Secure Medical Decisions

An easy-to-use decision support system to streamline patient handling, make quick assessments and help medical professionals manage and treat a wide range of patient groups

Introducing RETTS

Trusted decision support across the entire emergency care chain

Rapid Emergency Triage and Treatment System (RETTS) has been trusted by leading Nordic healthcare providers since 2005. Using a scientifically validated method to assess and sort patients’ needs, it helps organisations standardise their emergency care process – from primary care to ambulance to emergency ward.

So they can…
Improve communication
Standardise the flow of information, increase cross-organizational communication and help teams work together with confidence.
Increase efficiency
Control costs, accelerate care and reduce variations in assessments that lead to confusion and waste time.
Keep patients safe
Improve handovers, allocate resources more effectively and build confidence with patients through consistent care.

How does RETTS work?

RETTS identifies the urgency to the doctor of each patient by combining vital signs with a structured symptoms check. This is represented in our platform by a series of cards – ranging from blue to red. This enables users to make secure triage decisions in three simple steps…

Assess the patient’s vital signs

Input the patient’s vital signs and age. Make a note of the colour the patient’s condition matches.

Use the RETTS symptom cards

Search RETTS’ Emergency Signs and Symptoms (ESS) cards for the best match. Work from top to bottom (highest urgency to lowest) to get the second part of the risk assessment.

Determine the best action

Combine vital signs with ESS, and select the highest urgency level of the two. This ensures a more complete assessment of the patient, ensuring the right level of care for each patient.

This enables…
Ambulance operators
to determine priority, how to manage the patient and where to take them. So individuals get the right care, and you avoid overloading Emergency Departments.
ER nurses
to determine which patients require more immediate treatment, how to monitor and treat patients, reduce stress and improve patient flows.
Primary healthcare nurses
to provide the right level of care and whether patients should be sent to ER, ultimately reducing uncertainty and empowering nurses.

Why RETTS is different

The missing piece of the puzzle

Most triage systems base the triage on either vital signs or symptoms. But this leaves a gap that can lead to greater medical risk. In fact, research shows that…

45% of patients are at risk of being undertriaged

That’s why we combine vital signs and symptoms in our system. Factoring in ESS enables decision makers to catch otherwise undetected problems and avoid delaying care.
