Knowledge integration: insight through the E-portal



Knowledge integration: insight through the E-portal



Journal of Healthcare Information Management 15(1): 13-24



Data become information when they can be summarized and organized into logical patterns; information becomes knowledge when it can be manipulated for actionable decision making; knowledge becomes insight when contextually relevant and temporarily appropriate. This article describes how information technology can now be used to provide clinicians with access to both insight and information that is context- and event-sensitive. Collaboration between the American College of Physicians, medical knowledge experts, Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), and shared medical systems for framework and infrastructure combine to create the ideal environment of complementary and synergistic competencies. This article describes the research that is under way at OHSU to determine how to deploy medical knowledge derived from these sources and integrate it into the clinical workflow; it also examines a vision of how medical knowledge can be integrated in the future.
