Electronic Patient Records

​​CONvErGE and EU Funds Project.pngPrimary HealthCare Logo

Primary HealthCare have embarked on a project to replace the existing paper-based system in Health Centres and provide a robust basis for patient-record keeping by family doctors and other health professionals in Primary HealthCare for improved continuity of care. All professionals including receptionists, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and administrative staff received adequate training on this system prior to the roll out.

We have started the project in November 2019, and we have rolled out the Electronic Patient Records in all the Health Centres by May 2020 in this order:

  • Kirkop Health Centre
  • Cospicua Health Centre
  • Paola Health Centre
  • Rabat Health Centre
  • B’Kara Health Centre
  • Mosta Health Centre
  • Victoria Health Centre – Gozo
  • Qormi Health Centre
  • Gzira Health Centre
  • Floriana Health Centre 

​In parallel to this we have provided onsite support for at least a week and more for the larger centres to ensure that any issues that may crop up are solved immediately there and then. This has resulted in a very successful implementation and a quantum leap that has transformed Primary HealthCare to a totally paperless entity with universal access of patient’s medical records on a 24/7 basis to all those that are authorised to do so for patient care and follow up. This will bring out a number of infrastructural improvements from a technology point of view, including the introduction of new devices and other supporting tools such as a real time dashboard and a holistic care plan for patients with Diabetes Mellitus.​​​ From the patient perspective, this system has enhanced patient safety, effective and efficient care and keeps a trace of all that is happening to our clients.

This project is one of the seven components of the CONvErGE Project and it’s part financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The system is interfaced with other relevant Health IT Systems in the Maltese Healthcare System.
