QUERETARO, Mexico (PRWEB) May 25, 2020
In order to improve protocols that identify patients with suspected Covid-19 infections, Compañia Mexicana de Radiologia (CMR) incorporated the Respiratory Triage tool for selection and classification of patients in its INFOSALUD automated information modules installed in hospitals and clinics throughout the Republic of Mexico.
Respiratory Triage is a questionnaire created by the Mexico Ministry of Health and launched on April 2nd with the objective of promptly identifying patients with suspected Covid-19 respiratory illness. It is used at the patient's first point of contact with the goal of reducing the risk of virus spread and minimizing the wait time for the patient to receive medical attention.
Felipe Cuaranta Monroy, CMR IT Systems Development Manager, informs that Respiratory Triage is uploaded to the INFOSALUD patient registration console, and functions with an algorithm that evaluates the symptoms presented by the patients to allow for the identification of likely Covid-19 cases upon registration in the healthcare facility information system.
