CUSTOMER: Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli IRCCS

CHALLENGE: Securely facilitate interaction between clinicians and patient families through a secure and remote feedback loop while reducing in-person hospital visits during the pandemic

OUTCOME: A solution fully integrated into the clinician’s workflow in TrakCare makes it easy to pull up the latest patient information and take further action, including the initiation of a patient telehealth consultation via videoconference.

Phase 1 is Live

Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli IRCCS in Rome recently went live with phase one of a new patient portal specifically designed for children with chronic diseases, built on InterSystems Personal Community. The new system facilitates the interaction between clinicians and patient families through a secure and remote feedback loop, which enables a more efficient care process by reducing in-person hospital visits, especially during the current pandemic.

A clinician enrolls the patient in the program and then identifies specific online questionnaires and video tutorials, which are available on-demand to the families. The parents of the child may log in with their credentials to access these resources from the patient portal, enabling them to discuss their children’s care live with the physicians and learn more through video tutorials. The questionnaire responses become available in TrakCare for the clinician to review, aiding in the creation of and updates to patient treatment plans.

The solution is fully integrated into the clinician’s workflow in TrakCare, making it easy to pull up the latest patient information and take further action, including the initiation of a patient telehealth consultation via videoconference.

Phase 2

Phase two of Gemelli’s patient portal, expected to go live in the coming weeks, will include outpatient visit reports and the incorporation of radiology reports and images.

In the future, enhancements will provide patient access to the full health record. The 1,500-bed private university hospital went live with TrakCare in October 2019 and has successfully navigated challenges associated with the pandemic through responsiveness and innovation.

Surprisingly, the top three indicators of life expectancy in the U.S. for a given population are per capita nursing home residency, mental health challenges, and prevalence of tooth loss¹. The income level, access to care, stress, and other social factors behind these indicators have a greater impact on health than genetics or access to healthcare services². However, historically, social determinants of health have not received enough attention in clinical care.
Integration Across the Delivery Network (IDN)
The developers at this large U.S. integrated delivery network (IDN) have no patience for integration engines that mindlessly do one job and one job only. Since replacing an old engine with InterSystems integration technology over a decade ago, the IDN has seen InterSystems solutions solve multiple problems to power growth, save employee time, and reduce costs. In one project alone, InterSystems saved them $100,000. Other examples of benefits delivered using InterSystems integration technology include:
