Planning

TakeCare’s Resource- and Careplanning gives the user complete control of all resources within and during a care contact. This is where all process steps – from planning to follow-up – are managed with ease.

Booking
TakeCare’s resource handling is a flexible module where the user selects the view that fits his/her precise way of working.
The care unit’s settings for appointment scheduling are the basis of all booking functions. This means that the same support is provided for resources, types of appointments, forms and scheduling bases, regardless of which view is used.
The booking overview provides an aggregate picture of the care unit’s appointments, resource availability and the possibility of various printouts of the day’s bookings.

Waiting list
The waiting list manages all of the unit’s scheduled but unbooked appointments. Using excellent filtering options, the user can easily determine which patients are next in line and should be booked.

Notifications
Notifications which summon the patient can include prewritten texts with “tags” which automatically retrieve information from the medical records for printouts. It is also possible to create Microsoft Word attachments containing more advanced types of data such as photos, route descriptions, etc. These appendices are printed automatically along with the notification summoning a patient to an appointment. The list of summoning letters is a function that makes it possible to notify more than one patient and print more than one notification at the same time.

Care planning
The care provider can create a new care planning process at the time of initiating treatment for a patient. This includes a patient who is scheduled for surgery or for hospitalisation to undergo medical treatment. The care provider records the background information and prioritises the contact. Activities, bookings, hospitalisation schedules and operation schedules are linked to the care planning process.

Admission planning
The calendar shows all bookings and scheduling for the care unit’s active resources, regardless of which care unit “owns” the booking. It is possible to book events (e.g. meetings) in the calendar. The “search for vacancies” function quickly finds the next vacancy for a resource. It is also possible to book one or more appointments (series of bookings) for one or more resources (team bookings) and/or to book a group of patients at the same time. The link to “funding” shows that the patient has arrived and has been recorded for funding. A text-message reminder of the appointment can be sent to the patient before the appointment.

Activities
The activity manager creates activities that must be performed for a patient. An activity can be created with or without a time or date. The activities can be planned in different time intervals and at different frequencies such as several times a day or on a specific day every other week. The activities can also be continuous over a specified period of time as an item of information, without the activity having to be registered as completed.

To Do
The “To Do” overview shows the patient’s activities from different modules in TakeCare, such as activities, the scheduled taking of specimens and bookings. It is also possible to see the activities scheduled for several patients on the same list. This is beneficial for use as a working list for the care unit.

Activity plans
The activity plan is a tool for planning the patient’s care pathway on the basis of problems, resources and/or risks. Goals are set for a problem, risk or resource – after which the care pathway is planned with the help of activities. This function makes it possible to write evaluations on the basis of goals and activities. It is possible to predefine activity-plan templates to support the user in being able to plan and implement a higher degree of standardisation in the treatment of certain diseases, problem-solving, etc.
