Electronic Health Authorization Systems

The St. Maarten Electronic Health Authorization System (St. Maarten Electronic Health Authorization System) is a national system, which is currently in place on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. It aims to promote better practices at the workplace and to reduce or eliminate health risks. It uses digital patient records (also known as EMRs) to track each person's history, identify risks, and monitor their health. It monitors employee activities and ensures compliance with company rules.


St. Maarten is poor, with low economic growth rates and high fatality rates. It has one of the highest health care costs in the world. Its location on an English-speaking Caribbean island is the reason. It also has a poor system for tracking records and maintaining patient information, so its electronic health system was developed.

Employees will need a signature at a local machine to print their cards. Once printed, they can bring the cards to their office to hand to their managers or HR department. This is cumbersome and makes managing your own documents difficult for some departments. They also have to store documents safely and can only do this if the documents are stored on digital files, which can be lost or damaged.

When an employee signs in at the signing machine, there is no paper trail, so the company has no way of knowing who did what and when. The electronic health authorization system records every transaction and stores it in a computer database. Every time an employee accesses a file, the computer digitally stores that file for the user's own records.

St. Maarten's electronic health authorization system makes paperless management and administration a lot easier. In St. Maarten, there is a lack of trained medical personnel, so many procedures are done on the spot. These include x-rays and laboratory tests, as well as medication refills and other important lab work that cannot be done without proper documentation.

An electronic health record saves a lot of time for a medical company or hospital. This is because there aren't as many patients to handle and the time that they do have to spend administering treatments are cut down. Instead of having to do the paperwork, the electronic health record keeps everything in the computer database. The electronic health record records every new patient who needs treatment. It's digitally recorded so that it takes much less time to fill out forms.
