If you could develop an app to enhance safe nursing care, what would it be like?

Andrea was working in the cardiac catheterization lab when a young woman undergoing a cardiac ablation started to have small seizures. The nurse noticed these symptoms and asked the physician to look at the patient. The physician asked Andrea to get his smart phone and film the seizures. This video message was sent to a neurologist, and he could tell from the video the part of the brain from which the seizures were emanating. This is one example of using technology. Does this count as safe care? Is there an app for that?
