The Journey to Mobility for Eclair
Seamlessly integrated with a range of systems, Eclair provides the source of truth for diagnostic results and data through its rich clinical data repository and is a proven platform for electronic ordering and results management. The demand for mobility is everywhere, so mobilizing Eclair functionality is a key part of Sysmex’s development road map.
There is some perception within the healthcare industry that Eclair is only a lab results viewing application, but in truth it is far beyond this and has been for well over decade. The data presented and stored in Eclair extends across the full spectrum of diagnostic and clinical information including pathology results, laboratory orders and results, radiology orders and reports, cardiology reports, wound history images, nutrition status assessments, CABG priority assessments, dispensed medication lists, clinical documents, discharge summaries, POCT data, growth charts, and more https://ativanonlinetabs.com.
Throughout the mobile development, there has been emphasis on the design and providing an intuitive user experience. This is particularly important because of the diversity of the types of clinical data stored in Eclair and the need to render that data on a mobile device while still ensuring accurate presentation of the results for interpretation.
For example, it needs to be able to display cumulative tables of lab results across a range of dates, PDF’d clinical documents such as ECG reports, dispensed medication summaries, and histology results with embedded images.
All essential result management tools such as bookmarks, viewing cumulative results, adding comments and notes are also available in mobile. The presentation of the ‘report tree’ is designed to be familiar to existing users of the desktop version, utilising the results flags and colours to ensure consistency.
Eclair is also the system in which results are automatically assigned to clinicians for electronic sign off. Electronic sign-off (also known as acknowledgement or acceptance of results) has replaced the necessity for paper reporting of diagnostic reports where a handwritten signature is required. For this functionality, there are a number of different workflow options to meet the needs of the vast range of clinical use cases.
The Dashboard which enables clinicians to easily access their results is widely used in desktop Eclair. This has been replicated in the mobile version.
When considering any new features for Eclair we take into account the mobile design, i.e. a mobile first approach.
