Medsphere Systems Corporation announces that its Multi-Disciplinary Treatment Plan (MDTP) solution had been approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

FREMONT, CA: Medsphere Systems Corporation, the largest provider of affordable and interoperable healthcare information technology (IT) solutions and services, has announced that its Multi-Disciplinary Treatment Plan (MDTP) solution had been approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The MDTP solution is a web-based application that acts as a central hub for a networked group of caregivers who recognize clinical problems, objectives, and interventions for use in treatment planning.

MDTP is used by clinicians from different disciplines to collectively develop and update individual patient plans, including specific, measurable, and achievable objectives with clear steps towards accomplishment. The MDTP application automatically involves the DSM 5 diagnosis recorded in the chart and relevant assessment scores. Adjustments to the treatment plan are monitored, and members of the care team have access to a comprehensive description of every change.

"The treatment plan is at the heart of caring for inpatient psychiatric patients, which is why we spent considerable time and energy developing MDTP," said Medsphere CEO Irv Lichtenwald. "The MDTP application provides extensive support for the care team and makes care coordination much more efficient, which in turn enables more effective treatment for the patient. The inclusion of MDTP with CareVue's other inpatient-focused functionalities makes for a robust and comprehensive psychiatric inpatient platform."

MDTP allows for the collection of signatures from team members, patients, guardians, family members, and witnesses, in addition to treatment planning. It also describes the patient's advantages and challenges, warns providers to near-due and past-due targets, allows team members to be assigned for interventions, and involves a patient chart summary with information on medications, vitals, problems, diet, assessments, and other relevant information.

CareVue applications like MDTP, which are developed to meet the requirements of both inpatient acute and psychiatric or behavioral health providers, encourage a level of effective, collaborative interaction that raises the bar for patient safety and treatment efficiency. The incorporation of MDTP with a detailed clinical platform such as CareVue allows providers to submit orders, review results, and access comprehensive patient information always, distinguishing the system from simple behavioral health applications that only allow taking notes.
