“It’s as if we’ve been waiting for it for a long time, and we didn’t know what we were waiting for. And the moment we got it, we became aware of all the benefits. It is a network that provides all data about the patient in one place,” said PHD/MD Radivoj Kocić about the implementation of the information systems designed by the company “Heliant”.
During the recent opening of the representative office of the “Heliant” company in Niš, in its show “From Morning into a Day”, the TV Broadcaster Zone Plus presented, as it announced, the “Heliant project”, which concerned Niš healthcare and which not only employed young and creative people, but it would also ensure that Niš healthcare services should become networked”.
As the host, Žika Živadinović, explained:
“Every information entered in the patient’s record at the specialist’s office becomes part of the patient’s individual record, and at any moment the physician will be able to know the history of the patient’s illness, examinations, every piece of information will be in one place. And that’s a very good thing.”
PhD/MD Radivoj Kocić, assistant director of the Niš University Clinical Centre, told TV Zone Plus that “Heliant represents a great step forward” and added:
“It’s as if we’ve been waiting for it for a long time, and we didn’t know what we were waiting for. And the moment we got it, we became aware of all the benefits. It is a network that provides all data about the patient in one place,” said PHD/MD Radivoj Kocić.
He pointed out as very important the question that is occasionally asked by patients – whether data about their illness can be misused.
“Not at all! Here, we know exactly who can access and examine the patient,” emphasized MD Kocić.
He believes that with the implementation of Heliant information systems, everyone benefits with something.
“And that’s where the satisfaction is – patients are satisfied because many times they undergo some examinations, and we have all the information on such examinations, as they would say, in the computer. It’s very easy to find the information and compare at any time,” says MD Kocić, emphasizing that the use of such data is now much simpler and faster.
MD Kocić points out that the most important fact is the fact that the University Clinical Centre, which now has more than 30 clinics that must communicate with each other, has established the “fastest and simplest way of communicating and providing complete information about each patient.”
“It is a great advantage, something that has been used in the world for many years, and now it is present here as well,” said PhD/MD Radivoj Kocić, assistant director of the Niš University Clinical Centre.
