, Giovanni Delgrossi
, Information Systems Director of the Vimercate Hospital Trust, will give a seminar titled: "Information and Communication Technologies applied to complex hospital systems - The Vimercate Hospital Trust experience
", whose summary follows here below.
The Vimercate Hospital Trust is composed of five different Hospital Structures located in the Lombardy Region, near Milan. The trust is one of the most digitalized realities in Northern Italy.
The idea of setting up a fully "Digital Hospital", which was born some years ago, has been realized through the progressive implementation of some major digitization projects, together with the continuous adoption of the most innovative information technologies. The main goal among the ones accomplished so far is the complete adoption of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR). Today, the fully digital EMR allows medical staff at Vimercate, Desio and Seregno Hospitals to manage and share in real time more than 50,000 medical practices per year.
This seminar will give an overview of the main steps of the whole Hospital digitization project. It will also cover the Information and Communication Technologies adopted, the Information System Architecture implemented and the results achieved, in terms of software deployment and hospital change management. Business and Service Continuity issues and their adopted solutions will also be presented, together with data security aspects and an outline of the technologies and architectures used to guarantee the full legal validity of the electronically managed clinical data.
