As of Monday, November 25, 2013, the EventDoc TM System entered a pivotal new phase of development as it became available for use in real-life codes at the University of Washington Medical Center. Previously, the application had only been tested in mock code environments.
In preparation for this launch, changes have been incorporated into the EventDoc TM System derived directly from feedback of volunteers who piloted the application during aforementioned mock codes. The system has also been updated to run seamlessly with the recent iOS operating system upgrades. Furthermore the application has undergone a few minor interface alterations such as the inclusion of a warning window that alerts the user when certain medications or procedures are ordered (i.e. epinephrine, defibrillation).
This newest version of EventDoc TM aims to further meet the needs of recorders during code situations, thus contributing to improved patient safety. The application has sparked a considerable amount of interest from surrounding institutions and is currently undergoing testing at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center, Boise VA Medical Center, and Madigan Army Medical Center.
