A custom FileMaker solution for iPad makes it easy to gather information from patients on the spot: at their bedside while in the hospital.
Health problems associated with smoking affect millions of people every year. For more than a decade, the Ottawa Model for Smoking Cessation (OMSC) has been providing patients at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute with a way to stop smoking and avoid certain health risks.
The OMSC systematically identifies smokers seen in clinical practice, providing consultation, treatment and follow-up to wean them off cigarettes. The program has also helped more than 140 other healthcare organizations across Canada implement the model, entering approximately 23,000 smokers into the program each year.
To achieve the best outcomes possible, the OMSC gathers information from patients at their bedside while in the hospital, offers a personalized smoking cessation regimen and tracks their progress after they go home. Streamlining this whole process is a custom database solution running on iPads and built using the FileMaker Platform.
