Creation of a script to whiten the hospitalization tables within the database.
Screens with individual patient data, sorted by Area / floor and by Surname.
Facility to view or print all the data of a single patient at once. More patient data can be added, upon request.
PowerPointPoint file, descriptive of the hospitalization procedure.
Granting of admin permissions for the hospitalizations and of doctor (medical user, medical supervisor) for the hospitalization reports. That way the the bosses can intern, register, change beds and create beds. Common doctors can see the listings, but not change them.

Most Occupational Medicine companies perform periodic examinations where doctors record the data in blank paper forms. This practice represents a waste of time, because the doctor must question each patient about old episodes of work accidents and diseases that the company already knows. Employees may also omit important records. And it is known that this type of control is done against the clock, because the labor doctors have little time to review all the employees of a company. The digital clinical history would solve this problem.
The ART in Argentina and other countries are providers of Labour Insurance, covering work accidents and occupational diseases. These ART run periodical checkups of every worker, looking for work-related health problems. These companies are starting to request that the occupational medicine companies inform them in real time about the work accidents and the results of the periodic exams. This also implies to record all the data in a fast way, that both companies agree on the format and on the interconnection norms of both servers. Usually the HL7 standard is used, but this is not implemented in all the digital systems used in our environment. OpenEMR is ideal for this purpose, because it can also be used in a tablet or even a cell phone, whether the system runs in the cloud or in a local server of the company. It is required to program some simple forms for the most common events in each company, and to make an appropriate interface for the connection of the servers.
The business can expand. The ART can propose the use of this system to other occupational medicine companies. Likewise, the adopting labor medicine company can offer the interconnection of servers to other ARTs with which it works.

The hospitalization system covers the main data registration needs in a hospital or clinic.
The first stage is to create the beds. A bed is always inside a room, in turn within a floor and within an area. The area can be General, Emergency, Surgery, Maternity, Intensive therapy, etc. The beds can be male/female, have TV or Oxygen. Other features can be added upon request.

The OpenEMR was originally for outpatients, but many claimed a new feature that allows the monitoring of hospitalizations. We are developing an Inpatient Module, including location, type of bed, floor, room, bed number, additional room , such as TV and oxygen, etc.
The reports include: Free beds – Inpatient days – Standard Inpatient Number – Released patients – Accumulated cost for bed use

We have installed OpenEMR in a medium size clinic, in the province of Chubut, Argentina, in September 2016. So far, 7 months later, there are 100 registered users and almost 10,000 patients. There were no problems so far.
The administration asked us for some reports, beyond those programmed in the OpenEMER system. For example, a list of patients without health insurance. We solved it with a customized MySQL query.
A Gynecology form was implemented with some standard questions.

How are the health insurance providers already admitted published?
First of all, each country has a different health system and denomination, but the most common is Health Insurance. In Argentina there are Obras Sociales (obligatory for all workers) or Prepaid Insurance o Prepagas (of voluntary affiliation). In Administration – Practice – Health insurance companies there is an editable list. Continue reading “Health Insurance FAQ”
This issue always arises in medical areas, especially hospitals. Sometimes, the possible unfavorable legal implications of computerization are an excuse for not computerizing, although increasingly weaker. Sometimes the subject highlights the inadequacy of the current legislation, still several decades behind reality.
For example, at a recent symposium in the Italian Hospital of Buenos Aires, a doctor from this advanced pioneer center in Medical Informatics, complained that as a result of a court case, a lawyer asked to seize the patient’s medical history, for which the judge wanted to take a complete server from the Data Center of the Hospital. This, regardless of the damage caused to the tens of thousands of patients whose stories resided on that same server.

UMLS – Quick start guide
What is the UMLS?
The UMLS, or Unified Medical Language System, is a collection of files and software that brings together many biomedical vocabularies and standards to enable interoperability between computer systems. It is developed by the National Library of Medicine of the USA.
You can use the UMLS to improve or develop applications, such as electronic medical records, classification tools, dictionaries and language translators.
The SNOMED dictionary in Spanish can be easily integrated into OPENEMR to standardize medical terminology in our language. Continue reading “UMLS, or Unified Medical Language System”
