iPad monitoring system to improve patient care
- 16 December 2013
An innovative iPad-based early-warning system for patient monitoring will be rolled out across Oxfordshire hospitals thanks to a £550,000 funding boost.
The System for Electronic Notes Documentation (SEND) project is supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, a collaboration between Oxford University Hospitals and Oxford University, won funding from the Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards NHS Technology Fund. The SEND project uses the latest computer tablet technology to record and evaluate patients’ vital signs, replacing traditional paper charts. It will help alert medical staff to early patient deterioration quickly and reliably, and allow that data to be shared with specialists across the hospital sites.Read more
