Patient portal

For patients, a hospital stay can consist of long periods of waiting interrupted by short, hectic periods of giving and receiving information. Heavy healthcare staff workloads and the speed at which information needs to be transferred can lead to misunderstandings, patient uncertainty and loss of important information.

DNV Imatis’ Patient Portal solution puts an end to patient boredom, restlessness and information vacuums between patients and staff.

Our patient portal solution is a versatile and highly effective communication platform between patients, their hospital and the outside world. It provides real time access to entertainment and news, contact with friends and relatives, diagnostic information and treatment information. It also allows patients to self-report information about their health. The patient portal improves communication between nurses and patients, making the traditional hospital pull-cord alert a thing of the past. Patients can now submit a specific need digitally, saving hospital staff valuable time and energy.

Patient portal

DNV Imatis’ Patient portal solution can be installed on a number of digital platforms, from bedside screens to tablets og mobile phones.

We know that there are multiple patient groups and that all patients are different. Therefore, our solution is very flexible and allows you to build the perfect patient portal for your patients.

While individual adaptation is sometimes necessary, there are also times when you need to be sure that everyone has access to the same services. The range of services may be limited at the start. But this does not mean that the solution is limited. DNV Imatis patient portal solution can grow in step with internal reorganisation to support a wider range of digital services for the patient.

The patient portal supports various functions, e.g. ordering meals, questionnaire surveys, self-reporting, video communication and sensor monitoring of the individual patient.

The components that make up the patient portal follows the requirements for universal design to ensure that the solution is usable for everyone. The solution is also responsive so that it functions equally well no matter what device the patient is using, a big touch screen in the patient’s room or their own telephone.

DNV Imatis’ patient portal can be used to allocate rooms for hospital patients, or for follow-up in the home using digital remote monitoring.

Patient portal – in a patient room

DNV Imatis’ patient portal is a user-friendly solution that patients can utilise when they are hospitalised. The solution can be used on the hospital’s bedside terminal or the patient’s own mobile device. Here the patient can keep up with their own treatment plan, ask for help, communicate with friends and family via video, order meals, watch TV or regulate the lighting and heating, for example.

Using a patient portal will enable healthcare personnel to spend more time on the patients and less time on non-essential tasks.
