Title: Wireless Technology improves processes in Oulu University Hospital


1
Wireless Technology improves processes in Oulu
University Hospital
  • Heli Rissanen, Oulu University Hospital
  • Department of Surgery and Intensive Care

2
Northern Ostrobothnia Hospital District
  • Northernmost of the five university hospital
    districts in Finland, covering allmost 50 of
    Finland
  • 375 000 inhabitants within NOHD
  • 800 000 inhabitants within the special health
    care region
  • Three hospitals Oulu University Hospital,
    Oulaskangas Hospital and Visala Hospital
  • 13 accountable units
  • 5800 employees
  • 112 000 patients, 65 000 treatment periods,
    400 000 outpatient visits per year

3
Oulu University Hospital
  • Opened in 1972
  • Responsible for organizing specialized medical
    care for the whole of northern Finland
  • 1000 beds
  • Biggest unit Department of surgery and intensive
    care
  • 10 000 operations, 35 000 outpatient visits

4
Present IT in OUH
  • Electronic patient records (EPR), web based
  • Electronic (filmless) radiology 2005
  • Electronic referral and reply 2005
  • Web based laboratory system
  • Lan Wlan
  • Laptops on clinical ward rounds

5
Goals from hospitals point of view
  • Develop and pilot concept of wireless hospital
  • Enhance processes in hospital
  • Technology only improves the quality and
    profitability of healthcare services if new
    procedures are simultaneously developed in as
    innovative as the products themselves

6
Wireless Technology in Hospital Operation
Management
  • Wireless data transfer
  • Wireless positioning Patients, staff and
    equipment
  • Wireless sensor technology
  • Employees safety equipment

7
Workpagages
  • WP1 Logisticanalysis of chosen processes
  • WP2 Pre-piloting in the policlinic of urology,
    surgery ward, operating rooms
  • WP3 Using wireless technology in hospital
    operations PDA mobile phone
  • WP4 Networkplanning for new hospital
  • WP5 Piloting
  • WP6 Optimization of the processes

8
First steps towards wireless hospital
  • Processanalyses (urology endoprosthesis)
  • To processcharts phase, responsibility, form of
    information and time spent in each phase
  • Charts very accurate ? Disadvantages
  • Re-engineering of processes
  • How we want to take advantage of wireless
    environment?
  • Which applications really add value?

9
Pre-Piloting in policlinic of urology
  • 15 patients a day
  • Tag with the serial number to the patient
  • In some units BS in every room, in other units
    (radiology, labs, etc) only one BS
  • Through tracking system we can follow, where the
    patient is

10
Layout
11
Interfaces integration
- HIS
-EPR -Other sys- tems
Interfaces
Tracking system
12
Integration with tracking and EPR
13
Employees safety tool
  • Push button of the tag ? alarm, nurse call,
    nearest person, etc
  • Information through Wlan to database, which is
    part of the WHAP
  • Called person will have message to her/his mobile
    phone
  • Time delay 30 sec.

14
PDA as a user interface
  • PC in nurses/doctors pocket
  • Web browser
  • Web based system ? No need for any separate
    interface
  • Nurses can write down patients data directly to
    the EPR
  • e.g. temperature and medication
  • Bed-side reporting in real time!

15
Advantages
  • Economical, technological and quality
  • No hand-registration ? minimal error rate
    better quality of data
  • Registration in real time
  • Multiple registration diminishes
  • Improved processes and quality of care
  • Measure first ? then improve
  • Health care performances and outcomes still tough
    to measure!
  • Most reliable way Time spent in each phase

16
Advantages
  • Medical staff knows, where their patients are
  • We can plan our operations more accurately
  • Registration in new open care building is in one
    place only ? Effects on layout
  • Employees safety improves
  • Way to get information faster and easier!

17
Potential savings due to the EPR and wireless
environment
18
Endoprothesis study
  • Time spent to Non-value-add phases

19
Time spent for material management in a hospital
ward (26 beds)
20
... And challenges
  • Incompatibility of medical devices and software
  • Messy interval during the shift from old to new
    technology
  • Time, money and patience needed
  • Technological advantages sometimes hard to
    define...
  • Benefits are not in the same place where costs
    are caused and will become visible later
  • Technology does never replace management/leadershi
    p!!!!
