Medtech Evolution Allied Health is a comprehensive Patient Management System, specially developed for Allied Health professionals with Medtech’s accumulated domain experience and deep understanding of the future direction of the industry.
Additionally, the software incorporates state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that not only review application health and send out alerts, but also routinely checks for key environmental factors that may impact the system.
The interface of Evolution is very quick and intuitive for both experienced and new staff and works well over local and distant connections providing secure access to the system with all backups and updates applied automatically by Medtech in the night hours. The opportunity to host other software that is utilised by our company on the same cloud interface is also much appreciated. I would recommend the Medtech cloud system to other users.”
Using Evolution and working with the Medtech team so far has been a great experience. The Evolution implementation was smooth. I could call and 'reach out' to the Medtech Implementation Team, whenever required throughout the entire process.
The transition from Medtech32 to Evolution was smooth. The Implementation Team instilled us with confidence throughout the Evolution implementation process. Everything was discussed and resolved proactively by the Medtech team.
Evolution also provides a better understanding of the invoicing of the patient. Returning to the Queue the next day we are able to see a summary of what was updated on the patient, what was invoiced and what was pending.
Dealing with experienced and responsive people at Medtech made all the difference. They continue to be responsive with support now that we are running ‘live’ in Evolution.
Evolution helps provide a standard way of doing things… no matter where you are working it’s the same system. Even if you don’t know who’s at the front or the back, we know it’s the same communications and way of managing the patient.
Medtech Evolution Allied Health contains a newly developed module called SOTAP, which has been specifically designed in conjunction with physiotherapists for use by Allied Health providers.
With SOTAP, documentation is simple, with auto-population of ACC details which helps to decrease transcription errors. SOTAP also enables the ability to track treatment numbers for accidents. A full range of body pane charts, flags, tests and goals allows the provider to capture all the information about their client, and allows documenting in a logical flow. Goals and PSFS scores are easily entered and referred to throughout the consultation notes.
Moving through the different aspects of the patient manager is much easier with the ability to retain your clinical notes so you can document as you go. There also is the ability to park and complete notes - which gives the provider the flexibility to document the notes throughout the day and finalise them once they are complete.
Medtech Evolution Allied Health is highly modular, allowing clinicians to select the required functionality for their particular practice.
Consultation Notes - The Consultation Screen captures all the required information within one screen and improves user experience while reducing the complexity around recording consultation notes.

Customisable task categories mean the doctor can now filter their task list to display only ‘prescription requests’, ‘phone calls’ and ‘GP2GP transfer in’, and can action them as frequently as required. By having a ‘patient transfer in’ task category, planning for your admin time is made easier – you can have a clear overview of how many patient transfer files you need to review.
With one-click, improved filtering now allows you to see if the patient you have selected has multiple tasks, further down your list. Similarly, you can identify urgent or recurring tasks at once by utilising the enhanced filter. Medtech Evolution’s advanced Task Manager makes viewing and actioning urgent, or frequently required tasks faster.
Medtech Evolution’s Left Navigation Pane has multiple uses. This user-centric feature allows a ‘quick glance’ overview of the patient record, appointment book, worklist, task manager and provider inbox. You can quickly access and launch several functions. Providers can have an overview of their appointment book for the day, including the status of each of their patients, without having to have the full Appointment Book module open.
You can view past appointments at a glance and open them to understand pending actions from the Worklist section. A quick glance at the Task section allows you to have an overview of any pending staff tasks, as well as tasks for the patient on the palette. Finally, having a quick reference to your provider inbox means you are able to access and action inbox results as soon as they come in – the best way to view urgent blood results without needing to navigate away from your screen.
Appointment books display irrespective of templates set up, and a full actions menu is available to allow setup, navigation and location of appointments as necessary. If relevant you can navigate through multiple locations like select date, provider or location simply with one-click
This significantly reduces the number of appointment booking errors, by customising appointments. You can also allocate a name, time length, gender, provider and colour etc. Most practices have multiple appointment types which each have their own time lengths, with other appointments only being offered by certain providers. This feature simplifies the process for receptionists, meaning they only need to select the appointment type. The time is automatically adjusted to suit thus avoiding errors. This ensures no extended appointments are booked at the incorrect times, meaning fewer interruptions to your busy schedule.
The ‘future appointment warning’ feature reduces the number of Did Not Attend (DNA’s) in a clinic. Receptionists now receive a prompt when a patient already has a future appointment, and have the option of replacing or adding to their future appointments at the time of booking. This then saves time when booking appointments because it’s no longer necessary to search for the patient’s appointment summary.
Medtech Evolution allows any user, to mark a patient as DNA on their appointment book. This provides more visibility across the clinic as to those who have not arrived for their appointment, it also allows reporting and analysis of DNA’s in your practice.
This enables the users to navigate through Medtech Evolution in a more intuitive and familiar way. Shortcut and function keys from Medtech32 have been retained, decreasing the learning curve.
Enjoy a more user friendly interface which relies less on memorising locations of modules. It also allows full customisation for users to suit their role. There are larger icons which are grouped together in a logical format.
