We have blogged a fair amount about Alpha TransForm but there is still
nothing like a non-marketing video showing a great example!
The Scenario - Visiting Nurse Application
Currently, the data collected would be the standard alpha numeric Info recorded on a form - but now imagine
the data collected would be able to automatically include: the time and duration of the visit.
bar-codes for any equipment left with the patient,
multiple audios of coughs, sounds or voice of the patient and output from modern stethoscopes
a list of all the drugs the patient is taking, with no pre-determination/limitation re the number of the drugs,
an unlimited capacity to record side effects for each drug with text, pictures (including zoom and annotation,) or audio,
GPS location and time stamp to confirm the nurse was there
What are the benefits of the TransForm digital app?
- The Doctor back at the hospital would have a much more complete report
re patient's medical condition and would also be able to easily compare changes over time
- Accounting would know where their equipment was and could bill more
accurately plus confirm the hours worked for payroll
- The data would be more timely and accurate and actions that needed to occur after the visit could take place faster
The overall impact would be better patient outcomes which obviously is good for the patient but also benefits the hospital in terms of higher reimbursements / revenue given the switch to "outcomes" based medicine
