Getting started

Clinical Assessment Tool

As part of the Scotland response to the global coronavirus an SBAR-style COVID-19 assessment tool has been developed to be used across paramedic, emergency department, specialist assessment and treatment area, clinical assessment centre contexts to improve situational awareness, decision making, safety and handover.

The application allows clinical assessment data to be collected at the point of care, in real-time and in a structured format. Capturing the data in a structured way means it can provide immediate analytics to clinicians, clinical leaders and senior managers and can also be integrated with other systems very easily.

Features
