The solution to this problem is inter-operability between systems. This is why Mirrabooka is promoting the use of industry standard interfaces.
Mirrabooka currently has many standard and propriety interfaces to Hospital and other clinical systems.
This is a Patient Master Index enquiry to the Hospital System. Cas has built this into the patient registration.
This is an application that runs separately to Cas and accepts A08, A01, A30, A31, A34 update messages from the Hospital system and updates the Cas demographic data without any user involvement.
Cas to Varis Interfaces
On registering a patient within Cas, the demographic detail is sent to Varis to create a new Varis patient entry if one does not exist. This connection is done seamlessly without user intervention.
Cas appointments for a specified day or days can be downloaded from Cas to Varis.
This module is designed to be run at night prior to the backup procedure. It downloads from Varis each patient service from a specified machine for that day.
