Clinical data capture and sharing capabilities are paramount to evidence-based clinical decision making. Just as you expect to have access to patient health information from face-to-face patient encounters, you should expect to have the same access to data for virtual visits. With GlobalMed’s eNcounter® virtual health software, a wide range of clinical data integration services are available to simplify virtual care workflows and collection of patient information for future use.
Dynamic Integration Management Services (DIMS)
Healthcare integration is time-consuming, expensive, and difficult. With ongoing maintenance, support, and costly configuration and code changes, integration becomes a burden. And furthering your interoperability goals seems impossible.
DIMS is an automated checking tool based on FHIR compatibility that detects EHR changes and auto-syncs those changes, ensuring data always ends up in the right place. There is no need for costly configuration or development changes to account for adjustments to the parent information system. You can expect your virtual health platform and other care delivery systems are in sync with the latest patient health information.
”DIMS dramatically reduces the cost and inefficiency of healthcare integration and makes virtual healthcare data accessible, useable, and actionable.
In six easy steps and based on your desired cadence, DIMS auto-checks the EHR for FHIR compatibility changes that ensures eNcounter and your systems are always in sync.
eNcounter® View and DIMS
eNcounter® View (eView) is a video-conferencing application that when integrated within the eNcounter® platform, can be used to connect participants for live stream video conferencing and enables real-time sharing of medical data including device reports, images, auscultation sounds, and live video streams from connected exam cameras and probes.
Vitals data collected during the consultation can also be viewed by a connecting user w. Powered by Real-Time Communications (RTC) technologies, that meet federal cybersecurity requirements, users can facilitate and participate in remote consultations as if they are in the room with the patient.
Users of eView can view patient data from the EHR via the patient summary interface. They can render the encounter summary and upload the data to the EHR in the same way eNcounter® platform users can. When a user from either side of the virtual visit initiates the upload of the data into the encounter summary, the other user is notified.
eNcounter® Data Integration
Data integration is key to quality care.
Basic telehealth video applications cannot exchange data with other provider systems leaving important health information out of the patient record and creating data gaps in other business functions such as reporting and billing.
The eNcounter® data integration solution solves this problem for a range of telehealth delivery models – exchanging data between a telehealth platform and a multitude of systems and between providers using different EHRs.
- Search patients to view a summary health record prior or during the visit
- Store and view virtual visit data from your PACS or EHR
- Capture clinical data, generate an Encounter Summary, and upload its contents to your configured EHR or PACS system
- All EHR-compatible, portable data will populate EHR fields, including Vitals, Chief Complaints, Visit Notes, etc.
How It Works
At Consultation Start:
When a user logs into eNcounter® and searches their EHR to render the Patient Summary, they will see the most updated data from the EHR and PACS (labs, meds, allergies, conditions, etc.)
When Consultation Ends:
Upon virtual visit completion, new data created during the consult flows out of the Encounter Summary into the EHR and PACS.
Always know where your data is headed.
EHR-compatible data is denoted with a green cloud icon. To prevent data loss, data that cannot be ingested by the configured EHR can be sent to a configured PACS system and is denoted with a blue document icon.
Where the data will go is determined by FHIR-enabled endpoint compatibility between your system eNcounter®.
Using our state-of-the-art exam cameras and software, share images in real-time with connected users.
Upload images to a connected endpoint such as a PACS or EHR system.
Render images from a configured endpoint in a DICOM-compliant, FDA-cleared PACS viewer made available to connected users.
