Our Vendors, Nexxtâ„¢ were Finalists this year in the 'Innovation in 'Health & Science' category for Dynamic Pathways, 'Enabling Best Practice'.
This is a remarkable achievement.
With a team including 5 clinical editors and substantial input from subject matter experts, the Pathways team have updated over 100 of the 500+ pages of pathways available on the Auckland Regional HealthPathways Platform, making them relevant to your practice. This includes 50 clinical pathways pages.
You can also access patient education information on Health Navigator.
We are currently working to update Testsafe in order to provide enhanced browser capability. Once upgraded, Testsafe will support:
IE 8, 9, 10, 11
MozillaÂ® FirefoxÂ® Extended Support Release (ESR)
The functionality in Testsafe will remain the same, however there will be changes to the look and feel.
The upgrade is expected to take place February-March 2016. Please keep your eyes open for key communications in the coming months.
Testsafe Privacy & Security Framework.
Implementation of this framework will allow consumers to:
Opt off all documents in TestSafe
Opt off a set of particular service documents e.g.: Gastroenterology in TestSafe
Opt off a date range of documents in TestSafe â€“ e.g. May 2012
Have the ability to restrict documents to certain user groups e.g.: Community Pharmacy
This project will require not only changes to the TestSafe architecture, but will also require enhanced communication between healthcare providers and consumers.
GP PMS Single Sign On (SSO)
SSO will be instrumental for primary care users so they can seamlessly use Testsafe and Shared Care in patient context without needing to log in each time.
The CareConnect team has been working with PMS vendors in Auckland to ensure the development will result in a more streamlined and efficient workflow for clinicians.
If we are able to continue progressing at the current pace, SSO should be available end of March 2016.
Secure Messaging Update
All of the functional requirements for Secure Messaging have been agreed upon by the Clinical User Group and the prototypes is now being developed.
The agreed general principles the group are working within are:
Keeping it simple
Making it function like email
The changes will be implemented in the first 2016 release.
WDHB CARE Project
The CARE (Co-ordinated care, Assessment, Rehabilitation and Education) Project is a Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB) pilot undertaken in partnership with ProCare and Waitemata Primary Health Organisation (PHO).
The project aims to improve the health of people aged 75 and over and Maori and Pacific people aged 65 and over, who are at high risk of unplanned hospitalisation or other adverse outcomes, by providing a whole-system approach, integrating primary care and hospital services.
Under the CARE Project, five General Practices have been trained in Shared Care and are now up and running using the Assessment function.
