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.

Factors affecting the cost of the EMR
Factors based on number of users, data volume, implemented features
There are many variables to consider to estimate the installation cost of an EMR system.
These are the standard questions about the final users, which we usually ask in order to quote an installation and a maintenance service. The answer will give us an idea of the intensity of use, of user diversity, of the amount of data to be managed and of the complexity of the initial installation and subsequent adaptations and configurations.
Questions for the health administrators

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.

In order to record X rays a Pacs – Dicom server is usually needed. A demo for a DICOM reader is located at: http://medical-records.net/dicom3/
This is a tomography (X Ray in multiple layers), and can be enlarged, reduced, brightened, darkened, and moved around.
This is quite a complex issue, the readers usually work together with PACS servers. PACS mean: picture archiving and communication system. They provide security, compression, backup, instant communication (the radiologist notifies the clinician about the imagen availability), etc. There is also a wide price margin, from free to multimillion dollar figures.
There are many options for advanced users, and they can be installed gradually by end user request. We always suggest separate servers for systems and data, because images are very demanding in terms of gigabytes.
Ask us about PACS server installation in your site or ours.
