Pioneering technology to improve patient care at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital…
This week, our Pharmacy Team were announced as winners of the Acute Hospital Quality Improvement award at the inaugural Thrombosis Ireland Exemplar Awards at Thrombosis Ireland. Using Meg audit tools, an app was developed with the help of VTE Ireland, Prof. Fionnuala Ni Ainle, Dr. Barry Kevane & Dr. Tomas Breslin to audit VTE Prophylaxis efficiently.
This new, award winning, app has enabled SVPH to develop a quality of service and improve patient safety by identifying areas that are underperforming and areas that continue to improve. Auditing of VTE Prophylaxis is also reported in real time and can be acted on immediately.
It is hoped that this new technology will be used in all Irish hospitals in the long term and that all data would be collected into a National System.
