Astracore Patient Management System
The Astracore Patient Management System is based on the Astracore Framework, which allows us to readily configure systems specifically for each customer’s needs.
Astracore systems use the latest technology, can interface with almost any other system, are available anywhere there is internet, and have very strong security and privacy measures in place to satisfy EU, USA and AUS requirements.
Astracore systems are cloud-based and fully supported, with licencing based on a subscription model.
We also offer an optional App version of the system (available for most Android and Apple devices) allowing use ‘in the field’.
The Astracore Approach
The strength of Astracore solutions lies in their inherent configurability and our approach to implementing a new system is shown in the diagram below.
The Astracore Framework Implementation Approach
To configure a new system we follow a structured methodology, commencing with documenting and agreeing the following main items:
- The Object Model: describing the entities, their properties and relationships in detail (e.g., Sample/Specimen, Location, Client/Patient, Process, Storage Type etc.)
- The User Model: describing types of users and their Authorities (e.g. Admin, Clinician, Clerical, Subscriber etc.)
- The Business Process Model: capture the Events, Tasks, Messages, Decisions and Flow.
- The Usage Model: capture projected types and volumes of usage.
- The Reporting Model: reporting flow, report templates and reporting schedules
- Infrastructure: locations, security, backup and disaster recovery requirements
Once these items are agreed we can rapidly produce the operational system complete with system documentation. We will then:
- Test, Review and Optimise (cycle until sign off).
- Finalise Documentation

|Prescriptions||A Drug database allows for easy and safe prescribing.|
Reports and Queries
Analysis and reporting of data is comprehensively available with charts, dashboards, filters, reports and listings, to name a few. Most are able to be created, maintained and executed by users however if something very complex is required, Astracore can provide customised views and reports.
All reports, filter and list results can be printed, saved and/or downloaded for further analysis in CSV format (with other formats available upon request).
Reports can be auto generated and emailed to pre-defined distribution lists.
There are three main functions available as per below.
1. Flash Filter Function
This is a built in multi-criteria search function available virtually anywhere data is shown in a list format. it is used for rapid querying of data, with simple sort, filter, and wildcard search.
2. Reports Filter Function
A comprehensive, user-definable reporting tool with multiple levels of selection criteria, filtering, ordering, sorting, joining and renaming data to display. These reports can be saved, edited and executed at any time.
3. Custom Reports
Multi-faceted and very complex reports can be defined by Astracore to customer requirements.
The system is able to store electronic media such as documents, photos, images, audio and video, subject to data storage requirements. Please discuss further if this is required.
Interfacing to any other systems (provided they are able to interface) can be provided.
We use Amazon Web Services to implement our systems however we are able to use any other suitable cloud-based service provider if required.
