The triage module in LVM’s E-Centaurus software uses the protocols authored by Drs. Barton Schmitt and David Thompson. The software fully supports triage nurses – making their jobs easier and more efficient. Advantages include:

  • Customization: LVM will customize the software screens and fields to support users’ unique call process.
  • Frequently Used Protocols: This option presents a pick list of the “top 15 or 20” protocols of your choosing. This time-saving feature can be changed as needed to reflect seasonal variations.
  • Medication/Dosage Calculator: When OTC medications are recommended within Care Advice, the nurse can access the software’s dosage calculator – saving time while enhancing accuracy.
  • Quick-entry screens: This is for call registration by a non-clinician. If your organization chooses to implement this call flow to improve service standards, the software fully supports it. Call queues can bridge multiple databases and/or be filtered by role and service line.
  • Question or Advice-specific Comments: E-Centaurus allows ad hoc information to be captured at the point (question or advice piece) it occurs.
  • On-call Schedule Automation: The software supports automated on-call schedule imports, allowing practices to send any updates to the on-call form via email and reducing manual maintenance.
  • Integration with Electronic Office Triage:  E-Centaurus can be integrated with Doctor’s Office Calls (D.O.C.) – an office-hours triage product for daytime use in physician practices and clinics (both use the Schmitt/Thompson protocols).
  • Analysis and QA Reports:  LVM’s software can report on every data element collected. Analysis of outcomes, referral rates, protocol usage, and operational performance is included in a comprehensive Management Report module.
