Doctors, nurses and care professionals at Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (KGH) are using System C’s care co-ordination app to communicate securely through text and picture messaging, receive alerts and perform e-handovers, as part of an initiative to co-ordinate care and improve patient safety.
Use of the software has proved invaluable in dealing with COVID-19. Less face to face contact reduces the need for changes in PPE, while information can be shared with colleagues off-ward. Other benefits include the integration of pathology and patient administration systems, so clinicians receive automated, audible alerts on their mobile device when a new positive COVID-19 result is received.
