  • THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT Eisenhower Medical Center recently completed a pilot study of the Mobile Heartbeat MH-CURE (Clinical Urgent REsponse) smartphone application to enhance clinical communications. During the pilot, clinicians significantly reduced the number of steps it normally takes to locate patient information or to contact another person
    on a patient’s care team, greatly reducing their patient response time.
     
    “The ability to tie all of the clinicians who are caring for patients together and to develop a quick, efficient and secure methodology for communicating amongst those clinicians brings us into the 21st century,” says Ann Mostofi, MSN,
    RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer, Vice President, Patient Care Services. “It also affords read-only access to the medical record, so that the nurse can have information about the patient at his or her fingertips.”
     
    The Mobile Heartbeat application has been installed on hospital-supplied Apple iPhones, allowing clinicians to experience the new system of care team communications. “This new application is an outstanding tool that has
    allowed our clinicians to simplify their jobs by literally putting the patient and care team data they need, right in the palm of their hand,” says Wendy Edwards, BSN, Director, Eisenhower Walter and Leonore Annenberg Pavilion, 3 South. “If I’m standing at a patient’s bed side and have a question, I can enter a four-digit passcode into my phone and find all the data I need. It has streamlined and expedited critical tasks. click for more
