Re: Better search is valuable. Better design could minimize the need for better search.
Have you seen an electronic health records product that achieves the design goals you describe? Or comes close?

Better search is valuable. Better design could minimize the need for better search.
I am guessing that this works best in HIE connected systems where data from disparate systems is avaiilable, but not in one place. The ability to find the pertinent documents / data without having to open every note or sift through lists of generic labels to identify what you want would be valuable. On the small scale better designed summary pages, labels on notes, and previews of documents without having to open them would go a long way to make individual products more functional.

What The Doctor Ordered
Interesting story, Dave. This started with a radiologist trying to find a better way-- instead of someone selling to a radiologist. I imagine few doctors can carve out the bandwidth to pursue projects like these.

Anything else like this?
I usually make a point of not being easily impressed, but this approach makes a lot of sense to me.

Have you seen other technologies that layer on top of EHR and provide this kind of search and discovery capability?

The Agile Archive
When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
