A smartphone app for efficient healthcare professionals

Bringing local know-how to clinicians' pockets
  • Local information for local healthcare professionals
  • Native iOS (iPhone & iPad) and Android apps launching in 3 NHS trusts in August 2013
  • App runs on cached content (fast navigation)
" An app with local up-to-date content for each NHS Trust "
  • Up-to-date database specific to each Trust
  • Pilot app with view to further roll-out
  • App contains no end-user or patient information
  • Designed to help clinicians get things done in their hospital. Not what to do but how to do it
  • Content like a junior doctors handbook: How do I organise an urgent investigation out-of-hours? Where is the nearest ECG machine? When is the canteen open? How do the bleeps work?
  • The app is named in honour of Dr Ignaz Semmelweis, the hand-washing pioneer. Good hand hygiene is vital for all areas of healthcare.
The platform was developed initially by Health Education Yorkshire and Humber. 
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS FT staff then configured the app to include information local to their trust. 
The STH app which is available for Apple, Android and Windows Phone users contains the following sections:      
·         Antimicrobial guidelines                                                     
·         Anticoagulation guidelines                                                
·         Care of the Dying guidance                                                     
·         Respiratory guidelines
 It also contains a simple contacts list for the ward phone numbers.
Do you and your Trust use this app?

    Free Parking Software for Town Houses, Condominiums, and Businesses Solves Parking Problems
    Searching for a parking space is such as frustrating routine activity for lots of people in cities all over the world. This search is burning over a million barrels of oil of the world each day. There are also 4-parking spaces every vehicle in the US and almost all streets are most of the time, empty, which leads to urban environments that are ironically doing far more to accommodate the vehicles than people. As the global population continuously urbanize, without a convenience-driven and well-planned retreat from cars, these sort of parking problems will worsen. software is the first step in the right decision. It involves using low-cost sensors, mobile phone-enabled, and real time data collection automated payment systems enabling people to reserve parking in advance or predict accurately where they can find a spot. When deployed as a system, free parking software thereby reduces car emissions in the urban centers by means of reducing the necessity for the people to circle the city blocks needlessly searching for parking. Furthermore, it permits the cities to manage their parking supply carefully.
    This free parking software is now being developed in many different states and cities around the United States and some other countries. For instance, in LA, smart meters and low-power sensors are tracking the occupancy of parking spaces across the Hollywood district, one of the most congested areas. The users will be able to access this occupancy data in order to determine the availability of the spots and then pay for them with their mobile phones. Other than the environmental benefits and lending convenience, free parking software is improving the utilization of the current parking, which lead to greater revenue for parking owners.
    These programs will be able to make great differences on a neighborhood level, but more widespread development and deployment is necessary for free parking software to change the cities and to contribute to the transportation sector pollution reductions greenhouse gas. One problem is that there are no citywide solutions all over the fragmented private and public parking providers. The occupancy data has a tendency to have many owners and is not accessible or standardized in a way that may enable software developers to turn into user-friendly applications. Thereby, individual smart parking efforts are so far successful locally, but uncoordinated, and operates in their own entrepreneurial or bureaucratic vacuums without a need to take gap between current free parking software and more widespread transportation system planning is an enormous missed opportunity for the cities to reduce the transportation related emissions.
    Moreover, free parking software has been hindered by a lack of insight into the complete benefits of this software, specifically when compared to the cost of building extra parking spaces. Lack of collaboration between communities with the parking software programs, as well as lack of coordination between hardware providers, municipalities, and developers is also contributing to the slower adoption of smart parking. Nevertheless, it is possible to overcome all these issues. Cities will be able further accelerate these advantages by means of updating the land use and building codes policies to reflect the reduced need for parking.
