What can we do to reduce mortality rates in our hospitals by up to 16%?

In 2021 we successfully deployed Vitalpac into all acute medical and surgical wards at an NHS Trust. This implementation digitises the NEWS (National Early Warning Score) and has a large impact on reducing mortality rates.


Here are some of the advantages the acute trust has gained from the implementation.


Rapid Identification of Deteriorating Patients: 

  • This early intervention ensures timely and appropriate care for those in need, hastily escalating critical changes in a patient's condition.

Enhanced Reliability, Completeness and Timeliness of Observations: 

  • This has led to a comprehensive overview of patients' conditions, contributing to more informed decision-making and personalised plans of care

Eradication of Observation Errors:

  • Eliminated the chances of human errors associated with manual documentation. This saved valuable time and enhanced the overall accuracy of patient data.


The utilisation of Vitalpac in some cases has led to a reduction in hospital mortality rates by up to 16%.


This is significantly prevalent in light of the recent publication of the Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicator (SHMI) results for the period from 1 March 2022 to 28 February 2023: https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/shmi/2023-07#highlights
