Medical Web Technologies Adds 'High Risk Patient Module' to One Medical Passport
Medical Web Technologies, a Web-based medical information solutions provider, has announced it has added a new module that identifies high-risk surgical patients to its One Medical Passport solution, according to a Medical Web Technologies news release (pdf).
One Medical Passport allows patients to complete their own preoperative medical history securely via the Internet, according to a company news release. The information then becomes available to nurses, anesthesiologists and registration staff, as well as the patient's surgeon.
The new High Risk Patient Module automatically screens for patients during the preoperative process and "red flags" those that are considered high risk based on the type of conditions specified by the ambulatory surgery center or hospital using One Medical Passport, according to the release.
The ability to identify high-risk patients in advance of a procedure can help reduce and eliminate delays and cancellations.
"Eliminating day-of surgery cancellations enables facilities to streamline patient flow and avoid needless and costly delays," said Stephen Punzak, MD, founder and CEO of Medical Web Technologies, in the release. "Identifying a high-risk patient far in advance of his or her procedure allows for appropriate preop planning to occur so that the patient's case isn't delayed or cancelled. With advance warning, issues can be easily managed and delays and cancellations avoided."
