Now there’s a way to reduce
transcription, toggling, errors
with PeriCALM Data Export
PeriGen introduces the latest data integration improvement to PeriCALM® Patterns™ and PeriCALM® CheckList™: A data export feature designed to reduce time spent on transcribing EFM data and toggling between systems to capture and post it.
The new feature, the result of feedback received by a large number of labor & delivery clinicians at the 2015 AWHONN Convention, as well as current customers, was launched at PeriGen’s booth at this month during the annual AWHONN Convention in Grapevine, TX.
How PeriCALM Data Export Works
Patterns and CheckList data export allows PeriCALM users to select 15- or 30-minute EFM summary information for posting into an annotation and, where enabled, designated EHR fields in real-time with just a few clicks of the mouse.
The new features adds an icon that activates selection of a specific section of tracing and generates an Export Dialog. The dialog automatically populates with a summary of FHR and uterine activity measurements for the specificed time range, as calculated by PeriCALM Patterns or CheckList.
This EFM data points are customizable and can include baseline, variability, the number and types of decels, etc. The feature also allows the user to modify each data point and add comments. Once reviewed and approved by the user, the data Export button sends the data to the tracing as an annotation. If the associated EHR is configured to accept this data, the same click can send it to the EHR with a time, date, and user stamp.
The feature is designed to provide real-time data while saving labor & delivery clinicians time that’s currently wasted on transcription, toggling between screens and systems, and cumbersome calculations better handled by computer.
In early tests of the new feature, one user found she saved 5 minutes an hour while charting. PeriGen will be conducting research to measure time-savings before and after the new data export feature is introduced at client hospitals.
