The director of the Institute of Health Services of the State of Aguascalientes (ISSEA), Rubén Galaviz Tristán, announced that the sector will bet on the telemedicine scheme with the implementation of the Electronic Medical File, as well as robotic cabins and call centers in the Houses of Health that will be located in the municipalities, which will allow remote care 24 hours a day.

At a press conference, the doctor announced that the ISSEA is working on the design of a new health platform, which will have telemedicine and telehealth schemes, which will work thanks to the implementation of technologies that allow the medical care of more Aguascalientes .

“Very important platforms are being designed because the final step or what we want to achieve is to have the systematization of all the processes, but the most important thing is called telemedicine and telehealth, these two concepts have to be weaved slowly, finely. . The final point is going to be that we can have a robotic cabin where the patient can be treated at strategic points and that it has a call center where a doctor is present 24 hours a day and can provide care remotely, with very fine details. ”

He commented that these robotic cabinets are already being implemented in many parts of the world, so this example will be taken and the best model for Aguascalientes will be chosen. He mentioned that the authorities already have displayed several units capable of capturing various data, such as the patient’s biometric data or her heart rate, for example. These teams will have the face-to-face assistance of Nursing personnel, who will assist the doctors who are treating patients remotely.

Prior to the arrival of these robotic booths at the Health Houses, Galaviz Tristán explained that Aguascalientes will be working to increase the quality of service through the creation of Electronic Medical Records, which will be on a general platform that can be consulted online. distance by the corresponding doctor, and, in addition, will help in the granting and control of medications.

“This is going to totally transform care and the quality of care. What happens when the doctor finishes the review and requires treatment? A prescription will be issued with a QR code and on the other side there is a medicine dispenser where the patient passes the reader and the little machine delivers their doses. This machine also has control in a system that will allow knowing which doctor gave it to him, what illness, at what time, what quantities, all the patient’s statistics will be integrated into a network”.

Galaviz Tristán mentioned that, to implement this new care scheme, the only thing missing is the lease or purchase of the necessary technology, as well as the installation of fiber optics in the communities to achieve the transmission of doctor-patient information.

For the moment, he pointed out that it is already possible to use the Electronic Medical Record and the “big data” of the health sector.
