We design and build connectivity unique to each manufacturers’ devices/software. This approach, often referred to as a device driver, enables updates to existing device connectivity and new device connectivity independent of QML version updates thus meeting market and customer needs in a timely and very efficient manner. As with all of the other TELCOR QML interfaces, device interfaces run without operator intervention every minute of every day.
Capturing manual patient and liquid QC tests is a critical component to a complete POCT program. TELCOR WebMRE™ is completely customizable: displays for charting tests only an operator is certified to perform rather than the entire menu; reports results through the same LIS/EMR interface as other automated devices; captures data that patient-centric applications do not such as reagent lots, expiration dates and QC lots.
TELCOR QML Alerts and Status provide monitoring of QML interfaces. Alerts, once configured by the end user, provides email or text alerts when unexpected events occur. Status provides on-demand, real-time information of the application’s interfaces. Alerts and Status function independently, either or both are available for use.
Real Time Dashboard
Tiles are available from the dashboards tab and present a data view reflecting the status of the application. The tiles view serves as the home page and provides an alternative to navigating the system using the menu and ribbon bars. Although the tiles automatically refresh every five minutes, instantaneous updates are available by clicking the icon on the Dashboards tab. Each tile provides the status summary of daily POCT workflow areas.
Review only patient and/or QC results that have been specifically configured for review/edit prior to releasing to the LIS/EMR. These could be results with flags from devices, ranges configured within TELCOR QML or additional information such as oxygen delivery required for reporting. These results are automatically held in a queue for easy access.
Every point of care program is looking for the ability to improve efficiency and decrease errors when managing operator certification and training information. TELCOR QML provides both by offering flexibility in certification configurations as well as a single point of documentation for all point of care tests whether connected or not. Configurations for the certification process can be defined to meet standards per facility, location and/or device type. QML also allows for certifications to be managed manually or through an auto-recertification process. This process will re-certify operators automatically after meeting the defined requirements, eliminating the need to manually review and certify each operator.
Metrics & Statistics
Eliminate manual collection, collating and counting with the most extensive and flexible reporting functionality offered in the POCT market. Data to be included in the reporting views is selected through the extensive query (filter) capability and formatted based on the report/view selected. Reporting categories include utilization, operator and device performance, QC patient and turnaround times. We architected these reports so each could easily be enhanced independent of the other or a new report added to the menu without requiring a TELCOR QML version update, whereby delivering customer and market needs timely and effectively.
Unlimited Data Mining
Whether using the TELCOR QML internal login and encrypted passwords or integrated Windows session credentials, QML can be configured for access to only operators, devices, locations and results for which each QML operator has responsibility. When using QML in a multi-disciplinary setting (e.g. laboratory and respiratory and ambulatory) or multi-facility setting, access can be limited to functions and data applicable to each QML operator.
Everything, Everywhere Point of Care™
Grant TELCOR QML access to those appropriate (e.g., point of care, respiratory, LIS, ambulatory) from anywhere via a Citrix® or an Internet Explorer® distribution mechanism. QML security roles and data access then determine who has access to which area and information.
Result interfaces can be HL7 unsolicited (no order exists in the receiving system) or solicited (an order does exist in the receiving system) to which the results should post. We also offer scripted (aka terminal emulation, screen scraping) interfaces for receiving systems that cannot accept HL7 unsolicited result messages.
ADT (Admission, Discharge, Transfer) HL7 interfaces from registration systems are used by TELCOR QML to validate the patient ID received from devices and to provide patient information to downstream systems/devices for patient ID validation on the devices if the device allows.
