Dear all :

This is a sneak preview of what’s going on in the development of MEDICAL

There is a new module for pediatrics, which will cover the existing neonatology and all the other pediatric information.

Newborn wristbands
To maximize security and identification of the newborn, MEDICAL assigns a newborn ID, and allows to print the four identification bands to place it on the baby and mother’s wrists and ankles.

Newborn barcoded wristband created by MEDICAL
The identification band will have a unique barcode that can be checked by the institution security personnel at anytime. 

New Pediatrics Module and enhanced Neonatology information

The new pediatrics module will cover the neonatal , infancy, toddler and teenage information.

The neonatology process has been extensively revised, with many new indicators and functionality, such as :

  • Multiple APGAR tests
  • Automatic APGAR score
  • Newborn reflexes, 
  • Improved sign and symptoms
  • New newborn tests

The antenatal information and the puerperium remains in the gynecology / obstetrics module.

You can check the new functionality in the development version. Please test it and let us know your suggestions !
