On 18th and 19th of June, the Galician Health Service and ACIS welcomed a delegation from the Digital Health & Care Institute (DHI) - Scotland, from the regional government of Lower Silesia - Poland, from Healthy Saxony (HS) in Saxony - Germany, and from the Basque Country Health Service and the Foundation of Innovation and Health Research (BIOEF) - Basque Country. This delegation visit is within the TITTAN project framework activities, in which ACIS is the coordinator.
On the first day of the visit, as a starting point, our colleagues Javier Quiles del Río - Head of the General Subdirectorate Service of Information Systems and Technologies of Galician Health Service - and Marta Sande - IANUS Project Office - showed and explained to the TITTAN project partners the IANUS and Telea platforms. Independently of the hospital, clinic or public health center, IANUS offers to health professionals total access to the patient's electronic health record; meanwhile, Telea is a home telecare platform for chronic patients.
In the afternoon, the E-Saúde platform was presented after an institutional meal presided by - the Secretary-General of Consellería de Saúde - Alberto Fuentes Losada and - the Managing Director of the Health Knowledge Agency (ACIS) - Beatriz Allegue Requeijo. E-Saúde is a tool that allows the citizens/users of the Galician Health System to consult personal data of their health record and information about their medication, in any fixed or mobile device.
During the second day of the visit, the partners from Scotland and Lower Silesia visited in situ the Galeras Health Center in Santiago de Compostela accompanied by Jorge Prado - Head of the Support and Implementation Service - to learn about the management of IANUS by health professionals.
The day ended with the visit of the whole delegation to the University Hospital Complex in Santiago de Compostela (CHUS), where Carlos Peña Gil - cardiology specialist - presented the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. A program that began in September 2015, supervised by professionals for helping patients recover from heart attacks, cardiac surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention procedures. CHUS also has a gym where training and specific exercises are offered for patients with heart problems. Rehabilitation is complemented by one-hour meetings in which participate patients and their families with a multidisciplinary team of experts.
