The introduction of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system or QM (Quality Management) software in an eye clinic is a complex process. Therefore the key for success is a professional preparation. The compendium for introducing EMR software in an eye care environment was developed by the ifa team. For the decision process for the suitable IT solution, our experts (users, vendors and associations) developed a checklist for the selection of ophthalmic IT. Both documents are available in our Download Area.
The ifa software was designed for large networks in eye clinics and multi specialty hospitals. The existing projects worldwide vary from 20 to 120 workstations, also in multi location (remote) environments. HIS interfaces provide connectivity to existing administration and billing applications. These interfaces can be developed based on individual protocol specifications or following IT-standards (e.g. HL7, DICOM etc.).
You will find more information on the implementation of the ifa electronic medical record in eye clinics in the following brochures:
