KEWS300 demonstrates its prowess in an Acute Medical Admission Unit

In what was described as the busiest Winter rush ever seen by the hospital KEWS300 was effortlessly adopted by the staff of St Luke’s AMAU as they switched to paperless observation recording, charting and review. The system was configured to accommodate a number of different workflows, all of which supported the NEWS recording and escalation protocols. This included accommodating the special requirements of isolation wards.

KEWS300 selected for site-wide deployment by Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Clydebank, Scotland

Following a markedly successful pilot during the year the KEWS300 system was selected as a site-wide solution in NHS Scotland’s Golden Jubilee National Hospital. The system was seamlessly integrated with a variety of other standard elements of the NHSS eHealth Architecture and was also electronically interfaced with the equipment in use on the ward. The pilot demonstrated its ability to optimally support some of the hospital’s key goals, such as the dramatic reduction of errors associated with the complex National Early Warning Score (NEWS) system, the enhancement of compliance with escalation protocols and the provision of valuable workflow support for nurses, ward managers and doctors.
