Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) has gone live with Brigid, TPP’s new clinician app.
Developed by SystmOne users, Brigid provides complete patient record access, a full suite of observations functionality, customisable patient lists and more.
Pierce Devine, Mental Health Support Worker at CNWL said Brigid has proven to make daily tasks quick and simple for staff.
“We would normally write the data onto a paper NEWS2 chart.
“But now being able to input data into an iPad for it to be automatically uploaded to the patient record is so much more efficient.” He also adds that Brigid ensures patient safety by automatically flagging up which patients need to be seen or escalated.”
As part of SystmOne, information input into the app is added directly to a patient’s EHR, making the data easily accessible to other healthcare staff throughout a patient’s care journey.
Brigid also aligns with functionality within TPP’s patient app, Airmid, to improve communication and encourage patients to manage elements of their own care.
CNWL went live with Brigid in September on a mental health inpatient ward. It was initially planned as a three-week pilot, during which time they would perform two observation rounds per day.
One round would be done on paper and the other on Brigid each day to compare the two methods.
Within two days clinicians on the ward were solely using Brigid. Their ward round time had already reduced from four hours to 45 minutes, translating to a saving of around six hours of clinical time per day.
Ben Lawman, Design and Analysis Lead at TPP said: “We are pleased that Brigid is already supporting staff by making their day-to-day tasks easier.
“The app makes it simple to track a patient’s health and care and removes many of the paper-based steps that are often time-consuming for clinicians.
“TPP is proud to make these real differences to the experience of staff and patients and will continue to develop innovative solutions to support their needs.”
