Researchers from the Vision and Eye Research Unit (VERU) have teamed up with healthcare software solutions provider Medisoft in a knowledge transfer partnership to help test new patient records software.
Rather than simply recording data captured during medical consultations, the new software will assist the clinician in decision-making and measuring patient reported outcomes (PROMs).
VERU KTP Associate John Somner, who is heading up the tests, commented: "Electronic health records have typically promised a great deal but have failed to live up to expectations. Hopefully this project will allow a user centred design approach to develop an improved set of tools for glaucoma and uveitis patients."
It is anticipated that the new software will have a significant impact nationally and internationally where most clinicians lack an effective patient record system for these conditions.
