Virginia Patent of the Month – February 2023
As healthcare technology continues to evolve, the importance of efficient and secure electronic medical records (EMRs) is becoming increasingly evident. The ability for healthcare providers to accurately record patient information and make that information easily accessible to caregivers has been a driving force behind the development of innovative technology in this field. One company leading the charge is Medicomp Systems, Inc., with their innovative caregiver interface for electronic medical records.
Traditionally, patient notes recorded by caregivers would include a range of information from physical symptoms and examination results to treatment plans and assessments of the patient’s condition. With the Medicomp Systems caregiver platform, these notes are recorded electronically, making them easily accessible to the caregiver at any time. The interface has a user-friendly design that allows the caregiver to select a finding from the patient note, which then displays any relevant historical data. This makes it easier for caregivers to quickly reference important information, which can lead to better and more informed care for the patient.
The Medicomp Systems caregiver platform includes several features that set it apart from other EMR solutions. One such feature is the ability to assign a color to a font, which can help identify a physical characteristic of the patient, such as an abnormal heart rate or high blood pressure. This feature allows caregivers to easily recognize patterns in a patient’s data and make more informed decisions about their care.
Another feature of the caregiver platform is the ability to generate a user interface that displays a first note data record and a second note data record, both of which contain the same data item. This feature allows caregivers to quickly compare data from previous encounters with the patient, which can help them make better decisions about the patient’s care.
Since its founding in 1978, Medicomp Systems has remained committed to the simple principle that innovative technology can drive the delivery of high-quality, clinically relevant data to enhance patient care and save lives. The company has spent 30 years designing solutions that mirror the way physicians think and work. The newly patented interface simplifies the process of reviewing patient data, providing needed patient information at the physician’s fingertips – in an easily skimmable format.
