Software improves CPR, keeps complete record during codes
UNMC’s newest patient management application streamlines medical complexity and simplifies decision support into a simple blueprint that standardizes care for all patients regardless of circumstance, stress, training and experience.
It’s rare when a patient’s heart stops or codes, but when they do doctors and nurses must have current guidelines at the ready. It’s a complex, high-stress scenario where any number of things can go wrong. A seemingly simple error can be the difference between life and death.
Emergency medicine physician Michael Wadman and nurse practitioner Thang Nguyen joined forces to create a catch-all solution: A web-based application that helps physicians and nurses in real-time analyze patients, obtain guidelines, and document the course of care.
The patient management software helps physicians and nurses get it right all the time. It mitigates the potential for error. As a clinically-driven decision support system, it analyzes the patient’s status based on user input and offers clinically-based recommendations.
At the same time, it raises the standard of care, creating better outcomes, better doctors, better nurses and happier patients.
With this system at their side, doctors can fully focus on improving the survival and outcome of code patients.
Because the web-based application automatically cues providers, it can be easily modified to include guidelines for other medical emergencies, such as stroke or poisoning. The application could also function as a training tool for the next generation of clinicians.
A working application has been created, and UNeMed is looking for a partner to develop a user interface into a market-ready product.
