Abstract

This paper describes the design, development and testing of a pre-hospital documentation and patient monitoring application called iRevive. The application utilizes a sensor gateway and data mediator to enable semantic interoperability with a wide variety of medical devices and applications. Initial test results indicate that complete and consistent pre-hospital Electronic Medical Records (EMR) can be semantically exchanged with two heterogeneous, in-hospital IT applications

Keywords: Electronic Medical Records, Interoperability, Clinical Documentation, Emergency Medical Response, Trauma, Standards, Data mediation
