Study the Operations, Medical / Clinical Record Keeping and Prepare Functional Specifications for Clinical System for Oncology
Agency : Record Keeping, Medical Record, Clinical System, Oncology
Objective : The main objective of
the project was to understand the operational
process of a functioning oncology
centre followed by development of functional specifications for the clinical process documentation with clinical backup. As a part of zero stage of
implementation cycle which consists of process change identification workshop, detailed
implementation planning and functional specification document
Background : Not Available
Methodology : For process
flow analysis a 150 bedded,
state of art leading oncology centre at Hyderabad was chosen. Operational process flow, with step by step data capturing at every stage
with documentation was studied.
Operational process flow, with step by step data capturing
at every stage with documentation was studied. Both qualitative and
quantitative method was used for the study.
Findings : Various stake
holders at Cancer
Hospital were interviewed. Following, an elaborate
document of their existing process flow was
made which was further sent to parent hospital for approval and authentication.
After analyzing the scope of the product and various work rounds available voids in data capturing were identified.
A functional specification document
was prepared for the technical
team consisting of what information has to be captured, which field
shall capture it, who shall capture
it, which all other areas it will be displayed in, masterís for the same were created after extensively. Data captured were tabulated and a sample copy of the same was created and added on to the existing report. Completing the
stage zero of the project the details were sent to the parent hospital
for their approval
post which it shall
be sent to the technical team for development. Another important
part that was deeply looked
into was capturing and presentation of this
data according to existing standards in the healthcare.
Recommendations : Not Available
to understand the operational process of a functioning oncology centre followed by development of functional specifications for the clinical process documentation with clinical backup
