Tittle:
UK SME offers its messaging and workflow app for healthcare professionals for testing in hospital settings.
Summary:
A UK SME has developed a secure messaging and workflow app for use by healthcare professionals in hospitals and other healthcare institutions to replace current pager systems. The SME is looking to develop the app for different locations and healthcare systems and seeks to partner with hospitals and healthcare institutions to test the app and provide feedback for further development. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a technical cooperation or a research cooperation.
Description:
Swift and accurate communication within healthcare settings, especially hospitals, is an essential part of healthcare management. Currently the predominant way of contacting doctors and other hospital staff is through use of a pager / bleeper system. This current system means a staff member is paged and then has to find a phone in order to answer the page and use pen and paper to write down information passed on in the call. This methodology is inefficient, inflexible and prone to error. Some medical professionals attempt to address this through the use of existing messaging services and smartphones but this is less than ideal as they are not secure enough for the transfer of sensitive information that is typically part of these messages.

A UK-SME has developed a secure messaging and workflow application compatible with smartphones that can replace the pager system entirely and offer additional benefits. This app enables closed loop communication with individuals and groups such as surgical teams and allows easy and secure information transfer as well as management of daily tasks. Having completed the app currently clinical trials to test the app in a hospital setting are underway in the UK.

The SME is looking to test the app in hospital and healthcare settings in different countries in order to further develop the app to be relevant to the issues and challenges found in different locations and with different healthcare systems. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a technical cooperation agreement or a research cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
1. Secure closed loop communication compatible with patient information obligations.
2. Enables individuals or groups such as surgical teams to be contacted.
3. Enables digital transfer of information.
4. Provides auditable trail of information transfer and eliminates missed pages.
5. Instant communication, no need to find and wait for a phone.
6. Enables easy prioritisation and escalation of tasks through a colour coding system.
7. Similar to existing messaging apps so does not require additional training to use.
8. Compatible with smartphones so does not require equipment or infrastructure investment.
