The Complications application provides a real-time capability that combines the surveillance of multiple information feeds with a range of complication algorithms. When activated the complication algorithm generates a Complication Alert which is supported by a pre-agreed Complication Response. Complication Specific Algorithms and a Complication Response are easily configured using a “decision tree” format or a check list.
Complication alerts can be triggered both automatically via the active Patient Safety System and manually by the clinician. In both cases the clinician gains access to the pre-configured Complication Response. Furthermore, the alert is communicated to all active participants within the Clinician Alert System.
