Medanets & Welfare District of Päijät-Häme

Welfare District of Päijät-Häme, Lahti Region, introduced Medanets mobile solutions in the autumn of 2017. Medanets won this contract through public tendering.

Bedside documentation

Today, the Medanets app is used by thirteen wards in the Welfare district of Päijät-Häme, covering not only the observation values and monitored patients features, but also Early Warning Score and clinical forms (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. Documentation is done next to the patient and the data is transferred directly into the Electronic Health Record. Earlier entries can also be browsed right away without leaving the room.

With the patient monitoring feature, data from patient monitor systems can be transferred directly into the Electronic Health Record, either automatically or by the nurse’s acknowledgment. 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 was 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 optimisation.
