Columna Flow Clinical Tasking
Optimising hospital workflows to reduce the pressure in emergency departments.
Today's clinicians are at dire risk of burnout. Too many tasks, interruptions, and a lack of overview of what is most urgent.
Clinical Tasking is a mobile communication platform that gives an accurate overview of patients and the ability to coordinate tasks between colleagues. The platform improves patient safety and reduces errors and interruptions by streamlining communication.
Clinical Tasking has been developed and tested in close collaboration with clinicians in the Emergency Department at Aalborg University Hospital in Denmark.

Clinical Tasking enables clinicians to digitally confer about diagnoses or treatment plans - rather than disturbing them with an unnecessary page or call. This makes clinicians work closer together with patients and improves collaboration across departments. The result is shorter patient waiting times and better overviews of tasks for both physicians and nurses.
In the Emergency Department at Aalborg University Hospital, the mobile platform has contributed to fewer unnecessary interruptions and more efficient collaboration between on-call residents and coordinating senior physicians.
Clinical Tasking offers an accurate overview of available clinicians, their workload, and patient assessment status. An improved overview and access to care members around each patient make it easier to coordinate tasks between colleagues directly.
With one platform for the entire hospital, you streamline communication, reduce errors and decrease stress levels from carrying multiple devices.
In the Emergency Department at Aalborg University Hospital, nurses experience an improved workflow. With the mobile platform always at hand, they can be available for new patients while attending to other tasks such as cleaning, documenting, and more.
”I can perform meaningful tasks while waiting for a new patient and at the same time be available for new patients without being physically present,” says a Nurse in the Emergency Department at Aalborg University Hospital.
Additionally, coordinating physicians experience their job as less stressful.
