Abstract:   (979 Views)
Aims: The Electronic Health Record is a collection of medical information about a person's health status. The development of electronic health records has occurred worldwide, and developing countries, including Iran, have been no exception and have tried to take action in this regard. Therefore, this study aimed to review the types of Electronic Health Records designed in Iran.
Information & Methods: This systematic review was conducted without any time limitation until 12 June 2022 by searching the keywords "Electronic Health Record", and "Iran", and their synonyms in the Web of Science, PubMed, Scopus, SID, and Magiran databases, and Google Scholar search engine. Published articles on the development or design of electronic health records in Iran were reviewed.
Findings: Among 28 papers, 11, 6, and 11 records were designed in Electronic Health Record, Electronic Medical Record, and Personal Electronic Record formats, respectively. Approximately 46% of the studies only designed electronic records but never implemented them, and the rest (54%) had completed the electronic record development. Among 15 implemented records, 7, 4, and 4 were in Personal Electronic Record, Electronic Health Record, and Electronic Medical Records formats, respectively. In addition, implementation platforms for records were in the form of web-based, mobile-based, and windows-based applications. Most of the minimum data set in the designed records were demographic data, medical history, therapeutic procedures, and laboratory tests.
Conclusion: Designing various Electronic Health Record systems for different diseases and clinical conditions can be an effective step toward developing a national Electronic Health Record.
