RNOH Goes Live with Interneuron’s PEWS Observations

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (www.rnoh.nhs.uk) has now gone live with a Paediatric Early Warning Scores (PEWS) solution, provided by Interneuron.

Interneuron’s Observation module has been live for 9 months and is successfully delivering results in line with the NEWS2 (National Early Warning Scores) standard. This further development of the Paediatric component enhances the ability of RNOH to deliver quality care at the bedside for all its patients. The browser-based application provides device independence at a much more attractive price point and allows the Trust to continue using their current devices (iPads).

The Observation module is just the first component of our strategy to deliver an Open Standards, Open Source Modular Electronic Care Record. Working in partnership with RNOH has enabled the creation of clinically led solutions to a range of patient focussed activities. (For full details on this, see RNOH signs partnership with Interneuron). In addition, RNOH and Interneuron will be making this new technology available to the whole NHS. Other Trusts will now not only be able to freely download, test and implement the software developed, they will also be able to get support from Interneuron by using a procurement Framework provided by RNOH for this very purpose.

Paul Fish, CNO and Deputy CEO at RNOH says that “This completes the rollout of our digital patient observations implementation and builds on our adult NEWS 2 rollout. Now, all patients at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital have early warning scores calculated, at risk patients are identified and further actions, such as the sepsis protocol, can be taken”

Saroj Patel, Executive Director, Chief Digital & Innovation Officer says that “This is the first step on our open platform digital strategy and will be followed by several other nurse facing applications. Our aim is to greatly increase our digital inpatient data levels and accuracy, in order to continue to improve quality of care”

About Interneuron: Interneuron is a different kind of health + care software company.
