Children’s polyclinics Nos. 110 and 122 were the first to start operating in the new system.
In two children’s clinics in the capital, a pilot project was launched to work exclusively with electronic medical records… It will allow doctors to get away from unnecessary paperwork. As a result, a decision will be made to expand it to all city polyclinics.
“Today, in two children’s polyclinics, we are starting an experiment on maintaining medical records exclusively in electronic form. Polyclinics # 110 and 122 will not work with paper cards in two buildings. This gives the doctor the opportunity to devote more time to the patient, rather than filling out the documents. It is also convenient for the townspeople: today the electronic card is a single repository of documents, it actually follows the patient. It doesn’t matter if he changed his place of residence or the clinic, ”said
Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
According to her, the electronic card provides access to medical information 24 hours a day. It can be presented to any attending physician – in city, federal or private clinics. A complete transfer of this data into electronic form will help to better interact among specialists of various fields and medical institutions.
“For several years now, all medical records have been kept in electronic form. But until 2016, all medical information was kept in paper format. And now both the doctor and the patient are not very comfortable: to see the early documents, you need to turn to paper. Therefore, for several years now we have been working on the digitization of children’s medical records, ”said the deputy mayor.
To date, more than a million medical records of children have been transferred to electronic form – in total, this is 11 million documents. The work is planned to be completed by the end of this summer, which means that the polyclinics will be able to move from the experiment to the full-fledged work with documents, Anastasia Rakova added.
Moscow has long been preparing for project launch… According to the chief physician of the children’s city polyclinic No. 122, Alexander Bragin, 100 percent of paper cards – more than 13 thousand pieces – have been digitized in their medical institution. All personnel have undergone special training. “We welcome this step – a step into the digital clinic of the future. This will give doctors maximum time to communicate with young patients. It will be convenient for parents, and, most importantly, it will give them confidence that absolutely all information about the child’s health is in one place, ”he said.
Doctors will create and store all documents immediately in electronic form. But at the request of the patient or his legal representative, the medical record will also be kept on paper.
For a patient, an electronic medical record is a quick, convenient and safe access to medical information. It provides examination protocols, results of laboratory and instrumental studies (CT, MRI, ultrasound, fluorography), hospital discharge and vaccination card data. In addition, the card stores information on prescriptions, sick leaves and ambulance calls. Users have the ability to upload documents for printing, send them via email or messengers.
Access to the electronic medical record can be obtained on mos.ru portal… To do this, the user must have a compulsory medical insurance policy and be over 15 years old. Parents can apply for access to the child’s medical record.
In April, a unified digital healthcare platform was integrated with “Moscow electronic school”… Now there is no need to bring a paper certificate to school or kindergarten after an illness. It is issued electronically and is available online for both doctors and educational institutions.
