Mobile solutions are proving pivotal to community health care. The AMS mobile platform delivers work place efficiencies by enabling smart, fast, secure flows of real time information between health professionals in the field, patients, clinicians in hospitals, and Patient Administrations Systems. It provides real time patient information to clinical teams – anywhere, anytime.
Digitising data collection on mobile devices has multiple benefits. It removes both the need for clinicial field staff to travel to a base clinic to hand in paper or pick up files, and/or manually entering data. Using AMS, Community staff can also achieve secure mobile peer review signoff before data enters Patient Administration systems.
Data Collection time per visit reduced by 40%
Mobile peer review for timely clinical sign off ensuring data varacity before entering Patient Administration System.
Reduced need to travel to Base start/end of the day leaves increased time for Patient care with fewer work stations required.
Data securely transferred from mobile device to Patient Administration systems and vice versa. This eliminates manual data entry and gives immediate access to erveyone of the latest information.
Process Improvement. Initially, existing “forms” are digitized. Then, both the Clinicial Users and the IT staff, review and identify improvements. These can include adding on device validation and specific formulae for ensuring the accuracy of the data collected.
Direct Savings of approx 20% of the Clinicians time previously used for manual data entry and “forms” prep before visits. This alone has been calculated at NZ$5000 per Clinician per year.
