On January 24th , the Department de Salut [Catalan Healthcare Ministry] presented a new technological solution to release from paperwork healthcare professionals’. A new Electronic Healthcare Record (HES) it’s been designed in order to agglutinate the clinical and data information from any person enhancing a better time management in terms of efficency. 40M€ have been invested to that purpose and it will be deployed during the following 4 years.
Pol Pérez, ICT General Coordinator from the Departament de Salut explained that the project focuses on a digital and hollistic healthcare strategy in Catalonia fostering the transformation of the public system. “HES will become the functional and technical citizen’s database regarding the most necessary and important information needed to perform healthcare services, acting as a digital transformation trigger for the Catalan Healthcarfe System.”
“This technological innovation will directly impact on a short term activities but also in our future Healthcare System”.
Pérez insisted on the possibility that “professionals will be able to use a system of homogeneous and unified information from different tech tools, databases (there are currently 22) and practical guides to achieve a more coordinated work”. In addition, “this technological innovation will directly impact on a short term activities but also in our future Healthcare System”.
The integration difficulties of these equipments, an obsolete software that incompatibilized or hampered the coexistence with new operating systems and the antiquity of the present systems (ECAP and HC3 created by the end of the 90s), have been some of the main problems faced. Òscar Solans, eHealth Functional Manager at Departament de Salut told that “the tool will show to the professional common information of remarkable importance when needed, in real time. More quality, easier and faster to be uploaded, checked and analyzed”.
“This solution will fit the professional’s daily tasks”
Solans explains that HES will show the information according to the pathology of the patient: (a) the professional when entering into IT system will access to the clinical situation of the specific patient; According to the role of the professional (b) different kind of information will be shown wheter if you are a doctor, a nurse or a physiotherapist. Finally, “this solution will fit the professional’s daily tasks”.
Finally, Communications and CSR of the Servei Català de la Salut [Catalan Healthcare Service] has shared a HES decalogue to summarize the achievements.
