NHF LAUNCHES INTRANET, NHFi ? A CONFIDENTIAL SITE DESIGNED FOR LOCAL HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS

The National Health Fund has launched its Intranet, NHFi, a private communications network restricted to registered health care professionals in Jamaica and designed to facilitate their information needs. The NHFi provides users with information on drug interactions utilising the MediSpan Drug Interaction System. All professional associations are allotted space to provide information and communicate with their members and the NHFi also has e-mail facilities for providers, sponsors and associations.

While access to the site is free for all registered healthcare professionals in Jamaica, applications must be approved by the NHF before access is granted. The site is open to doctors registered with the Medical Council, pharmacists registered with the Pharmacy Council, Nurses registered with the Nursing Council and other health professionals registered with the Council Supplementary to Medicine.

Confidentiality and security of information on the private network is assured since it is only available to approved users. The NHFi allows for transmittal of personal medical data and other confidential information.

In addition any information requested from applicants during the registration process is for the sole purpose of authenticating the eligibility of health care professionals and organizations which they purport to represent.

Bayer, a well known pharmaceutical company is the first Sponsor for the NHFi. Their page provides information on Bayer drugs offered in Jamaica and the Caribbean including their drugs on the NHF Programme.

The NHF is inviting all healthcare professionals to apply for registration on the NHFi and benefit from the information and facilities that the site provides for health professionals. Applicants may register through the NHF website at www.nhf.org.jm One hundred and fifty (150) health professionals have already registered to use the NHFi.
