Pennine Acute Hospital NHS Foundation Trust recently purchased 7 of the technology packages from My Improvement Network which consisted of 7 Large Touch Screen Units and 7 Tablet Devices.
The equipment was purchased as a means of improving the overall patient experience throughout their network of hospitals covering 4 locations. One of the key indicators of the project was to carry out an evaluation around falls.
Base line falls data was already available and therefore we were able to start to measure the effectiveness of the system in contributing towards a reduction in falls. The system is able to produce information around its usage and how long it is being used for.
