Any of these modules may be quickly implemented to solve immediate, pressing problems, or modules can be adopted as an integrated portfolio to serve more expansive needs.
At the heart of TrakCare sits the electronic Patient Record (EPR), which captures the continuum of clinical and administrative information about a patient, and the Patient Master Index (PMI). The PMI can be run as a standalone product within a hospital or may be part of a larger state or national system.
What sets TrakCare apart from other hospital information systems (HIS) is its unique design, advanced underlying technologies, and “FastTrak to EPR” architecture and methodologies. This combination ensures that TrakCare offers unparalleled flexibility and speed-to-results, with rich EPR benefits available from the very first TrakCare module implemented. TrakCare can effortlessly encompass EPR information from a variety of systems, including legacy systems and non-TrakCare systems. From its inception,
TrakCare was built to meet the needs of the international marketplace. The TrakCare system provides multi-language support, and customers can readily customize layouts to support local language text. Unlike many hospital information systems that have evolved to become Web-enabled, TrakCare was designed from the ground up as a Web-based solution that allows ubiquitous and secure access to patient information, regardless of the healthcare professional’s location. Since it is Web-based, TrakCare also offers the hardware cost-benefits of a thin client while minimizing the IT and administrative overhead costs associated with software upgrades in the traditional client/server environment.
The rigidity of most HIS systems requires healthcare professionals to either adapt processes to mirror their system, or face a lengthy and costly custom implementation project. Laborious specifications detailing phases notoriously delay HIS implementations. If everything is not defined perfectly, or when specifications change, these systems are frustratingly difficult to modify.
With TrakCare, customers can be up and running quickly, armed with powerful tools to readily tailor the solution as and when they choose – a future-proof solution that can rapidly address changes in technology, administration, and healthcare policies without expensive, lengthy recoding.
The built-in Layout Editor allows users to configure all screens to suit not only the function being performed, but also the unique needs of individuals and groups performing those functions. Menus, driven by workflows, can be defined for an individual user or for groups of users. Every module includes a variety of easy-to-identify icons and colors to highlight patient conditions. All icons are interactive and selectable, and provide an overview of the patient at a glance as well as the ability to drill down into the data.
