Aim(ing) for the Record
The paper describes how the results of the CHIC (Community Health Information Classification and Coding) Project of the AIM (Advanced Informatics in Medicine) Programme have been used to produce the Prototype Personal Health Summary. This summaries a patients general and clinical details into two logical databases. The first — the Resident Population Index (RPI) records administrative data for a patient and the second — the Personal Health Summary (PHS) records clinical data in the format suggested by the CHIC Project. The two databases can be used in conjunction by a clinician to provide an individual clinical summary, or in an aggregated annonymised format for use by epidemiologists and managers.
