Proposed Information System towards Computerized Technological Application – Recommendation for the Acquisition, Implementation, and Support of a Health Information System

PAPALOU A..

Abstract
The aim of this study is to propose a health information system for addressing the continuum of care. The selected setting or scenario is Bethany Place, with the facility’s specialty being long-term care. At the institution, the current aim lies in expanding to achieve rehabilitative care, yet electronic health record systems are yet to be adopted. Instead, the institution’s scanned and automated claims are sent to private partners and Medicare by using third-party services. Due to the lack of electronic health records, some of the current problems include delayed record accessibility and poor communication and engagement between physicians and patients. Also, there are risk management and quality issues about medication reconciliation, especially in situations involving patient transfers. The affected areas include the rehabilitation extension facility and Bethany Place’s current facility. To address these issues, it is proposed that an electronic medical record (EMR) system is acquired and implemented. In this study, the feasibility of EMR usage is evaluated. Specific areas of focus include EMR acquisition, planning, implementation, and support for future sustainability.

Key words: Rehabilitative care, electronic medical record (EMR), feasibility of EMR.
