Welfare District of Päijät-Häme introduced Medanets mobile solutions in the autumn of 2017.
Medanets and Welfare district of Päijät-Häme concluded a contract covering the mobile point-of-care documentation and automatic data transferring. The solutions were introduced in September 2017 starting from the Pediatric Unit. Medanets won this contract through public tendering.
Today, the Medanets application is used by thirteen wards in the Welfare district of Päijät-Häme, covering not only observation and monitor values, but also Early Warning Score and Risk Assessment Tools (BRADEN, FRAT, NRS2002, CAM, MNA, BDI21, AUDIT C, Mini-Intervention, AUDIT65 and GDS).
The measured vitals and other observation values are recorded wirelessly using Ascom Myco 2 smartphones. Recording is done next to the patient and the data is transferred directly into the Electronic Health Record. Earlier entries can also be browsed wirelessly without leaving the room.
With automatic data transferring, data from patient monitor systems can be transferred wirelessly directly into the Electronic Health Record, either automatically or by the caregiver’s acknowledgment. In this way, documenting errors are reduced and double entries are eliminated.
Same device for documentation and nurse call alarms
At the same time, the Ascom Unite communication solution will be implemented at the Pediatric Unit. The Unit’s Ascom Myco 2 smartphones are thus also used to manage alarms from a nurse call system and medical devices improving workflow optimization.
