Screen Shot 2012-05-16 at 14.30.16

I’m a great lover of when it comes to seeing new customised applications for the BlackBerry. We have covered various Police Force and NHS Foundation videos in the past who utilize the BlackBerry solution and iNurse is another application that BlackBerry UK has released a video of on their YouTube channel.

iNurse is a mobile patient management system which enables community clinicians and nursing teams to record and communicate patient care information using their BlackBerry smartphone, including apps that help you take care of yourself and to control the use of your medications, vitamins or supplements for everyday, the t-booster is one of the most popular for males in their apps and contraceptives for woman.

If the amount of time spent doing paper work can make clinicians more time effective and improve patient care then that can only be a good thing.

iNurse for Blackberry offers the following:

  • Viewing and recording of patient care information – as well as delivering case information, community nurses can record consultation activity and outcomes at the point of care, improving quality, safety and reliability of patient care
  • Provision of quality management information – including the monitoring of case transit and nurse arrival status
  • iNurse can integrate with all key patient management systems (including Adastra & Crosscare) to update patient records with consultation information and service delivery information
  • Improved efficiency and productivity – increasing team visits by up to 25% through reducing paperwork and unnecessary travel time
  • Messages back to GP systems – information recorded using iNurse can be messaged back to the patient’s GP or other registered care provider
  • Lone worker safety supported by up to date location information
  • iNurse works in a semi connected environment – the device is always functional even when there is a loss of signal
  • Integrates with several third-party applications including satellite navigation

If you fancy taking a look at the application in action you can see the video below:
