The ability to have access to information relevant to patient care is essential within the healthcare environment. To meet the information needs of its workers, healthcare information systems must fulfill a variety of functional requirements. One of these requirements is to define how workers will interact with the system to gain the information they need.(More)
We elicited from medical house staff their preferences for e-mail and alphanumeric pager as communication channels for the delivery of 18 different types of clinical information about their inpatients. For each type, we calculated the proportion of users who preferred delivery by e-mail, pager, both, or neither (usual delivery). For 14/18 (78%) types, more(More)
Although the literature on event monitoring is extensive, it does not cover all issues that we encountered while developing an event monitor at our institution. We had to resolve issues related to event detection, scalability, what topics were suitable for asynchronous decision support, and overlap of efforts of other groups at the institution attempting to(More)
We developed a clinical event monitor that is currently deployed in an inpatient setting. We selected CLIPS as the basis for its KB and inference engine. This paper describes the considerations that went into that decision, how we represented drug and laboratory knowledge in CLIPSs, and how we extended CLIPS to deal with temporal inferences. We also review(More)
1. 5'(Isobutylthio)-adenosine (SIBA) and its analogs, at 100 microM, inhibited [3H]N-methyl-scopolamine binding to homogenates of whole brain and cortex (mainly M1 subtype receptors) by 11-30% and to cerebellum (mainly M2 subtype receptors) by 20-39%. 2. At 0.01-1.0 microM, stimulation of [3H]QNB and NMS-inaccessible [3H]QNB binding was observed, with the(More)
