When a patient comes to the hospital for an endoscopy examination, an order is created in the EHR. Our software ensures that this order is visible as a work list on the modality. As a doctor, you select the patient to be treated in your work list. During the diagnostic examination, you can take photos and/or video clips using the scope buttons. These images are automatically stored in RVC Clinical Repository. After the endoscopy examination, you can assess the images in our viewer. It is also possible to place annotations, such as texts and arrows, on the images. Because the images are stored per visit, you can easily view and compare images from previous visits. After authorisation, data cannot be changed without formal de-authorisation and the content, if desired, is available to other healthcare providers.
As soon as results of the patient are available, it is possible to send an automatic message to the EHR system. These are visible with one mouse-click in the EHR system.
In addition to comparing and assessing images, our Registration & Clinical documentation module allows you to create a report directly where images can be added. With the help of a knowledge tree structure that is based on the MST3.0 standard, you can quickly create a high-quality report with your research. It is possible in the report to indicate graphically where the images were taken during the investigation. The report is added to the patient file and can also be easily sent to the GP thanks to extramural interfaces (such as Edifact).
In collaboration with the User Group MDL (for gastroenterology), RVC has defined standard reports for, among other things, colonoscopy, gastroscopy and ERCP examinations. These standard reports follows the guidelines for endoscopy examinations in the Netherlands. This allows you to easily compare information with other hospitals.
Our software optimally supports doctors in their workflow with the help of filtered worklists. You can see at a glance which patients come for examination, which studies need to be assessed or have received feedback from the Pathology department.
RVC provides the functionality for the colon cancer screening program, including a link to the national ColonIS system of ScreenIT. The standard reports for quality registers such as DICA and VREST are also supported by RVC Clinical Assistant and can be delivered online automatically.
RVC Track & Trace module
The Track and Trace module contains complete functionality for tracking and tracing of endoscopes (which patient, when, with which scope, by which doctor has been treated). It keeps track of whether the scope has gone through the correct disinfection process and whether it can be used safely according to the SFERD standards.
Our pathology interface is particularly interesting for MDL departments, as it eliminates manual operations. During an endoscopy examination, biopsies are taken, which are put in jars. Each jar gets a T-number. For each jar you can make an order request in RVC Clinical Assistant for pathology. Our software then receives an order number from the pathologysystem, which you can print on a sticker and attach to the biopsy jar. The moment the jars arrives at the pathology department, the jars are already known to them. This simplifies work processes, increases patient safety due to the closed-loop system and eliminates many manual operations.
As soon as the biopsy has been examined at the pathology department, the result is sent digitally to the endoscopy department. The results of the lab are mentioned in the study in RVC Clinical Assistant. Our software can also automatically change the status from 'waiting for result PA' to 'result PA is in'. The results of the examination will then appear in your worklist. As a doctor, you can go to the results of the pathologist in RVC Clinical Assistant to write a conclusion for the research performed. Once you authorize the conclusion, you can choose to send it to the doctor and/or have the patient come back for a follow-up appointment.
The RVC software is vendor-independent. RVC has successfully connected research equipment from many different manufacturers. If a device is not yet known to us, we will do our utmost to realize the interface with our software for doctors.
