Sistema de Informação na Urgência
Other (as stated in the work)
This document aims to recognize the existence of some national health information systems, particularly in the emergency department. Also aims to understand all the functions as well all their interactions with other systems. We enumerate some of these information systems at national level, based our information in instruction manuals, scientific articles and websites of the respective entities. Analysing the whole national reality, we conclude that there are several information systems in the emergency department having as objetive the provision and improvement of health of the patient. This diversity of systems reflects in several problems, like the interoperability, that influences the delivery of care.
