DXS Content Management System

A clinical decision support solution which, when integrated with a Practice Management or Electronic Medical Record system, presents the provider with daily updated, pinpoint accurate data, relevant to the patient's condition, on both diseases and procedures for both the patient and provider. Information is provided for categories such as patient education, travel, treatment guidelines, news, drug information, support groups and more during the patient/provider encounter.

The Content

DXS provides significant benefits to the recipient of the content (healthcare provider), the providers of the content (stakeholders such as insurers, publishers, pharmaceuticals, facilities etc.) and the patient. Most imporatantly, DXS influences the method of treatment and the spend decision in a particular direction.

DXS contains a range of credible content including but not limited to:

  1. CPT4 descriptions and codes with modifiers and rules
  2. ICD9-CM list with rules and cross-linked to CPT4
  3. Generic and brand drug information categorised by ingredients and ATC classification plus FDA labelling and consumer leaflets
  4. Handouts and illustrations on diseases and procedures for the patient
  5. Global travel advice with guidance on immunizations
  6. Alerts on critical drug recalls and safety changes

There is no limit to the number or type of content categories that can be displayed in DXS. Phase two content includes:

  1. Directory of support groups, physicians, allied health professionals, facilities and more categorised by disease, procedure and locality
  2. Devices database
  3. Information on medical conferences
  4. Audio and audiovisual treatment guidelines and tutorials
  5. Distance learning module for all providers

Accessing the Content

There are three key ways of finding content:

  1. When selecting a CPT4 or ICD9-CM code, DXS alerts the user that additional content is available relevant to the selected codes.DXS retains a fulltime team of coding specialists who create millions of links between CPT4, ICD9 CM and Drugs, Patient Information, Treatment Guidelines and Alerts. This eliminates the vast random results currently experienced with traditional search engines
  2. Searching content directly for drugs, guidelines etc.
  3. Browing the content trees

Updating of Content

DXS has a fulltime team of clinical specialists who maintain and manage the content. This includes continually sourcing best of breed content from credible publishers, ensuring that this content is kept current, constantly improving coding links and sending out alerts. Reacting to needs and recommendations from providers is also seen as key to the success of the services.

Some sources of content are:

  1. CDC- Centre for Disease Control, and numerous sub-agencies such as:
  2. National Institute for Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases
  3. National Cancer Institute
  4. National Eye Institute
  5. National Institute for Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases
  6. FDA - Food and Drug Administration
  7. National Guidelines Clearinghouse
  8. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

e-Discovery

e-Discovery refers to any process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured, and searched often with the intent of using the electronic data as evidence in court cases, production data sets, etc.


Outside of professional review, data processing of electronically stored information (ESI) is the most costly component of the e-Discovery process. In fact, in the USA, more than $1 billion is spent annually on data processing alone. The costs of the e-Discovery process runs at orders of magnitude larger than the ESI costs and can be substantially streamlined using DataCyte's dynamic data viewer, SpydaCyte.


The current economic situation combined with increased legal obligations have made e-Discovery a necessity for corporate legal departments to wrap their arms around data processing and take control of their e-Discovery process.

  9. Classification of imported data (searchable meta-tags)
  10. Review of classified data
  11. Single Federated View of disparate data sources
  12. Easily identify duplicate data
  13. Time-based billing
  14. Easy navigation through the system

“ Patient Centric Philosophy with a strict Treatment Process Flow and assignable responsibility.  ”

MediCyte

The MediCyte Practice Management system is a standalone application that assists the practitioner to receive and send information to and from a Control Server, capture patient information and record patient medical status, treatment details and prescriptions. A further component of the system enables the provision of complete data concerning ICD Codes, CPT Codes, Drugs and complete Patient Information as well as Professional Information concerning diseases, procedures and drugs. The two components interact to form dynamic, controllable treatment protocol and electronic medical record that can be configured to ensure conformance.

The system provides health practitioners with a tool to manage treatment protocols, provide an electronic patient record, and switch relevant data to the related third parties. A data communication layer enables communication between the server and the various Practice Management systems as well as third parties. Further functionality allows practitioners to apply online to become part of the Health Network/Control Server. A network administrator could either approve or reject the practitioner. Upon approval the applicant can either download the software over the internet or a hard installation copy may be used.

Clinical Trials

“Once in hospital, a patient benefits from information systems that provide the medical staff with more information about the patient’s history, capture the details of care to date, and relieve doctors and nurses of excessive paperwork so that they can spend more time focussing on the patient. This ability to sift through data to develop better medical practices is especially important.” – Bill Gates. The Speed of Thought

The above represents the present general direction of development of Health Care Systems

  1. Organizational-centric
  2. Information-based
  3. Paper replacement based
  4. Providing a forensic – looking into past audit.

The mission of DataCyte is to provide a methodology, as well as the tools required to support that methodology, that provides complete visibility, manageability, accountability and control to the Health Industry.

This is achieved through the ongoing, near real-time collection and distribution, as well as authentication and verification of events and activities pertaining to transactions between all parties involved in the care of a patient.

DataCyte presents a solution that is:

  1. Patient-centric
  2. Transaction-based
  3. Process controlled
  4. Pro-active
  5. Fully Auditable

All relevant transactions are processed to provide users with the ability to define, verify and authenticate actions and events pertinent to any of the transactions. The solution can allow disparate systems and parties to authenticate and track a transaction against a protocol defined within the transaction and not interfere with each party’s existing systems. All events forming the transaction are recorded for purposes of an audit trial, should there be a need to investigate the transaction. The technology used is based on a communication platform architecture that could support multiple protocols.

The platform allows for configurable rules for each transaction which, in turn enabled the transformation from historic data analysis is human intervention to proactive action and immediate response to problem situations which is the key to unlocking value in the Health Care Industry.
