Healthcare is among one of the most rapidly changing industries in the world. Thanks to technological and medical advancements, this industry has seen major improvements in nursing practices and quality of care. Through faster diagnosis, precise therapies and hands-on care, we have also seen positive changes in patient health outcomes. 

 

Patients aren’t the only ones seeing changes. Professionals in the industry also reap the benefits of technological advancements through increased efficiency and improved workflow. In the past, nurses faced many challenges that lead to burnout and reduced competency. However, technology has provided significant enhancements that eliminate these challenges and make nursing safer while improving overall well-being.  

 

From preventative healthcare to a nurse cabinet, the following are some technological advancements that have made nursing a better profession.

 

Enhanced communication

 

Communication is a vital aspect of healthcare, as it allows individuals to stay in touch. Through the use of smartphones and other technologies, healthcare providers are able to receive alarms, messages and calls in real time from patients and other professionals. 

 

Nurses are now more in touch with one another as well as their patients, which allows them to provide more hands-on care. 

 

Electronic records

 

Most healthcare institutions have switched to electronic files for storing and managing patients' information. With the touch of a button, nurses can access a patients’ medical history, list of allergies, current treatments and more. They make it easy to facilitate the sharing and collaboration between labs and other offices. Electronic records save a lot of time so healthcare professionals can focus on what matters most - the patient

 

Predictive to preventative healthcare

 

The healthcare industry generates a large amount of data on a daily basis. Technological advancements have made it easier for healthcare providers to assess data and predict future patient ailments based on previous data. These predictions are seen as ‘the next big thing’ in the industry. With this technology, medical professionals can provide patients with insight to future illnesses by assessing past and present lifestyle habits, genetics, environment, medications and more. With the predictions, patients can take preventative measures which could help them save in  medical expenses or even future life threatening issues.  

 

Nurse server

 

A nurse server is a nurse cabinet designed to help nurses store and organize medical equipment in patients' rooms. Nurses spend less time looking for nurse gadgets because they are steps away from the patient's room. This allows nurses to focus on the outcomes of their patients and provide better care.

 

FlowCARE designs a nurse cabinet that fits your environment and suits your needs. Our three main designs are: pull-out, pass through and tilt down which maximize the use of vertical storage space in your facility. They also minimize patient intrusions by making use of corridor space and reduce patient’s exposure to contaminants.


 

Our mission at FlowCARE is to provide better patient care for a low cost. Our team helps fulfill this mission by providing the healthcare industry with the knowledge and expertise needed to consult, plan, design, engineer, fabricate and deliver a storage solution tailored to your space and needs.
