professionals becomes easier as well. This also reduces the number of errors and incorrect entries. With the introduction of this solution, professionals have had more time for patient care – in several wards, up to more than 120 hours per month.
