Fujitsu (News - Alert), a well known information and communication technology company from Japan that provides a variety of technology products, solutions and services, has introduced a new feature within its electronic medical record system named HOPE/EGMAIN-RX. The new functionality will allow outpatient clinics to cross-reference medical data with other institutions through HumanBridge and other regional medical networks. The company has begun selling the enhanced version of its HOPE/EGMAIN-RX solution in Japan.
The new feature will enable clinics and other medical facilities to verify each other’s patient data using HumanBridge, Fujitsu’s regional medical network solution or other networks. It will be helpful in rapid confirmation of the medical records of patients by any medical institution within a region, so that the diagnostic tests or drug administration don’t need to be repeated anymore. Additionally, it will also help emergency outpatient procedures to receive rapid and accurate medical services.
It’s becoming more and more important for healthcare facilities to collaborate among themselves for offering better services to the patients. Especially, in the cases when patients are referred by the local clinics to central hospitals or specialized treatment facilities, usually the medical information about the patient is not properly communicated by telephone or email.
Enhanced version of HOPE/EGMAIN-RX, the EMR and medical administration system for outpatient clinics by Fujitsu, it is possible for clinics and medical institutions to conduct cross referencing through HumanBridge or other regional medical network and view the patient data that each separately maintains.
If the patient is ready to disclose his or her EMR data, vital information such as order forms, profiles, disease indications, laboratory results and medication histories can be offered to other medical institutions connected to the regional medical network through the new solution. This information also includes all previous medical examinations and treatments which help in preventing unnecessary duplication of diagnostic tests or drug administration. Apart from that, the seamless exchange of EMR data also ensures that medical facilities located in remote areas can collaborate with central hospitals in a better way to ensure that proper healthcare services are offered to the patients. The solution also supports the SS-MIX-compliant storage technology, which further enhances the quality of regional healthcare without imposing any system constraints.
