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.

Installation of OpenEMR in a medium size clinic in Southern Argentina.

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.

Guía del Usuario OpenEMR 4.1- Manual práctico

Hemos publicado la versión libre y gratuita de la Guía del Usuario para OpenEMR. Corresponde a una traducción de la versión 4.1, que no difiere mucho de la actual. Está anunciada en el Wiki de OpenEMR, http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/index.php/Spanish_Guide , para que todos los usuarios hispanos puedan aprovecharla y eventualmente ayudar a mejorarla.

Además, disponemos de una versión ampliada, con muchos temas que no están en la fuente inglesa mencionada, pero que son necesarios para el buen aprovechamiento del software. Esta versión es ofrecida a nuestros clientes, en particular al Instituto Inec en Colombia, que dicta cursos al respecto. Solicite esta versión de nuestro Manual de OpenEMR en español si Ud. tiene intención de instalar OpenEMR en su institución.

Como parte del paquete de ayuda para los alumnos, hemos puesto en marcha un sistema de tickets, en este sitio. El soporte por tickets es mucho más ordenado que los emails sueltos. En primer lugar, el usuario puede llenar casillas en lugar de escribir creativamente. Y eso representa ahorro de tiempo para el que escribe y también para el que lee. En segundo lugar, los distintos temas pueden rutearse automáticamente a distintos técnicos. En tercer lugar, queda un registro de cuando y cómo fueron respondidos los mensajes.

El otro aporte para educación de usuarios son las presentaciones PowerPoint sobre OpenEMR, (ir a la publicación descriptiva).
