MIS Application and Automated Claiming
The MIS Application is a fully integrated digital product that helps ensure not only a comprehensive pregnancy record that will keep you and the woman (and baby) safe, but also give you confidence that the woman’s and your health data is secure and private.
MIS is an important part of the National Woman’s Maternity Record and helps allow real time integration and access to key information for both the Woman and Maternity teams using MCIS (Maternity Clinical Information System) in DHB tertiary hospitals.
Community midwives can access and update MIS through either a desktop/laptop set up or an iPad device.
The MIS iPad solution is an exciting new development that makes MIS even better by utilising current technology (smart navigation, flow and functionality) with the right amount of time and $.
The information entered into the woman’s record will automatically populate your claim, and MIS will electronically submit it to the Ministry of Health each day. You do not need to do anything else.
Maternity Notes (Pinks) and Paper Claiming
The MMPO provide and support community midwives choosing to use Maternity Notes (affectionately referred to as the ‘Pinks’) to manually record and maintain a full pregnancy record of the woman’s care.
We have a dedicated Data Entry Team whose priority is to enter information to generate claims and receive and disburse your Section 88 monies to you daily.
Section 88 Claiming and Payment Service Support
The MMPO work together with the Ministry of Health Section 88 team, and the College around professional guidelines, quality frameworks and the impact that these may have on Section 88 claiming.
Our IT Help Desk and Data Entry Consultants provide comprehensive Section 88 support, including claiming advice that helps to keep your claims and monies up to date and you safeguarded.
We will help and support you to manage all rejected claims, date clash claims and resubmissions.
Woman’s (Maternity) Notes
The MMPO have also been intimately involved in the design and development of an app that can be used by the woman giving her secure and private online access (through any digital device) to relevant parts of her pregnancy record. There is also the ability to help manage appointments and access key resources (including online leaflets).
This project involved considerable time and effort by the MMPO and both Aotearoa women and community midwives to gain clear and valuable input and insights. This was softly launched late last year and is now being used by over 1000 women throughout Aotearoa.
There are further planned releases that will bring even more access and benefits to both the woman and you the community midwife.
We plan to roll out access to the Woman’s Notes App to our MIS users, while the iPad is introduced to your care location (and this will be free of any cost).
Tiaki - The Community Midwifery App
Tiaki as a verb “meaning to guard, preserve, foster, protect and shelter. So, notions of care and protection are at the heart”, which aligns perfectly with the purpose of the MMPO.
Tiaki is being designed to better help and support you as a self-employed community midwife in your everyday working life to meet your indirect care and business needs and requirements with tailored functionality (all in one place).
The first stages of this development are live with a significant number of initiatives underway, supporting you to connect and communicate with people and organisations.
