Abstract: Technological advances in mobile phones make them appealing to support nursing care at the point of treatment, especially by combining the easy-of-use, mobility and wireless communications. Novel capabilities, such as picture capturing, enlarge the applications scope. In this work, we present the HOPE system to facilitate nursing care documentation, by leveraging on standard off-the-shelf mobile phones. The proposed system moves a substantial part of the work usually deferred and performed at desktop computers to the moment and place of care. In addition, health professionals can document the clinical cases with photos, using the mobile phone built-in camera, which is being applied in diabetic foot consultation. Basic support for wound measurement is available. The information acquired is integrated in the patient’s Electronic Health Record and can be shared using the mobile devices or the workstations. The proposed system is in pilot use at two Portuguese hospitals targeting inpatien t care and diabetic foot consulting. (More)
