A server architecture for ambulatory patient record systems

Medinfo. 1995;8 Pt 1:219-22.


Baylor College of Medicine is developing the Collaborative Social and Medical Services System (CSMSS) to provide a computerized patient record (CPR) system for the Teen Health Clinics (THC) [1]. The THCs consist of five geographically distributed clinics providing health care and social services to teenagers in the Harris County Hospital District. The CSMSS is the first application built upon the Ambulatory Systems Architecture (ASA) [2]. The ASA is aimed at providing an architecture and application framework for the development and deployment of CPR systems in ambulatory care settings. This paper describes the ASA server architecture.
