How a child's digital passport will facilitate the work of doctors in Moscow polyclinics

September 25

Doctors of Moscow children polyclinics, as well as medical staff in the capital's schools and kindergartens began to use a new service - a digital passport of a child. It allows doctors, including medical specialists, to quickly receive the summary of young patient health and develop the correct treatment tactics. Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Moscow Mayor for Social Development, spoke about this.

“A new service - child digital passport - was launched as part of Moscow healthcare unified digital platform and is now accessible to all Moscow children polyclinic doctors. It provides a useful summary of all child important data, both medical and non-medical ones. For example, a doctor can immediately see child’s health group, blood group, privileges (if available), chronic diseases and related observations of other specialists. At the same time, earlier all this information was stored separately, by paper form and in various sections of an electronic medical record, and doctors had to spend time to find it,” the vice-mayor noted.

According to Anastasia Rakova, the service contains the most relevant data, which allows the doctor to quickly decide on the further tactics of patient treatment. Information is automatically loaded from medical documents online. The digital passport displays the child's blood group, Rh factor, medical group for physical education, health group, social status, privileges (if available) and chronic diseases.

Thanks to the integration of the MES and UMIAS systems, polyclinics staff can get data on school or kindergarten attending, as well as contacts of child representatives for operational communication.

The new tool provides healthcare staff with quick and easy access to patient health information and improves the quality of care for children.

For example, up-to-date information on social status allows to determine additional social support measures, as well as to plan prophylactic medical examination of children in need.

Health group, physical culture group, information on observation by specialized specialists reduces the time for a doctor to issue various certificates. These data also help to determine whether it is worth prescribing additional examination and drug therapy, and, if necessary, in a timely manner to collect a medical commission to discuss the diagnosis and treatment. The blood group and Rh factor data are necessary for the operational use in emergency cases, for example, when calling an ambulance.

Digital Polyclinic: how high technologies help doctors and patients

In August, a digital passport of the polyclinic district became accessible to district doctors - another service that helps to more effectively monitor the health of citizens. It contains information on the structure of morbidity, data on patients eligible for social services, statistics on clinical examination and other important information. This dataset makes it possible to assess the overall picture of the district and monitor the health status of each patient individually. 

The unified digital healthcare platform was and is developed jointly by the Moscow social development complex and the Department of Information Technology.
