Latest National QI Programme metrics and increased functionality added to EndoDIVER

Manitex is pleased to announce the latest release V 4.2.1 of EndoDIVER, the Endoscopy Information Portal. 

EndoDIVER meets all information and reporting requirements for an Endoscopy Unit, allowing users to monitor their Quality Indicators and submit data to the National Gastrointestinal (GI) Endoscopy Quality Improvement Programme (+) on a quarterly basis.

EndoDIVER is also used by clinical staff for ad hoc reports, statistics, extracts, research, clinical audit, etc. EndoDIVER has allowed our customers to support and encourage continual process improvements.

The National GI Endoscopy Quality Improvement Programme benchmarks individual Hospital performance against national standards and other Hospitals. It has been in operation since 2011 and has contributed to positive progression on many quality indicators by Irish Hospitals.

Manitex is constantly engaging with our customer base to determine what new features should be added to their systems. With EndoDIVER V 4.2.1 a whole host of new features have been added, including the latest  metrics required by the National QI Programme (see below) and many other customer requirements. A range of new features has been added to make EndoDIVER more user friendly and improve the efficiency of data access.

Providing users with the ability to easily drill down into the Endoscopy data is a core feature of EndoDIVER. Clinical users can navigate all detailed data entered into the EndoRAAD system (*), create reports and analyse data without the need for any specialist technical skills. Relevant users can also be granted access to easily view the data for any Hospital within multi-campus groups with only a single click.
