The first part of the RomRom Process Navigation Platform is tested successfully is the RomRom Process Navigator. The fully functional web-app is online, open the link above and you can get started. The prototype is called Navigator and contains a tutorial channel. So, experimenting with the app is the best way to get to know the Navigator.
Transparency in healthcare
To improve quality and efficiency in healthcare more transparency is needed. Patients need clear insights into their disease and the possibilities to make well-founded choices about their treatment. Healthcare professionals, like physicians and nurses, need insights into their care processes.
The RomRom system offers the possibility to map the options according to the latest insights. Transparency facilitates shared-decision-making: together with patients making the best choices.
RomRom Process Navigator
The RomRom Navigator contains all the information healthcare professionals need, cleverly arranged in a handy application. The Navigator is a knowledge database based on medical process design. Flowcharts refer to Quick Reference Cards, on which the information is clearly, briefly, and powerfully summarized in Checkpoints.
The Navigator is also a collaboration platform. Healthcare professionals can document and share their processes. In this way, the Navigator is always up to date. Guidelines, protocols, and manuals are thus living documents, where everyone looks at the same current data. It is possible to quickly implement new technology with this system, as everyone is quickly aware of the new working methods.
The RomRom Process Navigator is available as web-app. Several hospitals are testing the Navigator. Regional working groups and third-line expert centers are reporting positive experiences.
Regional working groups often consist of care professionals from different care organizations, who do not have a shared quality system. The Navigator functions as the connecting factor in the regional working group. The regional transparency of the care processes leads to the harmonization of the care provided.
Referrals to regional expertise centers (the third line) require good connections to prevent too much and too little diagnostic testing. The regional center needs the right amount of information to decide remotely what the next steps could be. Presenting patient data in an orderly manner currently costs a lot of time and energy, and things often go wrong. The administration will be much more efficient if this referral process to the third line is highly automated, saving time and money
