In order to move costs and care away from the hospital and primary care environment, healthcare professionals need to have access to medical records while they are out in the community. Furthermore, this access must be secure and reliable. An innovative patient management system from Vodafone mHealth Solutions is making this possible.
The system allows healthcare professionals to record and communicate patient information via smartphones. It gives travelling and community-based healthcare professionals, including emergency response personnel, all the communication and productivity tools they need to work efficiently in the field. Health workers can view their diaries, make appointments, record structured and non-structured data to update care plans, send messages to clinicians, and access in-office email and connect to other applications such as our solutions for lone workers and satellite navigation.
This means that staff can complete paperwork, share information with colleagues and record patient information without having to travel back to their base. Workloads can be managed, new referrals prioritised and individuals’ activity tracked by team leaders. There’s less time wasted in travel and duplication of data input – which means more face-to-face time with patients.
Studies show that through our mHealth Mobile Medical Records solution, we can immediately give users up to one hour of work time back each day. For the average community-based primary care facility this translates to around 60,000 additional patient visits a year with the same number of staff.
