  • Publication number: 20070059704
    Abstract: The invention provides a methods and materials for detecting an activity of a glycopeptide antibiotic (such as a vancomycin-type antibiotic), in a sample, the method comprising the steps of: (a) providing a microorganism in which a first endogenous gene encoding peptidyltransferase activity is inactivated, which activity is necessary for growth of the microorganism, and which activity can be complemented by a second, different, peptidyltransferase, which second peptidyltransferase is inducible in the microorganism by the presence of the antibiotic, (b) contacting the sample with the microorganism, (c) observing the microorganism for growth, wherein growth of the microorganism is correlated with the presence of the antibiotic.

  • Publication number: 20060080140
    Abstract: A system and method for providing a clinical summary of patient data in a health care setting. The system and method comprises a graphical user interface in communication with a health information system for accessing patient data. The graphical user interface is capable of displaying a clinical summary of patient data in a summary window in a textual format and a graphical format. The system and method further comprises a user record allowing a user to specify and configure the patient data displayed in the summary window. The user record includes configuration and security settings for selectively controlling the display of the user-specified patient data, and a user can select from the displayed patient data, access additional information about the selected patient data, generate detailed reports including the selected patient data, and generate graphical representations including the selected patient data.

  • Publication number: 20050283387
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for providing a comprehensive interactive anatomical graphical representation of a body for use in a health care environment. The system comprises a health care information system having at least one data repository for storing data and at least one graphical user interface in communication with the at least one data repository, and at least one anatomical map of a body stored in the health care information system and displayable by the graphical user interface for managing care. Because the graphical representation of the at least one anatomical map of a body is integrated within the enterprise health care information system, it allows a user to access patient data and health care facility resource data, perform actions on the displayed patients and health care facility resources, and manage patient care and health care facility resources.

  • Publication number: 20020138636
    Abstract: A method of automatically generating and distributing personalized data reports via an electronic network comprising the steps of defining a set of report groups, creating a report template, and associating the report template with appropriate report groups of the set of report groups. The method also includes creating a security class and associating with the security class report groups of the set of report groups accessible to the security class. The method further includes providing the user with access to the report template based upon the security level, checking a user's security level and displaying the appropriate templates based on the check, creating a report output based on the report template, and providing the report output via the electronic network.
