Abstract

Neonatal units, and especially the sections devoted to intensive care require an individualized medical prescription, based on body weight and gestational age making them among the hospital settings where treatment errors are most likely to occur. These errors may harm patients and their families, as well as increase the duration of hospital stay and its costs. Tools such as Sabichão have sought, over the last years, to aid clinical decision-making to reduce clinical error. However, with the increased use and dissemination of mobile platforms, it's now possible and essential to bring the available assistance closer to the health providers and their practice. This paper describes a Framework that seeks to present itself as a more efficient and ubiquitous alternative to an existing Clinical decision support system.
