With the introduction of Dynamics 365 Healthcare Accelerator, the Dynamics 365 Business Application Platform brings to life its first vertically focused set of Common Data Model extensions. The Dynamics 365 Healthcare accelerator solution adds a robust set of features to the already extensive productivity suite offered by Dynamics 365 specifically for Healthcare.
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss the Dynamics 365 Health solution and the many facets it encompasses.
Health Care Solution Components
The health care solution consists of several OOB features
· Leverages or extends existing Dynamics 365 entities to insure alignment with applications such as Sales, Service and Marketing
· Introduces new FHIR HL7 v3.0 entities aligned to the health market
· OOB relationships, forms and views to provide a baseline for learning and adoption
· OOB UCI application to showcase the rich features of CDS and how the Health accelerator can be used to quickly build new focused applications
· Some OOB Workflows to help support adoption and usage
· Custom controls which showcase the power of the data supported by the model
· Site Map additions to support the entities used by the CDM extensions
Site Map Extensions
With the Dynamics Health 365 Accelerator plugged in to the Dynamics 365 platform, you can optimize various aspects of care coordination, segment patients & provider based on EMR data as well as manage the care continuum of all patients leveraging the entire customer engagement solution within Dynamics 365.
Dynamics Health 365 adds another layer to the rich feature set in the base Dynamics 365 functionality by adding a new ribbon to help manage the special needs of your health organization. This ribbon contains entities to record patient data, appointments, procedures, nutrition orders, Care Plans, and a multitude of other functions.
The Healthcare accelerator provides a specific set of primary entities in support of the FHIR HL7 specification. Below are the entities that have been provided in the solution
· Healthcare Services
· Care Plans
· Allergy Intolerances
· Clinical Impression Problems
· Risk Assessments
· Episodes of care
· Medication Requests
· Medication Administration
The following represent the workflows that have been released at this time
· Appointments (EMR)
· Nutrition Orders
· Referral Requests
As mentioned the Dynamics 365 Health Accelerator utilizes out-of-the-box CRM entities along with customized entities to provide this new functionality. Below are some examples of some OOB forms and views which have been created to demonstrate these entities.
The ability to see EMR data directly within a patient or practitioner-specific form in Dynamics. The data model has been built to allow for Appointment, Procedure, Medication, and other patient/practitioner data can be seen directly in context in an extremely user-friendly interface.
Included with the Dynamics Health 365 Accelerator is a built-in patient/provider timeline which displays a sequential view of all activities that have occurred with the patient or provider. The timeline provides the ability to scale leveraging a slider and allows for the user to interact with data directly within the timeline.
Care Team Viewer
A clear view into who is responsible for the various facets of care within a patient’s care team is paramount. Therefore, within the Dynamics Health 365 Accelerator there is a clear and concise care team viewer that allows users to have a visual of who’s responsible for the patient’s care.
Healthcare Accelerator and Model Driven Power Apps
In the mobile-first, cloud-first world of today, being able to view/create EMR data in a mobile interface is something that has escaped the innovations of many providers today. Those days are now over with the introduction of model-driven apps within Dynamics 365. The Dynamics 365 Health Accelerator Solution contains a pre-built app that will fit the form factor of any phone or tablet to provider a seamless user-experience regardless of device.
Below is an example of a model driven Power App, built from the Healthcare Accelerator
The Healthcare Accelerator provides features to leverage or build new components and applications on top of the model, whether you are using Power Apps for canvas, model or UCI applications.
Please be looking for our next blog posts where we will be demonstrating how to extend the model, insert data into the model and create analytics. Also be on the lookout for the API model documentation for creating your own data import and extraction models.
Hello, is there a user guide or a detailed presentation of this app somewhere ?
Hello popujol, thank you for your question. Please be looking for more posts related to the accelerator each day this week, including configuring, extending, API reference and other materials related to leveraging the accelerator to build your own applications on top. We look forward to your feedback
Michael, we are very excited about Accelerator and interested in learning more so that we can get engaged quickly to start building out our application. Great work! Great concept!
Hello, me again :) how can we engage with the product team ? we would like to be informed about product roadmap, involved indsutry partners. Would there be some sample data to move faster in a presentation? Is there a Teams or Yammer to followup on evolutions?
