TENSSION: A Tool for the Medical Patient Follow-Up
This paper presents the tool, called “TENSSION”. This tool allows an exhaustive follow-up of a patient’s stay in the centre to be made, storing each of the admissions, the Services through which he or she passed and a list of daily annotations containing the most important data, to carry out statistical studies with the data from the centre in a more general way and thus have information about patient functioning and evolution and, in turn, have a means to generate alerts when possible complications arise.
