  • 2017 № 4 Compliance control of the hospital ad- verse events prevention protocols with the medical information system

    The paper presents the results of using the hospital’s information system (HIS) to analyze the compliance with the requirements of standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the hospital adverse events (HAE) prevention. Templates were embedded into medical record form to register the inpatient’s risk level for venous thromboembolism, falls and pressure ulcer, as well as to prescribe corresponding preventive measures. The data uploaded from the HIS were used to calculate the pro- cess and outcome indicators for HAE prevention, and to correlate them with the HAEs. This approach allows to establish the effective control of compliance with requirements of public oversight authorities for healthcare quality and safety assurance.

  • 2020 № 3 The role of health information technology in promoting patient safety

    The paper reviews current scientific evidence on the impact of different health information technologies (HIT) on patient
    safety, as well as the potential negative consequences of HIT introduction, including systems of computerized physician order entry(CPOE), clinical decision support (CDSS), medication administration technologies, telemedicine and telemonitioring, electronic incident reporting and electronic medical records (EMR). It was concluded that the most convincing evidence of effectiveness inimproving patient safety, reducing the risk of medical errors and healthcare-related adverse events, have CDSS and technologies that incorporate decision support elements: CPOE, EMR and telemonitoring.
