These are examples of some of the types of systems that your clinical team can build with iCIMS’ technology.
Clinical Care Information Systems (CCIS)
Clinical Care Information Systems (CCIS) are systems required by medical specialists at the point of care with their patients. A mimic including all electronic and paper forms can be designed if you are transitioning from an archaic or existing system. If you do not have an existing system, you can design your new system from clinical requirements, or develop it from one of our pre-designed systems.
iCIMS supports the design of registries whether they be for professional quality audits, scientific trials or population based epidemiology. Data registries collect information that usually needs to be extracted from the clinical record. In an iCIMS system, a mimic of the registry can be designed so that the required data is collected in one place and subsequently transmitted to the registry using the API or HL7 messaging standard.
iCIMS supports the design of research systems regardless of whether you are an existing client.
If you are already using an iCIMS system, you can design your research system which can automatically populate the research required fields from your CCIS. An approval of research enrolment and patient consent would register the patient in the research system with a case summary from the CCIS and any data entry forms that is research-specific required by the researchers.
If you do not have an existing iCIMS system, you can still design your own system specifically to the research team requirements — from scratch, or develop it from the base functioning supplied by us or from one of our pre-designed systems. Your system can be used for manual data entry or automatic import from external source systems using HL7 messaging or standard spreadsheets that will be set-up to accept automatically with data validation for any errors.
An iCIMS system can be a destination point for data warehousing data from various organisations. The ability of an iCIMS system to communicate both with its own systems and accept messages from external systems makes it ideal for being the collection of data from disparate applications. The ease of CIS development will also encourage many to adopt the iCIMS model even for small and short-term projects, increasing its value to the broader community.
