To do everything….
PrimaryCare IT has developed the “One Template”. This will be the only template that any of your clinical team will ever need. Different views are seen depending on the user:
- Doctors having minimal of information, but highlighting where patients may be on maximal tolerated or appropriate therapy.
- Nurses and HCAs having more detailed information and complete review information to be able to fully review any of the chronic diseases
The template is fully dynamic and so only things that are relevant to the patient you have in front of you are displayed.
Through innovative use of EMIS Web the template informs you which blood monitoring is needed for the patient you are seeing dependant on the drugs they are taking and the conditions they have. If you have opted for our UTI pathway it will also highlight whether you should be sending an MSU, dipping their urine or simply treating. In this way, unnecessary usage of pathology services can be avoided.
The template is structured in such a way that prescribers are able to quickly enter salient information and where maximum appropriate or tolerated therapy has been achieved ensure this is appropriately coded. For nursing teams a more thorough approach to review is undertaken making sure of full compliance with NICE quality standards for each of the disease areas.
Where there is an opportunity to increase prevalence of conditions through optimal coding this is highlighted to the user with prompts.
There are links to various patient education resources such as inhaler techniques, foot care for diabetics etc. Where users have opted for our clinical care pathways the template ensures that all data for self management plans is entered and ready to populate the self management plan fully, with minimal additional information being needed
What will this mean for my Practice?
We will work with you to understand how your Practice manages patients currently and make sure that our template integrates smoothly and cause minimal interruption whilst ensuring that prompts remind users of treatment targets and the need to move towards diagnosis. Through extensive testing we are confident our standard template represents a good balance, but we are able to adapt for individual Practice’s needs. We will sign a confidentiality agreement with your practice and then install the template and concepts on your system. Quarterly updates will add any new advances or developments to your system.
