We’ve added another module, “PenTask” to our popular PenDQC package that allows facilities to create one-time or repeatable tasks that require attention outside of QA/QC functions required with imaging hardware.
In PenTask, a task can be assigned to an individual and/or to a department. Each individual or department can have a dashboard to stay current with task items assigned. Tasks that are current are green, those nearing due are yellow, and those that are late are colored in red.
The manager’s dashboard can review tasks for timeliness remotely by individual, department, location and/or enterprise. The dashboard overview can provide insight into temporary assignment for vacations or absences.
Common examples of pre-populated tasks in the PenTask module are; reminders for patient exam and letter printing, rectifying unresolved exams, collection of CE credits, first pass for annual audit, quarterly productivity reports, etc. Tasks for other scheduled needs can be easily facilitated.
PenTask allows facilities to set-up task reminders. For example; daily for exam letters, Tuesdays for recall letters, reminder to check for CE additions the first Wednesday of each month, etc. Tasks can be created for checking flashlights, filter changing, spring cleaning, ordering monthly supplies, checking hard disk space, etc.
PenTask also allows files to be attached to a task event. For example; scans of service record or a CE certificate, an image (jpg for example), a PDF, Word document, and/or wave file (audio).
