INTERDISCIPLINARY PATIENT RECORD
Each patient record is available electronically 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
Columna Clinical Information System (CIS) is the clinicians’ most central work tool – both on desktop and mobile devices – which fully supports the collaboration across specialties in hospitals.
In Columna’s electronic health record, healthcare professionals have a clear overview over a patient’s current condition and treatment process, while they are supported in the documentation of clinical tasks such as diagnosis, planning, treatment, and care. The clinician can easily get insights into a patient’s record – and at the same time easily access a more detailed overview.
Columna CIS includes core functions such as:
- Clinical measurements and assessments
- Overview of a patient’s medical history
- Contacts in the healthcare system.
The solution ensures cohesion between the clinical documentation and patient administrative needs.
GET TO KNOW THE FUNCTIONS
MAKES CLINICIANS MOBILE
With the mobile solution, the electronic health record is always at hand. Clinicians experience the same record no matter if they use mobile devices or desktop computers, and they will therefore have access to the same recognisable overview and functionality. At the same time, the mobile version of Columna’s health record makes it possible to document and register information bed-side while treating and caring for patients.
EASES DOCUMENTATION PROCESSES
Columna CIS supports the traditional structured clinical documentation as well as healthcare personnel with focus on problem oriented documentation. Independent of the need for documentation, the solution ensures an overview across the various information in a patient’s record. The treatment plans in the solution ensure better support of documentation and planning of e.g. cancer treatments, and this contributes to an increase in patient safety. With tools like graph view and liquid charts, clinicians are continuously supported in monitoring a patient’s condition.
Using the function “Overview”, the clinician is presented with a summary of the most essential and current information in a patient’s record. This enables the clinicians to evaluate a patient’s condition and the ongoing treatment. In Columna CIS, changes between various overviews can be made quickly, and the overviews are easily adaptable to the different specialties, clinical needs, departments, and patient types. This ensures that the content in the various overviews is always targeted at the relevant workflows and tasks.
The patient record, Columna CIS, makes planning of and carrying out tasks across hospital departments more efficient, which leads to optimal treatment processes for patients. The functionality “Plan and Result” makes it possible to get an overview of planned activities for the individual patient, and this contributes to a collective insight into a patient’s treatment plan, while supporting the planning of the further course of treatment. The automatically generated task lists mean that clinicians always have an overview of the tasks that need taking care of – across both patients and task types.
COUPLING CLINICAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE WORKFLOWS
Columna CIS reuses clinical documentation for administrative data, which makes a tangible difference for both clinicians and the administrative personnel. During a busy workday, workflows become more efficient as the same data only needs to be entered once. Registrations such as the arrival of the patient, hospitalisation time, and a later discharge are all integrated with the ongoing clinical documentation and planned appointments. The clinicians are thereby supported in the communication across specialties, departments, and sectors, including the patients’ general practitioner, home care providers, and other relevant healthcare professionals.
EASY TO CONFIGURE
Columna CIS is a flexible record that can be adapted to the individual department of a hospital, providing the employees with an overview of only the necessary information for an efficient workflow. Likewise, the record can be adapted to fit the clinical documentation practice by e.g. defining measurements and result models, standard results, and standard plans.
