Portuguese Health Centers to Implement Integrated Patient Record
Five healthcare facilities in Portugal have implemented a hospital information system to integrate patient records. For this project, Espirito Santo Saúde (ESSAUDE), the private healthcare group that delivered the systems, partnered with vendor iSoft. Even within one month of the project, the five centers were using patient administration systems in several departments such as outpatient, inpatient, infirmary, and pharmacy. The system has been installed in only four months and is running on a single database (the solution provides integrated >> >> patient management, clinical and financial applications across the five centres). The hospital information solution allows patients’ medical histories to be managed electronically with clinical tools which provide accurate information for point-of-care tests as well as providing access to previous diagnoses and test results.
