What is it about?

Patient sign-out is considered the most dangerous procedure in the practice of medicine. With up to 80 percent of serious medical errors involving miscommunication during handoffs, we have designed AirSignout specifically for iOS 7 to decrease vulnerability and provide high reliability to the physician sign out process.

App Store Description

Patient sign-out is considered the most dangerous procedure in the practice of medicine. With up to 80 percent of serious medical errors involving miscommunication during handoffs, we have designed AirSignout specifically for iOS 7 to decrease vulnerability and provide high reliability to the physician sign out process.

AirSignout is a practical quality assurance tool intended to help standardize handoff communication and not to be used as part of the medical record. It's functionality and clean UI provide a secure and convenient means to manage beds and record patient information involving key issues and safety concerns, time stamped notes, and clinical photographs relevant to patient safety.

Sign-out data can be securely exported from AirSignout via email, iMessage or AirDrop using a password protected 128 bit encryption, providing information that can be reviewed as a check-list & communication tool during the sign out process. Your entire list can be securely transferred to your entire team at once using AirDrop. This means a list can be continually updated or revised without having to re-enter data.

AirSignout is the Ultimate solution for standardizing the sign-out process. It can be used in any scenario involving the need for a secure and safe sign out.

It can work as follows using intern sign out as an example:

Intern A is on call. As soon as she starts her call the ED calls for an admission. Intern A gets called for a rapid response and has a floor call at the same time.

Intern A opens her app on her iOS device, enters her password (which decrypts the App’s database and allows for entry into the app) quickly enters info for ED patient which might include patient name and MRN. She responds to a rapid response and helps stabilize a patient subsequently entering pertinent patient info into app including bed number and safety concerns. In the meantime she had already responded to a call for a Tylenol order and entered this information as well.

Now fast forward to end of shift. Intern A has admitted 6 patients and has had 20 floor calls (some for the same patient) and 2 rapid responses. Now it's time to sign out to Intern B. Phew...

Intern A easily shares the list to Intern B using AirDrop after being prompted to provide a password to encrypt the data.

Intern B now has a sign-out sheet that can be used for a number of purposes.

1 He can email himself an encrypted PDF and print a copy for his floor team to be used on rounds to ensure appropriate transition of care and address any safety concerns without involving the medical record as this is "a sign-out sheet" or share it to his entire team using AirDrop.

2 He can use it for his on call shift (since its the weekend) and patients safety concerns and responsibilities can be discussed with other interns on call.

3 I'll let you think of this one :-)

Of course these scenario can be different. This app can be used by any medical subspecialty in any scenario when a secure patient "hand-off" is necessary.
