Hospital teams are at the greatest risk when treating critically ill or injured pediatric patients. Medication dosing, drip instructions and equipment sizing are difficult even for the most skilled healthcare providers. Standard processes are often abandoned due to the extremely rapid pace of the code room (e.g. computerized physician order entry (CPOE), pharmacist verification, barcode scanning).
The Handtevy Hospital app gives ED and rapid response teams a life saving solution that can keep up with the speed of the code room. It was designed by ED physicians and nurses to improve patient safety and help fellow healthcare providers handle emergent events with ease. With Handtevy, precise medication dosages and equipment sizing information (pediatric and adult) is easily accessed all on a single screen and is personalized for each client according to their hospital formulary.
Handtevy Hospital is a SMART on FHIR application that pulls patient specific data from Epic and Cerner using FHIR APIs. It opens within the patient chart. This functionality streamlines resuscitation care, making critical treatment information readily available and allowing for real-time verification of high acuity medications, while seamlessly recording all code interventions. A time-stamped, comprehensive treatment summary is then generated to facilitate downstream notification of clinical teams and utilize as a documentation support tool.
Hospitals that treat children will quickly recognize the added safety that Handtevy provides and, just as importantly, the calm that the system brings to a chaotic code room.
