This is an Active initiative of Bahmni team, to develop IPD features in Bahmni, to handle scenarios from Patient Admission, Care and Discharge. This will include many new features like: Drug Chart/MAR, Nurse Dashboard, Ward View, Tasks, Treatment Plans, Discharge Summary, Patient Care & Monitoring Dashboard, etc.
Please join the #bahmni-ipd channel on Slack, or watch this JIRA board to get a sense of the roadmap items, and to participate or provide feedback.
While Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems have emerged as a cornerstone in revolutionizing the way healthcare professionals manage patient information and streamline clinical processes, the In-Patient Department (IPD) module stands out as a pivotal component, redefining the quality of care provided to in-patients.
What is the IPD Module?
The IPD module is the center of inpatient care within any healthcare organization with an in-patient care facility. It is a tool designed to manage the entire lifecycle of an in-patient's stay, from admission to discharge and beyond. This module seamlessly combines patient records, treatment plans, medication administration, and communication channels into a unified digital platform.
Key Features and Benefits:
Efficient Data Capture & IPD Operations: The IPD module allows healthcare providers to capture, update, and retrieve patient information effortlessly. Every detail should be digitally recorded and instantly accessible, along with a holistic view of the IPD Activities.
Care Coordination: This module facilitates seamless communication among the multidisciplinary healthcare team, ensuring that everyone involved in a patient's care is on the same page. Real-time updates and alerts keep all stakeholders informed.
Medication Management: From prescription to administration, medication records are meticulously tracked, thus, minimizing errors, ensuring patient safety and optimizing the efficiency of the healthcare resources.
Analytics and Reporting: Robust reporting tools within the IPD module empower healthcare administrators to assess departmental performance, monitor trends, and make data-driven decisions for process improvement [Later Phase].
Patient Engagement: Patients and their families can access relevant information through secure portals, enhancing engagement and fostering a sense of empowerment in their care journey [Later Phase].
