DMAR web-based software is normally installed into the local health care environment to meet local privacy and security standards. DMAR systems have undergone rigorous review including provincial Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) and third party threat risk assessments (TRA).
We can provide cloud hosting solutions but it is usually reserved for de-identified patient data.
Once privacy and security standards are met, we provide on-site or web based training of staff to begin creating a culture of data quality. Users are provided continuous review of their data and on-line coaching by experts on the system. We believe in providing the necessary training and support to create a strong foundation of accurate data within the health care team. The delivery of health care increasingly means being accountable for results.
Our specific services include:
Activity tracking for renal programs
DMAR systems provides clinical activity tracking software for the Renal Program at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre which is a University of Toronto affiliated teaching hospital. DMAR software provides data exports for the Ontario Renal Reporting System, physician billing, quality improvement and peer-reviewed research. It has been operational since 2008.
Optimizing the use of home dialysis
DMAR systems accurately benchmark the key drivers of home dialysis use. 1
Below is an example of how a typical dialysis program optimized the factors that determine incident use of PD. The accumulative impact of these changes increased Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) use from 17% to 38% amount new patients staring chronic dialysis.
Health care leaders wishing to grow home dialysis face many challenges. The table below describes the many advantages of using DMAR systems to grow home dialysis.
