Creating a new EHR for improving medical therapies!
In this blog we will give you a short overview about our new EHR (electronic health record) “TBase” on which we have been working for almost a year.
Here are the reasons, why we decided to use SAPUI5
The goal of this project
We have developed a prototype app that is able to meet the medical documentation requirements of our various in-house ambulances (e.g., cardiology, nephrology, and neurology). Our electronic health record “TBase” simplifies therapy documentation in these departments, for example, by replacing paper forms and by providing a modern user interface. The new EHR will also benefit the quality of care at our hospital, because therapies can be systematically reviewed and then adapted for individual patients.
We designed the app with current data protection standards in mind. For example, we need to ensure that viewing patient data is restricted to the specific doctors treating the patient – and that data access is based on patient consent.
Here are some impressions of our app and potential use cases:
In the example below, we automatically generate a diagnosis-report based on a template that can be freely configured. We use a combination of both structured and unstructured data entry, leaving the choice open to the user.
In the example below, we register digital reconstructions of deep brain stimulation electrodes as used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
In the example below, we are automatically generating medical reports for our patients, which requires significantly less time for our medical staff.
Furthermore, when the time is right, we hopefully can support our medical staff by finding and giving the best therapy everywhere.
- Frontend: SAPUI5
- Backend: Hana XSA, Runtime Node.js
- Design: Keep in mind that our requirement was more functional and less fancy. 🙂
- Tabs: Depending on the authorization, the user will only see corresponding tabs and ui elements and not all the tabs and ui-elements that you can see in this video clip.
Now enjoy the beauty of our app. In this video, you can take a look at some of the pages of the app. Note that all entries are demo data without relation to real persons.
Finally, we are very glad to have found a new web development platform (SAP HANA XSA) which suits perfectly in our system landscape and we’ll be able to solve the more complex requirements of our users in the future.
Thank you all for this great community!
