PC PAL's computerized growth charts offer significant advantages compared to paper based systems. They provide an exact, automatic positioning of the entered values which avoids plotting errors and saves staff time; with the data stored electronically the process of finding and retrieving the record is very quick.
Since a single paper master record is no longer required, the chart always contains the most recent observations and can easily be viewed or printed by professionals from other departments or in different locations.
The potential for all of the patient’s carers to access patient information on demand, contributes significantly to both patient safety and efficient management.
"Auxology is such a fascinating science and with the introduction of computerized growth charts we hope we can generate some further interest in the auxological follow up of children of all ages".
– Dr Lars Hagenäs, Karolinska Hospital
Some nations wish to preserve visual continuity with existing paper charts and also mandate a population reference set to use for all children. In these cases a country specific component, which is already used in that country, is available. When disease specific charts have been mandated these are also included.
