SwipeCare® - eHealth in hospital
With SwipeCare, the doctor or nurse use a questionnaire on his tablet when examining the patient, which gathers all the information, step by step, and immediately stores it digitally. The system is ﬂexible and can be conﬁgured for different forms of care, for example orthopaedics and advanced medical care in the home.
The inbuilt pre-decided structure of examinations and medical record writing, together with step by step methodology makes it easy for the caregiver to introduce and develop a uniform and structured way of working. It also gives caregivers an increased sense of security knowing that they covered everything concerning the patient.
Maria Holmberg, CEO at Praktikertjänst N.Ä.R.A., explains what she appreciates most about Stelpa. Stelpa is Praktikertjänst's internal name for SwipeCare®.
Learn processes faster
Training temporary personnel and handling the newly employed takes a lot of time in healthcare. With SwipeCare they can quickly get started with the processes since most of them are built-in. The tool also has integrated professional support which gives even more on-site assistance.
Write medical records faster
Today writing medical records is a time consuming process where assessments are often dependent upon which doctor and department the patient visits. Since many records are ﬁrst dictated or handwritten, it often takes a long time before the notes appear in the collective medical record database.
Student Nurses about SwipeCare®
What do tomorrow's nurses think about eHealth? Do today’s nursing programmes cover eHealth at all? We captured the spontaneous reactions of Sophiahemmet University’s nursing students to SwipeCare® after they experienced the app at Praktikertjänst’s recruitment booth during the university’s Jobbtorg event.
With SwipeCare the patient can go in and see exactly what examinations the doctor has carried out and what the results were. The system can give the patient information in ‘ordinary language’, which markedly increases patient participation as well as transparency.
Ramp-up time for an updated way of working is signiﬁcantly reduced when new processes automatically appear in the caregiver’s workﬂow. The same applies to manual checklists which have proved to be difﬁcult to implement, where SwipeCare’s inbuilt structure makes checklists a natural part of the work. Even following-up is easier since everything is documented.
The mobile implementation of the tool, together with the intuitive user-interface mean that it is also easier to go through the checklist together with the patient. You can even let the patient fill in the data him or herself which increases patient participation.
More effective management process
SwipeCare makes the medical record management process and the documentation of a patient's visit more efficient, and can be used by doctors when they work in different software and IT environments.
SwipeCare received a silver medal at HIMSS Europe Conference and Exhibition 2018 in Barcelona for Outstanding ICT Achievement. HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) is the largest health IT membership organisation in the world.
