Arintra: The Ideal Guard Against Missing Clinical Data

A comprehensive medical record demonstrates: complete care, fills the gaps in data, and provides evidence against allegations. Such a record requires a systematically arranged set of open-ended questions accompanied by active listening.

Each patient has a distinct version of a loosely organized aggregate of information related to their particular illness. When this information is put together in a systematic and organized method, a detailed and complete outlook of their disease is obtained. The result is a comprehensive and focused medical record.

Clinical data points that shouldn’t be missed

  1. Systemic and Physical findings
  2. Radiology/imaging results
  3. Laboratory investigations
  4. Past medical history
  5. Discharge summary
  6. Progress notes
  7. Referral letters
  8. Current medications
  9. Outpatient notes

How Arintra helps?

Arintra understands that a scrupulous and complete history-documentation can work wonders in eliciting a patient’s story and in improvising patient care.

“For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned” - Benjamin Franklin

Supported by an organized data collection format; it ensures that the best patient clinical records are generated which:

  1. Assures patient care continuity
  2. Improves auditing
  3. Enhances informed decision making
  4. Allows communication of relevant patient information among physicians
  5. Increases the time available for patient care
  6. Reduces physician information-documentation hassles
  7. Reduces patient expenditure on repeated appointments.

Arintra uses a questionnaire-based format interview sheet that contains multiple-choice questions about common symptoms. This health history taking tool has been structured to organize patient information in such a way that focuses your attention on the most specific information. Such a format enables easy and quick clinical reasoning.

A typical Arintra profile includes the following:

  • Chief complaints
  • A detailed history of presenting illness
  • Vitals
  • Drug Allergies
  • Family History
  • Social History
  • Medical History
  • Surgical History
  • Lab investigations
  • Medication History

With a history-taking tool like Arintra, there needn’t be any worry about losing patient information again because

  • It organizes patient history right from its inception
  • In case any information has been overlooked, the review of systems ensures that it’s documented
  • Since a greater bulk of documentation has been documented pre-consultation, any bit of information which could have been disregarded during the documentation process can be recorded during the consultation.

Thus, Arintra makes sure patient-history has been triple-checked before it is recorded.
