HiNZ 2017: Christchurch sees 20pc reduction in length of stay with Cortex app

Christchurch Hospital has seen a huge reduction in length of stay in some of its general medical and surgical wards since it expanded the use of the locally developed Cortex mobile application, its creators say.

Cortex is a care coordination platform that provides documentation of clinical notes, team and individual task management, electronic ordering of diagnostic tests, notification of results availability and direct access to the results on iPads and iPhones at the bedside.
