The Clinical Information Module

Waiting list functions (beds)

Once admitted, the patient is automatically transferred to a waiting list in the ward where the admin or nursing staff can transfer them into an available bed.

Bed management/transfers

Bed movements can be done real time or after the event based on the staffing structures of the medical facility.

Attending doctors lists

A list indicating all the patients for a specific attending doctor can be created.  This makes it easy for doctors to find patients in a busy hospital.

Radiology & laboratory results

Interfaces to various external service providers, such as radiology and pathology, ensure that diagnostic test results can be included in the electronic health record.
