Technology

Problems we Address

Health Facilities Unaware Of Their Error Risks

Using outdated technology like paper drug charts, DOS and pagers, leading to information silos across hospitals, inaccurate communication between clinical staff and inaccurate patient records.

Governments, Insurers and Patients Unaware of Unnecessary Costs

Wasting the most expensive beds in hospitals with patients who would be more comfortable with Home Intensive Care Services. Allowing Emergency Departments to overflow, instead of using bed management software to redirect ambulances to where beds are available. Leaving patients waiting for rehabilitation placement, instead of offering virtual reality and haptic sensors from day one.

Patients Unaware They Are Receiving Outdated Treatments

People with type 1 diabetes never told about algorithms that are able to predict and prevent life threatening conditions like hypoglycaemia. People with cancer never told that potentially unsafe doses of chemotherapy are being given in some hospitals using paper drug charts, while other hospitals are using software designed to prevent this happening.

Good article. I’d like to see clinical staff rewarded for finding and helping fix errors. We know where the bodies are buried. https://t.co/8dQcFmXveT
