The Graph - The number of transmitted messages

MEDICAL NET system from CompuGroup Medical (CGM) is used for the purpose of effective communication in health care by nearly 1,000 users. Over the past year (from April 2015 to March 2016) the system has already transferred 282,275 messages, which is twice more than in the previous period.

MEDICAL NET from CGM is the only system used by the practicing physicians for mutual communication on the Czech market. General practitioners, pediatricians and specialists exchange patient-related information via MEDICAL NET, such as for example medical findings or reports. "The advantage of MEDICAL NET system is the automatic assignment of the results into the patient’s documentation administered by the ambulatory program PC DOKTOR. This eliminates possible non-delivery of the reports by patients. In my opinion, the added value of this communication is that physicians are faster in analyzing reports from their colleagues and defining diagnosis," says the representative of the SPEA Olomouc health center and member of the board of the Czech Medical Chamber, MUDr. Petr Němeček.

Since the launch of the service, practicing physicians have already exchanged more than 643,688 messages. The system is also used outside the outpatients' department, by hospitals, laboratories and radiology departments. "Globally, eHealth will play a key role in the development of health care by sharing data among the whole range of medical equipment. In practice, it means that in case of sudden accident the doctors will have faster access to patients’ records," says Vladimír Přikryl, CEO of CompuGroup Medical.

As of March 2016, CGM has recorded 968 users of MEDICAL NET system, which is by 80 % more than two years ago (March 2014). In total, from April 2015 to March 2016 the users has exchanged 282,275 messages. This represents more than double compared to the previous year (132,760 as of March 2015).

To MEDICAL NET users in the Czech Republic belong laboratory diagnostic center PREVEDIG, SPEA Olomouc or University Hospital Ostrava. Electronical communication is also spread among general practitioners in Pardubice, Chomutov, Kuřim, Hlinsko, Plzeň, České Budějovice and others.
