Bottom Line: Accurate assessment and documentation of skin conditions facilitate communication among care providers and are critical to effective prevention and mitigation of pressure ulcer.SAPPIRE demonstrates (1) data documentation conforming to the relevant terminology standards, (2) data exchange using Continuity of Care Records (CCR) standard and (3) smart display of patient data relevant to risk parameters to promote accurate pressure ulcer risk assessment with the Braden scale.Challenges associated standardizing assessment data faced during this development and the approaches that SAPPIRE took to overcome them are described.

ABSTRACT
Accurate assessment and documentation of skin conditions facilitate communication among care providers and are critical to effective prevention and mitigation of pressure ulcer. We report developing a prototype mobile system called SAPPIRE (Skin Assessment for Pressure Ulcer Prevention, an Integrated Recording Environment) for an android device to assist nurses with skin assessment and documentation at bedside. SAPPIRE demonstrates (1) data documentation conforming to the relevant terminology standards, (2) data exchange using Continuity of Care Records (CCR) standard and (3) smart display of patient data relevant to risk parameters to promote accurate pressure ulcer risk assessment with the Braden scale. Challenges associated standardizing assessment data faced during this development and the approaches that SAPPIRE took to overcome them are described.

Mentions: The team first generated a list of functions that need to be implemented in four general steps of using this application for skin assessment: (1) application set-up (importing the local data items to document and mapping them to standardized terminologies, importing patient cases to work on, and associating assessment data to the Braden scale parameters), (2) conducting skin assessment and documenting data using the application, (3) completing pressure ulcer risk assessment with the Braden scale based on the prior assessment, and (4) exporting the generated data in an interchangeable format. Once the specific functions were identified, the team produced mock up screens with detailed annotations on the system functions (Figure 1). The prototype SAPPIRE was tested with 5 patient scenarios. The functional errors and inefficiencies identified during the testing process were corrected and improved.
