I’m organising a meeting at Queen’s Uni Belfast on 1-2 June 2020. I’m hoping to do a session on Tuesday on aspects of OpenEHR relevant to peri-operative medicine.
As a rough guide, the areas of clinical practice under consideration are :
- Surgical and Anaesthetic Digital Care Records
- Specialist Anaesthetic Care Records (e.g. Obs, Paeds, Dental, ECT)
- Continuous Physiological Monitoring - basic (e.g. ECG, Blood Pressure, SpO2 etc) or advanced (e.g. Cardiac output, invasive BP, Depth of Anaesthesia)
- Post-op Pain Management and Follow-up.
- Critical Care
Not specific to peri-operative care but usually a component of it :
- Referral Management
- Integration with Electronic Medicines Management, especially for device infusions
- Device Management and Integration - e.g. infusion devices, assisted ventilation
- Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs)
- Early Warning Scoring e.g. NEWS2
Related Categories :
- Theatre Management/Scheduling
- Staff Management/Scheduling
- Resource Planning
- Comms e.g. Telephony, Instant Messaging
- Finance (US esp)
In other words, the scope is wide ! I’m at the start of a project to map out the archetypes and templates that might be useful in building a comprehensive care record, and I believe that New Zealand are similarly looking to specify their requirements. What’s the best way to approach this - are there any modelling tools other than https://ehrscape.marand.si/designerv2 that can assist in the mapping/mind mapping process ?
Volunteers to speak at the meeting in Belfast would be v welcome.
