Patient coordination in emergency departments using an event-based information architecture
Paper i proceeding, 2014
It is challenging to get an overview and understanding of the activities and their relations at an emergency department (ED). This is due to the complicated relations among activities - called operations in this paper - and the always changing system behavior. Two key enablers to get this overview are the transformation of real-time events into understandable information and an operation-based behavior description. This paper presents an event-based information architecture for healthcare (EVAH) for gathering state changing events in real-time at an ED and how these are transformed into an operation-based representation. EVAH together with the tool Sequence Planner, will be used for visualization, online prognosis and optimization.
