To deliver exceptional patient care, HealthTrack provides electronic access to all patient information. HealthTrack is a complete central repository of clinical and patient data. To achieve this, HealthTrack communicates with:
- clinical devices such as Echo machines, ECG machines, stress ECG machines, PACS servers
- Hospital systems using protocols such as HL/7, xml, BDT/GDT, csv, etc
- External Gateways including HealthLink, ArgusConnect, MedicalObjects, Promedicus, etc
The data from these disparate sources are unified to deliver an easy to access complete patient record. Reviewing more information faster allows you to make a more informed decision when diagnosing patients.
As a complete central repository of clinical and patient data, HealthTrack is the ideal database for research.
Integrated Prescription Module
Embedded in the Prescription Module are some unique features that are designed to improve a doctor’s workflow, save time and ensure patient care. Doctors, for example, have the ability to create a ‘favourites list’ of the drugs that they most commonly prescribe. This reduces the need to scroll through extensive lists of medication in order to find the correct one thus facilitating fast and accurate prescribing.
HealthTrack also allows users to easily build scripts electronically ensuring improved patient care by automatically flagging potential adverse reactions to drug interactions on 3 levels.
- Drug to drug
- Drug to allergy
- Drug to condition
In addition to flagging potential adverse reactions, HealthTrack’s Prescription Module allows doctors to view all current information available on each drug in the MIMS database including recommended dose, active ingredient, and CMI (consumer medical information). Having this information readily available ensures the best and most informed decision in prescribing patients.
The use of the integrated MIMS data for prescribing, means that not only are your prescriptions faster and more accurate, you can cross correlate medication data with any clinical result. HealthTrack’s interactions module further minimises many of the risks associated with prescriptions.
Research, Pathology and Efficiency
With HealthTrack you will have the ability to expand and broaden your research capability. All data is captured at an ‘atomic’ level to provide doctors with the widest range of research opportunities possible. This unique approach to data capture allows for extensive data mining and filtering across all stored results. Using inclusion and exclusion criteria, both specific patient demographic lists and summaries of patient numbers can be created. Approval of pathology reports is a key capability of HealthTrack. This feature can significantly improve your productivity, with some doctors reporting an increase of up to 30% in their efficiency. HealthTrack displays the reference ranges supplied by the pathology laboratory, and then colour codes ‘abnormal’ results by the degree of variation. Abnormal results can be viewed in isolation to improve efficiency of pathology analysis and reporting. A patient’s results can also be compared over time and viewed in table or graph format.
- matching clinical trial inclusion criteria
- matching eligibility criteria (e.g. PBS)
- not meeting therapeutic targets
All Pathology results are downloaded electronically in an easy to read layout including the colour coding of abnormal results. Detailed results can also be viewed to display all results, not just the common ones. All results can be compared. Furthermore, these results can be integrated with an echo machine’s DICOM database, so the results are automatically downloaded into the individual fields. Other systems save the test results as free text or PDFs, which makes it difficult to research and compare individual results over time. HealthTrack imports the data at the atomic (individual measurement) level, that delivers comparison and research potential of the data.
HealthTrack’s unique architecture allows individual results within a test to be identified and saved, while most other systems only allow diagnostic test result to be imported and saved in PIT format. As new medical evidence emerges, so does the approach to treatment and targets. HealthTrack can enhance comparison and research opportunities for most test results stored in HealthTrack. Data mining of stored results can occur to summarise numbers fitting the entered parameters or create lists of patients for potential recall.
Encrypted Electronic Report Delivery
Patient information security and confidentiality is guaranteed with our sophisticated encrypted electronic report delivery system. HealthTrack sends encrypted reports and data to referring GP’s and a variety of other external sources such as Medicare and Hospital PAS systems based on their preferences via HL7 interfaces. HealthTrack also supports electronic document exchange standards such as Argus, HealthLink, Promedicus, Medical Objects and MMex.
Similarly, HealthTrack accepts data from a variety of external sources and can be configured to automatically import results and reports from other clinical systems or HL7 feeds, directly into patient files without the need for staff to manually print, scan and import documents. Furthermore, a variety of images are also supported within HealthTrack including scanned images, documents, Dicom Images and Patient photographs
As a result of all these individual features, HealthTrack is a fully electronic system designed to achieve a completely paperless environment.
