To facilitate the computerisation and sharing of Chinese medicine (CM) information in the Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHealth), the CM sector has to be equipped with the necessary technical capability. To this end, the CM Information System (CMIS) On-ramp has been developed as a turn-key Clinical Management System (CMS) to support the daily administration and operation of a CM clinic.


Major functions

Apart from providing basic functions of a typical CMS such as patient registration and appointment, clinical documentation, prescriptions and dispensary, billing etc., special features related to consultations on non-drug treatments such as acupuncture and bone-setting by CM practitioners are included.

To facilitate effective communication among CM practitioners, standardised terminologies are incorporated in the system and users may also customise terminologies to better meet their needs.

Most importantly, CMIS On-ramp complies with the security and system interoperability requirements for data sharing in eHealth, which paves way for the connection with the eHealth for sharing of CM clinical data.

Patient registration and appointment

Clinical documentation

CM prescribing and dispensing records

Non-drug treatments




Electronic healthcare record (eHR) sharing among CM practitioners

The proposed sharable scope of CM information in eHealth has been worked out, which include encounters and appointments, allergies and CM adverse drug reaction, CM diagnosis and procedures, as well as CM prescribing and dispensing records.

The sharing of CM information among CM practitioners is targeted to be launched in phases by end of 2021/22.
