PRADE, Sandra Suzana  e  VASCONCELLOS, Miguel de Murat. Identifying Sources of Data in the Information Systems of the Brazilian Unified Health System for the Epidemiological Surveillance of Hospital Intections. Inf. Epidemiol. Sus [online]. 2001, vol.10, n.3, pp.121-128. ISSN 0104-1673.

This study analyses the health information systems in use by the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS) and their regulations, searching for sources of secondary data tocomplete a Minimum Form for the Epidemiological Surveillance of Hospital Infections (MFESHI). This form is composed of an instrument already used in a Brazilian study, and updated according to the legislation responsible for the norms of the Control Program of Hospital Infections (CPHI) in Brazil. The MFESHI is composed of fields designed for the patient's identification and clinical data, such as: diagnosis; hospitalization period; invasive procedures at risk for hospital infection; types of hospital infections by location and microorganisms involved; antibiotics prescribed; fever; community infection and complementary information useful for the analysis and classification of infections and their origin. Among the analyzed information systems, the best inputs were found in the Hospital Management System (HosPUB); the Hospitalization Information System (SIH-SUS) and in the Regulations of the Ministry of Health which modify or complement the SIHSUS. It was concluded that these systems are not capable of providing the necessary data to complete the information required for the proposed Minimum Form. Nevertheless they provide fields, which if incorporated into this Form will be able to generate compatibility and interfaces among themselves - provided that the patterns defined by the Inter Agency Network of Information for Health Care (RIPSA), Systematized Nomenclatures of Medicine (SNOMED) or others standards are followed and adopted. Such evidence justifies the need for the development of a specific information system for the CPHI, with modular characteristics compatible with not only the patient's future electronic register, but also the SIHSUS and HosPUB respectively. Validation of the indicators and the system should precede its development in electronic form
