The National Diabetes Register (NDR) in Republic of Macedonia includes updated records for over 20.000 patients. The solution initially was designed and implemented by GORD Systems in 1999 as a Client/Server solution. The new version of the solution is based on modern Web technology, offers more features and gives possibility for easy designing and implementing new researches and examinations, statistical data analyses and reporting.
Starting 2005, the State Institute for Healthcare Protection (RZZZ) initiated several new researches based on the NDR database, as well as few new examinations, focused on the adult population.
The aim of this project is to allocate the risk factors (of the development of the diabetes, a well as its influence on other diseases like cardiovascular, circular and cancer dieses) and the connections to the habits and the quality of life of the adult population (food consummation habits, physical activity, smoking, alcohol consummation, etc., and monitoring of the cost for the treatment. The project data will help to develop national strategy for prevention of chronically diseases.
For the purpose of the project, GORD Systems developed a Web based solution that integrates the centralized National Diabetes Register and the new research projects. The users of the system allocated all over the country in 35 diabetes outpatient units and the RZZZ headquarter, access the system over the Internet. The solution enables the users to place relevant data about the selected target population groups, do data preparation, data analyses and reporting, or just access the results for reporting.
Data entry process is organized in adequate Web based forms, with build in data input controls and dependable logical relations between the data sets. Data analyses are performed with SPSS based tools, and the results are presented through web based reports.
There are four major groups of data sets:
The solution is secure e-Health solution, includes LDAP compatible ID Management system with support for data encryption, implementation of SSL Certificates, and personal smart cards.
