From CHIS to iCare - Bringing Operational Efficiency to the Next Level

October 07, 2019

The newest Cardinal Santos Medical Center Hospital Information System portal named Project iCare – a digital initiative spearheaded by the CSMC Information Technology Division, was officially launched on October 7,2019 at the PCAS Events Center.

 

The Project iCare is a substantial upgrade ffrom the existing platform called the Cardinal Hospital Information System (CHIS). It is also now compliant to the regulatory requirements of the Department of Health.

 

According to a 2018 report, more than 33% of the incidents reported will be addressed by integrating patients’ electronic medical records into a centralized HIS as it aims to increase efficiency, improve patient safety & compliance by recording and producing accurate data from the patient’s entry up to his exit. This also creates a more seamless experience in the data management of various administrative departments.

 

As the hospital prepares to go live on the 2nd Quarter of 2020, your proactive participation and cooperation in learning the usage is crucial for the success of the implementation of this new system.
