Practis from Blueflower is a patient data administration system which is unique in that it was conceived and initially developed by a hospice for use by hospices. Originally designed by St Ann's Manchester with the needs of palliative care firmly in mind.

Practis provides a secure patient data management system focused on the needs of hospices and palliative care units.  Enabling the user to store and retrieve information in relation to patients, referrals, diagnosis, past history and events, next of kin, and a wealth of other essential data. Once the information is stored, reports may be generated in order to assist health care professionals and management in the running of the organisation, which can prove invaluable.

Practis is continually being developed in order to reflect the needs of the hospice movement and innovations in technology.
