Leading edge technology
The BOSSnet software suite is built on leading edge technology providing a highly adaptable platform, loaded with inbuilt and user generated functionality to maximise data capture, interoperability and usability.
As well as the traditional capabilities of a fully functional EMR, BOSSnet provides numerous unique tools to deliver real advantages for client usability and effectiveness. Some examples are highlighted below.
BOSSnet delivers sophisticated interoperability and standardisation in line with the MyHR objectives. BOSSnet is a leading contributor to the MyHR repository, and is tightly integrated with the MyHR record, allowing a seamless view of the patient’s MyHR documents within BOSSnet.
The coding and DRG audit process facilitated by BOSSnet, results in significant improvements to ABF reimbursements. One client boasting that since the introduction of BOSSnet, there has been a 185% increase in the coding and DRG audit yield which has led to significant additional revenue! Electronic coding queries enable Health Information Managers (HIMs) and Clinical Coders to send eForm documentation queries directly to Clinicians via email. The clinician can then launch directly into the patient record to review and respond to the query. Information added to the patient record post discharge or post clinical coding can also be easily identified allowing the HIM or Coder to go back and review the patient episode
Notifications and secure messaging
BOSSnet can automatically notify GPs and other referrers when their patient arrives in the Emergency Department, or is discharged. This is done via a secure messaging application which uses PKI encryption and is also used to deliver other clinical information to community clinicians and referrers.
Advanced Notification Events
Configurable events within BOSSnet allow sites to setup up complex processes based on real-time events, such as:
- Closed loop order entry, results review and acknowledgements
- Real time notification of abnormal patient results
- Automated workflow based patient admission or document events
- and many more.
Order Entry and Referrals
BOSSnet’s Order Entry module can be used as a comprehensive CPOE tool, allowing direct paperless order entry, for pathology, radiology and all forms of services. Sophisticated feedback tools reduce unnecessary or duplicate service requests, a costly preventable problem. Many BOSSnet sites have created paperless internal referral processes, using BOSSnet for clinicians to generate a referral and the service to manage them.
The BOSSnet eForm design environment is simple to use and allows users in your organisation to build electronic data entry forms to capture and display clinical data. eForms allow your site to transition from the paper based, to digitised to fully paperless, at a pace that suits your organisation and clinicians.
Patient SMS Appointment reminders
BOSSnet SMS messaging is a powerful tool that enables you to send SMS reminders to patients of upcoming appointments, improving patient attendance and outpatient flow. SMS can be used for many notification purposes inside of BOSSnet.
Paper episode tracking tool
Paper episode tracking allows health information service staff to identify whether paperwork is physically in the department or not, and whether it has been scanned or not. It is an impressive tool that allows you to monitor scanning
KPI’s such as:
- Date first received, date first scanned
- Discharge to receipt time, discharge to scan time, and receipt to scan time.
