New functions for MCS vianova

MCS Modulare Computer und Software Systeme AG is presenting several new functionalities that enhance the integrated solution MCS vianova for hospitals, labs and out-patient clinics.

Combined with the medication plan, the vianova PDMS integrated nursing planning and documentation module provides a comprehensive treatment plan for ICU patients. ‘It incorporates state-of-the-art nursing theory (diagnosis-objective-measure) and allows presentation of the entire care process tailored to the individual hospital’s nursing standards,’ the manufacturer reports.
Users of MCS lab systems can now use D2D, the telematics platform provided by the German physicians’ associations Kassenärztliche Vereinigungen. The D2D standard ensures secure and fast data exchange based on a standardised procedure, which is already used for other transactions, such as DALE-UV and eDMP.
‘MCS vianova for out-patient clinics offers new invoicing modules, an expanded access rights system and many new functionalities in the MCS interface and communication module (SKM),’ the company adds. ‘Via a bulk bill, the payer can be invoiced directly for services rendered.’
An innovation in the MCS interface and communication module is the ability to process and distribute HL7 messages to up to five sub-systems. Type and format of the message as well as the communication medium (TCP/IP socket, file or database communication) are freely configurable and can be filtered.
As an alternative to the conventional HL7 integration, MCS offers a link to third party applications via web integration which increases interoperability and transparency for the user.
Bi-directional synchronisation of documents or document references with HIS or archiving solutions (HL7 message type MDM^T01/T02) are also part of the expanded solution.
The MSC vianova is on show in Hall 15, stand G17/G18.
