MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
All-Russian Center for Emergency and Radiation Medicine named after V.I. A.M. Nikiforov EMERCOM of Russia in St. Petersburg completed the certification procedure for compliance with the international standard of informatization of medical institutions. The international organization HIMSS has confirmed compliance with the requirements of the highest, 7th level.
Thus, VTsERM remains an innovator of medical informatization in Russia. Today, the center is the first and so far the only medical institution in the Russian Federation and Eastern Europe with a HIMSS EMRAM stage 7 certificate.
The HIMSS certificate is a guarantee of minimizing the human factor and complete patient safety at all stages of treatment. For example, the system excludes the transfusion of an incompatible blood group to a patient, the introduction of the wrong drugs or pills. Due to the fact that all materials about the patient’s condition are in one place, the doctor can decide on anesthesia for a patient who cannot tell about the existing contraindications, but who has previously been treated in the clinic. Also, information technology makes it possible to identify such serious diseases as sepsis in the early stages, which allows you to save a person’s life.
The medical information system used has several levels of protection, which ensures the safety of patients’ personal data and the preservation of medical secrets.
All-Russian Center for Emergency and Radiation Medicine named after V.I. A.M. Nikiforov EMERCOM of Russia is a multidisciplinary hospital network consisting of several clinics and providing specialized high-tech medical care, as well as a scientific and educational center. VCERM has been implementing medical information systems in everyday practice since 2001 by introducing MIS “MedTrack”; in 2010, the organization made the transition to the domestic MIS “qMS”.
