iGrow software has been designed to provide a system for monitoring growth including height, weight, head circumference and BMI. The system will work both anonymously or with individual patient details.

The data is stored in a standard SQL database and is therefore readily available for analysis using standard report writing tools or export as a csv file etc.

The data recorded can be as simple or as complex as you require, obviously the more data recorded the more in depth the analysis that can be performed. The following data can be recorded in the system however, none of the data fields are mandatory.

Recorded Data:

  • Individual personal details including name address etc.
  • Height, weight and head circumference. On entering height and weight BMI is automatically calculated.
  • 10 free fields where the data is defined by the user. For example if the user wishes to analyse the results based on school attended then this information could be recorded in one of the free fields.

Included in the system:

  • WHO 0-18 years standard charts.
  • Turners Charts.
  • Down’s Charts.
  • Sickle Cell Charts.
  • Ability to email charts/notes to authorised recipients.

Surveillance System Functions:

  • Data analysis by recorded information, ie, Height weight BMI etc by ethnic group, breast feeding, smoking habits etc.
  • Export data in various formats.

Screening individual records:

  • Individual growth patterns can be recorded and viewed on standard charts.
  • Data sharing across disciplines, (growth charts can be accessed by authorised users) so Social services, health visitors, paediatricians etc all have instance access.
  • Charts and notes can be freely emailed within the authorised user group (no external email avoiding possible accidental emailing of personal data to unauthorised personnel).

Interfacing:

  • The system has been designed with a standard API which will enable our system to work as a ‘plug-in’ to any existing system facilitating data sharing and seamless integration.
  • The system will also work as a standalone product.
  • We are pleased to announce that Milton Keynes General Hospital NHS Trust has recently ordered the iGrow system to link in with their current EPR (Electronic Patient Record) so they can utilise the growth charts throughout the hospital without the need for paper based charts.
