Electronic Health Record (EHR)
The EHR that is being offered is a browser based which allows the data to be stored at a secured server located in the centralized location. The solution is scalable and allows easy customization. The server browser based allows simultaneous access from multiple locations.
Optionally EHR details can further be allowed for access from the patients within the network from any location. The statistical analysis solution can then be used CME and for data mining which enables proper disease surveillance and epidemiology control.
Structure Our system is modular in structure and is web based. The solution can be easily customizable.. Record details.
The record details include :
Complaints and Symptoms
Past Medical History
Other Specialist Opinion
And all these information is held in electronic health records of the patient. Our solution was built keeping in mind the HL 7 & ITTH standards. Standards
Our EHR has been designed as per ITTH standards. Our EHR system meets with international standards which allows exchange of data and integration of different components of an individual's record through HL7 and the exchange of information is possible provided the other systems also are HL7 compliant.
The electronic health records are stored in a centralized server and the archival of this information is possible through secured Login and password and this data is available only to those remote doctors and specialist to whom it is referred. Data capture.
The medical data like ECG, X-ray Images, Path slides etc,.. are stored along with the patient demography details in a centralized server.
Patient held electronic storage devices
These vital data and information of all the patients are held in an electronic format and stored in the centralized server , in addition these data can also be exported back.
Our HL7 Engine provides the interface from external systems like HIS or EMR's from other vendors to the Space Hospitals EHR System. The supported HL7 messages are ADT, Order, Patient Referral and Record, Control and Ancillary. The Space Hospitals HL7 Engine implements the Hl7 2.3 Standards Specification.
The HL7 is implemented as server services operating on a request response mechanism. When using HL7, the interface allows for numerous other systems to be added to a single HL7 feed.
Once you have a feel for the data, you need to consider what kind of segment and table grammar will be optimal for the data you are working with. The optimal format will depends on the information to be extracted.
ICD 10 and LOINC
We have integrated our Electronic health record to a complete database ICD 10 CM and PCS and LOINC, which would allow the specialist to enter appropriate codes for the patients. We have provided these details in an alphabetical order for easy entry of these codes. A comprehensive search mechanism would enable the doctors to search on codes or for codes by specifying the disease and /or lab information.
Space Hospitals has the strength to web enable any medical equipment which has connectivity to PC thru Serial, USB, Mic, Infrared, Firewire , Video output etc.. However it will be easier to interface if the output parameters from these medical equipments are provided to web-enable . The nature of this medical equipment and its application and the front end for the same should be provided by the hospital.
The system is integrated with PC based ECG machine and works using a common internet browser and does not require any application software to be installed in patient or doctor end.
The solution can be used in real-time or in store and forward mode and the data gets stored in the centralized server along with the Electronic Medical record. Our solution allows simultaneous connectivity from various locations.
All the 12 leads of ECG is displayed in different screen formats and the online filtering of ECG allows to doctor to eliminate unwanted mains and muscle tremor noise from the ECG Waveform.
The ECG can also be recorded in offline mode and uploaded to the server once the recording is completed.
The ECG reporting is on either on a grid sheet or on a plain paper in 4 * 3 format in colour or monochrome.
The comments that are entered by the specialist are also printed with the ECG report.
Scanner - Radiology
The system is integrated with A3 size scanner kept on the tripod stand and are connected thru USB port and the X-ray images is scanned and this is uploaded into the server as a Jpeg file. This data is then DICOMized at the server end and is available as a medical record in DICOM like format.
This data is viewed using free DICOM viewers and then reported and is available for the patient end doctor for printing along with the assessments entered by the specialist at the doctor end.
The Manipulation tools include Zoom, Pan Zoom, Windowing, Tilt, Invert etc,.. which would assist the specialist to view a particular area of interest and report accordingly.
The Image Gateway is collocated in the hospital where it is connected to the console of the CT / MRI system on a LAN. The data from the CT / MRI console is pushed into the Image gateway. The administration console would further help the patient end doctor to see the series and the images of the patients. The data from the image gateway is automatically forwarded to the data center as the data is received from the modality.
The Images in the image center is a temporary storage area and these are deleted by the administrator.
The Data is received from the Image center and this is stored in a secured database and these are accessed by doctors who have secured login and access to this data. The administrator can archive the data or retrieve the data from the backup device.
The DICOM Viewer is automatically invoked upon choosing the patient study/ series/image instance through the Space Proview workflow manager. The Images are then seen and reported by the specialist. The Patient or remote end doctor view and then print the reports.
