The availability of standardised reporting of chronic and complex conditions across primary health care sectors is now achievable with the release of MedicalDirector Insights.
Using the APCC Quality and Safety Indicators and Indigenous nKPIs, MedicalDirector’s new product release ‘MedicalDirector Insights’ provides their users with the ability to monitor improvements over time for patient cohorts using more than 200 quality indicators.
MedicalDirector Insights now facilitates the direct submission of indicators to the Improvement Foundation’s online secure quality improvement portal. It eliminates the need for users to purchase or have to rely on traditional data extraction tools, delivering cost efficiencies to the health sector.
MedicalDirector Insights provides reports and visualisations for users on key information including clinical indicators, the number and type of services and activities undertaken and a range of filtering options. It will also assist clinicians to understand the health of their practice population and manage their health population more efficiently.
The graphs, charts, and reports that are essential for analysing population health within MedicalDirector Insights are all consistent with the Australian Primary Care Collaboration (APCC) Quality and Safety Indicators and nKPIs specifications as defined by Improvement Foundation, Australia’s leading health care quality improvement organisation.
“We’re delighted to collaborate with MedicalDirector on the release of MedicalDirector Insights which provides MedicalDirector users with a leading edge and reliable solution to better manage chronic disease. MedicalDirector has demonstrated considerable leadership and a delivered a major milestone in clinical software system development”, said Mr Colin Frick, CEO, Improvement Foundation. “We expect that other clinical software system vendors will now follow MedicalDirector’s lead and introduce population health functions with nationally consistent measurement.”
MedicalDirector Insights is now available. MedicalDirector users are encouraged to use MedicalDirector Insights in conjunction with the Improvement Foundation quality improvement portal where general practices can access quality improvement tools and benchmark reports on all APCC Quality and Safety Indicators and nKPIs. MedicalDirector users can now prepare for possible changes to the PIP and commence benchmarking their work with other general practices across Australia.
