Hospitals and other medical institutions have a variety of potential emergency scenarios that they need to be prepared for. One of those emergencies is a missing patient, often called a “code yellow.” Code yellow emergencies can be complex to manage quickly and efficiently due to the amount of searching that may be necessary.
A digital code yellow response solution can help by streamlining the launching and managing of such an emergency scenario in order simplify the entire process.
SimplyCast presents the idea of the Code Yellow use case, a complete solution for managing missing patient emergencies.
Steps to Improve the Code Yellow Response
SimplyCast anticipated the need for medical institutions to create a streamlined code yellow solution to ensure that missing patients are found as quickly as possible.
When it comes to the ways a digital solution can help, we identified three key opportunities:
Step 1 – Alerting Staff
When a patient has gone missing, staff need to be notified as quickly as possible to be on the lookout and to start searching. A digital solution can help by allowing for pre-defined plans that can simplify the launching of such alerts to hospital staff.
Step 2 – Search Tracking
When a search for a missing patient is ongoing, there needs to be an easy way for staff to send updates of areas that have been searched and whether they have found the patient. A system that can handle dynamic responses can allow for these status updates to be tracked automatically.
Step 3 – Search Monitoring
A central dashboard that can be customized to fit the needs of any given institution ensures that the status of all staff responses can be easily assessed, allowing administrators to manage the code yellow emergency through one centralized location.
Those are the core opportunities we identified where a digital solution can improve the code yellow response, and where we can help.
