DOHA: The Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) is implementing the Clinical Information System (CIS) in Al Gharafa Health Center after completing the first level in Al Daayen HC and Al Khor hospital, which included a new electronic system for patients’ medical records to be viewed by physicians across every healthcare facility.
Due to the fact that CIS is an enabling tool to provide the best healthcare to patients in Qatar, PHCC will implement the second level of the project in Al Gharrafa Health Center to improve the quality of care provided there, the Corporation said in a statement.
The CIS is meant to improve the quality of healthcare, improve registration and appointments procedures, ensure recording of the patients’ medication details, provide patients medical information in all PHCC and Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) facilities, and prevent loss of any medical record.
During the implementation, staff at primary health care centres may need to collect more information from patients for recording in the new system, PHCC said.
In the initial stage, the new process may cause some delays, for which PHCC requested patients and visitors to be patient with the staff at Al Gharafa Health Center.
