ITS Campus, ITS News – In this digital era, humans often make new breakthroughs so that the workload they bear becomes lighter, as well as in the health sector. This desire to help the digitization process in the health sector seems to have encouraged the students of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) to create a web-based application called APIK PICU dr Soetomo.

Kevin Haffizzana, a student of Information Systems Department, introduced his innovation as a solution to facilitate the work of the nursing profession in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the dr Soetomo Regional General Hospital (RSUD) Surabaya. This website-based application allows users to store patient data, and automatically diagnose the necessary treatment actions based on symptoms and complaints entered in the search field.

At first, Kevin shared his concern about the long and manual health management process. From recording data to taking action, nurses are required to read and match patient data with thick and varied hospital manuals. Not to mention the limited number of books so that it cannot cover the need for more nurses.

Seeing this, Kevin believes that this long and complicated stage can be shortened through the digitization process. “That’s why we created a kind of data bank from the book so that medical officers don’t have to open the pages one by one,” he said.

In terms of usage, this website-based application developed by students from Surabaya is quite easy to use. Initially, medical personnel were expected to log in using their respective accounts. After that, users can fill in inpatient data along with any symptoms and complaints experienced.

If all data has been entered, the system will perform a search to find out some of the diagnoses experienced by the patient and the good actions taken by the nurse. What is special is that all the search processes are sourced from the guidebook of RSUD Dr. Soetomo whose recipe has been used for generations.

Furthermore, according to Kevin, this application also provides a patient data storage facility that can be printed at any time. Users can access the portal offline, either through mobile phones or laptops. Another advantage that can be felt is the lack of media needed, with only one computer or server to store data, the application can be run. The log-in feature is specifically provided to ensure the data contained in it is safe because not everyone can access it. “Work has become more flexible and practical,” he said.

Although it took about two months to work on this innovation, Kevin said he was happy with the response from the PICU RSUD dr Soetomo who welcomed the launch of this technology with joy. If needed, Kevin is also willing to improve or update the features in his application.

This is in line with his hope that the innovations he developed can be expanded to other features so that their use is more complex, for example in terms of recording medical records or inventories. “If possible, all manual processes must be digitized so that everyone does not need to be complicated,” he concluded.
