Optimizing Clinician work

Sep 1, 2010 at 4:45 PM

What are the best ways to optimize the clinician work. Can a doctor completes the patient clinical record (EHR) for a visit in 3 min in using computer?

What are the bestways to present the screens for doctors?

How fast can a doctor key in the prescription in computer?

Yes you can easily enter it in 3.  But the picklist of readcodes is too slow in appearing.  The picklist also needs to be in the order of how common a readcode is used, so if I type Diabetes, I'd want type 2 diabetes top of the list not a long way down.

As it is now, possibly due to bandwidth it isn't as quick and crisp as it needs to be.  I need to be able to do things in 1 not 3 mins.

Obviously the length of the allowed text fields in data entry in the demonstrator are too short.

It needs a tasks section so that actions can be quickly and easily made, that can have traceability and assurance that a task is followed through and completed.


You also need to have the concept of active health issues - what diagnoses does a patient have.  Often they will present with the same diagnosis again so I want to be able to re select that quickly.  When prescribing I need to have the full previous medication reecord to hand - having the prescibing box as is would make this impossible to use.
