INTRAHEALTH RELEASES INTEGRATED MOBILE & WEB APPLICATIONS FOR MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVES.
Intrahealth today released a platform of tightly integrated software products to support the growing need of mental health initiatives in Australia.
“com.unity” combines Intrahealth’s Profile practice management system with Accession web portals for Patients and External care providers and Profile iOS, a native mobile application for the iPad and iPhone.
The highly configured and ‘out of the box’ software solution is designed to meet the needs of a number of the mental health initiatives including headspace, ATAPS, Partners in Recovery and other mental health programs.
com.unity provides a case management centric approach that facilitates management of complex health needs through secure web access by patients, consumers and community care team providers. This application is a secure shared medical record managed by the organisation while supporting the patient / consumer consent process.
Intrahealth’s mobile application facilitates care management and planning activities for mobile health care providers so that they can manage patient care remotely. It supports both online and offline functions where mobile coverage may be varied.
While a number of Medicare Locals already utilise Intrahealth’s Profile to manage a number of their care delivery programs, com.unity extends on this by facilitating web based central care management.
“Our web and mobile solutions are real time and enable secure sharing of information whether care providers are within the physical environment or part of the extended network of care. Access and content of the portals are tightly controlled and based on security roles so care team providers only see information that is relevant, an Occupational Therapist will have distinct views to a Psychiatrist. The array of information that is visible is extensive. The flexibility and power of Profile has been extended to the web portal products and mobile solutions,” says Craig Longstaff, Intrahealth General Manager
com.unity also provides organizations with the ability to provide patients with real time access to engage in their care and directly with the healthcare providers. Such information could include the ability to book appointments online, enter forms such as K10 or DASS 21, view headline news about the organization, results, notes and patient information relevant to their condition. It also produces graphical representations of measures to display trends over time. The patient web portal provides the patient the ability to update their demographic information and add notes to their own record in a safe and secure manner. They can also communicate securely with health care providers and pay their accounts online.
“As with the web access for external care providers, the patient web access is highly configurable and allows Health care organisations to determine what information is relevant and accessible for the patient.”
“Intrahealth recognizes the overwhelming clinical benefits and organizational efficiencies with real time patient web access. While this is still relatively new to Australia, these benefits have been realised for a number of years by our customers and their patients in Canada” says Mr Longstaff
com.unity is targeted at Health System Providers, Medicare locals and Lead Agencies that require case management, longitudinal medical record care, web and mobile functionality to manage and integrate the growing number of programs within their environments. The solution has extensive reporting, privacy, security and audit controls throughout.
The Intrahealth platform is highly configurable and extensible with a long list of functions including a flexible centralised forms designer that enables bespoke forms to appear within the web application and mobile device.
com.unity can be adapted to suit a range of other programs that also require centralized care and multi-disciplinary services such as chronic disease management.
Intrahealth conforms to Australia’s eHealth initiatives and is PCEHR compliant.
