Top 3 Features of Redivus Code Blue

July 23, 2020

The chaos of a Code Blue is familiar to any medical professional who has rushed to assist with treating a patient in cardiac arrest.

Redivus Health’s Code Blue app helps calm that chaos, providing clinical decision support and better documentation. This app keeps time, gives prompts for each step of the ACLS algorithm, and documents every intervention provided.

It’s a tool designed to make your Code Blue team better. It increases confidence for providers and improves patient care.

Here are the top 3 features of the Redivus Code Blue software that clients tell us they don’t want to be without.

1) Timers

Instead of using a wristwatch or the clock in the room to track multiple details, the Redivus app has four built-in timers to keep track of:

  • Compression cycles
  • Epinephrine doses
  • Amiodarone doses
  • Total time for the code

With a tap on the app screen, you start the appropriate timer and it counts down to alert you when the compression cycle is complete or before the next dose of medication is needed.

2) Code Blue Documentation

Every intervention made for the patient during the code is tracked within the app’s simple interface – by touching a button or entering a value on a mobile phone or tablet. The app creates automated documentation that is time-stamped to the second. All of this information can be sent to the patient’s record in the EMR, so there is no need to re-enter information or transcribe scribbled notes.

When the code is complete, this documentation can be sent to the EMR so that other areas of the hospital have immediate access to it.

3) Analytics

The Redivus Code Blue software also provides a robust analytics dashboard that can be accessed through a web browser. The platform tracks all users of the Redivus app within a hospital and can provide valuable insights about patient care and outcomes for tracking and analyzing quality measures.

The analytics dashboard displays several important interventions where the earlier the initiation, the better outcome a patient is likely to have. These include the time to first compression, time to first shock, and time to first epinephrine:

Another piece of data Redivus presents is called compression fraction. This is the amount of time the team is providing CPR while the patient’s heart is stopped. High compression fractions are also shown to improve patient outcomes. All of this information is available immediately after the code has ended for bedside debriefing, code blue committee review, quality reviews, morbidity and mortality reviews, and other reporting.

Redivus Code Blue makes the process of treating, documenting and evaluating cardiac arrest care much more efficient, streamlined and accurate.
