Abstract [en]

Introduction: Health care at home could be a challenge for both the persons in need of health care at home and the health care professions when the person's individual needs in health care at home have to be met. There is a need for different technical solutions in order to create opportunities for persons in need of health care to stay in their own homes and get health care. The mobile distances-spanning technology (MDST) could come into use to support the health care at home for the future. Methods and Materials: The aim of this presentation is to describe the usefulness of MDST in health care at home. During a project MDST have been tested as an addition in health care at home. The district nurses used 11 different mobile equipments in home care. During the home visits they filled out a form (n=154) about which equipment they used when caring for persons in home care. Results: The district nurses did totally 184 home visits and in 154 cases they used the equipments during the test period. The most frequently used equipment was the mobile computer with access to the patient record (73%) and the access to the patient record was reported as useful at home. The district nurses noted importance to use the bladder scanner even if it was not used so often (11%). The digital camera was used (8%) and was reported as complicated but useful when documenting the healing process of wounds. When the electronic stethoscope was used (7%) some reported a disturbing sound that hampered the assessment. Conclusion: There are several equipments that could be useful and it is important to test and identify the equipments that are most suitable for use in home care.
