Neonatal Notes Manager (NNM) is an innovative software tool used to support the patient documentation needs of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It combines comprehensive clinical data with artificial intelligence and a friendly graphical user interface to assemble patient documentation – all guided by individualized user preferences and templates. NNM is NICU software that was designed by and for clinicians working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
NNM can operate in two modes. It can support a private-practice neonatologist who simply wants to collect patient data and use that data for the generation of patient notes. Or, it can support a large medical center where all clinical data related to nursing and physician care is collected. This data can be used by medical students, residents, fellows, attendings, and nurses to quickly create patient notes and act as a source for reference, research, and management analysis. In either mode, NNM can help manage the work flow and ensure that tasks such as follow-up exams, daily progress notes, attending review, and billing are completed.
Neonatal Notes Manager significantly reduces the time required to collect data and develop patient notes. Data can be entered using the intuitive data entry screens or loaded automatically through the HL7 interface. The resulting notes are clear, complete and legible. NNM recognizes that each practitioner has their own style and level of detail for developing notes and accommodates those differences. However, the previous work done by other staff members is easily incorporated into the current notes to eliminate duplicate work.
Data collected by Neonatal Notes Manager is used to generate patient documents such as admission notes, nursing flow sheets, daily progress notes and discharge summaries. Letters and reports are also generated to communicate patient status to third-parties, to generate daily sign-out sheets, to generate patient bills, and act as a source for clinical research.
NNM can also be used to plan and track the tasks associated with the ongoing management and discharge of the patient – and helps ensure that critical tasks are not missed. Reminders to complete any type of task (hearing tests, eye exams, immunizations, parental education, state-mandated reporting, etc.) can be created and tracked in NNM. These reminders can be entered manually or created automatically based on rules established by the NNM user. Through the reminder generation function, a discharge plan can be automatically created based on the clinical status of the patient on admission, and constantly updated as the status of the patient changes.
In sum, the benefits of Neonatal Notes Manager include:
NNM operates on a Microsoft Windows platform. For a single user, Windows 2000 or Windows XP is required along with the desktop version of Microsoft’s SQL Server (MSDE). For a multi-user implementation, a Microsoft Windows network is required, comprised of a server running Windows 2000 Server or above, with Microsoft’s SQL Server as the database engine, and client machines running Windows 2000 or above.
While NNM is an outstanding base for managing the data for NICU patients, Isoprime Corporation recognizes that each customer has unique requirements. As a result, Isoprime offers customization services to modify or add capabilities of NNM to best meet their unique needs.
