Final case study

  1. 1. Case Study mMR Application for Hospitals. Introduction The use of information technology in managing medical records in hospitals is becoming essential as demands on the health care system increases each day. This study aims at determining how information technology (IT) is used to manage medical records in a hospital in a resource- poor environment .Kloud Data announced development of the SAP Healthcare Solution Pocket Chart mobile solution to give medical professionals access to medical records even when they are away from the hospital. Using tablets and smart phones, SAP new solution for mobile devices will be available in Germany mMR by Kloud data is a winning application for health care: Fig.1 Application details.
  2. 2. Above figure showing the details of mMR application made by Kloud Data lab pvt. Ltd .i.e application can navigate full patient history ,bidirectional data synchronization, can able to view initial assessment of the patient, view demography details of the patient, Laboratory icon view patient investigation result and also request for new investigation, Radiology icon help to know the patient radiology result like CTscan, MRI and also help to request for new radiology investigation, can also able to assess HAI, In Prescription icon Doctor can prescribe medicine which reflect back on pharmacy module, doctor can view previous note with consultant and add notes with date and time stamp, similarly can create discharge summary and request for patient discharge with one click. Its an open flexible architecture: Fig 2 Application is open flexible architecture. mMR is an open flexible architecture .It run smoothly on Galaxy tab, iphone, ipad and other devices and applications back end consist of SAP patient management, PACS,LIS and other application.

  4. 4. Discussion mMR application features are:- 1. Enables access to wide range of medical data, both inside and away from hospitals :- mMR provides physicians access to various data stored on electronic medical records systems, including treatment histories, disease information, test results, x-ray images, surgical records, pathology reports, and vital signs. When doctors need to be consulted when away from the hospital, previously telephone conversations were required to convey the patient's condition to the doctor, but this new solution enables doctors to access electronic records by using a mobile device, providing them with more accurate and thorough medical information. Furthermore, because the solution is equipped with authorization functionality for doctors to approve such actions as patient discharges, it also supports daily hospital operations. 2. User-friendly dedicated application compatible with both Android and iOS devices:- mMR is compatible with both the popular Android and iOS operating systems for mobile devices. For each of these operating system environments, the solution has mobile user interfaces with easy-to-use applications. 3. Security:- mMR ensures robust security when handling medical charts that contain a great deal of personal information. The solution allows mobile devices to display on-screen information only by reading HTML, so the data are never actually stored within the device itself. This means that, in the event that the device is lost, sensitive information is prevented from being leaked. Furthermore, when accessing a hospital's electronic records system, devices must first pass an authentication check within Fujitsu's datacenter. By taking this step, the system prevents illegal use by unauthorized devices. The case study has generated valuable insights to aid in the implementation processes of the next phase of IT adoption in the hospital. The findings suggest that, in a system where there are procedures and processes of doing things, the relevant authorities cannot be bypassed when new concepts are being introduced. Thus, there is the need for these authorities to act swiftly to approve the implementation of useful ideas which will impact positively on health care. Secondly, the introduction of the new processes requires adequate training and sensitization. Humans are used to their old ways and when new and better ways of doing things are to be introduced, adequate preparation should be given and the advantages of the new processes spelt out clearly so that support for the change can be obtained. From this study it shows that
  5. 5. it is highly simple process which any one can easily access.. Users of system not require any training and retraining make maximum use of the system and to prevent the system as being seen as difficult to use or too complex .It also not required any more staff to know the health records of your patients Thirdly, the enthusiasm with which technology is embraced will reduce if problems such as power shortages and inability to repair systems timely are encountered often. For example, if staff have embraced the idea of using IT in their work and always come in to find system break down, then the enthusiasm to work with the new system wanes. These findings in part reflect issues addressed in a research done by William and Borren (2008) on implementation challenges of IT in developing countries which showed that frequent power cuts, lack of commitment by authorities and slow response to change by staff will challenge the introduction and implementation of IT in a hospital in a developing country. Challenges Overcomed by mMR:-  Display Patient records on a handheld device at the point of care, in clear and easy- to-read format  Bidirectional flow of patient’s clinical records allows treating consultant to add day- to-day general notes of patient  Doctors/consultant can view up-to-date information of  patients any time, any place  Discharge patient with a single click on device  Need for a system which can connect to diverse backend systems .
  6. 6. Key Features:-  Integrates with you current hospital information and management system and imaging systems (HIS and PACS)  Integrated with Patient record, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Radiology ,Nursing and other modules of your existing Database/App  Mobilizes electronic patient records lying in the current Hospital Information System (HIS) and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)  Connects with heterogeneous databases like MySQL, SQL Anywhere, Cache, DB2 and others  App supports the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for Privacy and Security . Benefits:-  Medical Record mobile app for ios & Android device- doctors and nurses have easy and secure access to the relevant patient data right at the point of care  Doctor can check all the live data of patient on his iPad during ward inspection  Is a wireframe solution that can easily adapt to your patient care processes  Protects your current system’s investment and extracts remarkable additional value that can profoundly impact your patient satisfaction and productivity metrics .
  7. 7. Recommendation:- It is highly recommended solution as it helps in:-  Track data over time  Identify patients who are due for preventive visits and screenings  Monitor how patients measure up to certain parameters, such as vaccinations and blood pressure readings  Improve overall quality of care in a practice This Application helps you to redesign workflows and identify best practices that:  Efficiently transition your organization to an EMR system  Provide more timely access to patient information  Drive operational savings  Shorten your revenue cycle  Improve regulatory compliance.
  8. 8. Conclusion:- By employing the new solution, hospitals will be able to transmit accurate and thorough medical information to doctors when they are away from the hospital, such as at night, on weekends, or when they are attending medical conferences, thereby supporting the provision of rapid medical care during emergencies or other situations. The solution will also serve doctors within hospitals, providing them with quick reference to medical records when a PC is not readily available, such as when they are making rounds, briefing patients or attending meetings. The practice of medicine today requires ICT environments that enable physicians to access the data they need to make appropriate treatment decisions, anytime and anywhere, through tablets and smart phones, which are rapidly coming into widespread use. To meet this demand, Kloud data developed mMR solution, which ensures a secure environment by performing access authentication for pre-registered mobile devices at Kloud data centers. From outside hospitals, authorized devices are then allowed to access electronic medical records stored on hospital servers. As a result, doctors who use mMR can view patient data, including treatment information and x-ray images, via a mobile device, even outside of their hospital. Up until now doctors needed to have a patient's condition conveyed by telephone, but this solution will support the delivery of high-quality healthcare from anywhere.
