Healthcare Management Prize: Winners 2014

1st Place:

The electronic treatment diary EPI-Vista®
Submitted by: Northern German Epilepsy Centre for Children and Adolescents (Norddeutsches Epilepsiezentrum für Kinder und Jugendliche)

EPI-Vista is an electronic treatment calendar that includes the medical record for seizure sufferers. EPI-Vista was developed with the goal of facilitating and guiding treatment and optimizing therapy. At a single glance, the behaviour of the seizure frequency per day can be recognized from the time interval represented. The reaction of the seizures to the treatment can be precisely appraised, which cannot be achieved with any other known technique. EPI-Vista can be used by the doctor and the patient. In outpatient practice, the division of labor has proven itself: the patient enters the seizures and the medication that has actually been taken, notes his condition, and makes supplementary entries. The physician records the anamnesis, all findings, the serum levels, and his comments about the progression or course of the disease. Data exchange between physician and patient has become easier. A clever security concept prevents any unauthorized access to the data.
