Vital Sign Collection

Challenges
Nurses handwrite patients’ vital signs first and then input those data into a computer, resulting in significant overhead, errors, and high costs. Besides, illegible or inaccurate handwriting may result in medical errors.

 
Solution
 
Vital Signs Measurement

Healthcare providers use equipment to measure patients’ body temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and breathing rate.
 
Vital Signs Input

  • Healthcare providers input those data into Chainway mobile device, which then sends it to the hospital’s back-end system via 4G or Wi-Fi wireless connectivity in real time. The system automatically tells whether these data are in normal range.
  • Replacing manual data entry with electronic data management improves accuracy in healthcare process.

 
Vital Signs Analysis

  • Chainway healthcare software will record a patient’s vital signs in line chart and transmit it to the hospital’s HIS system wirelessly.
  • Caregivers have real-time access to the patient’s medical record on Chainway mobile devices, tablets or fixed computers, so they can make the best decision for their patients.
