Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) initially developed the Primary Sense clinical tool addresses the needs of general practice. Primary Sense creates practical reporting to support:
GPs and researchers have contributed to developing Primary Sense to ensure reports are both high quality and practical in a general practice setting and align with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioner (RACGP) Standards and clinical guidelines.
Complementing current medication warnings in prescribing software, Primary Sense generates evidence based medication safety alerts targeted to the clinical situation of an individual patient at the time of prescribing by integrating diagnosis, medications and pathology data.
Primary Sense ensures that the reports generated support actionable, evidence based care in general practice. Medication safety alerts link to optimising care reports for patients. The system highlights potential quality and safety of care issues for your clinical consideration as well as linking to recommended interventions in a seamless way.
Primary Sense is fully automated and can be tailored by the individual user, with the ability to opt out patients at their request.
While general practice may know the health needs of patients who attend frequently, you may not know the status of those patients who are more infrequent attenders. This is especially important for those with increasing complexity. Primary Sense provides patient information delivered as timely, actionable reports. This allows clinicians to plan and coordinate care in an efficient and effective way.
The pseudonymised data is collected from your practice by Primary Sense, analysed and the specific reports your practice has requested are produced on request. These reports identify patients that would benefit from specific action or interventions.
