Theoretical and practical model of a gastroenterological information system in a county area
In a medium size county of Hungary (Tolna county, 267.000 inhabitants), the introduction and development of complex computer-processed health care information system is in progress since 1975 (Jávor, 5). Related to this, the theoretical model of a gastroenterological information system for optimal conditions was elaborated by us. Several subsystems of the model are already in routine work. The model - starting from the level of primary health care (panel of general practitioners) to the highest level of hospital specialization - includes the administration of mass screening (Hemoccult-test, etc.): the different stages of computer-aided diagnosis preparing: the patients’ scheduling: the monitoring and administration of different diagnostic and therapeutic procedures the risk-specific systematic follow-up of “high risk” cases and some special supplies, as gastroenterology-related library service.
