Bliksund EWA – Emergency Worker Assistant, is an electronic Patient Care Reporting solution for ambulance services and a real-time live view board for the emergency room providing updated patient status throughout the emergency care chain. The solution secures accurate and complete recording of patient information, effective flow of communication, and improved patient care and safety.
The solution is developed in close cooperation with healthcare professionals – providing a day-to-day assistant adapted to meet the tough working environments of emergency and healthcare professionals.
The system consists of a tablet-based app for use in ambulances, a live-view display in emergency departments, a medical record server for secure storage of patient data, as well as integration with emergency operations centres.
EWA is a state-of-the-art electronic patient care reporting application with a user-friendly interface. EWA accommodates a fully touch-based user experience built on smart tiles, with built-in suggestions for structured data input. Only essential information is displayed on the smart tiles, providing emergency professionals with relevant information about the patient and mission at all times.
The solution is easily navigated through horizontal scrolling, avoiding time-consuming menu navigation. The highly configurable application adapts the necessary data fields depending on the mission type. EWA is hardware agnostic.
Integration with medical devices makes it easy to get vital parameters, ECG and other relevant data directly into the record. This enables personnel to focus on patient care while the medical chart is automatically updated.
Assignment information comes directly from the dispatch centre / medical operations centre and is registered and sent to the server in real-time. The app has full offline support.
