About this project

The problem we solve:
Junior nurses & doctors may not appreciate the situation of deteriorating patients. We constructed a system based on MEWS scoring to automatically alert nurses to escalate care based on pre-defined algorithm.
About our solution:
E-MEWS scores of 4 and above call for a senior resident bedside assessment/ treatment and score 7 and above triggers CCRT call.
Progress to date: We achieved high progress and seen reduction in number of cardiac arrests in the wards.

How We Help Patients

Junior medical staff may not appreciate early signs of deterioration in the after-hours. Our project helps to reduce unnnecessay complications of delayed care when that happens.

How We Help Education

EMR helps to audit nursing and physician interventions when someone gets an unplanned ICU admission or an unexpected cardiac arrest in the general wards.

How We Help Physicians

Electronic medical alerts help to promptly escalate medical care to prevent unexpected deaths and morbidities caused by delayed care in the after-hours (when care is usually handled by junior staff).
