“An intelligent HIS system backed by quality technical support from a reliable brand, sooner or later, does emerge as an asset for a healthcare organization.”
Rapid advancements in technology constantly alter and enhance the way one lives and works. Computer information systems are slowly becoming an indispensable part of organizing, storing, and processing day-to-day information. Healthcare information systems that cater to the specific needs of a healthcare organization have come up, with the major ones being HIS, PACS, and LIS.
Hospital Information System (HIS) is the primary solution that helps an organization in its fundamental task of managing its medical, financial, and administrative data as effectively and in an organized way as possible. An ideal HIS should be a centralized solution catering to all departments and services in a hospital with flawless electronic record registration, should be user friendly for hospital staff, and flexible enough for any upgradations and changes as per the hospital requirements.
Allengers ‘Clarity’ is a HIS that has been designed keeping in mind these fundamental factors, besides others. From electronic medical records to self-generated graphical MIS analysis reports, a host of features from the core medical point of view to a smart business-oriented model have been incorporated. International standards have been adhered to in terms of HL7, NABH, and ICD-10.
The USP of Clarity is its user-friendliness, detail, and flexibility to accommodate individual requirements. Backed by a strong security mechanism, it also includes distinct features like 3-level user-rights allocation, third-party device integration, and value-added features like chat, helpdesk, document sharing, and alerts among others.
Modern-day laboratories employ high-end lab equipment that perform automated tests for Elisa, biochemistry, CBC, and hematology, the results of which are then procured, processed, and maintained by a Laboratory Information System (LIS). An LIS system also acts as a mediator, enabling automated transfer of data between these machines and an HIS system, reducing to a large extent the scope of human efforts and errors.
AllenPACS is a state-of-the-art picture archiving and communications system (PACS), designed to help the medical personnel digitally manage their diagnostic images and videos across their network. Ever since its arrival, the advantages of a AllenPACS system have been obvious, from a suitable alternative to hard copies, to universal accessibility of data, to complete radiology management. PACS is fully equipped with all the latest tools and features like 3D reconstruction, cine loop, Volume Rendering Tool (VRT), Shaded Surface Display (SSD), and Multi-Planner Reconstruction (MPR) among others. It can also be integrated with Clarity, forming a complete healthcare software solution.
These applications are the basis of modern-day telemedicine, where distance does not pose a hindrance to patients looking for immediate and quality assistance and consultation. They prove quite useful to healthcare organizations seeking to make their workplace uncluttered and paperless, with proper and organized patient histories and records. There are no more human errors, no more inventory losses, no more inaccurate bills, and no more lost records. Accurate, complete records and appointments are available just with the click of a button.
