The Urgent Need for a Universal Medical History

In the current digital era, technology has radically transformed various aspects of our lives, and one of the most impacted sectors has been healthcare.

The digitization of medical records has been a significant advancement, streamlining access to vital patient information. However, this progress brings with it a considerable challenge: the fragmentation of healthcare systems.

In many cases, patient information is scattered across multiple platforms and formats, hindering coherent and continuous medical care. This situation underscores the urgent need for a universal medical history that is accessible and understandable on a global level.

Modern medicine requires effective collaboration among healthcare professionals worldwide, as well as the integration of data from various sources. The lack of interoperability between healthcare systems presents significant barriers to accessing and efficiently managing health information.

This problem not only affects the continuity and quality of patient care but also hampers the response to global medical emergencies.

Universal medical history: improvement in healthcare system efficiency.

A universal medical history would overcome these obstacles by offering an integrated system that ensures the availability of patient information, regardless of geographical location or healthcare system.

This approach would not only improve individual medical care but also facilitate research and the development of more effective health policies globally and locally.

In the era of globalization, the need for an accessible and universal healthcare system is more critical than ever. The ability to communicate and receive adequate care should not be compromised by linguistic or geographical barriers. Additionally, the experiences of individuals with certain conditions in different parts of the world can greatly enrich knowledge and treatment strategies globally.

Various initiatives and platforms, such as HL7 FHIR, OpenMRS, and solutions from Microsoft and Google, have been developed to advance towards a universal medical history by standardizing data exchange and improving interoperability between healthcare systems.

However, economic interests in the healthcare sector often hinder data exchange, prioritizing revenue generation over patient well-being.

Faced with these issues, FySelf emerges as an innovative solution, proposing a model that not only addresses the technical and logistical challenges of interoperability but also takes a firm stance against the commodification of health data.

In our next article, we will talk about how FySelf enables Personalized Health Management.
