Will XML And FHIR Replace HL7

In our previous discussion, we have already determined that the FHIR protocols stand a very high chance of replacing the HL& protocols. Experts in the field have given us a number of reasons as to why the FHIR protocols stand a very high chance of replacing the HL7 protocols. Especially so is the fact that these protocols come right after the failure of the third version of the HL7 protocols to impress the market, so to speak. The third version of the HL7 protocols, have been tagged as having no marked difference from the previous versions. In essence, the third version of the HL7 protocol was moot before even they were used in the market. Read More...

WatsonPaths : Natural interaction between physicians, data and EMRs

WatsonPaths : Natural interaction between physicians, data and EMRs | iPacemaker project | Scoop.it

After a year-long research collaboration with faculty, physicians and students at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, IBM Research has unveiled two cognitive computing technologies that can be used by Watson, and are expected to help physicians make more informed and accurate decisions faster and to cull new insights from electronic medical records (EMR).


The projects known as “WatsonPaths” and “Watson EMR Assistant” will create technologies that can be used by Watson in the domain of medicine.


With the WatsonPaths project, IBM scientists have trained the system to interact with medical domain experts in a way that’s more natural for them, enabling the user to more easily understand the structured and unstructured data sources the system consulted and the path it took in offering an option. The Watson EMR Assistant project aims to enable physicians to uncover key information from patients’ medical records, in order to help improve the quality and efficiency of care.


"Through our research collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, we've been able to significantly advance technologies that Watson can leverage to handle more and more complex problems in real time and partner with medical experts in a much more intuitive fashion. These are breakthrough technologies intended to assist future versions of Watson products." said Eric Brown, IBM Research Director of Watson Technologies.

Using Mobile to Bridge the Physical and Digital Worlds in Healthcare

Using Mobile to Bridge the Physical and Digital Worlds in Healthcare | iPacemaker project | Scoop.it

We are in the midst of a transformative time as mobile phones become an increasingly important part of our everyday lives.  The mobile device has permeated every major industry, forever changing the way we get our news, learn in the classroom, entertain ourselves, manage our finances and stay in touch with family and friends.  The healthcare industry is not immune to the impact of mobile and has been embracing mobile in waiting rooms, doctor’s offices and even operating rooms.

 

The mobile phone allows us to link the physical and digital worlds in a matter of seconds, empowering healthcare professionals, patients and consumers to gain access to vital information when they need it most.  The numbers are impressive – 62 percent of physicians are now using tablets, with over half of them using it at the point-of-care.  Over 247 million people have downloaded one or more of the 40,000 medical apps available for tablets and smartphones.  Researchers estimate that the worldwide market for mobile health technology will reach $11.8Bn by 2018 versus just $1.2Bn in 2011.

It is a registered trademark and a resource that has been developed by HL7(health level 7) as a better system that leverages on the strengths of the previous ones. The resources contained in the system represent Healthcare related information that can be easily transferred and exchanged between different healthcare professionals and interested agencies. The information can be electronically exchanged between different health practitioners in their day to day engagements. The information that is contained in the resource is a s follows:Patients records that are kept by the various members of the organization. Secondly,reports of t various diagnostics in the member health institutions.

HL7 and NCI collaborate on clinical trial link to EHRs

HL7 and NCI collaborate on clinical trial link to EHRs | iPacemaker project | Scoop.it

From FierceHealthIT:

 

Standards organization Health Level Seven International, better known as HL7, is working with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to facilitate the delivery of clinical trial data to clinicians via their electronic health records (EHRs). The effort will use HL7's Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), which is also the foundation of the clinical summary that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposes to use in the 2014 edition of certified EHR technology.

 

"Studies have shown that right now it can take seven years or more for new research advances to be put into clinical practice," Robert Dolin, MD, vice chair of the HL7 board of directors said in an announcement. "We can make that process much quicker by improving physician access to clinical trial data, and by expressing clinical trial data using meaningful use EHR standards."

Interoperability Between Cardiac Monitoring Devices and EMRs Improves Quality of Care

Interoperability Between Cardiac Monitoring Devices and EMRs Improves Quality of Care | iPacemaker project | Scoop.it

With healthcare providers under continuing pressure to provide better care at lower costs, remote cardiac monitoring devices are becoming popular and valuable patient care tools, fueling U.S. market growth expected to top more than 25 percent between 2011 and 2016. (1) The devices enable cardiologists to monitor patients for extended periods of time outside the costly hospital environment, improving their ability to identify problems and provide early intervention that can support better outcomes and reduce the need for expensive future care.


LifeWatch Services, a leading provider of remote patient monitoring services, is convinced that integrating the remote monitoring data directly into providers' electronic medical record (EMR) systems is becoming increasingly critical to providing cost-effective, high quality cardiac care.


Meeting demand for efficient care


Cardiovascular disease continues to be the country's leading cause of death for both men and women, costing close to $109 billion annually in healthcare, medications and lost productivity, according to the American Heart Association. With remote devices, cardiologists and cardiac electrophysiologists (EPs), specialists in diagnosing and treating the electrical activities of the heart, can more efficiently collect and analyze data on larger numbers of cardiac patients.


However, the ability to quickly and conveniently access this data and integrate it with other information in the patient's EMR is the true key to improving care, especially given that patients are likely to be treated by multiple physicians, observes LifeWatch Chief Executive Officer Dr. Yacov Geva.


"The tremendous expansion of EMR systems in hospitals and physician practices over the past few years now makes it possible to have a centralized repository of information for each patient. Interoperability between the cardiac monitoring devices and EMRs puts monitoring results right at the physicians' fingertips, along with all the other patient data," he says.


Interoperability streamlines both the ordering of the devices and the reporting of results. Staff can electronically request monitors, including durations, start dates and patient demographic and insurance information. As soon as a patient begins using the monitor, daily reports go directly into the patient's EMR.


Better informed decision-making


In addition to providing a comprehensive picture by consolidating the monitoring data with the patient's diagnostic procedures, device implants, treatment and follow-up, integrating the data into the EMR allows cardiologists to see firsthand any monitoring results they choose, not simply review the EP summaries.
