Smart technology unlocks new insights to drive innovation in patient care

In partnership with Alcidion, NHS Fife and University Hospital Monklands have embraced using smart technology to unlock new insights and drive innovation in patient care and safety.

As the first Alcidion client in Scotland, NHS Fife has realised significant achievements in improving patient safety and care delivery in the deployment of Alcidion’s Patientrack solution (now known as Miya Observations and Miya Assessments), embracing the bedside observation capture and risk screening assessment tools. By implementing Miya Observations and Assessments, NHS Fife has seen a 70% reduction in cardiac arrests, 70k observation sets captured per month, more than 34M risk assessments documented and has Peripheral venous Catheter (PVC) documentation at 95% . In response to COVID-19, the use of the solution was extended to all remaining acute areas across six community hospitals (including one with three mental health wards); two mental health hospitals and one learning disabilities hospital.

At the University Hospital Monklands in Lanarkshire, trials of Alcidion’s Patientrack solution have shown a higher than 98% success rate in alerting clinicians of patients in need of urgent care. Implementing real time monitoring and hand-held devices has allowed the nursing teams time to focus on overall quality of care.
