Practice Notifications (prompts created in CAT4) empower the practice and the clinician to influence health outcomes at point of care.
By identifying groups of patients at risk or of interest in CAT4 (Clinical Audit Tool), a notification rule is created based on the practice needs.
When a patient who meets the notification rule presents, Topbar will recognise the open patient record in the clinical system. The notification informs the clinician of any follow up activities required and supporting data.
This ensures that the practice is in control of its own patient recall functions and local primary care priorities.
Notifications are created at the practice to enable communication between all staff members and to ensure that opportunistic care is given based on the patients’ needs.
CLOSING THE LOOP ON PRACTICE POPULATION HEALTH
A practice staff member using CAT4 to identify patients at risk or business opportunities for the practice can now directly communicate with the clinician as those patients present. Due to the advanced mechanism of CAT4, notifications will be effective for all patients who meet the patient criteria.
PROMPTS THAT REFLECT YOUR PRACTICE NEEDS
Each practice is different and may be pursuing different chronic disease prevention and management programs – CAT4 supports this focus as a wide variety of criteria can be used to create notifications.
UNDERSTANDING OF CLINICAL WORKFLOWS
Notifications in the CAT Plus Prompts App, in Topbar, remain available for the GP to review at any time during the consult so they can be addressed at the appropriate time in the practice consultation. Topbar prompts will never interrupt a consultation or cover the screen, they are only indicated through a discrete number and can be viewed in detail with a mouse click.
DEFINE YOUR TARGET PATIENT GROUPS
Create notifications to be displayed in Topbar by defining particular patient cohorts in CAT4 and linking these to the patient records in the GP clinical desktop system.
