PEN&PAD: A Multi-Lingual Patient Care Workstation based on a Unified Representation of the Medical Record and Medical Terminology
PEN&PAD is prototype patient care workstation developed using a process of user centred design. Our goal is a radically improved human computer environment for doctors and other clinicians which will be useful and usable in routine patient care. PEN&PAD is a complete clinical record system based on the ideas described elsewhere in this conference . It uses a unified knowledge based representation of the medical record and medical terminology, Structured Meta Knowledge (SMK) .
