UMIAS (Unified Medical Information Analysis System) is offering a new service on its website. Now Muscovites can find out online a physician’s and office’s working hours and whether a specialist is on vacation or on sick leave. The schedule for adult, paediatric and dental clinics is updated daily.
The Unified Medical Information Analysis System was launched in 2011. It stores medical records, and provides for patient flow management and personalised record-keeping of medical services. UMIAS users can find an outpatient clinic closest to their home, book an appointment with a doctor online, reschedule an appointment and obtain a certificate or a subsidised prescription. The system collects and analyses data on doctors’ workload, the average waiting time and much more.
Every week, about 16,000 new patients register with UMIAS, which includes 47 outpatient clinics of the Moscow Department of Healthcare. Over the first six months of 2016, the number of online bookings rose by nearly 130,000 per month.
