This document outlines the software requirements for an electronic medical record (EMR) data analysis clinical decision support system. It will cover the overall description of the system, specific requirements as well as modeling requirements, diagrams and a description of a prototype to be built to demonstrate the system‟s functionality.
This document is intended to inform those who have a vested interest in the EMR data analysis clinical support system of its purpose and design. It should be useful to the customer(s) as well as any members of a software development team who are tasked to build and/or maintain the system itself. Users of the system need not concern themselves with the information in this document unless they desire a deeper understanding of the system‟s architecture. However, this document does include a prototype, which demonstrates how the final system will look and function.
The software system of which this document concerns is an EMR data analysis-based clinical decision support system (CDSS). The system will be a software package that will be installed on a server machine and be accessible from any internet-enabled client machine in order to better assist medical personnel in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. It is intended to focus on patients exhibiting symptoms of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a common bacteria which has become resistant to typically prescribed drugs. The system will provide access to patient data contained in an EMR such as symptoms, medical history and current prescriptions. The system will then evaluate known data about a patient and use it to suggest a case-specific treatment plan. The system will receive data from remote databases including relevant clinical trials that can be prescribed and medical best practice guidelines to be followed. Treatment will then be monitored. The system will improve the quality of medical care
