EMIS Health’s gastroenterology solution supports gastroenterology teams in the management of patients with long term conditions such as Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD). Clinicians have an overview of full patient details, including diagnosis and drug outcomes, which can be analysed over time to review effectiveness of treatment for patients.

By integrating with other clinical systems, such as endoscopy and pathology, clinicians are able to review results and care information from within one system.

Clinicians can also run remote clinics through the Virtual Clinic functionality, which reduces the amount of acute patient visits. These can be scheduled and prompted when due within the system, with patient and GP letters being automatically generated.

Telephone 'Flare-line' review functionality allows quick updating of the patient record, saving subsequent transcription time. The system can automatically link with both the UK national IBD registry and Biologics Audit website to upload all relevant datasets and avoid clinician double entry.

"We expect to save at least £350,000 per year by improving correct drug use in gastroenterology"
