Introduction

N

Software Solution

CRiS CARE is a software solution, for hospitals and medical facilities, which supports clinical workflows and high-quality Clinical Documentation with structured Clinical Coding to facilitate Activity Based Funding

N

Electronic Medical Record

CRiS CARE ensures that the Electronic Medical Record is immediately available to all staff, anywhere, and is tightly coupled to the patient journey and generated seamlessly in real-time as part of the clinician’s normal workflows

N

Intuitive Interface

CRiS CARE supports the busy clinician’s requirement for an intuitive interface that anticipates their needs and facilitates their tasks. Requirement for support and training should be zero. It’s time for healthcare to enjoy the technical advances of our information age

Accurate, real-time clinical documentation is at the very heart of safety and quality, not to mention efficiency, funding and research. What are the costs of substandard documentation, for any health care organisation?

Objective

  1. Create Medical Records that are legible, complete, accurate and accessibleI. Create Medical Records that are legible, complete, accurate and accessible
  2. The solution should also minimise delays at every stage of the patient’s journey & free up clinical time to spend on patient interaction

Solution Overview

A new Clinical Workbench solution; 

  • Designed by clinicians
