What exactly will change and where can I get fresh and up-to-date information?
First of all, we are talking about new clinical protocols. The Ministry of Health of Ukraine by decree No. 1422 allowed doctors to work according to international protocols for treatment and diagnosis.
In addition, primary care physicians – internists, pediatricians and family doctors – will now use the ICPC-2 (International Primary Care Classification) system in their work. It involves an integrated approach, in which the doctor encodes not only the diagnosis, but also the symptoms with which the patient applied. ICPC-2 contains about 1300 codes that describe the most common problems for patients.
Where can you find them? Medical application for doctors
Doctor Booster contains the ICPC-2 medical classifier, in which the doctor can easily find the necessary code by selecting the type of search – by group or by code. This will help doctors pay more attention to patients, and not waste time searching.
Also in the medical application for Android Doctor Booster, doctors will find reference books of medicines and the ICD-10 classifier, which is currently in force in Ukraine. Classifiers in the application work even without the Internet.
Another innovation is the reduction of paper medical reporting. All the time that was previously spent by the doctor filling out documents can now be used more efficiently. The main change is medical records. If earlier they took up several notebooks and were constantly lost, today you can find all medical records in your smartphone.
The Doctor Booster mobile application for doctors has everything you need to work – electronic patient records with medical histories, the ability to remotely send for tests, automatic download of test results and instrumental studies, referrals to specialized specialists, electronic prescriptions and treatment regimens. Now the medical record is always at hand – just select a patient from the list in the application and the doctor has access to all information at any time.
Order No. 504 “On approval of the procedure for providing primary medical care” regulates the work of primary care physicians and reserves the right for the doctor to provide certain types of services remotely. The doctor, using the Doctor Booster application, can quickly resolve patient issues, increasing the efficiency of his practice. The patient can ask the doctor a question by phone or in a messenger, and the doctor, accordingly, remotely sends for tests and studies, the results of which he can see online – everything is stored in the electronic patient record. And it is the doctor who decides whether the patient needs to come to the appointment – the application has an appointment calendar in which the doctor schedules patient visits in the most convenient way for him.
Thus, the Doctor Booster medical application is a convenient assistant to the doctor, with the help of which the transition to new standards of patient care becomes simpler and more understandable.
