On average, 23% of the patient population in an ED is sitting in the waiting room. Adding to the stress this puts on clinicians, are the patients lying on stretchers in corridors. Slowdowns, patient dissatisfaction, and clinician burnout are a huge problem.
Regulatory efforts attempt to curb slowdowns and improve patient experience. That’s not enough. Hospitals need to tackle workflow issues head-on. As demand rises, the pressure to improve is at an all-time high. Clinicians are increasingly frustrated and impatient.
The QiiQ solution will help emergency staff to reduce execution time for emergency protocols. By exploiting inexpensive technologies and engaging design , we will TRACK & REPORT interventions in REALTIME along the treatment pathway.
Tag at Triage
ED arrivals receive a small Bluetooth beacon...
Setting Time Zero
From emergency arrival to discharge, all patient movements are automatically logged.
And when staff are also equipped with beacons...
Auto-Capture of all Clinician-Patient Encounters
All patient-staff encounters are logged without distraction. Staff smart devices can receive context-sensitive alerts and checklists.
Pursue and exceed the goals that matter...
Dashboards Where/When Needed
At a glance, know how you’re doing, and receive critical notifications at the right time/place.
QiiQ Beacons are tiny computers: cheap, low-energy transmitters using the Bluetooth Smart technology to broadcast data and communicate with mobile devices. They enable amazing possibilities based on proximity and identity.
SMART MOBILE DEVICES
Smart mobile devices equipped with our secure software recognize nearby beacons, allowing for automatic logging of patient-proximity events (exceeding a minimum). Clinicians may then be prompted to instantly code the event based on a simple checklist.
QiiQ SECURE SERVERS
When wifi is available to a clinician’s smart mobile device, it will communicate with our secure system and store logged data. In turn, this data becomes immediately available to our visual reporting engine, keeping patient treatment status available to everyone on the team – when they need it.
Know how you’re doing while there is still time to change your results!
Of course our solution must be profoundly useful to you. But if this is not fun for you to use, then we have failed.
We know your budgets are really tight. We’re building our technology using using inexpensive consumer technology. We think you’ll love our pricing.
LIVE STATS ANYWHERE
The results of our data capture technology are only useful if they inspire your delivery teams to perform optimally. This means that the results must be readily available to hospital staff, and must be in a form that can be interpreted quickly. We will work with you to ensure that live data streams to screens in the right places on the clinical floor. They will also be available on smart devices so clinical staff can see what’s happening no matter where they are.
This is an incredibly exciting time to be in healthcare, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. According to Harvard economist Michael E Porter, this is the time for the industry to embrace change. We recognize it’s happening, despite enormous resistance from all corners. We’re on your side, and want to help make it easier for all clinical staff. We’re very comfortable with technology, and can make it easier for you, too. We’re at your service!
Skills We Use
Perspective comes from a lifelong enthusiasm for and practice in the field of healthcare. We wouldn’t have started nor be without it.
@techguy "they cited patient-facing options like wearables, mobile apps and self-service tools. They also said they were looking at a number of provider-facing solutions which could ... improve patient flow, including care coordination apps and tools..." a QiiQ bullseye!
Finally! Someone who says that EHR's are not well-designed! (Okay - I was joking about that, but...) They do write some clever things about how the EHR UX could be improved: fastcodesign.com/90175194/how… Let's do it!
