Southern Cross Healthcare worked with Orion Health to develop an electronic vital signs module, which is now live across its hospital network as part of their Clinical Workstation.
The mobile solution enables nurses to record and monitor a patient's bedside vital signs on a mobile phone, calculates the Early Warning Score and provides alerts if a patient is deteriorating. Around 1600 nurses have been onboarded to use it.
The e-Vitals module was piloted in September 2020 at Brightside Hospital and was fully operational across all 16 Southern Cross Hospitals by the middle of last year.
