GROUNDVISION leads in offering additional physio obs including Glasgow Coma Scale, Bristol stool, blood glucose levels, fluid balance and patient Acuity/Dependency. Users can now receive alerts when patients are at risk in many more situations, ensuring fast reaction times which can save lives and prevent the spread of infection. GROUNDVISION can be integrated with existing patient care systems, or used as a standalone solution to give early warning of deteriorating patients. The solution can be configured for use by different groups such as nurses, critical care teams, infection control, ward managers, junior doctors and consultants.
As well as eliminating errors associated with manual recording and calculation of early warning scores, GROUNDVISION helps nurses and clinicians to record:
- Bristol stool observations, allowing analysis alerting to possible dehydration, or in the case of diarrhoea, potential cases of clostridium difficile (C.diff).
- Glasgow coma scale, to gauge the severity of an acute brain injury;
- Fluid Balance, to monitor what the patient takes in and what comes out, with built in calculations to allow for perspiration and respiration based on age and weight, flagging up potential kidney issues, or water retention;
- Blood sugar/glucose observations.
- Acuity and Dependency.
The system is fully configurable, allowing it to send alerts to different user communities depending on the situation and action required
GROUNDVISION provides an easy to use alternative to paper-based solutions and can be used with a tablet or smart phone. Based on real time calculation functionality, for example with Bristol stool observations, if a potential case of C.diff is suspected, the system triggers a series of processes, such as sending samples for testing and isolating the patient due to infection risk. The system can also initiate C.diff and sepsis 6 care pathways. The system is fully configurable, allowing it to send alerts to different user communities depending on the situation and action required.
