  • Publication number: 20190095583
    Abstract: A method for electronic medical record processing in presence of conflicts. The method includes obtaining, from a first local source, a first action to be performed on an electronic medical record stored in a central electronic medical record database and making a first determination that a first conflict exists in the electronic medical record. Based on the first determination the severity of the first conflict in view of the first action to be performed is assessed. The first conflict is deemed severe if the first conflict prevents execution of the first action, and the first conflict is deemed non-severe if the first conflict does allow execution of the first action. The method further includes making a second determination that the first conflict is non-severe, and based on the second determination, performing the first action on the electronic medical record.
