The Trauma App

 

The innovative and novel app has been designed in collaboration with clinicians within the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow. The initial phases of Emergency Department (ED) care are critical to outcome and dependant on effective team working to deliver multiple often simultaneous critical interventions. New tools are required to integrate and align health care delivery within the complex systems within the ED. The development of the major trauma app will support clinicians to achieve three key aims:

1- Robust data collection to enable forensic analysis of clinical care processes
2- Cognitive aids to support and prompt clinicians during trauma care delivery
3- Provision of a reliable framework to deliver care aligned to the highest clinical standards to reduce variability

Daysix, the industry partner, has immersed themselves attending courses and simulation events developing a deep understanding of trauma care. NHS GG&C eHealth provided a critical role as the civic partner providing initial funding in conjunction with the Digital Health Institute, in addition to technical specialist advice and guidance on integration standards. Further funding secured from the STN will enable the app to be developed, integrated and deployed within the network. We are looking forward to demonstrating the impact of the app on clinical care by enhancing teams ability to deliver excellent care.
