Panama integrates perinatal information thanks to SIP PLUS

26 Nov 2021

Montevideo, October 26, 2021- The Social Security Fund and the Ministry of Health of Panama (MINSA) have integrated perinatal data through SIP Plus, CLAP's digital tool that collects each pregnant woman’s key data, from the first antenatal visit to the hospital discharge of the mother and her newborn. This partnership will allow to provide care to a woman at any center, indistinctly. 

SIP has a long history in Panama, as the country is currently implementing the basic record of SIP Plus. Its use is included in the national standards of Panama and is used as the country’s official medical record in obstetrics. This achievement was possible thanks to the hard work conducted by MINSA, the Social Security Fund, PAHO Panama and CLAP.
