AMIB, FEPIMCTI and Epimed Solutions have teamed up to create the National Intensive Care Register in Brazil.
Contribute to the knowledge of the epidemiological profile of Brazilian ICUs.
The present project, called UTIs Brasileiras, aims to characterize the epidemiologic profile of Brazilian ICUs and share useful information to guide health policies and strategies to improve the care of critically ill patients in the country.
In addition, the project aims to encourage the use of quality indicators and performance in the management of Brazilian ICUs and thereby improve the quality of intensive care and increase patient safety in Brazil.
Similar initiatives in Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, as part of the project “UCIs Ibero-americanas”, and in countries such as the United Kingdom (ICNARC), Australia and New Zealand (ANZICS-CORE), the Netherlands (NICE) and Belgium (MICA) are essential to improve the quality and safety of critically ill patients and are an important basis for projects that aim to improve the efficiency of the ICU and to promote clinical research.
Participating hospitals receive certificates with stamps of participation in the National Registry and indicator management.
How does it work?
Clinical and epidemiological data on high-complexity patients are collected using the Epimed Monitor system, a management software that allows you to integrate structured data from any hospital system and/or input data manually if the hospital does not have a structured information system.
Capturing such data using this tool generates indicator reports very quickly and easily, in addition to real-time benchmarking between the intensive care units participating in Brazil and participation in the National Registry database.
