The Hands-on Automated Nursing Data System (HANDS) is a standardized plan of care method in which the patient’s plan is updated at every nurse hand-off allowing the interdisciplinary team to track the story about care and progress toward desired outcomes in a standardized format across time and units.

EVL is collaborating with UIC’s College of Nursing and College of Engineering on the visual component of the HANDS system. Current goals include:
  • Improving the original HANDS user interface for more potential users such as doctors and therapists
  • investigating and understanding the needs of prospective users, and adding additional functionality to HANDS to address the needs of those users
  • Adding visualization to HANDS existing reports in an effort to empower current and future users to do more data exploration and visual analytics
