Description

HealthScore application has been implemented in a non-profit general hospital (AMGH). The original objective of the implementation was to move from paper based health records to electronic health records using SNOMED CT. However, the implementation has now transformed the hospital into moving towards becoming a paperless organization.

Location: Bangalore, Karnataka, India


Scope

The HealthScore application is being used by the Registration Desk, Billing Department, doctors across various departments - Plastic Surgery, Orthopedics, Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Psychiatry etc.

How SNOMED CT will be used

SNOMED CT is being used to capture all clinical notes including allergies, vitals, past history, family history, symptoms, clinical findings and diagnosis.

Why SNOMED CT was selected

The focus of our effort is electronic clinical notes and not billing. SNOMED CT was chosen for multiple reasons, primary being, the standard for a vast number of clinical terms, and providing an ontology that helps grouping by multiple hierarchies as applicable.
