Patient Dashboard

Patient Dashboard is a form that displays within Medtech32 every time you bring up a new patient.

The intention is to display on a single screen:

  • all key clinical information relevant to routine management of the patient
  • clinical information that is not recorded or is out of date
  • clinical tasks that should be considered
  • one click access” to many of the forms needed for routine clinical care.

Everything about Patient Dashboard can be customised to meet the local needs of the organisation:

  • the “rules” by which traffic lights are red/yellow/green
  • additional “rows” for other clinical areas of interest (e.g. Hep-B screening has been added for Northland) or rows removed that are not relevant
  • the “conditions of interest” and which READ codes they map to
  • the “rules” around clinical programmes e.g. whether the patient is eligible for a funded Care Plus review, diabetes annual review, smoking cessation support etc
  • the overall organisation and look and feel.

Patient Dashboard has been shown to significantly improve the quality and quantity of clinical information systematically recorded about patients.  This in turn leads to:

  • achieving PHO Performance Programme targets
  • improved service to patients
  • increased access to clinical programmes
  • improved population health information for the PHO.
