Barcode

  • Totalcare “Dvorak” extends the functionality of Totalcare Documents with support for automated detection and recognition of barcodes in scanned documents.

    Key features of this module are,

    • Automatic determination of a Patient record by Patient URN, MRN, File ID or other Patient identification barcode
    • Automated determination of Document type by Form identification barcode
    • Support for multiple barcodes, multiple symbologies, any orientation

    Client quotes

    All our written and typed paper-work, including correspondence, nursing observation sheets, financial and privacy consents are scanned at reception and then discarded. Within seconds these documents are identified by barcode and incorporated in the patient’s medical file. The system is completely automated and has a 100% success rate, even when patient labels are upside down or sideways. Dvorak has proved to be an enormous time saver and has completely eliminated the laborious, tedious and time consuming tasks of filing and/or manually matching scanned documents. It is great!

  • Pindara Emergency Centre was the first private Emergency Service in Australia and we have been using the Totalcare suite of medical software for nearly 20 years. It has proved itself to be a reliable, progressive and integral part of our service.
    We operate 24 hours per day and the Totalcare suite works around the clock, day after day all year long. Our backups are even done several times per day with no down time, allowing business to go on as usual.
    Every aspect of the suite is valued by the staff using it. We have a large pool of receptionists and they find Totalcare simple to learn, and fast and efficient to use.
    Many of our doctors work at various other practices and Emergency Centres. Year after year, all these docs compliment our clinical package, Mozart, as the best medical software they have encountered. It has a well thought out layout and workflow and is a pleasure to use. It has all past medical details, correspondence, reports and results instantly available and enables us to quickly generate documents and process patients.
    All correspondence, pathology and radiology results are automatically received and filed in the patient file and flagged for review by the requesting doctor. It is a real time saver for reception staff. As a doctor it is great to have all these results so readily and immediately available.
    Our most recent addition is the automated barcode reading and document management module called Dvorak. This has somewhat surprisingly proved itself to be the favourite utility in the whole Totalcare suite by many of the staff! All our written and typed paper-work, including correspondence, nursing observation sheets, financial and privacy consents are scanned at reception and then discarded. Within seconds these documents are identified by barcode and incorporated in the patient’s medical file. The system is completely automated and has a 100% success rate, even when patient labels are upside down or sideways. Dvorak has proved to be an enormous time saver and has completely eliminated the laborious, tedious and time consuming tasks of filing and/or manually matching scanned documents. It is great!
    The support staff at Totalcare, although rarely required, are also a delight to deal with. The consistently provide speedy and excellent support. It has been a pleasure to partner with Totalcare and I am delighted to recommend them

  • Brisbane, Queensland – 27 February 2015 -Equipoise (International) Pty LTD (EQI) today officially launched, Totalcare “Dvorak”, an automated document import module using barcode recognition and matching.   

    “Dvorak” extends the functionality of Totalcare Documents with support for automated detection and recognition of barcodes in scanned documents.  The barcodes, either attached as labels or printed directly as part of a document, identify the patient and type of document.  "Dvorak" runs as an unattended server process that automatically processes documents as they are received, taking a fraction of a second to detect, analyse, match and import a document.

    Nat Wong, EQI’s Managing Director, said that the module was developed as part of EQI’s ongoing response to the increasing demand to provide the Australian and international healthcare industry the productivity measures required to be a competitive provider of exceptional health care.

    From a business perspective, the productivity improvement that this module brings to our clients is significant.  Paper is still prevalent in healthcare, whether in an administrative or clinical capacity, and even otherwise paperless environments still receive paper documents from patients and a multitude of other sources.  Managing that volume of paper efficiently, converting it automatically to a digital form, and then making it available in a timely manner to clinicians and administrative staff, is a key enabler of efficient quality health care.

    Mr Wong recognises that having key partnerships with clients has enhanced the development of the software since 1994. In particular, Mr Wong acknowledged Dr Paul Plűss of Pindara Emergency Centre for his involvement in the development of the document import module.

    Open for business 24/7, every aspect of our software must provide Pindara Emergency, as with all our clients, fast and efficient administrative and clinical workflows.  Pindara Emergency has always been at the forefront of using technology to enhance their processes and their uptake of the barcoding technology is no different.  Smart solutions adopted by smart people.

    Dr Paul Plűss of Pindara Emergency Centre, Australia’s first private Emergency Service and a Totalcare client of some 20 years, was the first client to take up the module having partnered in its final stage development.  Dr Plűss confirmed the new module has provided workplace efficiencies through its seamless integration to their existing suite of Totalcare products.

    This has somewhat surprisingly proved itself to be the favourite utility in the whole Totalcare suite by many of the staff! All our written and typed paper-work, including correspondence, nursing observation sheets, financial and privacy consents are scanned at reception and then discarded. Within seconds these documents are identified by barcode and incorporated in the patient’s medical file. The system is completely automated and has a 100% success rate, even when patient labels are upside down or sideways. Dvorak has proved to be an enormous time saver and has completely eliminated the laborious, tedious and time consuming tasks of filing and/or manually matching scanned documents.
