DEVELOPING A FLEXIBLE ELECTRONIC PATIENT RECORD AS A WEB OF ACTIVE DOCUMENTS

Federico Cabitza, Giovanni Zorzato

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the architecture of WOAD, a design-oriented framework that we proposed to enact a bottom-up and document-centered approach to the development of Electronic Patient Records. We provide the essential elements of WOAD: the concept of Active Document, Didget, Template and Mechanism. Then we summarize the observational studies that inspired its development and that gave the preliminary user feedback for its validation by means of the deployment of ProDoc, a WOAD-compliant patient record. We then illustrate the core implementation details of the WOAD architecture, as it has been deployed in ProDoc.
