EMR - Integrated Patient Information System (IPIS)

Integrated Patient Information System (IPIS) enables the doctors to capture information related to a patient such as Diagnosis, Radiology, Medical History, Surgical History, CPT/ICD Codes, etc. immediately through their PDA's or Desktops. This in turn creates an Electronic Medical Record System for the doctor, which can be searched based on information stored. It has been developed to run on both handheld devices and desktop computers.   The application also provides a feature for Wireless Communication/Infrared Communication. This allows the doctor to beam records to another Palm Handheld either as a single record or as all records. It also has a web-based interface which enables users to access the information anytime from anywhere.

Our expertise in software development  has enabled us to develop a tool-set which can help our clients create solutions in a timely and cost effective manner. For a free consultation and review please feel to  Contact Us at any time.

IPIS has three modules:-

  1. Desktop & Web-based Interfaces: These interfaces are used to maintain Patient information and to perform administrative activities such as Add, Edit/View & Delete operations. The application backs-up discharged Patients information and has many features such as custom reporting, etc.

  2. Palm Interface: Palm component runs on the handheld device and provides information related to Patients. The component also provides support for beaming. The user can beam the records either individually or all at once depending on the appropriate action being performed.

  3. Synchronization: Synchronization component helps in synchronizing the data between the handheld and PC database. While synchronizing the device, appropriate team can be selected whose information only needs to be synchronized. Synchronization can be either two-way or PC overrides handheld. Synchronization is performed through a component called Conduits, which is a Windows-based application that runs on the corresponding PC to which the handheld is connected

Palm & Desktop version includes the following features:-

  •  Filtering Patients List For ease of use: Several filtering options have been provided. User can filter the patients based on the Team and the Attending Physicians.

  • Sorting Patients List: Patients list can be sorted in multiple ways, for example, Room #, First Name, Last Name.

  • New Patient Entry / Edit Patient Entry: Ability to add new patient data / edit existing patients' data both on the Handheld and on the Desktop. Data Synchronization.

  • Medication Details: This module consists of the patient's Diagnostics, Radiology, Medicines, Procedures, PMH/PSH, ICD9/CPT codes.

  • Beaming: Supports infrared communication/Beaming of data between two handheld devices. Data can be beamed either as an individual record or all records at once. To Beam the data appropriate options have been provided. NOTE : While the beaming is in progress please do not disturb the devices from their path of communication. For the beaming operation to be done keep the devices in the range of 45 above to 30 below. Make sure that beam receive option is set to "On" in the in-built Prefs Application of Handheld.

  • Synchronization: Synchronizes the data from Handheld to the desktop database and vice versa. Synchronization can be done for individual team or for all teams.

Dr. James Turner – Chairman Dept., of Surgery, New York Hospital, Queens.

The New Protocol, Inc. has worked closely with our residents in developing IPIS. Now we find it very convenient and useful to use the PDAs to view/update patient information The manual process of maintaining spreadsheets is eliminated, by using IPIS database. Required reports can be printed as and when needed. The ability to capture procedure codes at the point of care is a great-added advantage.

Dr. Faisal Qureshi – Chief Resident Dept., of Surgery, New York Hospital, Queens.

Using IPIS, we have eliminated the need for maintaining spreadsheets manually, which saved a lot of valuable time to the residents. The ability to do synchronization from different floors of the hospital and the ability to modify patient data on the main database from remote locations saved us lot of time.

Tom Kemp – CIO, NYHQ

The New Protocol, Inc.’s technicians are knowledgeable and they coordinated well with our MIS personnel, in implementing their IPIS system.
