|Policlinic care is intense in the sense of the number of patients that are treated.|
Getting it right...
|One of the basic problems in policlinic care is to process the many patients that apply for treatment as efficiently as possible. One way to reach this goal is to define a clear-cut clinical path for each of the medical problems that the policlinic should be able to address. Based on the clinical path, targets can be set for the admission time (duration between first contact and first appointment) and the time needed to complete the treatment. IT tools could then be used to ensure that patients are treated in accordance with these targets by streamlining the intake process and providing continuous monitoring of the intake to allow redistribution of available resources to meet the demands.|
|Inspektor Medical, in collaboration with Plexus Medical Group NV and the AMC in Amsterdam, has developed the program TIP.
TIP - which is short for Telephone Intake Protocol - is a fully configurable application
that can be used to support and enforce intake protocols for any policlinic and generate
the management information needed to monitor the performance of the policlinic. It can do
this in close cooperation with the existing IT-tools such as the Hospital Information
System and existing appointment tools.
TIP can be used anywhere where appointments should be made according to a protocol and continuous monitoring of supply and demands is needed.
Getting it done...
|Implementing TIP in an organization requires minimally three stages:
Inspektor Medical and Plexus Medical can jointly offer complete solutions along these lines. For more information click here.
