Nursing staff can enjoy seamless access to comprehensive patient data through their mobile device thanks to a new partnership between global interoperability leader Enovacom and Nordic nursing app specialist Medanets.
The collaboration will enable safer, more efficient care by providing healthcare staff with simple access to data from multiple monitors and devices, and digitizing time-consuming processes.
Through the partnership, medical device data is automatically gathered using Enovacom’s Patient Connect interoperability platform. This is fed through to the hospital’s electronic health record (EHR) and to the Medanets mobile nursing app in real-time, giving staff access to comprehensive patient data at the point of care. The Medanets app enables nurses to capture vital signs and other nursing data on a smartphone, replacing the cumbersome paper-based approaches that nursing staff often have to carry out. The app comes with a broad range of time-saving tools such as task lists, photo uploads and messaging.
The two organizations are already working together at a newly-built development at Central Finland Central Hospital in Jyväskylä, Finland. Since work began in late 2020, Enovacom has fed data from 1,500 devices into the EHR and Medanets to give clinical and nursing teams accurate and timely data.
“The Enovacom and Medanets solutions are very complementary. Medanets provides a user-friendly front-end for e-observations and many more nursing activities,” said Simon Chassain, Area Sales Manager for Enovacom.
“By helping nurses with tools that are the most time-saving, such as observations, our app becomes an integral part of their workflow. This is delivering huge extra value to our customers,” added Juha-Matti Ranta, Chief Executive Officer of Medanets.
Medanets and Enovacom – which is now a subsidiary of Orange Business Services – are looking to work more closely across the collective customer base, as nursing staff become a central part of global moves to a mobile-driven, digital-first approach to frontline care.
