Soteria Functionality

Soteria is a single, integrated solution with loosely coupled, well-integrated modular business components that manages information in real time at facility and enterprise level across functional domains.

Soteria is the first intelligent clinical information system that works like clinicians think. Its feature set is highly configurable and supports a variety of clinical workflows; providing clinicians and healthcare environment administrators with the power to streamline processes and, ultimately, improve the quality of patient care.

BRING CLINICAL WORKFLOWS TO THE IPAD

Soteria puts clinical workflows on the iPad, and follows Apple’s design ethos of never allowing technology to get in the way of the user; enabling the clinician to focus on patient care instead of the toolset.

MANAGE PATIENT ADMISSIONS, TRANSFERS, AND DISCHARGES

Dedicated inpatient visit lists enable you to manage preadmissions, admissions, discharges, and quick registrations easily. Using Soteria, you’ll receive up-to-date information on patient statuses, expected admissions, transfers and discharges, and be able to search for patients across facilities. Soteria also provides you with simple processes to convert emergency admissions to full inpatient admissions and an enhanced discharge process includes discharge checklists to help you ensure that all bases are covered when discharging a patient.

MANAGE CLINICAL NOTES TIMEOUSLY

Soteria notifies you when clinical notes need to be completed or are ready to be signed via its integrated task management system and makes managing them quick and easy; enabling you to prevent hold ups and ensure timely delivery.

VIEW AND MANAGE ALL PATIENT ALLERGIES IN ONE PLACE

The Soteria Allergies view provides you with a comprehensive list of all allergies recorded for a patient and enables you to add and update allergy information, all the while syncing this information with relevant clinical notes.

CREATE YOUR OWN RESULTS SETS

Soteria enables you to select the types of results you want to group into sets and save them so that their values are displayed in easily-identifiable groups in the Results view.

PLACE ORDERS FOR A PATIENT WITH COMPUTERIZED PHYSICIAN ORDER ENTRY (CPOE)

Create orders of all types in the Order view and directly within clinical notes. Submit, print, and cancel individual or multiple orders for a patient from a single Order Entry screen that helps you to avoid duplicating orders, warns you of omissions and failures, and guides you through the process of creating complex orders with intelligent order creation tools.

MANAGE USERS, ROLES, AND PERMISSIONS

Control who can access the Soteria system, what information is available to them, and which tasks they are allowed to perform by managing their clinical or administrative roles. While role management enables you to manage permissions according to best-practice methods, fine-grained permissions are available to enable you to customise user access rights for special cases. Emergency access can also be granted at role level.

CREATE AND CONTROL CLINICAL NOTE TEMPLATES AND DEFAULTS

Set up and maintain clinical note templates and control user access, based on clinical roles, using the clinical notes administration tools and Soteria permissions.

MANAGE ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS (EHR) AND CLINICAL VISIT INFORMATION STREAMLINE PATIENT AND ACCOUNT HOLDER REGISTRATION

The Soteria patient and account holder registration wizard enables you to accept data from incumbent EHRs, applies duplicate checking to ensure that only one patient record is created per patient, and enables you to register patients quickly in regular as well as emergency environments.

WRITE STRUCTURED CLINICAL NOTES USING SPEECH OR TEXT

Using Soteria to write clinical notes gives you easy access to standardized medical concepts provided by our comprehensive coding system. This can help you record patient history, examination findings, allergies, problems, diagnoses, test results, and treatment plans in a structured and compliant manner. Soteria comes with the added benefit of built-in clinical decision support – available as you work. Recognizing both keyboard-entered text and speech, the system enables you to describe complex clinical scenarios in your own words and maps clinical concepts to structured data. The system then notifies you and other service providers within the patient’s circle of care of incoming results and incomplete clinical documentation, as well as if there are any notes that are available for you to sign.

VIEW AND MANAGE ALL PATIENT PROBLEMS IN ONE PLACE

The Soteria Problems view provides you with a comprehensive list of all problems recorded for a patient and enables you to add and update problem information, all the while syncing this information with relevant clinical notes.

ACCESS PATIENT TEST RESULTS IN REAL TIME AND GRAPH ITEMS TO VIEW TRENDS

Receive incoming results in real time, organize them into lists that are easy to search and create graphs to view trends in Soteria’s Results view. In-app notifications let you know when new results are available.

VIEW ALL ORDERS SUBMITTED FOR A PATIENT

Soteria’s Orders view provides you with a comprehensive list of all orders placed for a patient, enabling you to filter the list, search for particular orders, and view individual order details.

MANAGE SYSTEM SETUP AND SECURITY MANAGE THE ORGANISATION STRUCTURE

Healthcare environments are complex but working in them shouldn’t be. Soteria’s organisation structure administration tools enable you to mirror your clinical environment digitally and set up business rules to make it easy for clinicians to locate patients and transfer them between locations, while enabling you to control their access to patient information by managing their location permissions.

SET UP AND MAINTAIN SERVICE PROVIDER ACCOUNTS

Add and maintain data relating to service providers who are users of the system as well as any providers who are not users but play a part in one or more patients’ care processes using Soteria’s service provider administration wizard.

RUN AND CUSTOMIZE DETAILED REPORTS

Powerful reporting functionality gives you access to patient, process, and system information that can be used to monitor operations and system activity, while the report configuration tool enables system administrators to customise reports in order to meet their organisational reporting requirements.

Still To Come

EPRESCRIBE WITH EASE

Seamless e-Rx integration makes electronic prescribing for patients being discharged quick and easy and can help you improve the accuracy of prescriptions, reduce duplications, and reduce costs.

PREDICT CLINICAL OUTCOMES WITH PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS

With the aid of predictive analytics, Soteria can provide you with preventative medicaton suggestions for patients, assist you with clinical evaluation, and help you use data to predict hospital readmissions.

MANAGE NURSING TASKS

Soteria Tasks enable you to assign and track nursing tasks as well as improve communication between service providers to ensure timely task execution.

TRACK MEDICATIONS FROM ORDER TO ADMINISTRATION WITH AN ELECTRONIC MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION RECORD (EMAR)

Using Soteria, you can automate processes for ordering and distributing medications and track their administration at a patient level while updating the relevant clinical documentation. System alerts notify you of overdue or missed medications, recent changes, or missing medication signatures. By automating the process, Soteria can help eliminate errors and improve the quality of patient care and administration processes.

AVOID MEDICATION ERRORS WITH SOTERIA MEDICATION RECONCILIATION

Whenever a patient is admitted, discharged, or changes location, Soteria notifies the appropriate service providers that a medication reconciliation needs to be performed and enables him or her to do so via the clinical note.

PLACE AND MANAGE NURSING ORDERS

Order nursing care plans and manage submitted orders using Soteria order entry tools.
Nursing task notifications help you track orders and ensure correct and timely administration.

CREATE NURSING CLINICAL DOCUMENTATION WITH SPECIALIZED TEMPLATES

Soteria clinical documentation templates can be configured to suit your nursing documentation requirements; providing you with the clinical note structure you need to make capturing clinical information quick and easy.

SPECIALIST SERVICES

Soteria will be enhanced to cater for the management of emergency medications, preoperative medications, maternity care processes, as well as oncology care processes.
