Ideally, a Nurse should be on a ward, observing and caring for patients. The reality of the NHS environment is that a frenetic pace, high workload and continuous administrative tasks reduce clinical staff’s ability to spend time at the patient’s side. Hence Staff should utilise technology to manage everyday demands of the NHS, and attend to patient’s.
Good clinical care is all about information and communication.Therefore electronic systems are being used to provide clinical staff with accurate information about patients in their care. The whole team can share this information and give the most appropriate care available with less chance of error. Used effectively, it ensures changes in patients’ conditions are noted in real time enable early recognition and deliver quick action.
Mobile technology helps doctors, nurses and other clinical staff to spend more time on wards.This in turn means that they are more visible to other staff, patients and visitors. A key reason for integrating technology into your routine is it gives your staff more time to spend where they are needed most.
What are the next steps for Technology?
With the adoption of technology, electronic systems and the clear advantages they bring, the drive towards systems that are modular and able to talk to one another is the next logical step. We could see all sorts of systems integrating with one another to provide insights into patient care allowing staff to do what they trained to do – provide the care – without the pressure of having to complete administrative tasks away from the patient’s bedside.
