e-Health

City residents need certain essential services for their health, happiness, and prosperity. Easy access to healthcare services and facilities is perceived as a key factor of citizens satisfaction. In a modern era, easy access is commonly associated with mobile or electronic access. Therefore smart cities provide more and more e-health services for their citizens.

One of the most common e-services is an electronic prescription. It is implemented in various cities/provinces/countries around the World. However, with a rise of modern smart technologies e-prescription can be improved to provide more user satisfaction.

We can implement this solution and integrate it with other smart infrastructure so that it is a holistic and fully personalized service consisting of:

  • a mobile app that can provide information about pharmacy in which drug is available and provide navigation thanks to google or apple services
  • NFC use that optimizes time in pharmacy
  • home delivery of drugs
  • teleconsultation for patients with medical professionals (no need for personal visits in pharmacies or healthcare facilities)

It will also provide municipalities with data and predictive analytics for a piece of true evidence-based management.

Pentacomp has been active in the field of e-Health in the last decade. We have built and implemented the domestic medical registries platform in Poland and domain systems including healthcare professionals’ education management and IT platform for drugs reimbursement. These solutions are under our maintenance since then.

Recently we have mastered another challenge by designing and developing digital services like e-Prescription and e-Referral on a countrywide scale.  E-Prescription is in production right now and e-Referral in the pilot implementation. Our teams have been using the agile approach in these projects from the very beginning.

We understand e-Health programs are extremely vulnerable to changes and the agile approach has been selected as the most suitable. Pentacomp has managed to implement both these services within 18 months. Previous attempts in this area in Poland had been failing for almost 10 years.

The platform for Electronic Medical Documentation

The digital transformation of medical care c is happening at a very different pace. Apparently, some regional institutions may be using electronic document solutions at the entry-level, others may have regional solutions that do not utilize the IHE XDS Profile, and so on. Therefore the biggest obstacle in building connections with the electronic platforms is the transformation from the current to a future architecture based on the standard IHE profiles.

Pentacomp takes advantage of the IHE profiles in order to provide solutions that can be easily implemented in different IT infrastructure setups. Our company can integrate different healthcare services in a constantly changing environment. The platform consists of Electronic prescription, electronic referral, electronic Medical Account:

Government becomes an instrument to better manage the financial reimbursement process. Healthcare system benefits from e-prescribing due to less time spent to complete the prescription and get the drugs.

What is important, e-prescription brings a lot of benefits for patients, such as:
