At Comtact Healthcare, our experience is that there are significant process improvements and operational savings that can be secured by identifying those processes that lead to duplicated efforts, poor asset utilisation, slow information flows and poor patient turnaround.
To help healthcare organisations meet these challenges, Comtact Healthcare has developed a flexible portfolio of cloud-enabled healthcare applications to support customers on their Digital Healthcare Journey.
Designed for multi-phase deployment, healthcare service providers can deploy applications tactically to mobilise their healthcare, safe in the knowledge that previously fragmented healthcare informatics processes can be consolidated into a single, unified IT and service infrastructure.
Our healthcare tablet solution, Digital Forms creates an extremely effective and seamless way of eliminating paper-based forms, whilst also delivering a means of enabling hospital staff to work digitally in real-time, driving efficiency savings across all departmental functions.
Our customers typically realise a saving of at least £300k a year per digitised form as a result of saved clinical time, whilst also benefiting from improved patient care and automated, accurate reporting.
NHS Informatics strategy is a key driver determining the direction of travel for Comtact Healthcare' products overall. At a high-level, the Department of Health are rallying NHS trusts (acute and mental health) to achieve paperless working by 2018.
The future of healthcare is about increased joint working across health and social care, with services wrapped around the user. The public who depend on such services no longer expect these services to be delivered separately.
Integrated Digital Care Records are the natural successor to single trust digital care records, often termed Electronic Patient Records (EPRs).
There is presently a pan-government initiative to enable complete transparency of governmental data, healthcare outcome data been a core focus. The NHS Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). HSCIC are bringing together clinical service and outcome data held centrally in England into one place, so that it can be linked and analysed in ways that will better inform the delivery of care and services. Patients, academics, data intermediaries and other organisations can access the data and make comparisons that enable more informed choices.
Digital Dashboard is a state-of-the-art data warehouse solution that pulls together all of your separate data sources, across your entire hospital landscape. Achieve real-time departmental or enterprise information dashboard views by collating all the data from multiple systems and applications into one single analytical portal. This powerful content management solution gives you the ability to create reports and dashboards quickly and easily from multiple data sources, giving your management team the vital information they need to aid accurate and faster decision making and improve overall patient care.
Through Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, Digital Tracking keeps you informed in real-time on the utilisation and whereabouts of medical equipment, staff, patients and medical records throughout the hospital. Through enhanced asset visibility health carers are enabled to deliver better patient welfare through faster response times to their needs and also improve staff morale and wellbeing by removing the frustrations of having to search for equipment. Furthermore our solution delivers a highly effective healthcare staff attack solution with man down or staff duress alarms, and hospital plus push to talk secure wireless communications on either a one-to-one or broadcast basis.
RTLS provides two-way communication and accurate tracking within one metre. As soon as a staff alarm is generated, the key response team is immediately alerted and know exactly where the alert was originally generated, enabling them to provide a quicker response time. Often hospital environments rely on a plethora of systems for staff attack functionality and all employees are alerted, as opposed to the most relevant response team. In addition, the employee who raised the alarm still needs to be physically pinpointed within the hospital grounds. RTLS eradicates these inconsistencies, standardises processes and drives out inefficiencies.
Digital Tracking provides a view of the location of hospital equipment, leading to greater patient care efficiencies and improved staff morale. Unknown location of medical equipment, for example the knock-on effect of a lost wheelchair. Patient care is delayed, which can also impact other patient/clinician schedules, the overall level of hospital care provided and patient throughput.
