Trauma e-Registry
last updated 10-04-2016

Overview

Injury and violence are major public health issues, accounting for over 5 million deaths a year and many other non-fatal outcomes. The Injury data systems, at the country level, are a key foundation of the public health approach for preventing injuries. To Promote wider and more standardized data collection for injury surveillance, and to promote best practices and policy-level changes for system-wide improvements in care of the injured; PNIPH is leading an initiative to establish the National Injury Surveillance system with close cooperation with the Ministry of Health.

Progress and Improvements

In order to establish a minimum dataset to facilitate the establishment of trauma e-registry, the PNIPH:

  • Prepared the List of Injury Surveillance indicators;
  • Prepared the registry forms for both new visits and follow-up visits.
  • Started the pilot implementation in two governmental hospitals.
  • PNIPH is now building an electronic patient base registry using a web application technology.

Mammogram e-Registry

The PNIPH, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, launched the National Mammogram e-Registry after conducting training for Ministry of Health doctors and radiology technicians from four districts on using the registry. The registry was established based on a study conducted by the PNIPH that examines the performance of national mammography screening program in Palestine. The study resulted in many significant recommendations, which were adopted by the Ministry of Health and converted into concrete measures that will have a long-lasting impact on the early detection of breast cancer.

Comprehensive Assessment of Civil Registration and Vital Statistics

Countries need to know how many people are born and die each year – and the main causes of their deaths – in order to have well-functioning health systems. The only way to count everyone and to track all births and deaths is through civil registration. Civil registration provides the basis for individual legal identity but also allows countries to identify their most pressing health issues.
