We would be very happy to share our UK experiences with the development and implementation of National electronic record systems if it can help your work in Nigeria. We still have a long way to go but all patients are registered on life long digital records.
We produced a report for our House of lords and have engaged with our medical regulators, Professional medical association, indemnity bodies and with our national health service administrators.
National electronic health record systems have basic standard and technical requirements in a number of areas that include:
Emerging Global Health care records standards
Ethics of professionals
Health and care outcomes
Law of country and international law
“The State” and the declaration of human rights
Culture and memes of People and the many publics
Consent, understanding and individual morals of citizens (data subjects under our European General Data Protection regulation)
These are all linking up globally, now, through technology, connectivity, the internet and radiotelephony.
West Pennine Local Medical Committee provided an information toolkit for their 60 family practices and over 200,000 patients which I have pasted.
Let us know if we can help further. [...]
