SONSIEL: Holistic Acuity, a Hackathon Product with Nathanael Rosenberg, Charge Nurse at Froedtert Hospital & Samu Mhlabib, Founder & CEO at NurseBrain
The last SONSIEL Hackathon pushed forward a great tool! This episode features two nurse innovators, the developers of Holistic Acuity!
This week’s guests on the SONSIEL Podcast are Nathan Rosenberg and Samu Mhlambi! Last November, they teamed up at SONSIEL’s Hackathon and launched Holistic Acuity, a virtual tool that takes in different factors and calculates a score to determine the patient’s true acuity to determine the non-medical acuity besides taking into account the medical acuity of each individual. They talk about the process of coming together and bringing different practices and knowledge to the table to create the acuity scale and questionnaire. They also share how SONSIEL provided a network and mentorship that helped them during the process. Samu and Nathan enthuse about the opportunities and possibilities that nursing innovation has at the moment, and they encourage nurses to trust their instinct and voice their ideas to develop them and bring innovation to their practice.
