CareLocker is a patient-centric cloud architecture that strengthens Bleepa’s functionality to support care delivery across multiple provider settings in a secure and scalable way.
Where Bleepa enables access and sharing of medical imaging and clinical communications, facilitating creation of a mobile complete patient record, CareLocker provides a patient-centric way of securely storing the data.
Because the patient record is de-centralised, it can be accessed by any care setting through open APIs (the programming interface that allows two applications to talk to each other) such as FHIR (the standard for exchanging electronic health records).
Building a patient-by-patient architecture
CareLocker’s patient-centric cloud data architecture stores medical data at an individual patient level with access control to all subsets of a patient’s data as the data builds. It offers opportunities for improved storage optimisation making it more cost-effective than traditional data storage architectures.
Most importantly, CareLockers can be built on a patient-by-patient basis, allowing organisations to transition to a cloud architecture as patients enter care pathways rather than having to undertake mass data migrations.
Bridging the gap between care settings
Where Bleepa is installed in multiple regional provider settings, the migration of data into a patient-specific record can happen at a regional level, breaking down provider siloes. This will be particularly important for community diagnostic hubs.
CDHs will typically complete a suite of diagnostic tests, the results of which must all be made available to the clinical teams, both in the primary and secondary care setting, creating a patient pathway that bridges multiple care settings.
This end-to-end patient-specific pathway requires a digital infrastructure designed to both connect clinical teams and manage the associated data flow. Bleepa, as the application and user interface, and CareLocker, as the underlying data architecture, combined provide the digital framework needed.
