The Computer and its Functions at Highlands Health Centre

The role of computers in today's National Health Service has changed considerably in recent years. Computerised appointments systems and prescribing are now widely used and well recognised by patients. This, however, forms only a part of the extensive uses of the computer system in modern health care.

Our clinical computer records now include a record of patient referrals to secondary care, details of our monitoring of the health of patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma and coronary heart disease, accurate records of ante natal care, details of patients' allergies, doctor/patient consultation records, scanned copies of patients' letters and a full and accurate summary of patients' medical histories. All of this information ensures that we can offer our patients the best possible health care. Computers are also used to make direct referrals to secondary care following a consultation between patients and their GP, during which referral choices are discussed.
