The Onesys Navigator is a piece of software with which you may follow a patient's overall condition and treatment plan or course of a disease over years or even decades.
In practice and assuming you are opening an ON file of an existing patient, you will open the software using your EHR, where the ON will appear as an icon.
Opening the ON for a patient, you will be greeted with a summary of clinical decisions and crucially, links to the supporting evidence for each. The supporting evidence consists of study results and can include things such as volumetric tumor growth curves, not just images and blood tests.
Background information is the beginning of everything. There's no reason for you to have to search for specific images again and again but rather, once you have found an image you deem medically relevant, you have image (or collection of images) bookmarked for future reference.
This way, every time you open an ON file for that patient, you will always have your selection of information at your disposal. Furthermore, these ON files can be exported and sent to your colleagues assuming they too possess the software.
Though the ON has in-built image viewing functionality, it is not an image viewer. There are plenty of those.
It is clinician-invented technology for easing the non-clinical burden of clinical care and has been used in the Oulu University Hospital as part of the EHR, where this functionality was first demonstrated to work in practice.
With the Onesys Medical Card the patient-physician encounter begins with a concise summary of the patient's health information.
Pertinent health information can be read and understood within a single minute.
Apart from a PnP card reading device, a device to attach it to and our reading software, you don't require anything else. No internet connection is necessary, as the data is written onto the card's chip itself.
The OMC is a 2ndary information storage or repository solution. The card always refers to another database or repository, from where the information has been collected and made into a pertinent, clinically-relevant format.
