Effective Clinical Usability

We understand how recent advances in medical research have opened up a world of new patient treatment options for those working in Specialist Medical Clinics.

 

A wide-range of methods, pharamaceuticals and biologics are now available to consultants for treating patients with complex conditions and diseases. This provides the possibility of radically improving the lives of many patients in many different specialities.

 

Clinical Effectiveness and Efficiency

Cohesion Medical software is specifically designed to enhance clinical decision-making and improve the effectiveness of patient treatment outcomes. The clinic's consultants have been able to use the application for in-clinic purposes including fast data-entry consultations with patients and immediate data history viewing with graphical information display and many easy to use features. In this manner, the software provides full legal regulatory requirements for electronic record-keeping of treatments.

 

Furthermore, as a cost-management tool, the software facilitates the cost-effectiveness analysis of pharmaceuticals by pharmacists. As such, the software is designed to reduce the usage of expensive treatments where no clinical benefit is shown, which in some cases may save significant amounts on increasingly restricted treatment budgets.


The software also reduces expensive and time/resource-consuming administration tasks required for freedom of information requests and clinical audits at clinics, healthboards and national levels. In addition, staff can use the application at any time, regardless of location. Satellite clinic administration of patient records which was considerable is therefore virtually eliminated. This has lowered the hospital administration costs considerably.

 

User Workflow - The Patient Record

A main focus of development has been to make the Patient Record more "clinically-usable" for interactive clinic patient consultations and not just as a passive 'reference' system.  As such the Patient Record has been engineered to display a single integrated page with a summary, clinical history with embedded graphs and manage edit controls.

  • Personal Info - Manage Personal Information
  • Summary - Dashboard display summarising the latest patient data
  • Clinical History - Tracks all historical patient data

  • Genetics - Family history
  • Diagnosis - Patterns of Disease, Locations and Special Sites.
  • Co-Morbidity - Other diseases and conditions.
  • Outcome Scores - Assessment & Monitoring of Outcome Scores.
  • Body Metrics - Biometrics information and calculation of BMI.
  • Blood Results - Blood Results and blood pressure.
  • Imaging - Photographs, scans, X-Rays etc.
  • Demo/Sociography - Social, relationship and employment background.
  • Nutrition - Eating journal for Healthy Eating Index (HEI)
  • Activity - Activity measures

Treatment Plans

Treatment Plans - Drugs, Topicals, PhotoTherapies, Concomitant Medicine.

 

QuickConsult

Has been developed to allow clinicians to "consult with a patient" within a 2-minute "processing time" to input/update your minimal patient dataset.

 

Graphs

Graphs shows outcome graphs for Treatments, Outcome Scores, DLQI, BMI, Smoking and Alcohol data. The 'Time-Period' graph is a master zoom control for the display period on all graphs.

 

Images

Allows users to attach any medical photos for a patient to a timeline, add tags/notes for these images and be able to search and scroll through this patient's clinical history.

 

Reports

Reports can generate detailed Patient Data Sheets (PDS).
