The development of Kids’ Fracture Tool started five years ago in the largest tertiary level pediatric hospital in Finland, Helsinki Children’s Hospital, to improve the quality of children’s fracture care.
Kids’ Fracture Tool has been developed in collaboration with BCB Medical to be part of the hospital information system. It has become an electronic fracture treatment tool in our unit, and it is in daily use.
Kids’ Fracture Tool contains our current treatment practices of different children’s fractures. It guides the treating physician to perform an appropriate clinical examination and to register all the relevant findings, including a correct diagnosis. Example radiographs with treatment guidelines such as treatment method, imaging studies and follow-up are included in the register.
