US-based smart point-of-care mobile networks for healthcare provider PatientSafe Solutions has implemented clinical communications and mobile alert consolidation at Colorado’s Craig Hospital.

In collaboration with the hospital’s existing alarm technology providers Draeger and Connexall, the company has created a customised, integrated solution with the PatientTouch mobile platform to improve workflow and patient experience.

The company’s clinical team has conducted an in-depth assessment to understand the strengths and weaknesses in Craig’s communication workflows in order to ensure the solution best fits the needs of the hospital’s team environment.

Under the deal, an integrated system has been developed that provides contextual alerting directly to the PatientTouch application.

"Instead of carrying multiple devices around the hospital, our clinicians can leverage a single device."

Craig Hospital applications manager Andrea Elmquist said: "As a rehabilitation centre specialising in spinal cord and traumatic brain injury, we are extremely focused on patient-centred care.

"We understand the importance of providing our clinicians with the right technology so they can better focus on patient care.

"When PatientSafe presented an opportunity for our team to integrate our current alarm system securely within the PatientTouch application, we knew this would decrease untimely interruptions for our clinicians and improve our patients’ experience."

Via open APIs, the Draeger monitoring technology delivers notifications of patient alerts such as out-of-range blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate directly to clinicians.

Elmquist added: "Instead of carrying multiple devices around the hospital, our clinicians can leverage a single device and one application for contextual alerts, secure messaging and voice communications, and referencing patient information.

"This consolidation allows Craig Hospital to further improve our clinical workflow and provide a better patient experience."

The company noted that the alert is routed based on availability, care role, assignment, and priority to the appropriate clinician to avoid untimely interruptions and minimise alert fatigue.
