Integrates with your current practice software

The Patient Assistance Tool (PAT) has a step by step approach to chronic disease management and generates the required documentation for Medicare items. The general GPMP automatically generates a TCA as well.  

PAT automatically links to Best Practice. In the general GPMP, active problems from the BP health summary are automatically extracted to formulate an individualised approach. Once completed the GPMP  and TCA output goes into the Care Plan Section of BP.


Four stage system from Patient to Report


Consult from waiting room to clinic

After coaching on use by the Nurse, the patient can use a tablet running Google Chrome in the waiting room to answer questions normally asked by the nurse and then the questions trigger appropriate education information which they watch. So the waiting room becomes a virtual consulting room. Or if you wish, this section can be done conventionally by your nurse using a desktop angled so that the patient can see the screen. 

The process continues in the consulting room where the doctor uses PAT on his/her desk top with Yes/No/NA click option instead of touch. PAT  immediately generates a row in the GPMP for any new problem determined by doctor answers. Google speech recognition allows the doctor to minimize typing. Only problem areas get into the GPMP and there is an easy delete/insert option.

There are a number of motivational interviewing style Wizards (Smoking, Weight, Exercise, Chronic pain, and Emotional reactions to starting insulin) which the patient works through either by themselves (on a tablet) or in in conjunction with a Nurse using a desktop. The Wizards are available as a stand alone annual subscription option or included in the Full package subscription.  


Works with your current computers

Use with Windows tablets and computers in consulting room.

You can use any tablet that runs Google Chrome in the waiting room.


I have used PAT in my practice since it’s early days. I have found it to be a very comprehensive way of doing quality, useful care plans. It provides up to date and evidence based guidelines for managing chronic diseases and makes care plans something of value to the patient rather than just of financial benefit to the doctor. It involves the patient in their care plan as well as educating them in the process.  I would highly recommend it to any doctor who wants to provide quality care to their patients.
