9 9 Jan-07 Healthcare Challenges in Brazil Increasing demand for health care (aging, emerging of new diseases, re-emerging of considered overcome diseases) Skyrocketing healthcare costs (Health Technology) Inefficiency Paper base uncoordinated system, multiple formularies Lack of adequate information to support decision making, quality of care evaluation and to monitor disease management programs; Lack of common health and healthcare information standards within the sector Failed attempts of bottom-up standardization

10 10 Jan-07 SUS – The Brazilian Health System Universal Access Health is a Right of All (~ 145M individuals) Full Coverage, Free of Charge All Services and Procedures SUS principles: Equity Universality Integrality Funding and Management are Shared Federal, State and Municipal Levels Suplementary Health for Those Wiling to Pay ~ 2,000 HMOs (~ 45M individuals) ANS (Agência Nacional de Saúde Suplementar) Regulates the Sector

11 11 Jan-07 The Brazilian Healthcare Market Extremely Fragmented Market: ~ U$ 90B/year SUS is the major Payer: ~ 66% in volume and some 50% in $ 190M inhabitants, spread over 5.500 cities Around 7,500 Hospitals and 2,000 Health Plan Operators (HMOs) 70% of Hospitals have less than 80 beds Estimate that only 10% of Hospitals have Information Systems 90% HMOs cover less than 50,000 lives each Only 3% of HMOs cover more than 200,000 each The largest HMO covers less that 4M lives There is no important network of Health Organizations Lack of notion of production chain, added value and best practices National Standards on their way Its a Market of Discontent Fragmented and Uncoordinated Market Small and Badly Connected Players! Little Investiment in Management and IT

12 12 Jan-07 SUS Organization & Financing State Dept of Health City Local Management National Health Council State Health Council Municipal Health Council Municipal Health Fund Tri-party & Bi-party Committees Tri-party & Bi-party Committees National Health Fund $$$$ Information State Dept of Health $$ Dept o Health (Federal Govrnt)

44 44 Jan-07 Advantages of the Architecture Several Cities can share servers and services; Simple machines at the point of care; No need for computer personnel at healthcare units; Complexity stays away from the user, under central control; Model can be rolled out to other places; New functionalities can be added easily; SIGA Saúde: Periodic Updates

45 45 Jan-07 SIGA Saúde now 372 using the system via Internet (85% of all Primary Care units) 11,878,294 individuals are registered (uniquely identified) 12,000+ medical appointments daily 20,000 on-line authorizations for high cost procedures per month Two Units Using the Electronic Health Record module (pilot project)

46 46 Jan-07 Manual vs Electronic High-Cost Procedure Orders Electronic Manual / Paper-based

47 47 Jan-07 Our current challenges Improve internet connectivity of health basic units More investment in development and infrastructure Integration with the National Health Information system Partnership with other cities and, perhaps, countries Wish List: Hospital Information System Orders/Observations Lab (using HL7!!!)

48 48 Jan-07 Integration Model of System Electronic Health Record (SIGA System) Hospital Information System WebservicesWebservices Lab Systems* PACS (Medical Images) National Information Systems HL7 * Only six months to implement What do we need ? Education in HL7 (orders/obs) Translation LOINC HL7
