A hosptal has introduced a smart application which will enable staff to continue to deliver the very best patient care.
The new Perfect Ward application will enable staff at King’s College Hospital, Camberwell to record information accurately as well as more quickly and efficiently.
Perfect Ward will replace existing pen and paper audits used to record information regarding the quality of care provided.
Now, staff record their audit findings directly into a smartphone or tablet and, once completed, automated reporting enables teams to have an immediate view of what is working well and areas that need improvement.
Karen West, who led the implementation, said: “Healthcare providers invest a considerable amount of time and effort in quality audits but many are still using highly manual processes which places a huge administrative burden on frontline nursing staff.
“It’s so rewarding to see technology that reduces this burden while providing staff with clear information that they can immediately use to help improve quality.”
Shelley Dolan, chief nurse at King’s, said: “The introduction of Perfect Ward will enable King’s to continue to provide the very best care for our patients.
“As well as reducing the time required to undertake audits, the accuracy of the information captured as well as the realtime reporting will enable us to react more quickly to maintain our high standards of care.”
