Pilot project for management of ankle trauma
In this project, we are partnering with the Orthopaedics department of the Academic Hospital in Uppsala, Sweden (Akademiska Sjukhuset)
The management of ankle trauma in an ER setting isn't always straightforward. A number of clinical signs need to be recorded, and there are some standard radiography orders that need to be written, depending on clinical signs and type of patient. If there is an actual fracture, it needs to be classified into one of the AO groups and managed accordingly. In order to implement these guidelines into iotaMed, we had to provide graphics capabilities to make the matching of an actual fracture to one of the standard types easier. In this project, we work offline, so we don't connect iotaMed to the legacy EMR system, but use it as a powerful guideline management tool. The project is ongoing.
