Platform Evolution: Improving Outcomes through Platform Features and Functionality
Our mobile development and educational design teams have taken a major leap by implementing a 1-year wish list of design and functionality features that make this platform truly a point-of-care clinician-patient collaboration. Each section within the @Point of Care™ platform is a CME activity. Within those sections, the following features are designed to enhance the interactivity and usability of this point-of-care tool:

    • Link between physician learning and healthcare outcomes – fully integrates learning and patient outcomes into the clinician workflow, allowing clinicians to adopt change daily and in practice
    • Perpetual needs assessment – tracking of clinician point-of-care use and needs facilitates future needs assessment measurement
    • Search – allows searching for a word or term throughout all of the content within the platform. Found words/terms will be highlighted as often as they appear within the text
    • Full drug database – accessible at the point of care and at the push of a button. Contains all of the evidence-based information needed for all drugs that are approved and available to be prescribed. Continually updated as new information from the manufacturer or FDA is received
    • Clinician personalization – each clinician uses the platform in the way best suited to them, accessing key content, their own bookmarked sections, their notes, and patient summaries.
    • Medical institution customization – opportunity for institution to include procedures and guidelines
    • Bookmarking and highlighting – give the learner the ability to “Create a book within a book” by tagging content to return to (and refer to on an ongoing basis)
    • Notifications – push notifications from clinician to patient
    • Social (clinician-to-clinician sharing within the app) – allows clinician to share content via e-mail and other social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter
    • Share Your KnowledgeTM – allows clinicians to post their thoughts and experiences for other learners to see
    • Chapter links – links to rich sources of media that make the content more engaging and interactive. Also links to other CME activities and resources
    • Polling questions – clinicians can answer a question embedded within a chapter by clicking on an answer choice and then see how their answers compare with those of other learners
    • Reference list – offers direct links to each of the journal abstracts should clinicians wish to investigate a source further
    • HIPAA compliant – de-identified patient data collected to measure level 6 and level 7 outcomes, and to monitor adherence and compliance in an effort to improve overall patient outcomes
    • Level 7 continuity of care record (CCR) and continuity of care document (CCD) – containing the most relevant and timely core health information about a patient including patient demographics, diagnosis, problem list, medications, allergies, and the care plan. Always available at the clinical visit, and all electronic touchpoints, and data analyses
    • Synchronization – companion app provides interoperability through the exchange of information and provides for clinician and patient outcomes measurement
    • Graphing of data points – dynamic, individualized data charted for simplified analysis
    • Patient-based resources – links provided to patient-based resources, giving clinicians the opportunity to download/access information and share it with their patients
