PANDAi: a new look for PANDA!

PANDAi is a new version of our safe nursing care tool

Originally developed for NHS Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital (GOSH), PANDA is used for paediatric safe nursing care assessment by several UK Trusts. You can find out more about it at GOSH PANDA: safe nursing care for children.

But PANDA has been around for a while now and is in need of a new look and feel. And it needs to take advantage of new technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) and work on mobile devices.

PANDAi on a mobile device could look like this…

The design challenge for mobile devices is to simplify the interface to minimise the data that needs to be displayed and reducing the scope for errors or mistyping.

Take a look at the latest design in the video below and let our product manager Tim Allard know what you think about th design at

Other candidate features we are considering include…

Besides upgrading the underlying technology to Microsoft .Net 6, other features we are considering include:

Making use of historical PANDA and patient profile data to save nursing input effort.

This could include automating the generation of the patient nursing needs using AI and based on planned admission data for the patient from the patient systems. This would save input time and present a summary for the nursing manager to review. Changes could be made to the recommendations based on a patient’s actual condition and observed needs. This would also improve the consistency of usage of PANDAi across users, wards and hospitals.

Alerts, Monitoring and Handling Staffing Level Issues.

With automation would come the ability to ‘manage by exception’ and trigger alerts when (and only when) safe nursing thresholds are not met.

Integrating with other local Systems.

PANDA already integrates with patient Administrative Systems (PAS) for patient movements within the hospital. It also integrates with Allocate’s SafeCare system to aggregate paediatric ward nursing needs with other wards to create a hospital-wide resourcing view. PANDAi can be further integrated with other NHS Trust-wide patient, resourcing, reporting and dashboard systems.
