How do I use patient cards?
Patient cards are designed as an easy method to hold patient demographics, notes and details of tasks related to a particular patient. They can be shared in message streams for opinions or referrals and are held under patients which can be selected by the homepage.
How can patient cards be used?
Patient cards can be used in whatever way you and your team find useful. An example use case for ward-based health professionals is to keep a digitised patient list which can improve handover and shared care scenarios. We have also found the patient cards to be of particular benefit in multidisciplinary teams where all aspects of each patient’s care can be updated in real-time.
From the app home page, follow these steps to create a patient card:
- Click the green + button in the bottom right-hand corner and enter their name
- Add further details regarding their ward or location
- Click “More Info” to assign the patient to a team or use the scan QR code function to input the patient demographic from their plastic wristband
The description can be updated in real-time by anyone within the team that the patient is assigned to. Tasks can also be assigned to individuals within the team or to the team itself. For more details on how to use the task function read more here. You can also attach photo files to each patient. You can read more about photo functionality here.
How do I send a patient card to a colleague?
You can send a patient card to a colleague by clicking the green + button to the left of the message box and attaching the patient card you would like to send.
