InterSystems gives TrakCare an enhanced interface
InterSystems will release a new version of its TrakCare unified health information system, featuring improved medication management functionality and an enhanced web interface, to the market tomorrow.
The new release of TrakCare offers electronic medication management functionality across electronic prescribing, dispensing and medication administration.
Medication management is a major focus, with all data relevant to medication management residing in a single repository.
This unified, closed loop approach helps reduce medication errors and makes it easier to achieve time and cost savings through reductions in data entry, unnecessary communications, and stock wastage, the company said.
The new release also includes significant enhancements in workflow, configurable medication charts, additional alert capabilities, and a new method of displaying alerts to reduce “alert fatigue” and make it easier for care providers to take immediate action.
Enhanced clinical functionality in TrakCare includes new clinical summaries, alerts and “break-the-glass” capabilities, improved care planning and review worklists, and grids and planners for appointments, bed bookings, and operating theatre bookings.
These are combined with an enhanced web interface with easier navigation to different functions and the ability to personalise information via Surgical Preferences, My Patient Lists and Clinical Summary Templates.
TrakCare also now includes a patented technology called iKnow which analyses and indexes unstructured data to unlock the value of important information held in clinical notes or any other type of free text, regardless of its source.
iKnow automatically indicates the most meaningful elements in the data without needing any input from the user, not even a search term.
TrakCare is used in 25 countries around the world, with deployments ranging from single hospitals to nationwide networks.
