Public health behavioral intervention, early detection and treatment, and surveillance and monitoring aim to contain and curtail communicable diseases like viral hepatitis and TB, and sexually transmitted diseases and infections, such as HIV and chlamydia. Integrating data into a single, secure platform for disease surveillance is especially valuable in identifying co-infection, administering preventative vaccinations, and better protecting the population most disproportionately at risk, including drug users, immigrants, inmates and the LGBT community.
Designed for public health, Harris Visual HealthNet supports HIV testing and treatment, STD/STI screening, TB program management and overall communicable disease monitoring and surveillance in one ONC-ACB certified and HIPAA-compliant system.
Visual HealthNet encounter management begins with configurable HIV, STD/STI and TB workflows for intake, registration and targeted data capture (e.g., symptoms, risk factors, history, contacts, etc.). Referral management tracks referrals in and outside the episode of care. Labs support specimen collection and TB skin testing, management of tests and posting of results. Task management includes appointment, education, follow-up and service activities. And for business intelligence and government compliance, the system supports a range of outcome and statistical analysis reports.
