  • Publication number: 20140149132
    Abstract: Managing clinical data documents may involve receiving hierarchically organized clinical document text of a plurality of different clinical documents comprised of text elements, text element qualifiers, and text element values. An analysis of the text elements, the text element qualifiers and the text element values of the received clinical documents may be performed. Clinical concepts in the received documents based on the analysis may be identified. An inventory of identified concepts may be generated. Clinical concepts may be combined to provide concept combinations, and a data structure model using the inventory and the concept combinations may be generated.

  • Patent number: 8676599
    Abstract: A system and method for ordering healthcare services wherein a list of selectable orders for medical services for a given patient is dynamically generated based on medical information of the patient (e.g., the patient's condition or set of conditions) and presented to a user (e.g., a physician). In one aspect, a system for ordering patient specific healthcare services comprises a user interface that enables a user to input a medical condition of a patient and to select desired medical services from a list of orderable medical services presented to the user; a services database comprising a plurality of predetermined medical services that are each associated with a medical condition; and an engine for compiling the list of orderable medical services from one or more predetermined medical services in the services database that are associated with the input medical conditions of the patient.

  • Patent number: 8498870
    Abstract: A computerized integrated order entry and clinical documentation and voice recognition system enables voice responsive user entry of orders. The system includes a voice recognition unit for detecting spoken words and converting detected spoken words to data representing commands. A data processor, coupled to the voice recognition unit, processes the data representing commands provided by the voice recognition unit, to provide order and documentation related data and menu options for use by a user, by interpreting the data representing commands using an ordering and documentation application specific ontology and excluding use of other non-ordering or non-documentation application specific ontologies. The ordering application enables initiating an order for medication to be administered to a particular patient, or additional ordered services to be performed. A user interface processor, coupled to the data processor, provides data representing a display image.

  • Patent number: 8365068
    Abstract: In an embodiment of the present inventions, a work flow process may be generated by decomposing functions of a clinical information system into discrete tasks including an individual task associated with a first pre-configured executable procedure for implementing the individual task and associating a user selectable image element with the pre-configured first executable procedure used in implementing the individual task. In a currently envisioned embodiment, integratable work flow processes according to the present invention may be provided to a vertical application system. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract which will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the technical disclosure. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope of meaning of the claims.

  • Patent number: 7447644
    Abstract: A system for scheduling a set of tasks to be performed by at least one individual to support healthcare delivery employs a method for providing a user interface for processing an event. The event represents a change in circumstances potentially affecting healthcare delivered to a patient. The method involves initiating generation of at least one display image in response to user command. The display image or images support the identification of an event and an associated parameter as well as the designation of a predetermined process associated with the identified event. The display image or images also support user indication of the parameter to be provided to the predetermined process in response to occurrence of the event. The predetermined process comprises a set of tasks to be performed by at least one individual to support healthcare delivery. The display image or images also support designating an executable procedure to be initiated in response to occurrence of the identified event.

  • Patent number: 7310607
    Abstract: A system and user interface integrates and processes event associated messages affecting healthcare delivered to a patient and supports creation, initiation and modification of currently operating workflow processes involving processing of event messages. A method for processing an event representing a change in circumstances potentially affecting healthcare delivered to a patient involves receiving a message identifying an event potentially affecting healthcare delivered to a patient. Predetermined rules are applied to interpret the identified event to determine particular tasks to be performed in response to occurrence of the identified event. The particular tasks are scheduled to be performed by at least one individual in response to the occurrence of the identified event. In addition a database containing records indicating active process instances is searched to identify active process instances of a target process to be replaced by a process comprising the particular tasks.

  • Publication number: 20040153341
    Abstract: A system analyzes data including healthcare orders initiating treatment or services used in patient healthcare. The system includes a data processor and a message processor. The data processor identifies a potential change in use of a particular treatment by examining data, representing multiple orders generated over a particular time period, used in treating multiple patients to identify a number of orders initiating application of a particular treatment to individual patients of the multiple patients to address a particular medical condition. The data processor also determines whether the number of orders exceeds a predetermined threshold and/or whether a rate of change in the number of orders relative to a previously determined number of orders is significant. The message processor initiates generation of a message to alert a message recipient of an identified potential change in use of the particular treatment.
