QIS Inform – On Point at the Point of Care
QIS Inform is a point of care application that works directly at the patient level in Allscripts TouchWorks EHR to provide actionable identification of gaps in care. QIS Inform notifies the provider and clinical staff of gaps in care for each patient through a unique color-coded icon built into an easy-to-use interface indicating the status of the patient’s quality metrics. A red signal indicates the presence of measures where the patient is not meeting the goal. An orange signal indicates measures needing immediate clinical action and/or documentation is missing. Yellow indicates measures that are not failing nor past due to date but will be past due in the near future. Finally, a green signal indicates clinical quality measures for the patient currently being met and/or passing. Additionally, each color-coded signal also is labeled with a number designating the exact number of measures in each status.
Integration with Allscripts TouchWorks EHR
With QIS Inform, you can monitor gaps in patient care by referencing the built-in signal icon which appears throughout the TouchWorks EHR (TWEHR) application via the TWEHR Patient Banner. Further details about the patient’s measures, along with streamlined workflows, can be gained by accessing the EagleDream Health (EDH) Inform patient profile via single sign-on buttons from the TWEHR Clinical Desktop or Note Authorizing Workspace screens.
The EDH Inform patient profile provides a global view of all Gaps in Care for the patient in context plus demographics, clinical details (problem list, lab results, vital signs, etc.), and the attributed primary care physician. The dashboard also allows the clinical staff and providers to close gaps by entering updated result details which immediately flow back into the TWEHR system, updating both the QIS Inform signal icon and TouchWorks EHR.
Point of Care That Integrates with Population Health
With its integration in Allscripts TouchWorks EHR, QIS Inform provides a bi-directional data exchange between the EDH Inform population health application and the EHR. This ability to identify specific gaps in care for individual patients while offering an unprecedented view of your overall patient population is a game-changer. Incorporating QIS Inform into your daily workflow provides critical actionable data to close gaps in care for individual patients while empowering care managers to proactively monitor overall population health.
