Chronic Disease Management just got easier

The Patient Assistance Tool (PAT) streamlines General Practice Management Plans (GPMPs) and provides interactive education for patients. It incorporates EBM in summary form for decision support, especially for registrars.

Key Features

Documentation for Medicare items

Once completed the GPMP and TCA go into the Care Plan section of your practice software.

Patient-specific questionnaires

Active problems from the health summary are automatically extracted to add disease-specific templates into the GPMP.

Care Plans as living documents

Existing care plan updated with each review or cycle of care, streamlining long term management.


Reduce Costs with a Virtual Consulting Room

Patients using tablets in the waiting room saves nurse time and frees up consulting rooms.

Integrates with your practice software

Currently supports Best Practice and Medical Director.

Works with your current devices

You can use any tablet or computer that runs Google Chrome.

Three stage process

Nurse Section

This includes a checklist for basic tasks like weight and waist circumference.

Patient Section

The patient can use a tablet in the waiting room to answer questions normally asked by the nurse - turning the waiting room into a virtual consulting room. The section can also be done conventionally by the nurse sitting with the patient. The questions trigger appropriate education and/or care plan templates.

Doctor Section

Includes questionnaires to prompt actions based on guidelines, with relevant information from practice software (e.g. pathology) and nurse-entered data (e.g. asthma scores). PAT generates an editable row in the GPMP for any new problem determined by doctor answers. Timing and responsibility are allocated for each problem. At the end a GPMP and TCA is generated and exported to practice software. Google Chrome speech recognition reduces typing.

I have used PAT in my practice since it’s early days. I have found it to be a very comprehensive way of doing quality, useful care plans. It provides up to date and evidence based guidelines for managing chronic diseases and makes care plans something of value to the patient rather than just of financial benefit to the doctor. It involves the patient in their care plan as well as educating them in the process. I would highly recommend it to any doctor who wants to provide quality care to their patients.

I use the Patient Assessment Tool because it improves my chronic disease management. It provides an up to date, patient specific checklist with links to guidelines, management prompts and interactive patient education.
