Development of ward drip detecting device and real-time monitoring system

Project Details


The healthcare staff shortage and heavy workload has been a perpetual problem in Taiwan, although government can provide through mandatory regulations to force hospitals to hire more healthcare staff. But it will also increase the operating cost of hospitals. And as the rising operating cost of hospitals, certainly hospitals would have to save more spending or increase incoming in order to hire more healthcare staff. In this case, it still increase healthcare staff’s workload. But if we put information technology into working environment of hospitals. We can reduce healthcare staff’s workload and solve the problem of heavy workload among healthcare staff. This project is to rebuild a system for measuring usage of drips and build a real-time monitoring system. It allows healthcare staff to remotely monitor the patient’s drip usage and reducing the workload among healthcare staff’s movement to and from different wards or nursing stations. At the same time, it can also locate which ward each drip is in, making it easier for healthcare staff to find the drip that needs treatment. With this monitoring system, we can reduce the workload among healthcare staff.
