“Need — Healthcare throughout the world is growing in expense and complexity. As new technologies and medications are developed, and new care options become available, the ability for the healthcare community to provide quality care is improving and yet the risks of complications and miscommunications are greater without a better understanding of data and workflow requirements in a multi-provider healthcare environment. The great potential for health information technology (HIT) to improve the efficiency and quality of clinical health care has yet to be fully realized on a consistent, industry-wide basis. Despite major increases in the power and flexibility of computing there remains a gap between our ability to implement technology and our ability to understand how that technology will impact the performance of care. Synchrony between information flow and the appropriate workflow of clinical care is a key principle for usability, efficiency, and care quality. When HIT design decisions are not based on improving the efficiency and quality of clinical health care, the resulting solution can rearrange clinical workflow by accident rather than by design. This Guide aims to make an explicit, understandable connection between HIT and the methodical improvement of clinical health care.”
The foregoing excerpt from “Field Guide to Shareable Clinical Pathways — BPMN, CMMN & DMN in Healthcare — Version: 1.0” by the OMG Healthcare Domain Taskforce published on May 21, 2018 describes not only the purpose of the document but also the purpose of the workflow feature of the Cloud Healthcare Appliance Real-Time Solution as a Service (CHARTSaaS)©. This statement of purpose is further elaborated upon in a webinar by Robert Lario, Enterprise Architect at the USA Veterans Health Administration Health Informatics, and Denis Gagne’, Partner and CEO and CTO at Trisotech.
CHARTSaaS© specifies a software development environment (SDE) that is architected for use by healthcare provider subject matter experts (SMEs) to design, develop, deploy, operate and optimize mobile information technology (IT) applications or “apps” with minimal IT staff assistance or impact on IT system resoures. These apps can be designed to automate standard-of-care and best-practice processes such as pathology-specific clinical pathways, differential diagnosis or treatment planning using features for process/case design, Boolean rules/decision design, Bayesian multi-dimensional similarity and predictive analytics, connectivity and interoperability with electronic health record (EHR) systems and other CHARTSaaS© subscriber sources of data. The healthcare provider SME can operate these features using drag-and-drop and point-and-click techniques design, develop, deploy, operate and optimize mobile apps.
Please validate this proposition to your own satisfaction by reading the white paper or viewing a presentation. You will see how CHARTSaaS©-built apps can mitigate medical mistakes (currently the third leading cause of patient deaths in the USA, per Makary and Daniel); thereby minimizing patient adverse events and optimizing clinical case outcomes while maximizing the cost-effectiveness of care and treatment and also accelerating the accrual and facilitating the application of medical knowledge. Please contact me, Pete Melrose, at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 (612) 201-2301 to discuss and decide re how you or your organization can participate in development completion and launch of CHARTSaaS©. Patient lives may depend on your decision. Thanks for your consideration and hopefully your support, and good wishes for another great day!
