Few RCTs on the effect of computer applications in intensive care have been published. This study presents an RCT measuring time savings and score values after introduction of a computer based scoring tool in an intensive care unit. A tablet PC with a standalone scoring application for TISS, SAPS2 and Apache 2 was supplied. We measured considerable time savings and higher score values when the computer application is used.
