Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 I-EQUIP INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC QUERY AND UPDATE INFORMATION FROM PATIENTS Post-consult information asymmetry between patient and doctor:During a face-to-face consultation with a doctor, there are certain questions from the patient that are not brought up because of various reasons(e.g. patient cannot think of all necessary questions on the spot, or is uncomfortable with personal contact). In effect, by the end of consultation,these questions remain unaddressed. PROBLEM A cross-platform application software that reduces post-consultation information asymmetry between health professionals and patients SIGNIFICANCE Unaddressed patient concerns may result in poor compliance to medications,unimproved health outcomes, and/or erratic health-seeking attitudesand behaviors.A study (Lim, 2007) has found thatamong elderly patients,effective communication with the doctorresults in a statistically significantimprovement of patients use of medical care. This proposal seeks to bring a technological solutionto the establishment of such effective communication. PROPOSEDSOLUTION! I-EQUIP CONSULTATION record patientand consultinfo EHR Store info Cloud Back-up I-EQUIP Patient query via SMS Doctor's response via SMS Database for queries System Design and Technology Infrastructure System Features - Compatible with health professionals desktop computer, laptop, and/or handheld device-Compatible with patients mobile device capable of SMS-Links inquiry received from the patient to the patients previously accomplished electronic health record, for easy review by the health professional-English and Filipino-capable dictation function for health professionals to construct their responses-Prioritization function > Orders patient cases according to urgency of condition > Orders patient questions accordingto importance-Schedules reminders for health professional to respond to patient messages-Knowledge database for storing and retrieving data onpreviously resolvedpatient inquiries (to be made availableafter 6 months of system implementationin order to collect ample data) Project Implementation Plan PHASE 2: Training and Mastery of the System Participating health professionals will be oriented on the system, instructedon the use of its features (e.g. dictation, prioritization), and allowed to testand evaluate it. Findings will be used to revise the system before pilot testing. PHASE 3: Pilot Test For a 6-month period, participating health professionals will orient all incoming patients on how they may use the system. Ideally, patients and health professionals will become accustomed to its use. PHASE 4: Management, Performance and System Evaluation After the course of their treatment, patients will be asked to evaluate the system. Participating health professionals will do the same by the end of the pilot test period. PHASE 5: Continuous Improvement and Creation of Knowledge Database Improvements to the system will be made based on Phase 4 evaluations. Evaluation-revision cycles will repeat every 6 months. An organized database will be made using the data gathered over the 6-month trial period and over continued system usage. PHASE 1 PHASE 2 PHASE 3 PHASE 4 PHASE 1: Initiation and Installation A sample of participants will be selected from a pool of volunteer healthprofessionals. The I-EQUIP system will then be installed in their devices. GROUP 5: Brutas, Carandang, Iglesia, Rafael, Wong PHASE 5 Project Implementation Plan
