Mobile data capture was implemented by Taranaki District Health Board (TDHB) with their Public Health Nurses in 2015. This is their summary report on the key benefits and learnings - 3 years on.
The fluidity of the Tabral software solution means that this is just the beginning for Taranaki DHB. There are many more opportunities for them to improve clinical workflows and patient safety. The application of this technology can be utilized in a variety of settings.
Leading the charge with the conversion to this mobile technology is New Zealand owned company Healthcare of New Zealand Holdings Limited (HHL). They are using this technology to provide an enhanced toolset for Registered Health Professionals at the Point of Care.
The easy to understand User interface of mobile applications reduces the need for keyboard skills. Applications that enable data to go straight into the Patient Admin Systems simply make sense.
