Part of the services we provide to doctors includes access to Atlas Software. Atlas allows doctors to create comprehensive MBS compliant visit notes with little-to-no time expenditure. The software will search the clinical database for obvious items to add into the patient’s notes, with no additional work required.
Example case: a patient is coming for a follow-up with what the doctor diagnosed as URTI (bacterial). The doctor ordered pathology to confirm and will prescribe Amoxil, because the pathology came back positive.
- Write a line in the history section: “12/03/2020 – Dr. Findacure: Suspected URTI, bacterial. Pathology ordered.”
- Atlas will interpret the results from pathology and write them into the history, e.g., “Gram positive stain – Detected”
- The pathology was ordered at the patient’s previous visit, so it will write this into the Actions section: “Discussed results of pathology with patient.”.
- If the patient has not been prescribed the drug in their history, then the following will be written into the actions section: “Discussed risks and precautions of new drug, no known allergies, follow-up on patient tolerance.
There are many other features in Atlas that make note writing quick and easy
- Interpretation of the following transcript events:
- Blood pressure
- BMI (automatically calculates BMI, if weight and height are present)
- Ability to compile a full history of consultations and pathology/imaging requests and results:
- The doctor has full control over the verbosity and length of the history recorded in the notes as well as the details included in the notes
- Atlas records the patients’ current allergy/reaction history
- Automatic details that cover what doctors discuss in the consultation, but may not be written in their notes:
- If a patient’s blood pressure/BMI has improved since the last reading, Atlas will record an appropriate observation
- If a prescribed drug has a specific precaution associated with it, Atlas will record an appropriate counter, i.e., if the precaution is: “This drug causes birth defects.”, the following will be recorded in the notes if the patient is female “Have discussed with patient that this drug causes birth defects”.
- If the doctor’s patient is currently smoking or drinking heavily, the following is recorded: “Counselled the patient on the risks associated with smoking, urged cessation”.
- Keyboard shortcuts which help to easily include notes, e.g., highlighting some text from the history (say, “sleep apnoea”, and hitting ctrl+d creates an entry “Discussed sleep apnoea with the patient.”
