“It’s all about bridging the gap between volume of data and time length of patient encounter”
With patient medical information ‘Piling Up’ over time and length of patient encounter going down, it become impossible for care providers at point-of-care re-reading the whole of a patient’s medical record at each encounter. The big issue is how to provide a quick, short and meaningful overview of patient medical information, relevant for the co-ordination of care of the current encounter.
“The art of presenting the least that provides the most”
Smart Presentation of medical data provides the information mostly needed to improve quality of care and prevention of errors. We deem this a quick snapshot of the patient medical profile. However when drill-down is needed, the system provides the tools to show the entire collection of information in different logical views. This feature applies to textual information as well as to images, annotated templates and scanned documents.
Upon selecting a patient, what the care-providers get first is a quick overview summary of the patient medical profile in terms of all patients previous encounters.
Smart Presentation provides various tools to view patient medical information
Smart Presentation Key Features
- Drilling – Drill to very specific information by expanding the hierarchical presentation structure
- View by Groups - View encounter information by groups of logical units
- Filter – Filter patient history by data types to view information like TEST only, DIAGNOSIS only, TREATMENTS only, MEDICATION only, etc.
- History - View history of any single data item (TEST, DIGANOSIS, etc.)
- Alerts – View all pending alerts associated with patient history regarding, allergies, special findings, medication in use, significant operations, etc.
- Images – View timeline of images and other non-textual information associated with patient history
- View by Protocols – Use predefined protocol to view combined history of related data items associated with a specific problem. For Glaucoma in example, it might be combined history information of ‘IOP’, ‘Disc & C/D’ and ‘Med in use’.
