Care plans in MMEx are created as a template of activities that are of a particular type and have an associated schedule.
Once allocated to a patient, MMEx constructs a visual representation of a care plan (Figure 1).
MMEx can aggregate all of the care plan activities and makes decisions on an optimal frequency of assessment for each activity.
All members of the health team are prompted by the MMEX integrated schedule to provide evidence based population screening and care as the patient attends the clinic for other reasons, which over time supports widespread population coverage even with limited resources.
A reporting function in MMEx allows a clinic or health professional to provide lists of all patients that have been allocated specific care plans.
MMEx is able to assess the data across all services utilising the application, increasing accuracy of the population denominator and reducing duplicate reporting against individuals.
The benefits of the care plans in MMEx become even more apparent when coupled with the capability of sharing the care plans along with the patient record with the entire health care team.
For this reason, offline access to client records, has been developed using an iPad version of MMEx that is capable of operating in disconnected mode with a synchronisation feature, and will be expanded for future use to ensure reliable access to MMEX care plan functionality and decision support tools.
MMEx is currently used in a wider setting than the Kimberley region of WA and is used by a broad range of health services.
MMEx features currently 139 different care plan templates with 855 different activities (MMEx, 2011).
