Linking a clinical system to heterogeneous information resources.

Academic Article


  • We present a model for providing clinical information system (CIS) users with quick access to high quality information resources. We have developed a chest X-ray information button application which is attached to the chest X-ray reports in the CIS at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. The application generates questions based on clinical information, user interest, generic question templates, and resource availability. It then provides answers to the questions through integrated access to heterogeneous information resources including the CIS itself and publicly accessible Web resources.
