Protocol Editor is designed for medical offices and
departments. This program is useful in diagnostics and clinical research. Although
Protocol Editor database contains default settings for endoscopy procedure, the program can be easily retargeted
to any set of diagnostic and clinical examinations, for example, ultrasound
retarget to any set of diagnostic and clinical examinations, for example, ultrasound diagnostics, functional diagnostics, ENT, radiology, dialysis and etc.
There are special utilities to medical images processing, patients registration, reports generation, protocols import / export, protocols validation, templates usage, etc. There is a set of special tools, which can be infinitely modified and expanded to include built-in mechanism connecting external modules. Protocol Editor flexibility is achieved through a configuration module which allows changing settings for any number of examinations by just a few clicks.
In general, Protocol Editor software includes all necessary functions to support work of a diagnostic department, from patients’ registration and input of research results and rendered services, to formation of reports and transfer them to MS Internet Explorer and MS Office. All information from protocols is stored in the database including data about patients, research results, opinions and images.
To reduce setup time there are set program configurations to endoscopy, ultrasound, functional diagnosis and hemodialysis offices.
Despite high flexibility of Protocol Editor settings its universality was upgraded to even higher level by providing ability to manage a list of additional protocol fields. That allows taking into account all specific parameters of each examination. Parameters can be divided into groups which ensures maximum setting comfort. The program does not require manual user interface changing because corresponding screen changes are performed automatically.
Among custom fields of protocol perhaps the most interesting fields have «formula» type. Values of a field can be calculated by formulas created by a user. In the built-in formula editor there is a list of fields to insert in formula.
It is important that all user-entered additional fields are automatically recorded
in the printed form of a protocol.
New features provide maximum Protocol Editor flexibility in rapidly changing requirements of medical practice and medical research.
To reduce cost of medical offices automation process some of them use free software. Protocol Editor has feature of protocols transmission in OpenOffice.org in order to meet such offices. OpenOffice.org is a popular free analogue of MS Office.
