Implementing a Model-Based Design Environment for Clinical Information Systems
Source: Vanderbilt University
Health care is a rapidly evolving field that is increasingly supported through Clinical Information Systems (CIS) that integrate care providers, patients, and computer applications. Local and federal regulations require health care systems to define and enforce privacy and security policies to protect sensitive patient data within CIS. Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) have been successfully applied to specific clinical services, such as decision support, but have yet to be adopted for large-scale CIS that need to account for diverse information technology architectures and complex person-computer interactions.
