Nursing observations in your hand!

App developed to support and improve the process of nursing records, through a portable device.

It allows nurses to record all activities performed, such as levels of evaluation, analysis of parameter records, vital signs, etc.

These actions are carried out with the patient, thus guaranteeing greater proximity, more confidence on the part of the patient at the same time guaranteeing updates of the clinical process in real time.

  • Nurses log into the application by scanning their own badge which contains a unique barcode with their credentials.

2 - Patients and plans arrow-down

3 - Patient Scan arrow-down

  • Upon receiving this schedule, nurses scan the patient wristband, which uniquely identifies them

  • These are used to assess the patient’s risk level, providing immediate feedback on the their condition

4 - Vital Signs arrow-down

Customer Testimonials

“With this new system, nursing staff essentially benefits from having more time by the patient.

Nurses are no longer away from the patients and spend their time with them inside patient rooms.

This gives a higher safety sensation to the patient because he feels more proximity from those that take care of him.”
