Öffentliche Ringvorlesung "Medienproduktion im Wandel": "3rd Generation Hospital Information Systems (HIS): From Information Processing to Workflow Management"
The presentation starts with a motivation how big the opportunities are to improve the delivery of care while reducing the costs of care at the same time. Then, design goals for a modern HIS are derived and examples are given. Afterwards, the functionality of a modern HIS as well as a typical Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) are presented. The system design is based on a highly scalable 4-tier Web architecture, includes workflow and rules engines, provides decision support in form of an automated alert and notification system, and can be hosted in data centers or today's Cloud environments. The presentation will conclude with some outlook what might come next.
