Project Title/Reference

Hospital@Night System

Project Overview

Nurse Coordinators/practitioners provide nursing leadership and clinical skills to all wards and patients at night, helping to reduce junior doctors working hours. They currently rely on pager and land-line communications in receiving and managing up to 200 calls a night. The project will provide a dedicated Hospital@Night task management system, supported by tablets and smartphones, freeing up time for the Coordinators/practitioners to be clinically available to patients, educate ward teams and ensure requests are prioritised in a timely manner.

  • Procurement of the H@N application and mobile devices scheduled date for completion of 31st March 2014.
