Developing and Implementing the Problem List

Part of the Computers in Health Care book series (HI)

Abstract

The Problem List software described in this chapter was developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at the Salt Lake City VA Information Resources Management Field Office (IRMFO). The team of developers and clinicians included members of the VA’s Clinical Application Requirements Group (CARG) and the Problem List Expert Panel (EP), a multisite advisory panel of VA clinicians appointed by the CARG. The Problem List is currently in release 2.0 (September 1994) and is presently installed in 145 clinical VA sites (April 1996).
