OPC 5 Public Policy Evaluation 5 FISCAL IMPACT OF THE DRAFT OPINION ON THE ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORD BILL

FISCAL IMPACT OF THE DRAFT OPINION ON THE ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORD BILL

September 11, 2020

The national scope of the Bill being promoted to establish a Single Electronic Medical Record System (EMR) involves cultural, organizational, technical, and professional challenges to be overcome in the eHealth path in which our country, like most of the countries of the region and the world, finds itself.

The design, development and implementation strategy adopted to carry out this Single EMR System will determine the requirements in terms of human resources, infrastructure, and technological equipment, as well as those related to the management of any necessary
changes within the health institutions, and the population, in their capacity as holders of their Electronic Medical Record.

Once these aspects have been addressed, it will be possible to evaluate the fiscal impact of the Bill being promoted, considering that the experiences in other countries and in some institutions in our country show that guaranteeing sustainability and continuity of the initiative over time represents a great challenge.
