Optimizing nurse workload and patient care through automation
Nurses at the Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand share their experiences with a new technology for data management and how this helps to invest more time in patient care.
Large hospitals like Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand handle a high volume of point-of-care patient data every day. Naturally, these critical data should not be lost or overlooked by the nurse. Data analysis also requires considerable time, which then cannot be spent on patients. In 2019, Bumrungrad International Hospital started to use an innovative technology that is suited to the task of data analysis, offers efficient workflow for better time management, and increases patient satisfaction. The use of a mobile device reduces the workload for nurses as this system collects all patient results and generates a clear and structured format for review. Moreover, all information, such as from operators, reagents, and devices undergo quality controls that comply with regulatory guidelines. A modern POC IT system simplifies processes for transmitting crucial patient data via a single interface to an information system that can connect POC data to various hospitals within its network.
