Wireless data management system helps haemophilia A patients track treatment progress

CSL Behring : 26 August, 2008  (New Product)
The HeliTrax System state-of-the-art wireless Internet-based data management system introduced by CSL Behring is enabling haemophilia A patients who use Helixate FS, Antihaemophilic Factor (Recombinant), and their treatment providers to track treatment progress in real time.
The system allows for a comprehensive view of a patient's progress, with young patients relaying information about bleeding events and their use of Helixate FS to their haemophilia treatment centre via the handheld device between office visits. The HeliTrax System, used in conjunction with Helixate FS treatment, is designed to improve patient-physician communications and therapy management.

'HeliTrax provides clinicians with the rapid, comprehensive clinical view they need to make assessments about treatment, it eliminates paperwork and helps to streamline patient data management,' said Jill Leone, RN, CCRP, a haematology nurse who helped develop the system. 'For young patients, HeliTrax helps them keep in touch with their therapy and motivates them to stay on track.'

Physicians monitoring haemophilia A patients previously relied on paper forms filled out by the patients or their caregivers, which did not always provide necessary clinical information in a timely, clear and concise way. HeliTrax not only tracks a patient's therapy as it happens - including medication usage and inventory - but allows the hemophilia treatment center to generate a one-page, easy-to-read, full-colour clinical report of the patient's progress. These private, secure reports, which help reduce documentation and transcription errors, are compliant with both the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Additionally, the system is backed up every 48 hours, ensuring that the patient's complete record is saved. CSL Behring has no access to patient data and all data are managed by a third-party company.

HeliTrax is also equipped with a camera to document bleeding events. Patients can quickly capture a high-quality picture of the bleed, which can then be seamlessly transmitted electronically to their treatment team, who can assess the seriousness of the event and often save the patient from making unnecessary trips to the emergency room.
