Abstract

Background : Electronic medical records may not be ideal for ophthalmology due to specialized examinations and findings. Purpose : To report a new system for ophthalmology added to Fujitsu electronic medical records system at our university hospital. Method : This system was used to handle outpatients in ophthalmology for one month. New and follow-up patients totalled 103 and 2,396, respectively. Results : Basic data were presented on the left hand and ophthalmologic ones on the right hand of dual monitors. Visual acuity, refraction and intraocular pressure were automatically transferred into the system. Spaces were provided for slit-lamp or fundus photographs. Prescriptions, billing and next appointments were handled by the Fujitsu system. Conclusion : The new system facilitated handling of a large number of patients in ophthalmology.
