Exploiting the Advantages of Early and Comprehensive Information

Studies have proven that, regarding the admission and initial care of an incoming emergency patient, hospitals can save more than 30 minutes when using NIDA. Patient care can be optimised, and patient flows at the hospital can be managed even before the ambulance arrives.

NIDA supports processes in various ways depending on the package customers decide for:

  • Improved communication between hospital and ambulance crew
  • Transmitting the mobile rescue team protocol to the admitting hospital in PDF format
  • Faster, more efficient and better medical care for emergency patients with the appropriate team and medical devices
  • Readily available comprehensive patient information such as vital parameters, trends, rest ECGs and photos with the patient pre-registration option
  • Standardisation of processes in the case of special indications such as stroke or ACS
  • Optimised management of rooms, occupancies, medical devices and staff
  • High data quality: standardised pre-registration process and capability of transferring the mobile rescue team protocol to the digital patient file
  • Maximum flexibility due to multiple interfaces and a highly adaptable software solution

Transferring the Ambulance Protocol to the Hospital

After providing initial care at the scene, the patient has to be transferred to the hospital for further treatment. NIDA allows to digitally transfer the operation protocol of the ambulance to the admitting hospital.

By using a specific software, this protocol can easily be accessed from a pc workstation at the hospital. It can either be printed out or it can be exported as a PDF file. In doing so, the protocol can also be integrated into the patient file digitally. Processes and documentations at the hospital are supported efficiently.

 

NIDAcomfort

Convenient Patient Data Delivery to the Hospital and Easy Patient Pre-Registration

Using NIDAcomfort, hospitals can optimise their processes in the emergency department in two ways.

On the one hand, the protocol of the mobile rescue team can easily be accessed from a pc workstation at the hospital by using a specific software. It can either be printed out or it can be exported as a PDF file. In doing so, the protocol can also be integrated into the patient file digitally.

On the other hand, an efficient patient pre-registration process can be established. The mobile rescue team transfers comprehensive registration information on an emergency patient even before the ambulance arrives. This information can be displayed on NIDAarrivalboard in an anonymised way. NIDAarrivalboard is either a large display which can be positioned in the emergency department or it can be a computer monitor at the gate or at a nurses’ station. This way, the emergency team at the hospital can efficiently prepare for incoming emergencies.

 

NIDAprofessional

Optimal Preparation for the Emergency Patient

With NIDAprofessional, the hospital team receives comprehensive information on a patient even before the ambulance arrives. Emergencies can be coordinated at a very early stage and the patient receives optimum medical care with the appropriate team and medical devices. Patient data and ambulance protocols can be integrated into the HIS seamlessly.

Gaining Time with an Automated Alarm Chain

NIDAprofessional offers all NIDAcomfort modules and even goes one step further. NIDAarrivalboard shows all the relevant data about an emergency patient at a glance. This data is personalised and can be visualised on an unlimited number of pc workstations. The following critical values can be highlighted:

  • Displaying the incident
  • Prioritisation of the emergency
  • Estimated arrival time at the hospital
  • Initial diagnosis according to the DIVI protocol
  • Critical values such as circulation, GCS parameters, intubation and i-status

With NIDA, a case-related alarm chain can be initiated automatically via phone or beeper at the hospital even before the ambulance arrives. Moreover, the results of standardised queries such as in the case of patients who have suffered a cerebral stroke or cardiac infarction can be visually and acoustically announced on any number of computers. The hospital can put together the necessary equipment as well as the appropriate emergency team and start treatment without the slightest delay as soon as the patient arrives.
