Using the Web Tool

The IBD Registry WebTool provides local sites with a secure web-based clinical support system, based on the same software as the InfoFlex PMS. 

Benefits

The Web Tool enables data to be captured at the point of clinical contact with patients, provides immediate access to a summary of the patient’s disease and current care and can generate clinically useful outputs and basic service profiling information.

  • Participation in the Registry enables benchmarking against the IBD Standards and national performance
  • The Web Tool also has a data visualisation tool embedded in the system to help IBD teams track performance against key performance indicators for biologics.
  • The charts show local data compared with the national standards and the national average performance of all participating hospitals.
  • The Web Tool has a built-in extract process to produce data files ready for upload to the Registry. Depending on the amount of data submitted to the Registry, IBD Teams will receive reports on the number of registered patients, admissions, surgery, and medications benchmarked against the national Registry data

 

Differences to the PMS

The WebTool is fast to put into operation at your site as it does not need to be installed locally whereas the PMS does. However, this benefit has the disadvantage that the WebTool cannot interface with other local hospital systems. For example, it can create documents but they need to be downloaded to print.

Registry ready

The Web Tool has a built-in extract process to produce data files ready for upload (submission) to the Registry.

Quality Accounts ready

For sites wanting to participate in Quality Accounts, the WebTool is designed to capture the required biologics data and is quick to get started with allowing maximum participation in this important Quality Standard.

Data security

The Web Tool has been developed for those hospitals that do not have a local electronic patient record (EPR) system capable of capturing the information required by the Registry. The Web Tool holds patient identifiable data and clinical staff usernames linked to a unique site code that ensures each hospital can only enter, view and report on the data relating to their patients.

The Web Tool is accessed across the NHS HSCN network and the servers are provided and maintained under contract to the IBD Registry by AIMES Ltd, a company approved by NHS Digital to operate HSCN services. The data centre is in Liverpool and encrypted backups of data are undertaken daily and stored at their data centre. The server firewalls are to HSCN standard and data in transit across HSCN is encrypted using an extended SSL Certificate licensed from GlobalSign. The InfoFlex software for the IBD Registry Web Tool is provided by Chameleon Information Management Services Ltd (CIMS).
