|Opis:||We encounter documenting in nursing care daily. The medical personnel who spend most of their time with the patient often find it time-consuming and excessive. Although we are aware of the importance of documenting, we often do this in the fastest possible way due to the lack of time and personnel. Thus, we record only the data that we assess as important subjectively. Time constraints, as the consequence of the lack of a sufficient quantity of personnel, thus force us into daily, inconsistent documentation.
In the master's thesis, we focused on documenting in healthcare. We opted for chronic dialysis treatment, which is not a classic form of treatment that we witness at the departments, but a specific form of outpatient treatment where rapidly changing situations and measures occur. So far, we have not had developed electronic documentation in this area. Currently, paper documentation has been the only way to record information, which represents a major shortcoming, especially in the traceability of medical personnel who have prescribed or performed an individual measure.
Due to some starting points in practice, we decided to present the functional specifications of the system as a basis for the development of an electronic documentation program.
We have taken the first step in developing a program in the future that would allow us to monitor patients closely and, thus, simplify and, above all, eliminate errors that occur when using paper documentation as a result of human error. We have visually reinforced the whole, which enables us a more transparent way and, thus, offers faster recording of information.
We pointed out the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats which we perceived in designing the system. We focused mainly on the design of the system which would make sense to introduce and use in practice actively.|
