ClinView is an application for hospital intranets/internets. ClinView provides web-based creation, searching and retrieval of patient
medical records at a hospital and its affiliated clinics. ClinView can provide access to all varieties of medical records: those transcribed
by a transcription service from physician-dictated notes and stored in a database; those created directly online, using ClinView; or those
loaded from other sources (e.g. medical equipment) into a database.
Physician Access From Anywhere, Automated Workflow
Physicians can use Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, or AOL, from any hospital computer to access the hospital's
"ClinView Home Page." They can then use simple point-and-click commands to create and process medical reports online; review,
re-work, and sign, transcribed notes; authorize alternate signers; and get instant access to all ``Draft" pre-signed notes to manage critical patient situations.
Medical Records Department Capabilities, Integrates With Other Systems
ClinView automates the work of Medical Records departments by
providing a special set of reports through the web just for them. Once a medical record has been electronically signed ClinView only
allows the medical records department to authorize "unsigning" and modifications to the signed record. ClinView logs all changes to a
signed record. ClinView can be integrated with other hospital systems like laboratory, radiology, etc. to build a complete web-accessible, online medical record.
Security, Confidentiality, User Priviliges
Security and confidentiality of medical records is protected through a
number of ClinView features. User access is strictly controlled through passwords. Furthermore, ClinView maintains individual user
profiles and assigns users to different classes, giving them differing access and change privileges. Each user at log-on is presented with a
customized ``desktop." commensurate with his/her privileges. Just like the act of "signing out" a paper medical record ClinView tracks
and logs each user's access to any medical record. If they have change privileges, ClinView requires re-entering of passwords for each change and logs any changes made.
ClinView works under Windows NT, but can interface to any SQL database (Sybase, Oracle, Informix, DB2, MS SQL Server) on UNIX, Windows NT or another platform which holds transcribed
patients records. ClinView can be customized to individual hospital's needs.
