Assessment Centres and Hospitals
The app has been rolled out to specialist COVID-19 assessment centres with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde in Scotland. It proved incredibly successful with overwhelmingly positive feedback from users. A pilot is underway to test two hospital variants in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the UK.
The key test of any clinical tool is whether the end users feel the benefits. Critically the app has built confidence, saved time and provided consistent documentation that follows the patient. Of clinicians surveyed who are using the tool, all felt it had a positive impact on clinician care and would recommend it to others.
One of the key weapons in the fight against COVID-19 is trustworthy data. All the data collected by the app is mapped to International standards (SNOMED CT) and made available via PowerBI, providing a real-time view of COVID-19 in the clinical setting.
