for a HealthCare Facility starts with the identification of the involved party
(individual or organization) and their business role (Doctor, Nurse, Patient,
Hospital, etc) with respect to the facility. Other Facilities may also be
associated as appropriate. For example, a Doctor may practice at other
Facilities and there may be a specific facility for specialized treatments.
Disease Identification is with respect to the ICD Codes. Treatments given a
Patient are recorded as well as the Outcomes including any adverse reactions.
The HealthCare Practitioner associated with each treatment and diagnosis is also
KnowTech® HealthCare Management Solution is designed so that it is possible to
obtain information to make policy decisions such as effect of treatments for the
old age. Dimensional Analysis is available for Location, Health Effects
(Disease/Injury), Age and Gender. Selection criteria are user definable and may
be combined with those established by others.
Definitions based on the ICD Series Standards. Currently we have Series7, 8, 9
Self-defined Disease Groupings and perform searches to assist in Epidemiological
definition of a Person or Health Facility (Business Party) associated with the
Hospital/Health Care Facility. Eliminate the need to join or search multiple
tables based on the role of the business party. You still have the specific role
based “lists” for the single purpose application uses.
Business Party can have multiple roles. This virtually eliminates data
duplication and inconsistencies between say, a person stored once as a Patient
then again as a Doctor. Business Parties can have multiple relationships based
on business roles and activities. An individual can be an employee, shareholder,
director, etc. Companies can be partners, joint ventures with varying
Business Party can have name changes over time. Multiple Names are also possible
for say, Acronyms, Trade Names, etc. One Name must however, be designated as
Primary and Active. Would it not be ideal to find the Business Party with any of
the known names instead of the most current?
Business Party can have multiple usages for an address such as Head Office,
Shipping, Receiving, Laboratory, Home, etc. Why not search for the address and
find out the usage instead of having to know the combination? You also get in
the added benefit of ISO-3166 Country definitions and codes. Do you remember the
most recent country name changes?
Address may be the location for more than one Business Party. In a household,
all the family members are at the same address. This again eliminates data
duplication and reduces the effort in data entry. Also a Business Party can have
multiple methods of electronic contact such as telephone, both land and
wireless, a fax and e-mail and whatever else that may come along.
Parties can have multiple relationships based on business roles and activities.
An individual can be an employee, shareholder, director, etc. Companies can be
partners, joint ventures with varying share/ownership ratios.
