Columna Flow Clinical Tasking is a mobile solution developed to ensure safe and efficient patient flow for physicians and residents in hospital departments. It offers an automated preview of relevant patient information based on EMR data and enables smart communication between clinicians.
The solution provides a clear overview of patients, their condition, and the current workload among physicians, making it easier to coordinate, allocate, and prioritise patients. Tasks and responsibilities are reflected in real-time and are always tied to a patient. This ensures fewer communication errors, a shorter diagnosing time, and no duplicate registration.
Safer patient flows
Columna Flow Clinical Tasking is developed to offer an easy overview of the patient flow in hospital departments. The solution offers physicians and residents a full overview of own patients and their current condition, enabling them to better decide on which patient to attend next.
By connecting all tasks to a patient and combining them in one solution, physicians are never unsure about the patient in context. For each case, physicians and residents can easily access further patient related information through integration with the electronic patient record and get direct notifications when new examination results are ready. This decreases the overall diagnosing time and significantly improves patient safety.
Smart and secure communication
Columna Flow Clinical Tasking offers a secure video and messaging platform, enabling physicians and residents to easily communicate about a patient with link to the relevant EMR information. Using asynchronous messaging, clinicians can always consult and confer with the attending physicians or special functions. This entails fewer communication errors and equips clinicians with a tool to support the right decisions, fast.
Using a check-in functionality, the mobile solution provides a live overview of all physicians and clinical staff on duty as well as information about current availability. This way clinicians can quickly identity the right colleague to contact and easily access contact information.
More efficient coordination
Columna Flow promotes inter-departmental communication, which makes the solution a vital element in the coordination and treatment of patients in hospital departments. With a mobile solution physicians and residents get the overall picture of workload and patient flow gathered in one place.
By providing each physician with an overview of own patients and tasks, Columna Flow Clinical Tasking makes it easier to coordinate, prioritise, and allocate patients based on workload and patient information. This also reduces stress on physicians and eases patient-forward care.
Columna Flow Clinical Tasking enables physicians and residents to get new examination results directly on their phones and access patient data on the fly. This moves the handling of tasks from the office to the scrub pocket, resulting in more time for direct, patient care.
