Record physiological measurements digitally at the patient’s bedside with our web-based NEWS2 chart

Voice Technologies has developed digital support for the National Early Warning Score (NEWS2) system. Our web-based NEWS2 chart lets NHS staff record physiological measurements digitally at the patient’s bedside. Once the NEWS2 score is captured, it can be digitally pushed to other systems such as WardView to display the score on Digital Boards – this saves having to manually calculate and input the scores into additional systems.

Typically, once a patient is discharged from care, a paper-based NEWS2 chart will be manually scanned and stored in a patient’s record as an image. Our digital NEWS2 chart removes this time-consuming task by automatically locking and sending a digital PDF copy to a patient’s record within SCI Store.

Key features of our web-based NEWS2 system

    Our NEWS2 system allows physiological measurements to be recorded on either a PC or mobile device.

    NEWS2 uses six physiological measurements: respiratory rate; oxygen saturation; temperature; systolic blood pressure; heart rate and level of consciousness. Each scores 0–3

    The system automatically calculates the aggregate score immediately improving the accuracy of the system

    Scores can be centrally monitored at a ward, hospital, board or trust level allowing care to be directed to where it is needed

    Once a patient is discharged, the final NEWS2 record is automatically uploaded to the electronic patient record (EPR) ensuring the document is available for review if required.

Key benefits of our web-based NEWS2 system

    No client install required. System is browser-based and can be accessed on desktop and mobile devices within a ward

    Data security guaranteed

    Integration with EPR to display active ward, bed and patient information

    NEWS2 score is digitally calculated which provides 100% accuracy vs. paper-based manual calculations

    NEWS2 score is updated in real time and can be shared with other third party systems to highlight changes in the score and prioritise care

    No need for costly paper based charts to be managed and scanned into EPR

    Patient data readily accessible for analysis and reporting.
