The project entails the creation of a new health informatics service or product which is taken through at least one cycle of planning, implementing as a ‘beta’ product and evaluating. Examples of such services might include (but not be restricted to): an iPhone app. The work is assessed by submission of a portfolio of evidence which critically analyses the above stages, equivalent to 4,000 words.
Code blue (mobile app)
? Overview (100 words)
– history ( history of health sector mobile apps & health electronic systems)
– Current solutions ( pagers, Tannoy systems, smart devices (( e.g., Vocera)) and their limitations. ( look at page No: 8 in this doc)
Methodology: ( 100)
Survey ( using survey monkey) sent to more than 80 professionals (Doctors, Nurses, hospital directors, medical directors): 36 responses received.
The survey was aiming mainly to measure the acceptance of the idea and to decide the platform on which the app will be designed ( ios or Android or Microsoft).
– Technology revolution & proper utilisation.
– CODE BLUE ( THE APP)
Aim & objectives (100)
– Cost reduction
– ? Mortality & morbidity
– ? Time to gather the team members
– ? Quality of care
– ? productivity
? Stage one: The Concept/ perception/ Idea (75)
Literature review ( 400)
– Mobile apps in healthcare
– Sustainability of mobile apps
– Patient data privacy.
Feedback ( 300 words) : this stage the feedback was via a survey.
See the graphs (screenshots) provided down here: ( here it is required to analyse the feedback (graphs) and discuss it as initial feedback on the idea.
– Reflective writing on the first stage (main points):
– Had to create a survey to decide which platform.
– The acceptance of the idea.
– Supervisor support.
– Any point you think will be good as reflection on the first stage.
? Stage two: Virtualisation (75)
At this stage I made an app map to clarify my idea for the professionals to get their feedback. (see down the contents of the site map and the brief description:
Name: Code Blue
All hospitals around the world deal with life threatining situations, where all the professionals who are involved in these situations must gather immediately at one place to provide the necessary healthcare. To achieve a fast response from all emergency team members, an effective communication channel must be initiated within these sites.
Current Solutions & limitations:
Pagers are used widley, they require users to carry extra device in their pockets.
They come in different features, the basic principel is to page all involved team members with specific code that in some situations require them to call a number to get more info about the location and the current status. This process requires extra time which is must be minimized in such situations.
2- Customized digital communication devices: Example: (Vocera)
Used in some hospitals as well as in other industries. They require carrying extradevice. Limited capability in term of details about the cases. In addition to the high cost associated with these devices.
3- Internal communication system:
Announcement through the hospitals speakers from a central location about the type of the emergency case. The main issue is that these speakers are not availabe at all locations within hospitals. Additionally, such aanoncement could panic patients who are familiar with these codes.
A mobile application that can do all preivious features and extras without carring extra devices.
Users can get immidiate notifications about any cases at any location with brief/detailed information about the case. It also enable the team leaders to access the location of all members and the estimated time to arrive. It also notify the second response team members about the case ( if they/ one of the first response team is not in the range or not going to arrive on time).
Literature review (400)
– Cost effectiveness
– Patients safety: Mortality & morbidity
Feedback (400): the feedback was through email.
See the responses down for feedback stage 2:
Dear Medical Directors/ Doctors/ Nurses/ Health Informaticians
As a part of my study (MSc of Health Informatics), I am required to create a new health informatics service or product which is taken through at least one cycle of planning, implementing as a ‘beta’ product and evaluating.
I actually chose to create a mobile app that can replace current solutions that are being used now for announcements, alerts and calls for life threatening cases within hospitals (i.e. Strokes)..
The application initially will be only for Code blue cases, that’s why I have chosen this name for it..
The attached file will demonstrate the idea of this application. Kindly, have a look through it and I will appreciate your feedback about it through these points:
1) limitations of this app from your point of view.
2) Suggestions for overcoming these limitations.
3) Areas that needs to be modified or altered.
