Pen CS Pty Ltd (PENCS) have developed Topbar as an adjunct to the GP Clinical Desktop System to deliver useful tools and decision support information for the primary care sector at the point of care. Currently Topbar works with MD3 and BestPractice.

Topbar is designed to provide prompts and relevant information to all clinic staff based on the patients being seen and also those who are on the waiting list for the day. The user interface is minimalistic and allows the users to focus on the patient details and clinical information but provides important additional tools and information. Complete and accurate patient records are a key component of primary health care and Topbar assists all staff with this important aim.

Topbar uses apps for different functionality - each app has a short user guide:

Atrial Fibrilation Topbar App

CAT PLUS Prompts App

Cleansing App

Health Path Ways App

Health Care Homes App


Patient Health Summary App

Waiting Room App
