Your Electronic Patient Chart; your content, your care pathways, your business rules; your clinical expertise in your intelligent medical record. The Path to a Paperless Hospital.
Vitro captures complex clinical data for analysis, allowing you to reduce costs, improve clinical decision support, and ultimately improve patient care & outcomes – It documents the clinician-patient activity in an efficient & paperless environment, that is familiar and intuitive, it retains the look and feel of your current paper documents, creates an electronic version and adds intelligence.
Move to a stage of the HIMSS EMR Adoption Model that meets your business needs and requirements. Vitro’s inbuilt functionality means that no matter what stage you reach it is already paving the way for you to become fully paperless at stage seven.
Vitro works by taking an image of your existing paper document and using it as an electronic background on which to overlay user controls, Vitro retains your existing intellectual property, increases user adoption and reduces change management. Scripting adds intelligence and the result is an electronic version of your document which now captures your data digitally and in a familiar manner.
Do the following challenges sound familiar?
Ultimately, healthcare providers are being required to do more with less, to provide better patient safety & care at a lower cost. The question is, how do you overcome those challenges in a way that meets business, financial and stakeholders’ needs?
Vitro's flexibility means no matter what stage your hospital is at, it can provide a solution that accommodates the level of ICT implementation that you would like to achieve. Create a totally paperless hospital or use Vitro's stand alone functionality; create a single view from multiple disparate IT systems, use it as a clinical decision support tool or document management system. Vitro's approach allows you to take any activity or document that is paper based and complete it electronically.
A platform so flexible that no matter what your organisation size or budget we have a solution that will suit you.

“We started working with Sláinte Healthcare in late 2013 to implement their Vitro platform throughout our Operation Smile programs worldwide. The requirements we put in front of the Slainte team were significant: we needed to manage and use patient information in disconnected, semi-connected and connected environments; a system that would seamlessly address the diversity of our volunteer health providers, their languages and even cultural requirements impacting our work; a tool that would be so intuitive that even the least technologically savvy could learn how to use within hours; a stable and flexible platform that would allow for growth and modifications based on the needs of the care setting; really something that would allow for our clinicians around the world to reap the benefits of technology while remaining focused on their patients. We also wanted a system that we could use for trend analysis and improvement processes. Within weeks the Sláinte team had already worked a prototype which we took to the field, the response from our volunteer clinicians was overwhelmingly positive! There is a sense of great excitement at Operation Smile and we can see enormous potential in how this is going to help the organization. Working with the Sláinte Healthcare team is a pleasure and we are really looking forward to the final stages of the project this year.” Ruben Ayala MD, Senior VP of Programs and Medical Affairs @ Operation Smile, Inc.

One of the primary functions of the Department of Pharmacy is the preparation and supply of chemotherapy to patients treated in the Day Therapy Unit. Almost all of these products are prepared ‘in-house’ in a state-of-the-art clean room facility located within the pharmacy department. The ‘manufacture’ and labelling of each product for every patient is ‘controlled’ by a work sheet which was produced manually by dispensary staff. The work sheets and labels were then supplied to the clean room the day before or on the day of the patients’ scheduled treatment.
Due to the fact that every work sheet and label was produced manually proved to be a considerable workload for the dispensary and clean room staff and also meant there was significant opportunities for errors relating to the spelling of patient names, dates of birth, names and strengths of products, expiry dates and batch numbers. The preparation of these work sheets and labels was extremely labour intensive and meant that clean room staff were always ‘catching up’ with patient appointments and pharmacy staff were working long hours with considerable overtime being accrued.
In December 2013, approximately one month after opening, a decision was made to engage Sláinte Healthcare to create and electronic chemotherapy manufacturing work sheet in ‘Vitro’. This was done with the objective of automating a number of the manual steps in the preparation of the work sheets and also removing error-prone data entry by using patient information contained within ‘Vitro’ such as patients name and date of birth. The new functionality of ‘Vitro’ went ‘live’ on 24 February 2014 after comprehensive testing.
The advantages of using ‘Vitro’ in the preparation of clean room work sheets and the partial automation of this process may be summarised as follows:
