RALS data collection video

E-mail Print

The RALS team at Monash Health have specified a WebQI project that tracks the status of a patient as they transfer to Subacute.

A demonstration video has been put up on vimeo, here.

The video shows how to use the WebQI RALS data collection project:

  • Add a patient
  • Update the status of patients in the list
  • View the current Status Reports.

It is demonstrated on an iPad, which will be the principle input device used. It is similar in other browsers - Internet Explorer and Firefox, etc.


Conference Presentation on LOS Management in WebQI

E-mail Print

An oral presentation at The Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine Annual Scientific Meeting, June 2013  discussed Length Of Stay management within WebQI. The paper was 'Length of stay management in a subacute service within the activity based funding framework' / Barbara Workman and Keith Stockman.

The page shows all presentations, so search for 'WebQI' to find the paper itself.


Online HL7 Viewer

E-mail Print

You can access the online HL7 viewer here.

The viewer allows you to paste in a HL7 message, which is then parsed and presented in breakdown. The names of the fields, segments, etc are shown.

It is intended as a means of quickly assessing a message. Its particularly helpful when you need to look at unfamiliar message types, as the schema lookup is done for you.


Patient Location now automatically updated: extended HL7 integration

E-mail Print

WebQI is now capable of close integration with a hospital PAS. A WebQI HL7 listener can now receive any broadcast messages from a PAS and process them appropriately.

At Monash Health, this integration has resulted in:

  • Immediate updates to patient location (i.e. ward and bed).
  • Discharges are immediately indicated on active WebQI records.
  • Admissions to a speciality are placed on that Units 'Quick Pick' list: a WebQI record can be created from this list with a single click.

This integration follows from the earlier HL7 messaging, which allows a query of patient demographics for a given patient. This can be used to partially populate a patient record.


Length Of Stay Review and Management

E-mail Print

WebQI now includes Length Of Stay (LOS) Management and Review functionality. The functionality has been deployed within Subacute units at Monash Health.

The expected data of discharge is recorded after initial review of a patient's admission - this is a clinical assessment that is determined after discussion within the clinical team.

The FIM (Functional Impairment Measure) score on admission (and discharge) is also recorded. This allows a determination of an expected length of stay. This expected LOS is in comparison to a national cohort.

At suitable intervals (eg. fortnightly), the LOS of all patients is reviewed. The patients are listed in priority order, with those patients whose LOS is above a threshold listed first.

The functionality is being expanded to include ANSNAC classifications, in direct association with a patient's impairment.



WebQI is on online clinical management system. Initially designed for use by clinicians working in hospitals, WebQI can be used in a range of health record management settings.

  • Web based: works in any browser on any device.
  • Clinical Handover and Clinical Audit
  • Full range of analysis and reporting options.
