Medstreaming Launches Structured Operative Note Application

July 2, 2013 — Medstreaming launched its new Graphic Based Surgical Application for desktop and mobile platforms at the Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) May 30 – June 1, 2013 in San Francisco. The structured operative note application uses anatomical sketches to enable surgeons and interventionalists to easily generate structured reports based on graphical workflow.

Users can configure their own graphical templates describing different, repeatable, surgical patterns, significantly improving note generation. In addition, the Surgery App creates a surgical database that can be used for outcome analysis while providing seamless integration with different registries including cardiology, vascular, orthopedic, interventional radiology and other surgical communities. The application generates a full billing report that can be sent in a HL7 format directly to the inpatient billing modules or outpatient clearing houses.

The Surgery App fully integrates the structured sketches with digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) images. These images enable graphical sketches to drive the viewing workflow and look at historical images side-by-side, which are localized to certain anatomical segments. In turn, these segments can be fully linked with graphical workflow, which describes different elements of the procedure or surgery graphically. This can be especially helpful in placing stents, balloons and other implantable devices.

Physicians can automate a critical charting and documentation entry with the single stroke of a stylus. The next generation of product suites will focus on linking anatomical sketches with DICOM images.

Medstreaming offers specialty-based vascular, cardiovascular and women’s health work flow applications as a layer in the inpatient workflow on top of inpatient electronic medical records (EMR).
