‘Advanced Community’ is the first community healthcare system focused on delivering mobile working

Advanced Health & Care (Advanced) today announces the launch of ‘Advanced Community’. This is the first system designed specifically for community healthcare that has mobile working at its core.

Advanced Community has been designed for use by community healthcare providers across a wide range of services and builds on Advanced’s existing systems, which are already widely used in community settings.

Advanced Community delivers integrated care in the community and includes comprehensive core functionality such as referral management, care planning, assessments, patient records, bed management and appointment booking.

The system also includes purpose built mobile applications and mobile workforce management solutions, enabling the secure recording and reporting of patient information from anywhere and at any time, even when a mobile signal is unavailable. Care workers can deliver care assessments and care plans, effectively manage treatment and ‘clock in and out’ of appointments - all via Advanced’s iNurse and iConnect mobile applications.

Jim Chase, Managing Director of Advanced Health & Care says, “Advanced Community is sophisticated, flexible and unique in its approach to integrated community healthcare. As over 70 per cent of community staff work away from their offices, the system has been designed from the ground up to facilitate mobile working, thereby helping to solve the community healthcare sector’s primary day-to-day operational issue - managing a mobile and distributed workforce.”

Using Advanced Community, referrals can be easily routed to the right service and the integrated iNurse patient management system safely receives, records and communicates patient care information via handheld Windows Mobile and BlackBerry devices, considerably improving efficiency. Android tablet and Smartphone options will be available shortly.

Advanced’s iConnect delivers real-time task lists and care recipient data to care workers via their near field communication (NFC) enabled mobile phones. Appointment arrival and departure times are automatically recorded by swiping these phones against radio frequency identification (RFID) tags positioned inside patients’ homes.

Advanced Community works alongside Advanced’s Adastra 111, minor injuries, Single Point of Access, GP out-of-hours and other unscheduled care services. It also enables access to GP primary care records, the Advanced End-of-Life Care Register and the Summary Care Record while supporting a wide range of integrations and messaging to primary and secondary healthcare IT systems.

Chase adds, “We are the only software provider to offer such a robust, integrated and truly mobile solution for the community healthcare market, providing the ideal platform for safe, efficient and cost-effective care in the community.”
