Integrated Patient Record
The Stalis Integrated Patient Record (IPR) is a unique and innovative software suite that fully supports data integration across any size of healthcare organisation or locality as required for the commissioning, delivery and monitoring of integrated, patient-centric care.
The Stalis IPR provides the means to integrate healthcare records from across the local health and social care domain presenting the data in a fully structured, intuitive and uniform format, regardless of the system from which the data originated. It provides both uniform data access to and representation of the patient record so all parts of the patient record can be navigated in a consistent and intuitive way and all have the same ‘look and feel’.
Whilst Clinical Portal technologies that exist today provide a mechanism for healthcare professionals to view a patient’s record from a single point of access and at a particular point in time, the underlying data remains dispersed and disconnected in its own particular application. Such technologies are important but do not normally provide or support a longitudinal record of patient care.
Within the Stalis IPR, the data is fully integrated and stored in a centralised repository. Patient records from disparate systems can be linked and viewed as a single patient record regardless of the system of origin. Any patient data that can be linked by the application of business processing rules will seamlessly provide access between the source systems when viewing the record.
Trusts with multiple Patient based systems, both legacy and new, implement the Stalis IPR suite to give all users access to both historic and active data thus providing an overview of the continuum of care. The Stalis IPR supports any Trust by providing a view for the clinical users of what had previously been silos of separated data to which they had limited (or no) access. Where the integrated data spans primary and secondary care, both the IPR and associated reporting capabilities can be used to support multidisciplinary Integrated Care Pathways involving all sectors.
The Stalis IPR suite recognises that the data is essentially the patient’s and the consequent need for robust information governance. In addition to the standard Role Based Access controls it also supports advanced information governance measures including pseudonymisation for secondary users, access restrictions to legitimate relationships and ‘sealed envelopes’ for sensitive data.
As well as providing an integrated patient-centric view, the Stalis IPR can also be used to populate a data warehouse to support all aspects of operational and management reporting using the Stalis CareXML BI solution or the Trust’s existing system as appropriate. A full set of data management tools are also available which support the development of interfaces and the management of the data migration process where a Trust is moving on to new patient operational systems.
