Creating patient-centred clinical documentation through facilitated, digitised and connected solutions

The main objective of a clinical documentation solution is to deliver timely, accurate, concise documentation about the patient, to the patient and caregivers.

Operating an effective clinical documentation solution requires engaging a combination of components including, dictating and referring clinicians, administration staff, external recipients, the PAS and EMR, in-house typists, an outsource transcription company and speech recognition.

A digitised solution that is efficient and cost-effective relies on all these components being integrated and accessed easily, simple to deploy and manage, and is housed in a secure and scalable platform in the cloud.

At iMedX we know that hospitals and providers need all these components to operate effectively, whilst being responsive to their needs and strategic objectives.

Striking the right balance

If one of these key components is not considered, the effectiveness of the solution and its ability to meet all stakeholder needs is hampered. It is easier to balance the utilisation of these, while creating a flexible and appropriate solution, if the platform is electronic and secure.

There are hospitals that need to access outsource resources easily, and others that require clinician accessibility and flexible working, ultimately the platform needs to be able to accommodate for all the needs of the users and provide the appropriate integration.

iMedX provides the platform to access these components and integrate with them but gives the provider the power and the control to manage the utilisation of them.

Leveraging the components

The key to providing timely, accurate, concise documentation about the patient, to the patient and caregivers is effectively leveraging the usage of each of the components.

What we commonly see in hospitals is that clinicians need to access speech recognition, as well as outsource transcription; inhouse typists need to access speech recognition; managers need access to an overview of the process and reports to ensure efficiency; everyone needs to access the PAS; and everything needs to end up in the EMR.

At iMedX we believe that the most effective clinical documentation solutions are not achieved through solely utilising just one component, for example speech recognition, but rather connecting them to one another and facilitating the relationships in the most productive, cost-effective way.
