Development of Health Monitoring Module for Assisted Living Software
A US company providing hospitals, ancillary providers and assisted living organizations with operational technology and electronic health record solutions to collect, process and analyze clinical data including patient, treatment and medication information.
The Customer needed a health monitoring module to expand their software for assisted livings. The solution was to help the caregivers track patients’ health status during their stay at the facility.
Our team divided the health monitoring module functionality on two groups – vitals and test results.
The vitals submodule includes the following elements:
- Blood pressure
- Meal intake
- Bowel movement
- Fluid intake and output
Upon each patient examination the record with certain vitals is created. As healthcare data is aggregated from different modules of the software, each record is marked with a code of its source – M for manual entry, MD for medication delivery, S for confirmed services (shower / bath assistance, housekeeping, meal monitoring / escort to meals and more), I for incident.
Moreover, the system processes the aggregated information to notify the providers about the negative changes in resident’s health. The caregivers receive the alerts about the significant weight change, low meal or fluid intake, low bowel movement and more.
The test results submodule includes records on blood glucose, INR and pulse oximetry. The results are also marked with the sources similar to the previous submodule.
The resulting health monitoring module allows to efficiently track the health status of patients via aggregation of vitals and test results, healthcare data analytics and automated alerts to notify the personnel about the negative changes. System users can also create reports for each particular resident to get an overview and evaluate his or her state of health during the period of monitoring.
