    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Costa Rica Hospitals are preparing for electronic medical records (emr), but implementation is still away. The Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) pledges to work hard in accomplishing the execution of a Unique Electronic Medical Record (Expediente digital único en salud, EDUS), which should be ready in the next 5 years, at the latest.

    “1,100 employees have attended workshops, and in a medium term, they expect to reach 6,000 workers that will put in operation this program in the already existing health centers (Ebais),” states Manuel Rodríguez, Director of the EDUS program.

    The EDUS has been one of the most ambitious projects of the Caja, although it has taken more than a decade to achieve it. Lack of resources and many trials and errors of the software represent some of the obstacles that the Caja has had to approach, a clear cause of the delay in attempting this initiative.

    Last Wednesday, July 31st 2013, the Comisión Plena Segunda de la Asamblea Legislativa approved in the second debate the Electronic Medical Record Law Plan.

    Lawmakers and members of the Caja estimate to make great savings of financial resources, in terms of medical appointments, prescriptions, and to improve the electronically surveillance of the service that health centers provide, as well.

    The director of the EDUS program adds that the personnel trainings focus on getting to know the software that will be used to incorporate the electronic medical record. The software includes the Identification System, the Agendas y the Appointments (SIAC), addressed to the members of the Medical Registration Office. LN
