New patient condition early warning system to be brought in

Electronic observations could help faster treatment

Hospital patients who show signs of their conditions worsening should be treated more quickly when a new digital observations, early warning and alerting system is introduced.

 

Patientrack allows nurses to take electronic observations at the bedside, and then automatically calculates early warning scores and alerts clinicians directly so that they can intervene when necessary.

 

Patientrack has been selected by the Isle of Man Government’s Department of Health and Social Care in collaboration with Treasury Procurement and with the support of Government Technology Services.

 

The system will be introduced in phases across the hospital, and pilot wards will start using it shortly.
