DCP in a nutshell ...
Summarises guideline recommendations for every patient.
Preventive Care Tasks
"If it is not measured, it is not done."
Preventive care begins with information gathering and measurement.
DCP uses current guidelines to assess status of preventive care and provide guidance on what information needs to be gathered to meet recommendations from the RACGP Red Book, Diabetes management guidelines etc.
Complex rules, flow charts and manuals of preventive care are distilled into coloured prompts simplifying assessment and determining actions.
No dialog boxes. No hunting through complex tabs and pages in software required. Information is determined from available measures and processed against guidelines.
DCP offers simplification of preventive care assessment as well as reporting(paperwork).
Complete your paperwork after updating the patients preventive care items (i.e. 'go green' on the DCP panel).
Use the patient centric documents in DCP to produce plans efficiently giving you more time for managing patients.
Information on preventive care status, goals and management is included in plans made with the DCP.
Individual GP's and health teams can utilise the DCP to utilise CDM billing items.
Use the panel prompts to initiate EPC item completion.
"Complexity is the root of the problem and paperwork layered on top of complexity is ludicrous."
