THE NEW HEALTHCARE EXPERIENCE

    HOSPITALS

    Improving patient care with digital remedies
    Samsung technology is helping UK hospitals do more, be more effective and improve the patient experience.

    • Clinicians in a connected hospital have instant access to patient information through screens, mobiles and tablets.
    • This move to a paperless system means the speed of care is improved and the risk of infections, such as Sepsis, is vastly reduced.
    • Patients are better informed too and given a clearer view on their treatments from the moment they check in, right through until they’re discharged.
    Rethinking the patient experience
    Rethinking the patient experience
    As soon as they arrive in a connected hospital, patients will notice the difference – electronic signage shows them how to get around and they can even check themselves in with a few simple taps of a tablet.

    Patients can easily see their results and treatment schedule on devices. On the ward, clinicians can also use screens to update their patients so they have a better understanding of their condition, creating a much better relationship between clinician and patient.

    The patients themselves can use the technology to contact loved ones and friends, making their stay much more personal and comfortable.
    Smarter Monitoring

    When clinicians are using tablets and mobiles, accurate observations can be taken and recorded in a much more efficient way. Real-time observations can be logged instantly, meaning trends and patterns are spotted much quicker. When clinicians have access to records there’s no need for patients to repeat their medical history every time.

    Chelsea and Westminster Hospital are already seeing the benefits of a connected, digital hospital and have saved between 50-60 lives.

    Samsung technology can also increase patient safety. Mobile devices and wearables can be used so clinicians can track where their patients are and monitor their vital signs. They can be located and immediate assistance provided, if necessary.
    Bed management

    When prescriptions are dispensed electronically, medication is ready as soon as the patient is discharged. This means patients aren’t stuck in hospital waiting to leave and the beds can quickly be made available for the next patient.
  • COMMUNITY CARE

    COMMUNITY CARE

    COMMUNITY CARE
    Samsung is enabling carers and their organisations to work smarter with mobiles and tablets. These devices coupled with the appropriate software allow access to patient records and dynamic scheduling. This creates extremely efficient working practices for carers.
    New Way of Working
    A new way of working built around the carer
    Digital transformation is a big priority because of the frustrations around today’s paper-based processes. Smarter ways of working mean carers can better schedule their daily appointments. Carers can achieve more in their day, provide better assistance to service users and feel more satisfied with their work.

    Samsung devices reduce travel time by letting carers know exactly where they need to be and the quickest route to take to get there. Once they arrive at the service user’s home, their details are readily available on the same device and new notes or records can instantly be added.
    Smoother Day
    A smoother day
    A carer’s daily schedule is affected by new patients, holidays, absences and a host of other changes. Previously, these changes had to be managed and adjusted manually. Samsung’s mobile devices and smart scheduling mean schedules are automatically updated and carers can spend more time with service users.

    When new visits are needed, smart systems integrate into a carer’s schedule dynamically based on priority, location or whatever parameters are needed. The appointments are updated immediately so carers can be rerouted to an emergency, or notified if someone no longer needs an appointment. The result is an optimised service for the carer and no missed appointments for service user.
    accurate monitoring
    More accurate monitoring and reporting
    A digital recording process eliminates errors associated with pen and paper records. Mobile devices track time and attendance so organisations know exactly where carers are and how long they spend with patients. Invoicing for companies becomes a much more efficient process too, which has significant financial benefits.
