A dynamic patient chart is the electronic collection of medical data about the patient. It is searchable, and available on a smart phone, tablet or any computer. The dynamic patient chart has a feature that selects only those data relevant to a specific doctor’s appointment; that way the medical context of the patient meets the medical expertise of the doctor. This selective presentation of data facilitates the workflow of the doctor.
Patients are people, and people are very diverse. Patient context encompasses things that make us who we are, including gender, age, upbringing, and living situation. A claustrophobic patient may not want to be treated in small rooms, or a Jehovah’s witness may refuse blood transfusion due to religious beliefs. To ensure that your doctor treats you and your context, he or she needs to understand factors in your life.
EHR’s contain only the information about a treatment the patient had at that specific institution. If information from other institutions is required, time and effort are required. The MediPrepare Patient Context is ready for a doctor’s visit- the doctor does not have to organize the data anymore. MediPrepare summarizes all the relevant data so the doctor can see it within 15 seconds.
The idea of patient portals is to collect patient information from different sources and make it accessible through the portal. Mediprepare is different. It is not a collection of data. It gives a structured overview of the Patient Context collected from the patient himself. The patient is the primary source of information.
MediPrepare enhances the patient-doctor team, facilitates the workflow of the doctor substantially, elevates the quality of consultation time by allowing more face-to-face communication, reduces the administrative burden of the doctor, and increases the quality level of the care process through more involvement of the patient.
MediPrepare starts out with the most basic questionnaires. The data describe who the patient is in terms of name, place of residence, insurance, and contact details, and of course the General Medical Context. Building blocks are continuously added to this basic foundation, and provide more detail. The patient is prepared for encounters with doctors thanks to questionnaires about current complaints, which are divided into over 130+ medical subspecialties, and 60,000 diseases, syndromes and conditions.
Yes. The questionnaire enables care providers to compose the most convenient care process. If patients are healthy it may spare them a hospital visit. If the patient has many complaints or medicines, more time for a doctor’s consultation can be scheduled. Patients directly benefit from the questionnaire, whether they are healthy or not.
At emergency rooms doctor and patient do not know each other yet. The questionnaire provides a quick but complete overview of the Patient Context. For pre-operative screening it saves patients a hospital visit. At policlinics the intake of patients is more convenient with MediPrepare questionnaires as the doctor has a more in-depth patient context.
If invited by a doctor to complete one, the questionnaire can be obtained for free. In that case doctors pay-per-use because they can enhance the medical process. If the patient takes the initiative themselves, a payment is due on a pay-per-use case.
Every doctor should know who the patient is and what their context is. MediPrepare helps patients to collect data and present this information to a doctor in an efficient and professional manner. Only that way you can be sure your doctor knows that you have diabetes, use 10 different medications, and are allergic to penicillin. The context is an excellent starting point for your doctor, focusing on you as a person before moving on to the details of your visit.
I am an Institution: hospitals, poli- and private clinics, GP Practices
Hospitals and clinics benefit most. A medium-sized hospital with 50,000 admissions per year could easily reduce costs by 0.5 million euros annually. Clinics can benefit substantially because they often have patients whom they don’t know. Fast track routes benefit because information is up to date.
GP’s benefit since subjective information is often a valuable addition to existing information in the GP’s electronic health record.
The questionnaires are compatible with any care process in the world. It can be used as a standalone stored on your own device, in print, or to be accessed online. Depending on the workflow and need it can be integrated manually or in a (semi-) automated form.
MediPrepare gives the doctor the best possible way to see information in 15 seconds that would normally take about 30 minutes to assess. Patient helps the doctor by completing it themselves at home or before the visit. Thus, the risk of misdiagnosis is decreased and the doctor retains more time for a more human approach.
The information always originates from the patient. The patient has gathered both subjective and additional objective information from other sources. The information source is always traceable. Hypertext and colouring or bold/italic shows generic domains of sources.
This depends on the level of integration you want in your organization. Immediate use is possible by scanning it manually and using it as input for your current electronic record system or document management system. If individual data elements need to be fully integrated with your record system, additional time is required. MediPrepare is preparing for integration with any GP and hospital EHR system.
MediPrepare applies discriminatory pricing. Costs will always be at a level that the institution does not pay more than 30% annually of current cost levels. Additional implementation and integration costs will be charged for.
MediPrepare ensures compliance with GDPR and ensures that the patient has 100% control over his or her own data. MediPrepare has involved experts for the platform design to comply with regulations.
I am a patient
Your doctor should receive and collect information about your complaints. They need to be viewed in the context of you and your general health. A health record provides orientation and increases the chances of quickly identify the cause of the problem.
It takes between 15 and 20 minutes to generate a Patient Context.
You can complete the questionnaire at your own convenience. After having stopped completing the form, you can always resume where you left off.
You either store it on your own device, or in MediPrepare’s storage. You can access it anywhere in the world where internet connection is available.
The patient context can be shared by keeping a print version, or electronically. Electronically there are several ways: storing it on your own device to show it, sending it by email or creating a vault on the MediPrepare platform and giving access permission. Please be aware that the vault feature is not yet available.
Patients above 50 years of age or patients with multi-morbidity or a chronic disease. These patients see several doctors and attend several consultations per year. Questionnaires provide updated information and help make sure patients do not forget important details of their complex conditions.
Patients that have a language barrier or who are not acquainted with the doctor yet also benefit. Emergency situations or evening, night, and weekend shifts for primary care also receive value from questionnaire. Furthermore, travellers and tourists, international business professionals, and migrants benefit. In refugee camps questionnaires are a simple way to provide a quick start for health care.
You may receive an invitation if you are in treatment with a care provider. However, if you are travelling abroad you can create one yourself without invitation. You may want to obtain a Patient Context in the language of your destination country. Patients who see multiple doctors can benefit from an updated patient context that provides a complete overview, and keep their own file up to date.
