For all at K2, 2017 finished as it had begun with so many exciting developments in the pipeline for the company and the ever expanding product portfolio. With the exciting progression of both Athena™ and Guardian™ reaching new heights, it was fantastic to also end the year on another high note as the team saw a further successful go-live with an installation at the prestigious Portland Hospital in central London.
The Portland Hospital is the largest private children’s hospital in the UK, indeed the only private hospital in the UK dedicated solely to the healthcare of women and children. Placing their emphasis firmly on providing exceptional care, The Portland Hospital is internationally recognised as a Centre for Excellence for the quality of service it is proud to provide.
To further enhance the outstanding levels of care The Portland delivers they needed to update their maternity system. K2 were delighted that Guardian™ was chosen to support their busy labour ward and provide full electronic clinical record capture capabilities, as well as a complete monitoring solution for labour and delivery. A completely paperless system, Guardian™ offers full electronic capture of all patient data contemporaneously and at the point of care on a single, seamless database. All notes such as CTGs, partograms, test results and outcome information can be shown in real-time and can be viewed from within, or outside, the delivery suite to enhance communication, reduce human error and improve patient care.
Delivering 1600 babies a year, K2 are delighted to be supporting the staff, patients and practices at this busy hospital by providing them with a risk management solution offering exceptional efficiency, accessibility and traceability. Not only able to provide comprehensive patient data capture and enhanced monitoring capabilities, Guardian™ is invaluable at the point of audit and query. Improving access to information for clinicians and healthcare givers is crucial for effective patient care, and enhanced communication, and Guardian™ can provide all records and data requests to authorised personnel at the touch of a button, saving valuable clinical resource and allowing midwives to spend more time with their mothers.
K2 are delighted to be supporting The Portland Hospital with their mission to provide the highest quality care and extend a very warm welcome to all the Portland team. We know that Guardian™ will provide exceptional data collection, monitoring and communication capabilities to support their work and we look forward to working alongside them as they continue to promote patient safety and deliver outstanding care.
