Mobile-enabled InterSystems TrakCare supports better healthcare decision-making


Mobile user interface designed to improve electronic medical record adoption and patient safety, speed clinical workflows, and improve the patient experience

InterSystems has announced that its TrakCare unified healthcare information system has added a mobile, touchscreen-enabled user interface to optimise the user experience and other enhancements that support better healthcare decision-making.

TrakCare’s mobile-enabled user interface supports streamlined electronic medical record (EMR) workflows and delivers context-rich, concise information wherever and whenever it is needed.

Clinical notes can be created with a few swipes and taps, images and barcodes captured via camera and additional information captured via voice.

Using mobile devices at the point of care can support doctors and nurses to make better decisions and allows them to capture and access accurate data more easily and quickly. This promotes EMR adoption, supports patient safety, speeds up clinical workflows, creates a better patient experience, and allows other carers to make better decisions.

InterSystems worked in close collaboration with panels of practicing clinicians to redefine EMR best practices and create the mobile-enabled tasks for the new version of TrakCare, including medication prescribing, medication administration, nursing rounds, and laboratory results.

Flexible deployment capabilities further ease the transition to the mobile, touchscreen-enabled user interface.

Customers can run the existing TrakCare user interface in parallel with their existing EMR and choose a migration plan best suited to their needs.

The mobile-enabled user interface, like all of TrakCare, is 100% web-based, eliminating the need to install and maintain additional software or apps.

And everyone uses the same high-performance system, increasing security and reducing administration overheads and total cost of ownership.

TrakCare’s flexible deployment options – on-premise, or as a hosted or managed service – provide additional benefits.

A range of other enhancements also support better healthcare decision making:

  • With TrakCare and InterSystems HealthShare built on the same unified health informatics platform and now sharing the same Clinical Viewer, clinicians can have a consistent view of patient data stored within and beyond their EMR, tailored to their device
  • With TrakCare Lab Enterprise deployed as a unified module within TrakCare, clinicians have immediate access to test results and supporting images from within the EMR, wherever they are
  • A new TrakCare Remote capability lets clinicians work with the EMR remotely without internet access to support healthcare delivery in isolated regions and synchronise changes when back at base

According to Zebra Technologies’ global 2022 Hospital Vision Study, the percentage of nurses using mobile devices at the bedside will grow from 65% in 2017 to 97% in 2022. Similar increases in mobile device usage is expected among doctors, pharmacists and lab technicians.
