In the complex peri-operative eco-system, introducing positive change presents a tremendous challenge. We work with you to identify areas of low impact with high benefit. Our most common start points are theatre booking forms, acute whiteboards and operation notes.
“… the accuracy of the information entered by a consultant onto the [booking form] is fundamental to ensuring the management…of the patient prior to, during and post surgery”
- Health Improvement & Innovation Resource Centre (MoH, NZ) Building Teams for Safer Care Final Evaluation Report, July 2012
Our workflow approach means structured surgical information is captured directly from surgeons assuring data accuracy. scOPe uses surgeon’s common terms as the basis for reporting to many different audiences, putting you back in the driver’s seat when it comes to management and clinical analysis.
scOPe terms are tailored the preferences of surgical specailties and mapped to other coding systems such as ICD10, SNOMED, RACs MALT. This ensures surgeons get what they want while allowing reporting for other purposes using alternative coding systems.
Success with Structured Op Notes
Structured or 'synoptic' operating notes can be used to record detailed surgical procedure in a data format suitable for advanced analytics.
