Process Based Data Logistics: A solution for Clinical Integration Problems
Stefan Jablonski, Reiner Lay, Christian Meiler, Sascha Müller
Integration is a big issue in healthcare environments. One aspect of integration is data logistics that supplies physicians with relevant patient data along treatment processes. The two main tasks facilitated by data logistics are data transportation and data transformation. To enable data transport, workflow management concepts are adopted for indirect process support to supply data. To enable data transformation, formats, ontologies and terminologies are considered in an XML based transformation approach. A case study regarding self tonometry illustrates this approach.
