Paper records of a person’s health and medical care history, including both written reports and graphic information, can pose not only confidentiality concerns but also accessibility and accuracy problems that can interfere with timely and effective treatment.
Electronic health records, as part of an integrated health information system, address these problems by making a patient’s health information available anytime, anywhere. EHRs also support patient self-monitoring systems, home care, remote monitoring and other increasingly prevalent practices. Further, EHRs help save energy and paper and support more sustainable processes.
Schneider Electric has been involved in integral electronic health care information and management systems since 1996, refining the technology to achieve optimum support to health professionals. As a result, it offers the TiCares solution, which has been implemented in several hospitals in Spain and Latin America; references are available. This solution is helping health professionals diagnose and prescribe treatment and preventative actions more efficiently — and benefitting all stakeholders.
