Electronic Health Records
Modern healthcare calls for comprehensive IT solutions to manage patient information. Too often, patient data and information is spread across multiple systems and silos that do not communicate easily with one another, if at all.
From clinical trials through to general patient healthcare, large volumes of medical data are generated on a daily basis with near-real time processing requirements. Enabling full and timely use of this data can make a critical difference to patient outcomes, but this is only possible when the right IT tools are available. Without the right systems in place, medical practitioners have difficulty gathering all of the information they need. Professionals are then obliged to struggle with incomplete or unusable data, lacking both detail and a complete overview of historical patient information, which in turn negatively impacts patient care and operational efficiency.
CRITICAL Software’s integrated electronic health records solutions tackle the problems of reliable data aggregation in the healthcare sector, providing real-time data visualisations that support better decision making. We are able to deliver an intuitive, patient-centric portal and other related services, which allow relevant clinical data to be gathered from a wide range of information systems and made accessible through a single point-of-access.
The benefits of this are numerous. Patient care is improved through a system that takes all of the available data from multiple systems, organisations and healthcare providers and channels them into a single access point with a single 'language'. This allows healthcare professionals to conduct queries on patients’ information in a fast and comprehensive way, reducing errors resulting from misdiagnosis and removing unnecessary repeat medical examinations - all of which provides better patient outcomes and cost efficiencies.
As a secondary use, data can be used anonymously to better understand the real-time health status of whole populations, identifying health risks and improving patient outcomes at a macro-level. Customisable dashboards allow medical professionals to track a wide range of general health indicators.
Security, reliability and confidentiality are of huge importance in the health sector. Our solutions are built on openEHR standards, ensuring that patient information is never compromised and that access is provided only to those with the appropriate authorisation.
