Uruguay's National Electronic Health Record System

In 2007, Uruguay began a health reform process through which a National Integrated Health System (SNIS) was created. From the beginning, both from a political and technical point of view, the need to have a National Electronic Health Record (HCEN) was taken into account in order to ensure that the members of the health teams of the providers had access to the clinical documents that make up the electronic health record of each patient/user, regardless of the provider or site where they originated and regardless of the geographical location of the user. In this document, we summarize how this process was carried out and all the decisions that were made along the way so that the experience can be used by other countries in the region.
