There is a major issue in medical centres in Malaysia: the shared responsibility and communication between nurses at the bedside care and conversation with the physicians after-hours. Inexperience nurses may, sometimes, overlook patients' critical symptoms that indicate immediate medical care and cause the circumstance deteriorate. Therefore, mutual blaming practices are common if there is a medical error. The design of hands-free assessment and feedback with wearable technologies is welcomed in healthcare sector. Hence, the paper presents a pilot design that investigates how a wearable technology can help in daily patient care in an innovative way that enhance the nurses and physicians' communication. The paper reviewed the current practices and technologies, followed by the design of the transformed flow, hardware and apps used with technical limitations, pilot evaluation and future work.
