Microsoft case study on our Quality Management System

Microsoft has published a case study on the development and use of CorporateHealth’ Quality Management System.

After working closely with the Microsoft Visio development team we found an ideal way to create a powerful, simple to use and very pragmatic way to manage all our Standard Operating Procedures. Their Data Visualizer solution provides the key component: An automated way of translating lists (in Excel) into flowcharts (in Visio). That means the steps of a procedure can be rapidly developed as a simple list and presented to internal and external stakeholder for review and use as a flowchart without dealing with any of the design work that a flowchart normally requires.

Embedded into custom Sharepoint lists and workflows then makes all SOPs available to our nurses, doctors and other stakeholder to ensure every case is handled with the same quality as designed.

CIMT: Colonic Capsule Endoscopy (CCE) for screening of colorectal cancer

Pilot study: Using video capsule for colon examination of citizens with a positive screening sample.

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in Denmark. To reduce the incidence rate, a national screening test (to be performed at home) was initiated in April 2014 for citizens aged 50 to 74.

The screening programme has caused a rise in the number of people needing a colonoscopy in the hospital to determine whether they have cancer or early stages of cancer, because the screening procedure often shows positive results. Both the screening test (submission of faeces sample) and colonoscopies are very uncomfortable and represent a great burden on the healthcare system. In addition, colonoscopies carry a considerable risk of serious complications and are very expensive. For this reason there is a great necessity to explore simpler and cheaper ways to test and diagnose patients. …PillCam w text

Ny kamerapille screener for tarmkræft

sundhed.dk

På mandag sluger den første testperson en ny kamerapille, der skal screene for tarmkræft. Det er første skridt i et nyt forskningsprojekt, som Odense Universitetshospital, Region Syddanmark, tyske Corporate Health og sundhed.dk står bag

Forskningsstudiets formål er at kunne tilbyde en alternativ screeningsmetode for tarmkræft, så kamerapillen kan erstatte koloskopi (kikkertundersøgelse) i nær fremtid.
