Pharmacies, Points of Digital Health – PPDH

The objective of the PPDH project is the creation of a healthcare record platform for Point of care testing (POCT) providers. The new PHR platform will enable pharmacies, general practitioners and nursery homes to provide POCT services for their patients and the general community.

Point-of-care testing (POCT) is any medical diagnostic testing that is performed outside of the central laboratory, including (not only) patient's bedside, (but also) operating theatre, critical care unit, maternity unit, emergency department, prisons, nursing homes, physician's office, on emergency vehicles (ambulances), at health fairs, or at home. More recently, local pharmacies have adopted the technology to provide a one-stop service. The overall intent of POCT is to make critical laboratory tests available to the care and management of patients in a timely and accessible manner. This patient-centred focus moves healthcare toward the early detection, prevention, and better management of the patient.

The main innovation of the proposed project is creation of Patient Healthcare Record (PHR) platform for Point of care testing (POCT) providers. The new PHR platform will enable pharmacies, general practitioners and nursery homes to provide POCT services for their patients and general community. With PHR platform POCT providers will be able to provide and manage medical tests, results and patients' medical records. With PHR platform medical tests will be performed at or near the site where the patient is located and the results will be available inside the PHR platform. Furthermore, the patient's medical record will finally be available whenever and wherever needed, as sharing these documents will be enabled in a secure and user friendly way and in accordance with up to date standards of medical IT.

Patients and medical professionals will have the information available from anywhere which will bring benefit to both types of users with the reduction of paperwork and reduced possibility of loss of information and documentation. The data is transferred and stored in a secure way and is available from any device, practically anywhere, when it is needed. The landscape for pharmacies is getting more competitive (congested market, shrinking margins, online orders, ....) and they are trying to find new ways of doing business. One way is providing additional services, such as POCT, where they can attract old and new customers back into the pharmacy. With an attractive solution for the customers/patients they respond to the need and trend of shortening waiting times and visits to GP offices only to take measurements.

The project is carried out jointly with our partners Medasys and Medudem.

The project is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
