The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) recognized the opportunity to improve clinical documentation for critically ill Neonatal patients (i.e., babies in the first 30 days of life) being transferred to SickKids from remote referring hospitals. The previous documentation system was paper-based, and it involved duplication of documentation from the paper charts to the SickKids e-charting system. Dapasoft was contracted to develop an automated clinical documentation solution to make clinical data and video images available to medical experts at SickKids, and automatically transfer the clinical data into the SickKids e-Charting system.
Dapasoft developed the Transport Remote Access Care (TRAC) system, an application that automatically transfers vital signs and clinical data from the field to the hospital charting system, and provides data and video images of the patient to remote physicians via a web portal. Medical experts are now able to view patient data and video images of the patient from the remote hospital site, to provide additional information to help the medical experts provide direction and support to the remote transport teams.
The primary benefits of the solution are:
Medical Experts have direct access to:
- Patient visuals
- Clinical measurements
Enhanced documentation through electronic data integration to devices:
- Vital signs
- Video images
Automated data transfer into SickKids e-Charting system
Eliminate duplication of documentation
Minimal change to current clinical practices in place
Ensured patient confidentiality
The TRAC system has greatly enhanced the communication between the remote transport teams and the medical experts that provide direction and support. With TRAC automatically gathering patient data, the transport team spends less time with the task of paper-based charting, and more time focused directly on the patient care. Doctors are able to access patient visuals, and monitor clinical data from remote hospital sites. The TRAC solution benefits approximately 1000 neonatal patients annually, from the SickKids referring network of approximately 100 hospitals.
Dapasoft gained a reputation as an international leader in healthcare application development thanks to our award-winning solutions, ranging from HL7 systems integration, custom software development and e-Learning. To learn more about TRAC or our other products, contact us today.
