Collaboration Sharing Center

A Structured Content Library

With the leadership provided by the Collaboration for Health IT (Collaboration), the team at ICE Health Systems (ICE) has created a comprehensive health record system. The objective of the Collaboration is to provide a streamlined workflow that is easy-to-use, thorough, and supports the development of clinical standards internationally. As a benefit to service providers as well as population-based decision makers, the content within ICE is structured in order to enhance the ability to collect, warehouse, analyse and share data. Furthermore, the insights generated by using structured content to systematically collect data, allows the long-term study of patients for clinical outcomes and public health research. In addition to the benefit of global healthcare, the significant revenue related value of structured content can be seen in the table below.

Structured content templates have been created in ICE and are available for you to use now! An online library called the Collaboration Sharing Center warehouses this growing list of templates. It is publically accessible and provides descriptive content, associated images and the ability to request each template to be seamlessly added to your account.

The Creative Commons licence Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) allows sharing and adapting the content, as long as the appropriate credit is given, and changes are indicated. The available structured content templates are categorized as document templates or reporting templates.

The document templates support clinical input and are used to create comprehensive progress notes, letters, and assessments to streamline workflow and require only minimal clicks. In addition to supporting the development of healthcare standards, the document templates save time for users and, where appropriate also serve as clinical checklists to facilitate consistency. All of these document templates are customizable to the needs of the individual. Further, the “structured” format of the content allows responses to be used to instantly generate insightful results in ICE Reporting.

Template Details

The report templates access information from the system to generate valuable information on all aspects of the clinic, providers, patients, billing and finances, treatments, documents and more. With charts, summaries and detailed reports, this information can be beneficial at an individual level for progress evaluation, at the clinical level for audit information, at an institutional level for business management, and internationally for treatment outcome trends and public health research. Report templates can be customized to suit the needs of the clinic.
