The PNIPH, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, launched the National Mammogram e-Registry after conducting a 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 progm 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.
The Mammogram e-Registry is customized to follow-up and track information about every woman undergoing screening; the patient file is then accurately recorded in a centralized electronic system. This system is designed to notify patients about their forthcoming appointments via Short Messages System (SMS), thereby increasing women's participation in the program.
In addition, decision makers and health strategists will have access to timely and accurate information about mammography screening in Palestine. Such data are vital for the adoption of appropriate measure targeted at improving women's health, especially in relation to breast cancer.
