Our Physiotherapy/MSK app provides user-friendly graphics to assist in diagnosis. Instead of drawing on paper, we use a full 360 degree view of a body chart, allowing clinicians to click an area to record relevant information.
The app can be used online/offline and can exchange data with existing trust systems.

Onboarding and offboarding
Training is provided as part of the implementation project. The trust should nominate clinical champions / expert users to deal with routine queries after implementation. Documentation is also provided and there is help within the system.
The apps are intuitive, based on current recording methods, so will be familiar to staff.
|End-of-contract data extraction||The data stored from our systems is usually pushed back into existing EPR. If no system exists, a copy of new data collected will be stored on the server housed at the trust; the trust always has access and control of its data. If the trust chooses not to use the app, the data would remain accessible on the trust server.|
All data will be extracted from the system and provided to Trusts in JSON/XML format.
Once the trusts confirms safe receipt of data on their systems Sidqam Ltd will destroy all the data present on our servers and provide a written confirmation of the same.
Data extraction in another format other than JSON/XML will incur a cost / tbf.
