Taranaki DHB adds child therapy unit to mobile forms roll-out

Taranaki District Health Board has expanded the range of mobile digital forms it has rolled out for its public health nurses, adding in 10 forms commonly used in its child therapy unit.

The system is able to pre-populate forms by linking to the DHB's webPAS patient administration system and allows nurses to collect data on a mobile device. They can then send the form electronically to doctors or other clinicians for approval, and then save it to the patient's record.

Taranaki first trialled the system in June 2016 using Samsung 8-inch tablets, through which nurses can also access their email, calendars and GPS while visiting patients.
