Why should clinicians use Med App?

Our vision is to improving clinical confidence and wellbeing through access to clinical information. Here are just a few ways we do this:

  • Access orientation info before you arrive on site - minimise potential errors associated with starting a new job (while reducing stress & improving wellbeing!)

  • Easy to access content - on-demand access to policies, procedures & guidelines.

  • Digital phone directory - call departments & services directly from your mobile to avoid lengthy delays sitting on switch.

  • Track annual CPD requirements - log attendance & track of CPDs in one location.

During our pilot phase of implementations, we collect data to show time savings benefits for hospitals. A Time in Motion (TIM) study is conducted by first identifying 5 pieces of content available on both Med App and via standard hospital avenues (e.g. the intranet). 5 clinicians are then timed as the search for each piece of content.

Med App is an offline-accessible, mobile app for accessing clinical and hospital guidelines, communication, tracking education and training.

How can clinicians use it?

How Med App was born

  • Fresh in the early days of his internship and armed with a 120 page orientation handbook, Rob was asked to order a CT scan for his patient.

  • He made the imaging request and went about the rest of his duties, only to arrive back the next day to find no progress had been made.

  • Poring through his handbook, he realised that he hadn’t correctly followed procedure: the electronic imaging request was meant to be accompanied by a signed and faxed consent form.

  • This one mistake delayed the patient’s journey by an entire day and cost the health system ~ $2,000.

  • Realising the logistical issues with carrying around half a ream of paper, the idea for Med App was born!
