Bringing digital health technologies to the point of care
Because each hospital setting is different, critical nurse pain points and digital transformation journeys are unique. ALE offers a set of best practices combined with consultancy services to guide you in creating digital healthcare solutions that works for you.
Our digital healthcare is based around open and compliant solutions that integrate with your existing systems, such as nurse call, EHR/HIS, patient terminals, and room control. And that's where the value is: communication, collaboration, notification and location-based services become available within nurses’ mobile apps, in the ward and at the patient's bedside.
How can digital health improve care?
Clinical staff, especially nurses, work in an environment that is high stress by nature. The following work-related pain points can directly impact their health and the quality of patient care:
- Walking time: average of 1 to 1.5h per shift
- Searching time: average of 1h per shift just for assets without the time to reach a person
- Alarm fatigue: created by an increased number of notifications while 70-90% of alarms are false or non-relevant
- Insecurity: average of 20% reported physical assaults
To relieve nurses from overwork and mitigate the risk of burnout (sometimes between 20 to 30% burn out rate), hospitals must create efficiencies. Digital health technologies can help reduce the burden on nurses and improve patient care.
