Interoperability among Medical Systems

Speaker:  Wajahat Ali Khan – Derby, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Information Systems, Search, Information Retrieval, Database Systems, Data Mining, Data Science


Over the last decade, rapid digitization in the field of healthcare information management, has compounded the problem of Heterogeneity, through the development of a plethora of medical software, devices, and standards. As a consequence, while the quantity of healthcare data has undergone rapid expansion the quality of care is still lacking. This has resulted in an overall increase in the cost of diagnostics, treatment and follow-up. In particular, medical data interoperability has proved to be a difficult obstacle, in moving towards an intelligent medical platform. Using a mediation based semantic reconciliation strategy, the Ubiquitous Health Platform (UHP) provides a solution to this problem. This platform, in turn, uses a multi-dimensional data container, in a semi-structured data storage and processing engine; The Ubiquitous Health Profile (UHPr). With the ability to extract semantic value from a large volume of patient data, produced by a variety of data sources, at variable rates and conforming to different abstraction levels, the UHPr provides an intelligent, patient-oriented, healthcare data management solution. Additionally, the UHP and UHPr is able to create and share, a comprehensive digital persona of patients, suffering from cardiovascular disease, using medical data from heterogeneous EMR, PHR (Medical IoT), and EHR sources.
