An example of health system improvement that I want to share hasn’t yet implemented, but it is a very interesting project that is sharing patient data between hospitals (interoperability). I believe that this program will improve many aspects of the health system if it is successful: sometimes some patients travel to many hospitals for treating their disease and the data will be recorded redundantly or some patients have adverse drug reactions history, for example. As a consequence of this, if we can link some necessary data between hospital patient would gain better quality and safety life and many others. However, there are some possible barriers that should be considered – we need to understand the personal data protection act for protecting patient data from unauthorized people or hackers, the inability to match the patient with the records between hospitals, lack of professional staffs, lack of technical support and infrastructure, and many others.
