In the next few weeks, we will be officially launching our product suite, Patient-Centred Tumour Stream Suite (PTSS). iCIMS’ PTSS is a portfolio of clinical care information systems designed to support any set of tumour streams, filling the gap of medical oncology systems for surgery, patient management, MDM, and concomitant research systems, data warehouses and registries. Our MDM system includes a dashboard that reads into all tumour streams and subspecialties systems.
iCIMS’ Professor Jon Patrick and Mr Ali Besiso will be presenting at the Inaugural Clinical Redesign and Process Mapping (CRPM) Conference 2013.
Jon’s presentation is titled “Evaluation of Clinical Team Led Design for Clinical Information Systems“, which will describe the iCIMS technology that enables clinical team led design (CTLD) where the clinical team takes responsibility for the design of their own Clinical Information System (CIS), as well as the process and benefits of such a methodology.
Ali’s presentation is titled “Work process VS data process: The same data doesn’t mean the same work processes“, which will describe the new methodology developed by iCIMS that enables clinical staff to design and test their own custom solutions by mapping their detailed work processes into a CIS.
iCIMS and sister company HLL have recently been featured in an article in Pulse+IT Magazine, Australasia’s first and only ehealth and health IT magazine. Read the article here: iCIMS Brings Native Interoperability to Clinical Specialties.
Professor Jon Patrick is scheduled to present the following topic at the 5th Annual Emergency Department Management Conference:
Testing ED Clinical Information Systems: Case Study Discussing Collaborative Work With The Nepean Hospital
Event Type: Presentation
Date/Time: 22 July 2013, 4:10 pm
Description: Typically an ED Clinical Information System (CIS) is installed without the opportunity to assess either its detailed functionality or its effect and compatibility on the ED’s workflows. Methods for performing detailed evaluations are underdeveloped and comparison between systems in vivo is unheard of.
Discuss collaborative work with the Nepean Hospital to improve the methods and assessment of CISs and discuss the results from their investigation and the implications they have for all EDs.
There will then be a post-conference workshop presented by Jon and Ali Besiso:
Design of an ED Information Management System
Event Type: Workshop
Date/Time: 24 July 2013, 9 am – 12:30 pm
Description: The Emergency Department (ED) is a high risk environment for clinical errors, breaches in patient safety and, staff stress. The design of a clinical information system will have a significant impact on the efficiency of staff work, job satisfaction, and concomitant stress levels let alone the risk they create for patient safety. ED clinical information systems need to suit the particular settings in which they operate in order to achieve the desired staff efficiency and patient safety.
Objectives: This workshop will be an interactive session that will explore the different approaches to the design of an ED information system. Attention will be given to identifying the issues that are created by inefficient systems, the extent to which they increase the demands on staff to be hyper-vigilant and create risky workarounds. Methods for creating effective and efficient information systems that avoid these difficulties will be explored with a software design tool that enables the clinical team to create their own system. The workshop will also discuss successful clinical user testing methods and the importance of system adaptability for continuous clinical work process improvement supported with practical ED examples.
Walk-ins are welcome so please head on over for a demonstration!
iCIMS has a booth at the Australian Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) Scientific Meeting 2013, running from 2-5 May 2013. Our staff Professor Jon Patrick and Mr Ali Besiso will be demonstrating our main system for colposcopy services, Colposcopy Information Management System (ColIMS), as well as other information management systems that are capable of direct data exchange with ColIMS, such as GynaeOncology Information Management System (GynaeOncIMS), GynaeOncology Registry, and Cervical Cancer Research System (CervicalCancerRS).
Dates: 2 May 2013 (Thursday) to 5 May 2013 (Sunday)
Location: Level 6 – Exhibition Hall, Amora Hotel, Wellington, NZ
Please don’t hesitate to approach us for a demonstration!
