  • Publication number: 20060106641
    Abstract: A mobile monitoring and communication system integrates communication services (text, voice, video, and data) with medical information (e.g., patient medical record, patient demographics, reason for procedure, workflow information, etc.) within a radiology department, for example. A medical information system for use with portable processing devices involves a portable processing device including a communication processor for receiving messages from one or more different healthcare workers. An individual message identifies, a task for performance by a particular healthcare worker for a patient, patient and task associated context information and a priority level of the task. A user interface provides data representing at least one display image for display to a user and comprising an overview of tasks of the different healthcare workers including the task for performance by the particular healthcare worker.
