Information system to health, electronic health record, SANA, m-health, e-health


Although digital computerization is already quite common, the use of health information systems is still very poor in most of the places. From a regional demand for support of health professionals working in basic health units (BHU) in the city of S˜ao Jo˜ao del Rei/MG, a research was conceived for development of an information system for sharing electronic health records among various BHU. In this article we present a review of the use of SANA, a standard-focused open-source platform to facilitate the creation and sharing electronic health records, for the development of an information system. For this, we developed and evaluated a prototype representing electronic records as requested by health experts. Finally, lessons learned are presented as well as solutions to problems encountered during development, including a reflection on the utility and convenience of the prototype generated by SANA platform considering the application context, and recommendations for future development.
