Emmaüs vzw - Information flow towards general practitioners

The non-profit organisation Emmaüs was founded after merger discussions in 1997 between AZ Sint-Jozef in Mechelen and AZ Sint-Norbertus in Duffel. The merger of the two hospitals into ‘AZ Sint-Maarten’ and the fusion of the three non-profit organisations into ‘vzw Emmaüs’ were announced the 12th of January 1998. Since the 18th of June 2001 vzw Emmaüs and the three non-profit organisations Ivo Cornelis, Huize Bethanië and De Grote Robijn constitute together the group Emmaüs.

Description | business case

The group Emmaüs asked hict to make a vision document on how to extend and improve the digitised information provision of the general hospitals to the referring practitioners. Since referring practitioners constitute a very important target group for hospitals, a good and quick exchange of medical patient data and other information with them is highly important.

Approach

In a preliminary phase the Flemisch initiatives on provision of information, relevant for the group Emmaüs, were mapped. During a second phase the MONA application (Medical ONLine Access - Cegeka) was more deeply evaluated as a possible solution. 

This happened in consultation with Mr Everaert for the following reasons :

  • MONA can be easily implemented by hospitals using Cegeka’s Electronic Patient Record (C2M). 
  • MONA supports Kmehr/Sumehr which has to allow communication with general practitioners but also, ultimately, the exchange of information between the hospitals themselves. 

Result

Based on interviews and research two reports were produced with:

  • the result of the preliminary phase; 
  • a global enumeration of the Flemish initiatives for the advancement of information flows towards the general practitioners; 
  • an in-depth analysis of the MONA application as a possible solution.
