How MediCloud 360 Saves You Time

Executive Summary

MediCloud 360 allows family care physicians and specialists to share a patient's data in a real-time, always-on fashion between different EMR/EHR systems. MediCloud 360 has focused on two very important roles in your data exchange. One is to provide a HIPPA & HITECH compliant security solution, the other is to successfully provide the smart cloud interface used for data transmission. Once a patient's chart has been approved for sharing, both physicians can view any changes made to the patient's records in a real-time fashion. Imagine a world where a patient could go to any doctor in any state or country and not need to have their medical records transferred or sent because they would already be available to your new primary care physician. With MediCloud 360 this is now a reality!

The Referring Doctor

Many times, patient data such as labs, radiology reports, and doctor’s notes need to be combined and faxed or mailed over to a referring specialist. With MediCloud 360, this is completely unnecessary. Once a doctor is connected with MediCloud 360, any specialists that you grant access to in your network can receive the selected patient's data that is already in your existing EMR/EHR system. Simply locate your desired patient on the MediCloud 360 platform, select the correct specialist, electronically sign the referral, and click send. When a physician adds a new doctor or specialist to his or her network they will be greeted with an option that allows them to view any existing patients that might be in both doctors EMR systems. This means if the doctor and the specialist both had existing mutual patients it would prompt them to share the data for each patient all in one shot. This eliminates the need for a doctor to spend time going through possibly thousands of patients to see who is a shared patient and who isn’t.
 
Only the desired specialist will get notified by his/her choice of notification options which currently include taskbar screen popups, email, or cell phone text messages confirming that you have allowed access to that patients data . The specialist then has the option to view the report in read-only mode or import the data into his/her EMR software. This can be done upon request at any time and as often as you like to ensure that your shared patient data is always up to date.
 
Once the specialist has seen the patient, the referring doctor will be able to download and view the relevant patient data in order to see the outcome of that visit. The data that is obtained will be in real time and include data fields such as patients profile, specialist notes, labs, and radiology reports.

The Specialist/Doctor Receiving the Referral

Many times, a patient will show up at a specialist's practice and the specialist doesn't know why the patient is there. This wastes the doctor's time and frustrates the patient. There could be time and money wasted on duplicate labs and reports as well.

With MediCloud 360, the system notifies the specialist in real time when a doctor refers a patient over. The specialist can choose to be notified by screen popup in the lower right hand corner, email, cell phone text, or inside of a supported EMR software. The specialist is immediately granted access to the patient's data in either a real-time report or the specialist can import the data into their EMR software. In addition, the specialist will immediately have an electronically signed copy of the referral.
