Nirvana Group migrates to Medtech Evolution

One of Auckland’s largest primary healthcare providers is migrating from its Medtech32 practice management software system to Medtech's Evolution platform.

The multi-clinic Nirvana Group includes East Tamaki Healthcare, Whitecross, West Auckland Healthcare and Mt Roskill Healthcare. The organisation wanted to upgrade its existing system to cater for future growth, and conducted a review of a number of different software platforms.

The group's chairman, Kanti Patel, said the technology was highly secure and interoperated with other products.

“The product will include browser and mobile solutions, enabling better healthcare for patients beyond the clinic in the future,” Dr Patel said.

Evolution, which has been in development since 2010, is built on Microsoft technologies with a SQL database and a Microsoft Office-like interface. It has also been designed for the cloud, with users able to access the system on mobile devices when using Medtech Cloud.

Medtech also has versions available for medical specialists and allied health practitioners as well as general practice.

Practices currently using Medtech 32 can retain their existing configurations when switching to Evolution, with shortcut keys remaining the same and similar naming conventions.

It has a more sophisticated patient management module that includes all clinical details such as medications, screening, recalls, accounts, disease management and coding, which can be referenced with one click.

It also includes a widget view that gives the practice's front desk a group of logically grouped functions that open simultaneously alongside the Appointment Book. Widgets are configurable and can have multi-pane views.

There is also a status screen that displays the current appointment status of arrived patients, tracks arrived patients with scheduled appointments, tracks patients who are listed in the queue, waiting room or in consultation and manage patient status.

Medtech Global chairman Vino Ramayah said it also featured many artificial intelligence elements through its Clinical and Business Intelligence Tool (CBIT).
