GYAPOM E- Health Domiciliary App
|The Gyapom E-Health application tool is a paperless system that aids in reducing paperwork and time used in administrative work like filing, filling out forms and printing the paperwork. It is a web and mobile operated patient centred system. It is a continually developing app customized to the provider’s specific needs.|
Its main aim is addressing and delivering the issue of efficiency, accountability and patient safety to the health care industry. It benefits all domiciliary healthcare professionals, be it private or public, their clients/patients, their departments and their organization/s, including midwives, nurses, carers, doctors and anyone who visits patients in their homes for the purpose of care.
Patient Safety/Security: The patient's details and access codes where applicable are sent from the web system to the mobile system as if it were a text message. The field professionals need their security logins to access the system. This information is available to the user only after the secure login. This means that even if the mobile device is lost or stolen, this confidential information does not land in the wrong hands because of the security detail. The completed work is synced and saved to the web system for administrative purposes and future reference
Efficiency: The system application has GPS enabled as an option. This works ideally for the purposes of being able to ensure that patients are seen at the time they are meant to be seen. It also helps track, locate and reassign field professionals according to need. For example, if the carer has not arrived at the patient's house, the web system shows this and the web system operators can find out why this is the case and through the GPS system be able to reassign perhaps the nearest agent to go to the patient. This way they would not have to wait until the end of the day to find out that a patient was not seen when they should have been seen.
Accountability and Positive Patient Experience: The mobile system has the option of the signature strip on the device to show that a patient has been seen. In all the above mentioned, the system is intended to integrate all these and give a positive care experience not only to the patient/service user but also to the service providers. Clarification of any sort is retrievable from the system and provides the needed information for accountability. The system is designed in such a way that is not only customizable according to different needs but that it is also flexible to any change or needs.
