  • Patent number: 8893121
    Abstract: A portal is established between a software installer and a client to allow on-line management of a software implementation project. The installer of customizable software and the client may communicate through the portal to establish specifications for the software product. The software may be implemented by incorporating preconfigured software components into the software product. A portion of the preconfigured components may be modified based on the specifications of the client. The specifications may be identified by providing the client with a set-up wizard through the portal. The set-up wizard prompts the client for information and the software system may be configured based on logic generated in response to client input.

  • Patent number: 8751262
    Abstract: Methods and systems for accessing information stored in an electronic patient record are disclosed. A memory stores a set of medical logic instructions which code for retrieval of multiple items of information stored in the electronic patient record for a given patient. Optionally, the instructions code for a rules-based interpretation of information stored in the electronic patient record, such as instructions that apply criteria in a quality scoring system and generate a score. The medical logic instructions are associated with an “intelligent token”, i.e., a character string such as |DIABETES|, |ASTHMA| or |PROGRESS|. The invoking of the intelligent token triggers execution of the medical logic instructions and retrieval of the information from the database. The intelligent tokens can be embedded into document templates, or selected or entered by the user as part of a document creation process.

  • Publication number: 20140122124
    Abstract: A medical records software apparatus and method is described that allows a clinician, e.g., nurse or doctor, to combine entry of new patient orders, prescriptions, flowsheet observations, etc. into the documentation process or workflow. A documentation user interface is provided that pulls patient data from a database into the display. The user can select on the user interface a category of a patient record, e.g., Significant Events or Orders, view or edit prior entries in the database in these categories, and add additional documentation for that category. The documentation is written or pushed to two areas of the database, one devoted to patient documentation and a second area corresponding to the selected category, e.g., Orders. The method and apparatus improves workflow efficiency and promotes a smooth transition from the thought process of the clinician to the ordering or prescription process, without the need for changing venues or screen displays.

  • Publication number: 20130080183
    Abstract: A method and system for managing inventory for an ancillary medical facility that can be integrated into existing electronic healthcare records systems or practice management systems. The invention enables clinician users to order medical supplies electronically and to track the entire supply chain of the inventory item from the vendor/manufacturer to the patient. In one embodiment, requisitions are automatically generated when an inventory supply falls to a critical volume or reorder point. The system of the invention provides reporting modules that allow clinician users to analyze cost, inventory usage and adjustment, and supply conflict.
