Integration of interdisciplinary guidelines with clinical applications: Current and future scenarios.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Intermountain Healthcare (Intermountain) has developed a referential free-text interdisciplinary document collection to define standards for patient care. In order to improve access and use in bedside clinician workflow, Intermountain converted the document collection into a ubiquitous web-compatible format. The content has been structured using XML so it can be utilized by Intermountain's existing clinical applications, as well as positioning it for use in future deployed applications. It has become evident the strategy of structuring the content in this web-compatible format will support its use to drive current and future system functionality. As Intermountain moves forward in creating and deploying clinical applications, it is important to maintain and improve the current collection structure, sustaining the efficient integration and use of the content necessary to support clinician workflow and to meet information needs.
