Published on

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.

  4. 4. Electronic Health RecordsIntroductionHealth records are generally defined as the collection of documents that containdata, assessment and information of any nature relating to a patient’s situationand progress during their health care process. Health records are made up ofboth written and graphic data, which refer to an individual’s personal health andillnesses and the medical care that he/she has been provided.Traditional health records have developed technologically and become availablein digital and electronic formats.Paper records caused archiving errors and questionable guarantee ofconfidentiality, indirectly causing tests and treatments to be repeated, and evensometimes attendance errors. It was very difficult to continually monitor anindividual’s health throughout their life using the paper format. White paper on Electronic Health Records | 02

  6. 6. Electronic Health RecordsElectronic Health RecordsWhat is the Electronic Health Record?The Electronic Health Record is a new modelwhich champions an organizational andtechnological system, tackling these difficulties.It essentially focuses on global, integral accessand record of health information throughout anindividual’s lifetime.Information and Communication Technologies(ICTs) are therefore incorporated at the core ofhealth care services. As a consequence, healthrecords will no longer merely consist of datagenerated from an encounter between a patientand a professional or a health centre, but will formpart of an integrated health information system.The ability to locally distribute a patient’s healthrecord, not only in one country but in several, isbecoming more and more probable. It is thereforevery important that the health information canbe available anywhere and that structures suchas XML, Web services, open source systems orsimilar are the foundations of this records model,which is accessible any time and anywhere.
