Dear @akanter and @mksd
Thanks for your attention.
The first configuration is the simulation of Integrated Health Care model for elderly in developing countries. Studies have shown that lack of access to real and timely data at time of decision making by managers is one of challenges of healthcare centers. Even, sometimes this issue has affected future planning and national policies of countries. Also, some studies mention diversity of services and complexity of environment as other important challenges of healthcare centers; so in such a complex environment, the existence of a system to control environment and increase efficiency and effectiveness is considered as an inevitable necessity. So, we decided to categorize the diseases and work on two valuable topics considering mentioned aims. As you know, ongoing increase in the elderly population in many developed countries has drawn attention to health of this age group. Recording adequate and relevant data for the elderly is considered as the basis for future planning for this segment of society. So, collecting demographic data, medical histories, care plans, health assessment and financial data of elderly health are very important for Increasing the elderly’s quality of life and future planning for this group. We want to model Integrated Health Care for elderly via this software and controlling patients’ quality of life using two devices (point of care testing) based on care plans by a new module in patient dashboard to check them. This relationship can be very helpful and we can prove its advantages.
Also, in developing countries patients are more than the patients in developed countries and you know most of people use public hospitals. A public hospital or government hospital is a hospital which is owned by a government and receives government funding. In some countries, this type of hospital provides medical care free of charge, the cost of which is covered by government reimbursement and unfortunately, because of high density of patients in hospitals, they cannot present good care programs . 5 common problems: Too many avoidable patient days, Desire for physician integration but very few employed physicians, Unhealthy community, Poor communication between providers, and Physician and nurse shortages. And the most important issue is medication error by residents’ orders. We decided to design a configuration to check the residents’ medication orders by their professors. Because patients and their families face some irrecoverable problems. We have been designing a novel configuration based on needs of patients and physicians to control and help both groups.
In this step we need OpenMRS community to support us. We have been studying all the aspects, we can present our projects, and prove the necessity of them especially in developing countries.
