IHIS Major Components Electronic Health RecordPre-requirements: Standardized, complete and correct electronic medical data collection Existence of IT tools for data analysis and statistical reports generationAction: National EHR (Electronic Health Record)implementationObjective: resource allocation and management according to 17national or even EU-level policiesMay 25, 2011 18. 2. IHIS Major ComponentsElectronic Health RecordEHR Electronic Health Record EHR is a complex system (comprising of hardware, software,people, policies and processes) which: Gathers data from multiple sources Is used by clinicians as a primary information source at the point of care Offers decision support in evidence based healthcare. The term describes the highest level of functionality in 18medical data computerized managementMay 25, 2011 19. 2. IHIS Major Components Electronic Patient File Patient related medical data, gathered in a consistent anduniform manner, nationwide, constitutes the ElectronicPatient File (EPF), sometimes referred to as ElectronicMedical Record (EMR) EPF is generated at birth, is updated throughout the patientslife and is stored in the system for an undetermined period oftime. EPFs must be interoperable, secure, consistent, safe and 19must ensure data confidentiality.5/25/2011 20. 2. IHIS Major Components Electronic Patient File The medical data stored in the EPF canbe accessed by the authorised cliniciansat any time and from any location. Connection with systems for healthinsurance management All medical service providers must contribute in the EPF in astandardized format. This does not mean all medical service providers must usethe same Health Information System, but the Ministry of 20Health should enforce the use of a minimum set ofstandards, in order to ensure interoperability.
