One of the fastest growing areas of eHealth is that of online enquiry into GP and pharmacy records. CareInsight is a leading tool for performing online enquiries and over the past year has really proved its worth. As you can see from the graph below, the look-up numbers are climbing very fast, with nearly 1,000 successful queries performed in November alone. CareInsight is now installed in the Hawkes Bay, Nelson, Gisborne and right across Northland (including hospital and after hours facilities in Whangarei, Dargaville, The Bay of Islands and Kaitaia). The sheer usefulness of the CareInsight system has sparked considerable interest from both New Zealand and Australia; where we will begin offering services in the new year.
New CareInsight Products – Soon To Be Released
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering three distinct CareInsight services during 2013:
- CareInsight Pharmacy – providing the ability for pharmacies to ask for information they need for long term care of patients
- CareInsight Population Health – Allowing access to information across multiple systems in order to provide detailed and up-to-date information about a patient or group of patients, and;
- CareInsight ED – The initial CareInsight system now widely used in ED and after hours centres.
Both CareInsight Pharmacy and CareInsight Population Health are being designed to meet the specific needs of users and to ensure that the privacy principles set out in the CareInsight Privacy Impact Assessment are adhered to.
