ASB Medical Record Keeping Achieves High Marks!

As you may know, health facilities in rural areas of developing countries rarely treat patients in the hospital alone. Doctors and nurses must often travel out into the field during mobile medical missions to reach their community. H.O.P.E.'s mobile clinics in particular, treat up to 300 patients at a time; this can make record-keeping quite challenging for staff, which must retrieve current or assign new patient numbers for the residents they are treating, ultimately putting patient information at-risk for being lost somewhere during the process.

Over the years, ASB Hospital and dental clinic have taken great steps to ensure patient information is collected accurately and tracked on-site, so that residents can begin to build a comprehensive patient file that shows the full picture of their needs. H.O.P.E.'s executive director, Rose-Marie Chierici recently visited Borgne in April while the team's medical record keeping was being evaluated by Haiti's Ministry of Health. She shared that the MOH praised Dr. Thony and his staff at ASB for their  exceptional efforts, and gave them a score of 85/100, an incredible feat for any hospital in Haiti, much less a rural community hospital of their size and location.

As a donor, your support provides ASB hospital with the necessary resources the staff needs to continue providing the best-possible patient care, which includes keeping good records for accurate future treatment. Naturally, Dr. Thony always strives for 100% and believes whole-heartedly in the capacity of his staff. He has already met with the team to discuss the feedback from the MOH, and prepare a strategy for improvement.

We are so proud of this team, an so grateful for your role in their progress as sponsors to this work. Onward and upward!

 

Thank you,
Team H.O.P.E.
