File new digital tools based on mobile programs and applications occupy a considerable space in the world of medicine. The record of thousands of folio patients that ended up in the trash is gone. However, developing these programs, while improving patient care and satisfaction, accelerating processes and eliminating health bureaucracy, is a challenge for patients and senior physicians who are not “Difital tubives” and still base the query as “old school”.
Faced with this challenge and the commitment to develop new technology tools for the health sector, José Antonio Rueda from the Internal Medicine Unit of Fuenlabrada Hospital in Madrid spoke with Medical writing under the table ‘Clinical management and new technologies ” 41st Congress of the Spanish National Society of Internal Medicine (SEMI).
“The electronic medical documentation applications and software they are agile support for the patient and the doctor. These Technological tools come to improve medical care and come remove the processes of health bureaucracy we have been dealing with for many years. The challenge is that we see it and understand it as a support for our work. It does not replace traditional consultationsRueda said.
File the most significant obstacles associated with these technologieshave it old people. “We must be aware that absolutely all patients are not candidates for these digital portals. There will be older adults who will still need to have everything on paper as they are not mobile users or new technologies. In the case of a human trafficker, there are doctors who are not digital nativeswho started working on paper for which we should train them to relate to this progress – emphasized the internist.
Three digital medical support tools
““Patient Portal” is an application in which the patient has at his disposal all his visits, his tests, all consultation protocols. You can talk to your doctor via chat, as long as your doctor has previously activated it. Notifications can be sent to the trafficker via the service mailbox. A patient with this application goes all the way through the consultation, ”Rueda introduced.
““Casiope’s Mobility” is a mobile application where you admit your patients to the operating room and emergency room. You can walk through the plants and you can see patient tests along the way. You can automatically change your treatment, comment on the nurse, ask for tests, even if you are in a hurry, the section opens to dictate a note for that day. It has many functions, including requesting analytics, prescribing treatment, reviewing imaging tests, ”commented the internist.
““Services absent”, is a software made available to the patient by Casiopea. It is made in such a way that the patient does not have to come to the hospital. There are patients who can benefit from a physical absence from a medical institution. In the program you can perform an analysis, the doctor is notified of the results, sees them and can talk to the patient through the online dialogue, i.e. the application chat. You can call the phone, you can write a report that will later be read on your patient portal, ”Rueda said.
