Session outline: Royal Surrey NHS FT are delivering remote ward rounds in their 24-bed ICU, where coronavirus patients are being cared for, using mobile device secured using Imprivata Mobile Device Access (MDA). The smartphones enable just one doctor linked remotely to colleagues to do ward rounds. Security is an important consideration and MDA ensures the digital identity of the clinician is used to access the device easily and efficiently whilst still ensuring high security standards. In order to access the devices, a clinician simply taps their badge to unlock the device and then accesses the necessary applications using single sign-on making things much easier when wearing PPE on the ward.
The solution is also helping relatives to safely stay in touch with their loved ones in hospital. Royal Surrey were already looking at using the technology for ‘virtual’ consultations, but the COVID-19 outbreak accelerated it. Patients are logged in to the same device as used in ward rounds by a clinician using their badge, they can then contact family or friends and speak to them. Imprivata digital identity solutions are already being successfully used in the hospital so the mobile solution was able to be validated and tested in two weeks.
