Research reveals that for every hour physicians provide direct clinical face time to patients, approximately two additional hours are consumed by documentation and desk work during the clinic day. Keeping a track of all activities has always been troublesome.
In collaboration with the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health at the Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, AKDN Digital Health Resource Centre developed and implemented Clinical Rounds, a mobile application integrated with a web portal to help facilitate health care providers in recording their presence for various events, engagements and activities.
The app is a cross-platform mobile application, which helps health care workers log their time and various interventions including attendance for patient care meetings, grand rounds, in-patient rounds, and consultation clinics. The app helps record participation and is a hassle-free way to ensure timely entries. It also linked with a mobile application, One45, which helps complete evaluations without having to browse for them.
The application aims to improve patient experience at the Hospital with the help of a reporting panel for all the physicians attending consultation clinics.
