Travel Health Advice and News in Inca Clinic

The Winter 12 release of Inca Clinic ™ gives you the ability to provide patients with Travel Health Information and improves the use of travel health news feeds.

To achieve this Inca Clinic ™ takes advantage of the Chatter feature of Salesforce. Think of Chatter like your clinics internal Facebook or LinkedIn. It allows you to share, comment, 'like', store files, web links and even YouTube videos and then automatically inform your colleagues. See this Getting Started with Chatter video to get a general introduction.

Travel Health News feeds and Clinic Chatter

Clinic Chatter lets you 'tag' interesting articles from RSS feeds and save them into your clinics Travel Health News Chatter feed. For example, this the WHO Disease Outbreak news feed:

Inca Clinic attempts to pick out the most important words like the name of the disease or the country and automatically tag these words for you. Chatter uses the same # (hashe tag) format as twitter to help index information.

So why is tagging important? The tags help Inca Clinic determine what the article is about, and you can then search for articles using the tag terms by using Global Search. The tags are also used by Inca Clinic to provide context-aware news articles related to a country or diseases. During a consultation, the Health News link looks at the country itinerary and pulls in Travel Health news saved in the Inca Clinic Chatter feed. It uses the tags to help it pull in the appropriate news articles:

To access travel health news in the Consultation, click the Health Advice link. This will display articles in your Chatter feed that contain the name of the county in the title or in the tag. You can also search for articles on diseases such as Rabies. Clicking on the link opens the web site that published the article.

Adding Web Sites, Documents and YouTube videos

You can include links to web sites, upload documents or even You Tube videos and have then accessible to you staff and patients. There is a default Chatter group called after you clinics name. By adding documents and links this group they become available in the Consultation

Travel Health Library
