CareFlow Vitals is a mobile app and secure data storage system we use to quickly and easily record patient’s vital statistics. This data is then instantly accessible to all relevant doctors, nurses or other specialists. Clinical staff can easily monitor patients, record observations and assessments as well as escalate concerns. CareFlow Vitals has supported us in delivering our quality improvement and patient safety culture.

Our staff recently featured in a video produced by Nursing Times and System C (the CareFlow Vitals supplier).

Our compliance with venous thromboembolism assessments and sepsis screening has improved since we implemented specialist modules.

Improvements in recording venous thromboembolism assessments

We implemented the CareFlow Vitals module for venous thromboembolism in April 2017. Our venous thromboembolism assessments have been consistently above 95% for the last 12 months.

Improvements in recording sepsis screening assessments

Sepsis screening, introduced in CareFlow Vitals in May 2018, has remained at 100% for the last three consecutive months. It is very rewarding for our staff to see the care they deliver reflected in these demonstrable outputs.
