Guardian™ is the first step towards a paper-light maternity department. All clinical data is captured at the bedside via the K2MS touchscreen and stored direct as part of the patient record, ready for audit and reporting such as CNST.
Guardian™ provides the full electronic capture of patient information during childbirth, including: CTG’s, partograms, all labour events, outcome information, fetal blood sampling results and cord blood gas results direct from the blood gas analyser. This information can be shown in real time to enhance communication within and outside the delivery suite to improve patient care and reduce human error. The high integrity of Guardian™ data means that the audit reports it generates can become one of the main driving forces behind your governance quality approach to care. Guardian™ has been purposefully developed to a standard sufficient to withstand the rigors of the medical litigation process.
Guardian™ incorporates an intelligent electronic Chalkboard which is called the SaFERR Births Board. SaFERR stands for, Situation and Features, Evaluation, Risks and Requirements and presents a dynamic real-time update of care for all women on Labour Ward. Importantly, all information presented on the SaFERR Births Board has been automatically transmitted from each of the bedside clinical notes. As well as communicating the Situation and Features of each labour, it also presents the specific patients risks and future care planning information. We believe that the SaFERR Births Board, in its own right, represents a major risk reduction technology.
