Chronic Disease ManagementChronic disease management is more than just treating a disease. For many patients chronic disease can impact on all aspects of their lifestyle. AxSys not only deliver applications that assist in monitoring, managing and assessing the disease, we recognize that chronic disease requires a multi-disciplinary team approach, with the patient at the head of the team, and deliver solutions which provide support across the life cycle of a patient's care, from provider to hospital and home.
A fundamental aspect of improving the delivery of care in chronic disease management is the facilitation of multidisciplinary collaboration and the effective sharing of information. The Collaborative Care model, which also involves patients in their own self-care, is widely recognised as a method of delivering consistent, high quality healthcare resulting in improved outcomes for patients.
The provision of smart tools to deliver the right information at the right time and place to the right people is an important aspect of the face-to-face encounter in the traditional healthcare model. Our solutions have been designed to support this model of healthcare delivery, underpinned by standards in data management and the ability to integrate effectively with existing healthcare IT systems, and:
- Provide mechanisms for sharing clinical information across disparate clinical specialties and applications, while retaining clinical data standards.
- Fully support the real world environmental consideration of working with multiple organizations.
- Support automated multiple auditing and reporting requirements, with input and output information being mapped to an individual requirement.
Chronic Disease Home Care Management
To support chronic disease management, it is essential to ensure that patients are totally involved in their own care through continual self-assessment and monitoring. The AxSys solution provides the platform and tools to extend care into the home.
We offer innovative solutions for remote assessment and monitoring of patients, through either a secure web based Patient Portal or via a telephone based questionnaire delivery system that is simple, intuitive and fully interactive, requiring only a touch tone telephone. Patients who require monitoring for any reason, including drug compliance and chronic disease management, can now have 24-hour contact with their care provider.
Our remote monitoring solutions are fully integrated with the multi-disciplinary care record. This means that they can be set up to interrogate and write back into patients' case notes so that questionnaires can be delivered dynamically for each patient, based on data in their individual notes.
