English abstract:
We developed a mobile ward round system based on openEHR for the use on smartphones and tablet computers using the Android platform which integrates and uses NFC to explore new ways of computer interaction, data processing and workflows in the medical world. Based on the automatic patient identification via NFC using the mobile device, physicians can easily view recent ward round results and edit/add information without manually selecting the patient from a list. The application mainly shows new ideas and possibilities to improve medical workflows and usability and how mobile devices can make use of existing frameworks and backend services. Relying on the openEHR standard, physicians are not limited to a certain ward round document anymore but can define their own ward round templates by means of the openEHR templates and archetypes.
