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 cardiac or other serious medical emergency, often called a “code blue.” Code blue emergencies are life or death situations that have to be responded to as soon as humanly possible. The faster the response time, the more likely the patient will survive.
A digital code blue response solution can help this response by streamlining the launching and managing of code blue scenarios in order simplify the entire process.
SimplyCast presents the idea of the Code Blue use case, a complete solution for serious medical emergencies.
Steps to Improve the Code Blue Response
SimplyCast anticipated the need for medical institutions to create a streamlined code blue solution to ensure that serious medical emergencies are handled as quickly as possible, and impact to patients is minimized wherever possible.
When it comes to the ways a digital solution can help make the code blue communication process more efficient, we identified three key opportunities.
Step 1 – Alerting Staff
When a medical emergency arises, the first thing that needs to be done is sending an alert to the staff on the ward, ensuring they are aware and able to assist where needed with the cardiac arrest.
Step 2 – Recall if Necessary
A cardiac arrest emergency can happen at any time. This means that the right staff for the job might not be currently on-site. A button can be clicked to trigger a message sent to any on-call staff to get a responding specialist or support staff as quickly as possible.
Step 3 – Reports and Responses
A central dashboard that can be customized to fit the needs of any given medical facility ensures that the status of all staff responses can be easily assessed, allowing administrators to manage the code blue emergency through one centralized location.
Those are the core opportunities we identified where a digital solution can improve the code blue response, and where SimplyCast and automation can help.
