Knowledge and software can improve healthcare
The ifa team presented the latest development for clinical decision support (CDS) at the ASCRS (American Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery) meeting in Boston. The “Clinical Coding Management Module” (CCMM) allows the mapping between different terminology systems and the local clinical language. With standard terminologies such as SNOMED (Systemized Nomenclature in Medicine) and ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases) physicians can exchange information and use second opinions and improve the communication in co-management networks.
Robert Habel, Director international Key Accounts: “ The CCMM is ideal to implement international bilingual EMR projects. For our new project in Mexico City we use the coding system to map all clinical terms in Spanish and English. That supports the communication of leading international eye institutes and the corresponding exchange of medical knowledge”
Digital information systems make clinical decisions safer (CDSS)
Can physicians really know everything there is to know in their specific field? The answer, even from physicians themselves, is a clear, resounding "no". Every year, there are over 500,000 scientific publications with important information regarding the “state of the art” treatment of patients. These medical advancements can be made available during the course of treatment using digital knowledge databases.
American physicians face their most difficult challenge over the last 50 years due to two important changes to the health care sector. ifa systems AG will profit from it in the long run, but for the time being, the workload of ifa's US Team will increase dramatically.
