NeoData is a data system for Neonatology designed to assist in daily patient management from admission through discharge and to produce major NICU patient documentation, and is intended for use by neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, and ancillary staff in neonatal care units of any size.
Use NeoData to produce major NICU patient documentation, including:
- Admission summaries;
- Progress notes;
- Discharge summaries;
- Procedure Notes
- Report sheets for rounds;
- TPN and other fluid orders.
Customization: Each NICU is a little bit different, and so is each instance of NeoData. NeoData is highly user-customizable, allowing administrators to change the way NeoData looks and functions to accommodate your workflow and your unique NICU.
Data Tracking: NeoData allows you to add or remove data points from each and every screen.
Need to track a new chemistry value? Using a new scoring tool? Tracking new studies or perinatal history? No problem – NeoData will allow you to add these data points to the screen and begin tracking them in mere minutes.
Reporting: Your daily notes (admission, progress, discharge) are highly customizable, as are the report sheets used for turnover.
Want to rearrange the order of information? Need to add new data points? Change font/format/layout? Add barcodes, logos or imprint areas? All of those are user-configurable.
Screen Layout: You can re-arrange, re-organize, create and remove screens in NeoData to organize the data the way you want it.
Customize the current patient list, each data screen, each and every dropdown, color schemes, and more.
List Configuration: Every selection list in NeoData is user-customizable. Add/Remove entries; change our default entries, or make brand new lists altogether.
Behavior: NeoData has literally hundreds of configuration options to allow you to tweak the way NeoData behaves in so many different ways.
Custom Development: Even with all of these customization options NeoData may still not work quite how you want. In this case we offer customization services on a per-hour basis. If you have a feature in mind and want a cost estimate on building it out reach out to our sales team and they can work with you on pricing.
NeoData includes a powerful and flexible Query and Reports Module which allows you to rapidly create a variety of user-defined queries (data searches) and reports (formatted and customized printouts of query results). With this feature, you can review and analyze patient information stored in the NeoData database directly from within the program. Once configured, queries can be stored for repeated use.
In addition, queries can be exported to Microsoft Access for outside analysis.
There are different types of reports that can be produced by the Query Module
Spreadsheet Report: A Spreadsheet report creates a vertical list of patients or admissions with information for a single patient displayed on each line.
Statistics Report: In a statistics report, each cell in the report table displays statistical information pertaining to the patients or admissions. A typical example would be a crosstabulation of admission outcomes versus birth weight ranges.
Multiline Report: Like a Spreadsheet Report, a Multiline report creates a vertical list of the patients or admissions, however, the information for each patient or admission can include one or more subreports containing supplemental information such as medications, lab results, diagnoses, procedures, and more.
Query Module Training
The NeoData help built into the system has extensive documentation on how to use the query and reports module, and NeoData ships with a number of example reports, but some users still want more training.
We expect that the class will take about 8 hours to complete depending on the student’s expertise in NeoData and their experience with other report writers. However, the student should be able to generate a simple spreadsheet report after about 3 hours of the video training.
The cost for this class is $750 per site. This will entitle a site to download the videos and class outline and use them for an unlimited number of students for an unlimited length of time.
For those who want to get deeper into the query and reporting module, or want more sophisticated training this is the way to go. Contact Us to order.
The core NeoData HL7 Interface can be used to receive admission data, maternal/delivery data, and labs along with sending notes back to the hospital system in a variety of forms.
The Daily Data Interface is used to import data from nursing systems such as daily weights, lengths, vitals, and I/O totals. Lots more information on the interfaces is available on our Interfaces page.
