ORBIS: Digitalisation and the path to connected care. How cloud-based EMRs are enabling a more integrated approach to healthcare.

ORBIS Launching at MedInfo 8-12 July. Visit Our Dedalus Booth 80 & 81 for a live ORBIS overview.

From smartwatches that can tell you if you’re in atrial fibrillation (and send an ECG to your physician) to AI-powered analytics that can discover disease, innovations in digital technology are helping us to be healthier. They’re also opening up new opportunities in connected healthcare.   

Digital technology and the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) represent the future of more efficient and effective healthcare. These innovations, along with rising public expectations for access to medical professionals and services, are driving the shift to modern digital healthcare systems that bring together services, organisations, processes and data. The benefits for healthcare institutions include streamlining processes and reducing costs, as well as transforming care delivery. 

Care for an individual is provided across multiple organisations and settings, often at the same time. No care provider is an island and their EMR must enable collaboration with partners in the health ecosystem – not create data silos and barriers. The next generation of EMRs must intelligently connect systems, data and people to enable the creation of new care ecosystems that are greater than the sum of their parts.  

These EMRs must support care plans across multiple conditions, organisations and settings, provide intelligent support for clinical decision-making and care execution, and provide real-time analytics at an individual patient and population level to support research, planning and outcomes measurement. The rigorous adoption of open international standards underpins this new model of digitally enabled care, where digital systems work together to maximise the effectiveness of health systems in improving the health of populations and the quality of care to individuals. 

Today, much of the frustration experienced by EMR users is the result of broken workflows – where clinicians are forced to jump between systems to complete a task. This adds time, complexity and clinical risk to the process. A holistic hospital information system is comprised of fully integrated modules, that cover all core clinical processes within the provider, digitally supporting medical and nursing pathways. Implemented and managed by a single partner, it offers significant benefits in performance, integration and support. A holistic approach to system selection keeps the number of subsystems as low as possible. 

Key criteria in selecting an EMR 

In choosing an EMR for your organisation, these are some attributes to consider:  

  • Processes: Is the EMR readily available to use at the point of care, with relevant data, insights and workflow? 
  • Device independence: Does it work seamlessly across desktops, tablets and smartphones? 
  • Integrated solution: Does it provide comprehensive support across care pathways? 
  • Customisation: Does it support localisation by enabling your team to create fully integrated forms, apps and workflows? 
  • Scalability: Can it easily scale to support EMR convergence across your health system? 

Strengthening connections with ORBIS  

ORBIS is a comprehensive and holistic hospital information system. It consists of more than 40 fully integrated clinical modules, that cover all processes within and around the daily business of healthcare providers. It digitally supports medical and nursing workflows and is fully integrated with our PAS solutions to support seamless managerial and administrative workflows. 

ORBIS covers all clinical and administrative use cases such as High-acuity care, regular care (including Nursing), CPOE, scheduling and care coordination and Patient Administration through our PAS solutions. The solution is delivered with pre-configured clinical content, workflow and forms based on recognised standards. Utilising multiple customisation tools, ORBIS can be further tailored to meet each customer’s individual needs. Reducing clinical risk and improving outcomes and efficiency are the drivers of our application design – be it on a desktop or a mobile application.
