EMR Summary Management Software

Executive Summary

We had built an EMR (Electronic Medical Records) software which was deployed as a windows-based desktop application for our client. The need was to build a public website which would be used by patients of our clients to :

• View their clinical summaries

• Download the summaries

• Submit requests to the EMR to send these summaries to other organizations.

For security reasons, patients had to be restricted from connecting directly to the backend of the EMR. Therefore, a process was developed by which summaries of patient records could be pushed to a third party (called Microsoft HealthVault) from the EMR.

The web application needed to have 2 high level components :

Provision to connect to HealthVault to

a. Authenticate User (user id and password)

b. Get Clinical Summaries

Provision to connect to backend of EMR database to

a. Validate that the user is authorized to use the website

b. Get details for submitting request for transmitting records to another organization.

c. Manage audit log
