DHCRC sponsored scholar and Swinburne University of Technology researcher, Dr Nalika Ulapane presented a plenary session at the 2022 Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS).
Titled ‘Designing Mobile Clinical Decision Support Systems: Lessons from the CLOTS Study‘, the keynote discussed the development and impact of the CLOTS App – a point of care decision support tool for clinicians that helps prevent surgery related blood clots.
Two to thirteen in every 1000 patients admitted for elective surgical procedures in Australia develop clots in their veins (thromboembolism) post-surgery and in 10% of cases this can be fatal. The CLOTS App has supported a 79% relative risk reduction in clotting events in a hospital setting resulting in improved patient safety and health outcomes.
The CLOTS App was designed through a DHCRC project partnership led by Associate Professor Kate Burbury from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Professor Nilmini Wickramasinghe from the Swinburne University of Technology.
