Anaesthetists and Assistants are able to use the inTOUCH phone app to have remote access to the patients and their clinical records, that they are going to be seeing with the surgeon. This means they are able to review their list at any time, without having to wait for it to be sent to them and then possibly request clinical notes regarding a patient.
As soon as any changes are made to the list by the practice staff, they will become visible within the inTOUCH app. They can also add notes to the patient's records and upload photos.
By linking the anaesthetist or assistant to an operating session it allows the inTOUCH app to filter the operating sessions, to only display their operating lists and the patients on the list. They are not able to view operating sessions and patients that they are not linked to. When a patient is selected, they can then see their contact details as well as their clinical records.
There are two steps required to enable access to the inTOUCH app
- Install the inTOUCH app on their phone and provide an email address to Incisive, which will be used to provide access to the app and authenticate them each time they log on.
- Configure the operating session(s) in SPM/PHM so that the anaesthetist/assistant are selected from a list and are then linked to the session. The link can occur as a default for a particular type of appointment Session or can be entered for each individual session (if there is variability)
