Hospital and Surgical Systems for Mobile Units to Care for Disadvantaged Populations Cinterandes Foundation Pilot Plan

Project Details


General objective Design, develop and implement a computer system for the handling and management of medical records and pre- and post-operative records. Justification Major Ambulatory Surgery (MAS) is a health care model, specifically for surgical patients, which has achieved significant development in recent years in much of the world. In general terms, certain patients are discharged the same day of surgery and do not need a hospital bed to complete their recovery process. Advances in minimally invasive surgery and anesthetic techniques that allow rapid recovery have allowed outpatient surgery or day surgery to be considered the alternative of choice for many types of procedures. To successfully develop this type of initiative, it is necessary to have a specific Care Program, which includes rules for selecting patients and procedures, as well as indications for discharge and home monitoring, in order to maintain the same standard of care as hospitalized surgery. . Its definitive implementation requires generating changes in the current organizational models and, above all, generating incentives for all those involved in this clinical care process. Based on the aforementioned background, the need has been seen to implement a computerized system for the registration of clinical and surgical histories for the Cinterandes Foundation, who maintain a health program for the benefit of the Ecuadorian non-profit society and serve low-income people who live in remote areas of the country and cannot easily access the government or private health system. What is intended is to develop a system that allows obtaining patient data, registering their pre and postoperative condition, and generating statistics that corroborate improving or maintaining the health program implemented in the foundation.
