Tiina Kotipalo started work as Head of Quality and Development at Medanets at the beginning of February.
All inpatient wards of the Seinäjoki City Hospital started using the Medanets mobile application in the early summer of 2020. The application was accepted with an open mind, and the related user experiences have been positive.
The Early Warning Score of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients at the Turku University Hospital is determined with a mobile application, using a calculation method tailored for this particular group of patients.
In order to ensure high quality of treatment and patient safety, the nursing staff must have the required information present exactly when it is needed. This means immediate access to vital information related to the patient’s care. The information must also be adequately comprehensive, unambiguous and ready to use.
The mobile photo feature, developed together by Medanets and Neagen, was taken into production use in Tampere University Hospital. The implementation was carried out in good cooperation with Istekki Oy.
As many as over 50% of hospitalised patients do not receive adequate nutrition, as malnutrition or the risk of malnutrition cannot be identified. At the Tampere University Hospital (Tays), Medanets’ mobile solution helps address the risk of malnutrition according to the care guidelines.
Pirkanmaa Hospital District in Tampere Region has developed an operating model suitable for the treatment of all patients, called ‘Say NO to Pressure Ulcers’. To support the operating model, a custom, evidence-based pressure ulcer risk assessment method was developed and introduced to the Medanets mobile application.
Graphs and dashboard make understanding the overall situation of the patient and the ward easier.
The work practice programme, organised in the third week of November, was part of the "You can! Girls and Technology" project aiming to inspire girls to pursue a career in the field of technology. 15- and 16-year-olds Leila and Olive chose to work with Medanets during the week.
The increasing demands and the growing number of patients were behind the decision taken by Vanajavesi Hospital to adopt the Medanets mobile solution.
