This year’s nominees for the Global Mobile Awards (GLOMO Awards) were announced by GSMA, the world’s biggest mobile event organizer. The list of nominees includes global companies, such as Google, Apple and Accenture —and alongside them Medanets, a health technology company based in Oulu.
The GLOMO Awards is a competition that awards innovative mobile industry products, such as apps, devices and services. Winners from around the world are selected from ten different categories. The prizes will be presented in the MWC Barcelona ceremony in the presence of more than 107,000 expected attendees on 26 February.
Medanets from Oulu is competing in the category Fourth Industrial Revolution for the title of the Best Mobile Innovation for Health and Biotech.
A Pioneer in Its Industry Targeting the World
Through the Medanets smartphone app, hospital and health centre care staff can browse and record patient data immediately in conjunction with the care event. As the data is transferred directly into the Electronic Health Record, there is more time left for what is essential, namely taking care of the patient instead of working on the computer.
According to the latest study conducted in Sweden, the Medanets mobile point-of-care solution brings time savings of more than 70 hours a month for units accessing the solution since the patient data can be checked and recorded immediately while in the patient’s room. With the new procedure, the flow of information regarding the patient’s condition is not broken and the patient can be offered safer care of better quality.
This mobile innovation is now accessed by more than 30 hospitals and a number of health centres in Finland and Sweden, making Medanets the industry market leader in the Nordic countries. The company vision is to provide its solutions globally in the future.
An Aid to the Increasingly Growing Workload of Nurses
Medanets has further developed its solution together with its customers, the healthcare professionals. Through the mobile solution, they can now record the observation values (such as the blood pressure, the pulse and the temperature) measured from the patient, fill interactive forms, determine the patient’s risk score and make medication administering entries, among other things.
In addition to going global, the future plans of the company include bringing mobile solutions to an increasing number of tasks performed on the computer, which burden the nursing process. The purpose is to support and facilitate the increasingly growing workload of nurses and provide the patients better care.
