01 Oct INCMNSZ achieves greater agility in its business processes thanks to the flow of information in real time
In the wake of the health emergency, we have all had to adapt quickly and face an exceptional reality. In previous articles we discussed how AuraQuantic can facilitate the implementation of remote working. In this article we are going to talk about another specific case study, that of the Salvador Zubirán National Institute of Health Sciences and Nutrition (INCMNSZ) and what they have achieved using AuraQuantic.
The INCMNSZ is one of the 12 National Institutes of Health and High Specialty Hospitals dependent on the Mexican Ministry of Health. Among its main functions and services are clinical-epidemiological research, specialized medical care, and teaching future health professionals. The Institute’s priorities are high-quality clinical, basic, and epidemiological research, the creation of medical knowledge, and specialized medical care.
The INCMNSZ has been working with AuraQuantic since 2015, when AuraQuantic was used to implement a laboratory-confirmed epidemiological surveillance system, where the behavior patterns of the different known viruses (including coronaviruses) are recorded.
AuraQuantic has allowed them to share sociodemographic and clinical information in real time (without personal identifiers) of the patients who agree to participate in the different studies carried out by the Institute. Likewise, it has allowed the recording and monitoring of the results of the biological samples that are sent to the Institute for processing. Thanks to AuraQuantic, this information is shared by the different researchers of all participating centers, and is available to all those who have the appropriate permissions to be able to consult and review the patient information. “AuraQuantic has not only allowed us to share the results of the investigations, but has also allowed us to accelerate the report of laboratory results for their exclusive use in the patients’ clinical records, thanks to the possibility of automatically generating documents that comment on the Researchers responsible for the project in the Salvador Zubirán National Institute of Health Sciences and Nutrition.
In these times of pandemic and a pressing need for isolation and protection against the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, AuraQuantic has enabled the INCMNSZ to continue working in an orderly and safe manner, protecting both its workers and patients from the different places of operation in real time, helping in the efforts that the Institute has carried out since the beginning of the pandemic.
“AuraQuantic has given us many advantages, especially in generating an active flow of relevant clinical information from the patient and the timely reporting of laboratory results for respiratory pathogens. AuraQuantic has allowed the capture of information in real time not only in Mexico City, but also in the north, in the center and in the southeast of Mexico by the centers that participate in this epidemiological surveillance”. Declares the Institute.
