Multi-Clinic Setup
The application's underlying technology platform makes it a highly modular, flexible and scalable solution. As such, the application is designed to allow multiple Clinic setups with each clinic locally administered and managed independently with their own data protected while providing a Collated Data View of all data from each clinic to provide "live" statistics on the treatment of patients.

Cohesion Clinical Collaboration Suite has extensive features including the following;

 

Collated Multi-Clinic Setup
The system has an option to allow multiple Clinic setups with each clinic  locally administered and managed independently with their own data protected. The system can be used as a clinic-wide networked installation allowing multiple users access at multiple consulting rooms or offices. A "Super-Clinic" setup provides a Collated Data View which can collate all data from each clinic to provide  "live" overall statistics on the treatment of patients across all clinics.

 

User Logins
Users can login to their specific Clinic with each clinic locally administered and managed independently with their own data protected. Permissioned users can also login to the "Super-Clinic" and collate all data from each clinic to provide "live" overall statistics on the treatment of patients.

 

User Accounts
User Accounts allow users to access and manage their User Profiles including passwords and contact details as well as personal and system communications via a Messaging Centre. The system contains an integrated message centre to allow communication between Clinics and any National Centre, thus improving relationships and informing users of important notices. User Permissions allowing different levels of access can be set by the System Admin.

 


QuickFind
A quick and versatile search facility for finding specific Patients, Registers, Trials or Groups is provided through a central search panel helps users find patient(s) of interest fast.

 


Home
The homepage is an informational display where system status updates, product features and access to Medical Newsfeeds provide users with useful background and latest information display.

 


Clinic
The Clinic page provides users with a useful tool for "Clinic Management View" to gain insight into the Operational Efficiency and Resource Utilisation of their Clinic relating to Patients, Appointments and Prescribed Treatments.


Patients
A specific patient can be found from the dropdown selection or using an A-Z Name Search. An optional advanced search facility provides useful criteria to further filter the list of patients displayed. Search results displays the number of patients and a list of all patients found with a link to  their Patient Record. Search results can be printed and/or saved as an exported excel sheet. New patients are added using the "Add New" feature.

 

Patient Record
Patient data is displayed as Personal, Summary, Detailed and Clinical Histories. It records data for the Diagnosis of Disease Patterns, Co-Morbidity, Genetics, Sociography, Treatments (such as Drugs, Topicals, PhotoTherapies, RadioTherapies, ChemoTherapies, ConComittant Medications, Surgery), Biometrics, Blood, Imaging, Nutrition and Research.

 

Appointments
Allows users to search an Appointments Listings and diplay, print or save the results. "Manage Review" allows users manage alerts and review periods. "Quick PDS" allows users to quickly print a batch of Patient Data Sheets (PDS) for a specific clinic date. "Clinic Calendar" displays appointments as a calendar for easier viewing. Clinic Dates allows users to quickly add new appointments or print the PDS for those attending the clinic for that day. Users can also add new appointments using the "Add New" feature.

 

Transfers
Users can easily transfer or refer Patient Records between any clinic created within the multi-clinic setup. "Ghost Patients" can be created at any clinic in order to allow studies and research details to retain copies of patient record details. The Transfers section allows a "joined-up" approach to the clinical management of Patient Records. Users can easily transfer/refer patients between clinics  and back again for consultations. "Ghost Patients" can be created to allow clinics to retain copies of patient record details.


Studies
Users are able to study and analyse collated data. Socio-Demographics examines data relating to patient age ranges, gender, postcode and other social variables. Genetic Studies collates information on ethnic origins and family inheritance factors. Studies of Conditions examines descriptions of diagnosis and comorbidty. Treatment Studies analyses the current and historical treatments assigned to patients.

 

Research
Users can assign patients to their own groups, add DNA Consent as well as National Registers, research trials and clinical trials. New Research Registers, Clinical Trials and Research Trials are added via the Global Admin Area. Patients can be assigned to research projects via the Admin Area.

 

Audits
Users can perform regular reports on specific criteria in order to report on and manage the usage of resources such as the usage of treatment drugs over specific periods.

 

Incidents
This page allows users to report specific incidents relating to the treatment of patients as an "Internal Incident" and share this "note" on concerns with other users within the same clinic or shared with all other clinics in a multiclinic setup.

 

Reports
An extensive range of standard reports is available to the user. Clicking the Report Title will automatically generate a PDF containing the report data. Batch Reports allows users wanting to print reports for many patients at the same time.

 

Resources

Our Data-Entry system specifically designed to enance realtime usage of Clinical Information System by clinic users. With our specialised data-entry modules the system can be extended to include user-specific logins for Body Metrics Assessments, Medical Images and Office Staff. Using these data entry modules can lead to increased functionality of the system and provide more detailed and pertinent information to users, thus increasing the overall efficiency of the application - the more data in, the more information out. These options can make the data entry process more efficient and less stressful for users.

 

Clinician Login - "QuickConsult"
The software application is specifically designed to be a clinically-usable tool for doctor-patient consultations. As such, a QuickConsult system has been developed to allow clinicians to "consult with a patient" within a 2-minute "processing time" to input/update your minimal patient dataset.

 

Nurse Login
The Nurse Login is a plug-in module that enables Clinical Staff to login and enter directly and electronically patient biometric assessment data. This provides an efficient and easy paper-less approach to capturing standard and regular information on the patient at each clinic visit.

 

Images Login
The Images Login is a plug-in module that enables the Medical Photographer, Radiographer or other Imaging personnel, to perform batch uploads of images from their own images folder and into the Psoriasis Database. In this way, this module allows a fast and easy way to populate the database with any clinical image data. The imaging section of the database then allows users to examine and compare images, timelines of how body locations change over time with disease and treatments. The images view then allows users to attach any medical image to a patient's timeline, add tags/notes for these images and be able to search and scroll through images on this timeline history.

 

Office Login
The Office Login is a plug-in module that enables Office Staff to access the database without viewing full clinical details. This enables staff to update patient information, add other data and manage and schedule clinic visits and patient appointments. It is possible that the database could be integrated into current clinic management systems, such as TrackCare or PMS in order that tasks are not replicated unnecessarily, though this would require further investigation.

 

Data Connectivity and Integration
A very important aspect of our software system is to in ensure the application's integration with existing systems used by the organisation in order to have users share and use data with full efficiency. Cohesion Medical is also able to integrate to any specific software used by a clinic, such as software to store test reports for patients, then making those reports available within Cohesion Medical's software is a real key efficient use of the new software. Cohesion Medical's software is designed with Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) which allows compatibility and communication with currently installed general software such Patient Management Systems (PMS), SCI Store and other appointments systems such as TrakCare. Any legacy system data can also be integrated into the system by importing and migrating data from other clinics and older databases.

Cohesion Medical's software applications are based on proven web-based client-server technology framework. In the general case, the application is installed on a web hosting server running over a network and multiple users can access it via an appropriate web-browser installed on their computer.

 

Application Design
Cohesion Medical's software applications uses our proprietary "Vibe Engine" technology and thus has a generic platform making it a highly modular, flexible and scalable solution. The software application is designed as n-tier scalable solutions based on proven web-based client-server technology framework.

 

Infrastructure Overview
The system can be used flexibly as a single desktop installation or as a clinic-wide networked installation, allowing multiple users access at multiple consulting rooms or offices. In the latter case, the whole system can be run from the current server infrastructure using permissioned firewall access for clinics on the NHS network. Our proven system software has been operational on NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde network server for 1000+ patients for over four years.

 

Server Requirements
In the general case, the application is installed on a web hosting server running over a network and multiple users can access it via an appropriate web-browser installed on their computer. At the server-level, the software application runs on Microsoft IIS installed on any Windows Servers (2003, 2007, 2008+) with Microsoft SQL Server providing data storage. Frontend technology is delivered via (X)HTML and JavaScript while backend functionality is provided by Microsoft .Net 2.0, .Net 4.0 and WCF.

 

Client Requirements
At the user-level, the database is accessible to any normal desktop/laptop/tablet based machine with any Operating System (such as Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7+, MacOS, Linux etc.) and a modern graphical browser installed (such as Firefox10+, Chrome3+, IE8 etc).

 

Server Applications Manager
We have developed a proprietary "Cohesion Manager" platform which serves as a Server Applications Manager in order that there is greater monitoring and management of server services to ensure a higher level of service in terms of database delivery to users.
