Stat Health adds data reporting tool

Practice and clinical management software vendor Stat Health will release a new data reporting tool next month that allows users to create their own data sets for clinical and administrative use.

The data reporting feature is undergoing beta testing this month before being rolled out to current users of Stat software next month.

Stat Health CEO Carla Doolan said the tool was aimed at “empowering users to run their own queries and extract a cross-section of data, including clinical, administrative and patient demographic information.

“It allows users to interrogate clinical data more fully then they have been able to in the past,” Ms Doolan said.

Users will have access to the entire administrative database, the MIMS drug database, the ICPC-2 PLUS coding system, vaccination register and coded pathology results, she said.

This allows Stat to identify patient groups based on categories including demographics, conditions, medications, vaccinations, measurements such as height/weight and blood pressure and other clinical information.

Bulk notifications to patients regarding particular issues are available with the extracted data linked to the recall/reminder system, the “To Do” action area and also letters for a mail-out.

Ms Doolan said that once a report or query is created, it can be saved, reused and modified with the end user able to view the particular filters in each report.

“An example may be to search for all patients who have had no allergy recording performed in their clinical file. A “To Do” can then be placed on every identified file to remind clinicians to check this when the patient next attends.”

Another example is the ability to create a list of female patients in a certain age range who have not had a Pap smear in the last two years and to send them a reminder letter. Similarly, this feature would help identify patients who are due for care plans or health assessments.

“When designing this reporting tool, we ensured our clients had the ability to extract the information they need in an uncomplicated manner without the need for third party software,” she said.

“Experience tells us that practices are requiring more sophisticated queries all the time and the Stat reporting tool meets these requirements and allows practices to access statistics for benchmarking and risk management purposes.”

The data reporting tool is one of several new features in the latest version Stat, which also includes the integration of eRx Script Exchange, the ability to add and edit graphic templates, a comprehensive “To Do” message/action facility which is practice/user definable as well as having a full audit trail to aid in risk management within the practice.
