Thanks to the new digital equipment, doctors will reduce the time to decipher examinations, and patients will receive an ECG result faster.
Next year, Moscow city polyclinics will supply digital electrocardiographs with the ability to integrate with UMIAS. This will allow doctors to reduce the time for decoding examinations, and for patients to receive an ECG result faster, which will then be stored in an electronic medical record.
In addition, they plan to integrate 24-hour cardiac monitoring devices into a single digital platform. Told about it Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
“Next year we will try to switch to digital electrocardiographs in each polyclinic, which are immediately connected to the UMIAS system. The procedure itself takes about three to five minutes, and the decoding of these cardiograms will be carried out exclusively in electronic form using artificial intelligence and automatically recorded in the UMIAS – the doctor will not need to spend time on this. And the patient no longer needs to collect the tape and put it in his pocket. It will be automatically reflected in the electronic card along with the conclusion. And very quickly the patient will be able to get a second opinion, ”said Anastasia Rakova.
Digital electrocardiographs with connection to UMIAS have already been tested in the course of clinical examination of townspeople in the pavilions “Healthy Moscow”.
“Both doctors and patients liked the innovation very much. Therefore, this year we are purchasing cardiographs and massively re-equipping polyclinics. We will move in the same direction next year and will try to very clearly link wearable devices with UMIAS, such as daily monitoring of the heart and blood pressure, ”added Anastasia Rakova.
Information from these devices will automatically enter UMIAS and then processed using artificial intelligence – all this will significantly reduce the workload of doctors, ”
According to the deputy mayor, the innovations allow storing all information on the patient in one place for the convenience of the doctor. It also reduces the amount of documentation that needs to be maintained. The doctor devotes more time to communicating with the patient and is able to make the right decision based on the maximum amount of data.
Integration of electrocardiographs with the EMIAS system made it possible to obtain ECG results not on paper tape, but in digital form. The decoding of the study is carried out automatically using the artificial intelligence algorithms of the UMIAS, and the electronic conclusion, if necessary, can be corrected by the doctor of functional diagnostics. This increases the accuracy of the diagnosis and significantly reduces the time required for obtaining research results.
The protocol and electrocardiogram of the instrumental examination performed in the city polyclinic are saved in the patient’s electronic medical record and are available both to doctors at UMIAS and to the patients themselves in pdf-file format on the mos.ru portal and in the EMIAS.INFO mobile application.
