The keys to helping patients, on the GP's computer
Date:1/11/2012

This release is available in Spanish.

Let us assume that a patient goes to see his or her GP. The GP is not sure what is wrong, and notes down on the computer the patient's details, medical history and symptoms.

"But the problem is that this knowledge tends to be transmitted on paper. So, how are all those professionals who are at the end of the chain and who are not specialists (i.e. GPs) going to read all those guidelines? They have neither the time nor the capacity to assimilate all the contents." So at Erabaki they have set up a technological platform to simplify the knowledge and not lose it. "We have to get the best practices in the clinical guidelines executed on computer, and turn the process unto a rapid one."

An editor designed to facilitate comprehension

First of all, the computer programmers and the specialist doctors who participate as suppliers of the content of the platform need to understand each other. In other words, when it comes to inputting the clinical guidelines into the programme, the computer prog
