Abstract [en]

The emergency departments in Region Östergötland use pen and paper to a large extent when recording emergency care procedures and measurements. During treatment the patient should be the main focus. Because of this, recording of measurements done could be delayed or in worst case forgotten during stressful situations.

The proposal of this project is the development of a prototype that tries to make the administrative work a passive procedure rather than an active one. The system developed uses a Raspberry Pi, along with Node-Red, which connects predefined patient data and medical records, with the clinical staff tending the patient. All these connections are initiated by mainly using RFID technology.

The conclusion made with the developed system is that it should unload the staff with the recording of data and that it helps make a data logging a more passive work than today’s used methods. Along with a process that is easier to operate, the time spent on administrative work could be reduced with the proposed system.
