english description openemr website

OpenEMR is a very complete system for Electronic Medical Records (EMR) or even Electronic Health Records (EHR). It is written in PHP code with Javascript and MySQL database. It is very complete open source code, free, that can be downloaded from the official Oemr site.

We developed a number of improvements, having to do with dowloadable forms with incorporated variables, with the Inpatient module and more.

Digital clinical data for Occupational Medicine companies

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.
