|National Cardiovascular Health Policy 2010-2019|
Cardiovascular disease remains the most common cause of death in Ireland, currently accounting for one third of all deaths and one in five premature deaths. On Thursday 10th June 2010, the Department of Health and Children launched the National Cardiovascular Health Policy 2010-2019, entitled 'Changing Cardiovascular Health'.
As part of the HSE’s Quality and Clinical Care Directorate, National Clinical Programmes have been established, and clinicians with expertise in the area, have been appointed to ensure implementation of the policy. These National Clinical Programmes will seek to standardize care for all patients across the country so that everyone can access to the same standard of care for stroke, acute coronary syndrome and heart failure, across both hospital and community healthcare settings.Ensuring optimal healthcare is RioMed’s priority. Cellma can facilitate the implementation of such policies with its full EPR function, making it possible for doctors to share up-to-date patient records across the country or in a specific hospital or community healthcare setting. In doing so, time is saved and effort is minimized in searching for and recording patient data, alleviating the administrative burden. Customizable assessments make examining and diagnosing patients easy and efficient. Additionally, a holistic view of the healthcare system can be generated by means of dashboards, allowing for evaluation of the level of service being provided.
