KEWS is a software product which is deployed in hospital settings at point-of-care. It is configured as a Client:Server system. Its principal function is to make Patient Observation Records a central element within the Health Information System, informing accurate, responsive clinical care and supporting better Patient outcomes. It allows the caregiver, such as a Nurse, to complete Patient observations in a digitally-supported mode through the use of a Tablet touchscreen which is WiFi-linked to the Central Station of the Ward and also to the Server.
This Tablet at the point-of-care and the Central Station display screen may be considered as Clients of the Server software. Off-ward access to the system may also be provided to authorised users such as Clinical Consultants, Doctors and the Director of Nursing, via Client software on their devices.
The medically-approved software is configured to reflect the standard observation chart in use in the particular hospital and the Graphical User Interface is designed to ease accurate, efficient data-entry and review. It is configured with a Bar-Code reader, for safety and efficiency when identifying Patients via their bar-coded wrist-band.
