The Kymenlaakso Central Hospital and Northern Kymi Central Hospital have been using Medanets observation values and the wristband management solution since 2015. Following the expansion, the package includes EWS, clinical forms for risk assesments (Braden, FRAT, NRS 2002, Audit C and VAS), monitored patients and the Admin UI reporting and management tool. A function for monitoring pain management has also been implemented in connection with observation values.
Two primary healthcare units (Karhula and Hamina), an inpatient rehabilitation unit (Hoiku) and palliative wards (Villa Apila and Villa Meri) joined as completely new units. Kymsote uses the Medanets solution in conjunction with the Lifecare electronic health record.
‘At Kymsote, we have been using the Medanets solution for quite some time. In fact, the solution is ICT at its best. It gives us more time to spend on the core task: treatment and care. Expanding the solution to cover all of the Kymsote region was, therefore, a smart decision,’ said Matti Ahola, CIO at Kymsote.
The solution is also used in hospital-at-home activities. Expanding its use into the psychiatric hospital and outpatient appointments is currently being considered.
