What our Apps can accomplish for Healthcare Professionals
Our user base is primarily comprised of Consultants, Doctors, Nurses and Medical Students, but why do such Health Care Professionals choose our Apps?
Answer: Doctot's Product Range possesses the ability to:
Time is undoubtedly of extreme importance when it comes to the optimal treatment of health conditions.
For example, following a stroke, there is effectively a three-hour window in which it is possible to deliver clot busting treatment. However, in practical terms, there is often little more than 30 treatment minutes remaining by the time a patient is admitted.
Doctot's Stroke App, which promotes Clinical Diagnosis Best Practice (as well as helping to provide greater treatment strategies and prevent liability), can be performed by medical professionals in 4 minutes. This is approximately 16 minutes of brain-saving time faster than the traditional, paper-format stroke evaluation test, which can take up to 20 minutes to administer.
As can be seen in the above example, the established paper-format scales that help in the diagnosis and prognostication of ailments are, in real terms, overly cumbersome and time-consuming to utilise in a clinical setting.
Doctot's Clinical Diagnosis Apps, with their unified, automatic and easy-to-use scale systems, provide a genuine solution to this problem, thus benefiting a HCP's overall productivity levels.
Current, specific and trustworthy medical information is required by all Health Care Professionals to make informed decisions. However, due to the sheer quantity of information that is available to modern-day physicians, an information burden is being placed upon them.
As a result, tools that condense Evidence Based Information into an easily and quickly understood form have become something of a necessity. This is what Doctot, a World Leader in the development of Clinical Rating Scales and Guidelines on the Apple App Store, provide through their medically validated App range.
According to a widely known Institute of Medicine report, between 44,000 and 98,000 Americans die each year in U.S. hospitals due to preventable medical errors. To help reduce the likelihood of such errors occurring in not only the U.S but around the world, accurate reference information at the point of care is required.
Due to their artificial intelligence, Doctot Apps can remove human error in relation to scale-related calculations. Overall test accuracy is also improved, as is the reliability of the test score results.
The innovative gesture-driven controls that are at the heart of Doctot's range of Apps provide a much greater level of speed, stability and decipherability than pre-existing paper-format diagnostic tools could ever do.
Thanks to this, a greater number of patients can potentially be seen by HCP's, as critical time is saved.
These two factors are undoubtedly of ever increasing importance in today's fast-moving world. People prefer everything to be no further away than their fingertips, and Healthcare Practitioners are no exception.
According to an SDI Mobile and Social Media Study, the majority of physicians (two-thirds of whom were using smartphones as far back as 2009; California HealthCare Foundation) with a mobile device use it for both accessing relevant medical information and for enhancing patient care.
Doctot's Apps, which are available on tremendously popular Mobile devices, facilitate such actions like no other communication medium.
According to a past study by the Annals of Family Medicine, primary care physicians spend nearly half of their work day upon constraints such as follow-ups and documentation preparation, which is keeping them out of the examination room. In addition, an American Hospital Association commissioned report states paperwork adds a minimum of 30 minutes to every hour of provided patient care.
These activities obviously limit the amount of time that physicians have to diagnose and treat their patients, which is quite an issue considering 1 billion visits were made to physicians' offices in the U.S in 2014 alone.
So to increase productivity inside the examination room, fast-acting work tools are necessary, as HCP's simply do not always have the time to read through 20 kg text books or updated 50 page articles.
Because of such, Doctot's Apps, which are renowned for their efficiency, clarity, reliability and precision, are ideal for improving a physician's daily clinical workflow.
