Online Indicators

Feedback and review mechanism that enables you to identify trends in performance and quickly find patients who have not achieved specific acute care processes
  • Provides minute-by-minute feedback on key indicators of care quality
  • Boxes are colour-coded for every patient to show whether an indicator has been achieved - QI concerns are instantly flagged
  • Drill down to see more information about each KI

Use the online indicators tool to:

  • Track patient care and QI concerns in real time
  • Encourage regular review of patient data and prospective 'real time' data entry
  • Support data validation
