Computers, evidence based medicine and the problem oriented medical record
After blogging about evidence based medicine (EBM) and the problem oriented medical record (POMR) recently I wondered what Lawrence Weed, originator of the POMR, had been up to lately. It turns out he founded Problem-Knowledge Couplers, the PKC Corporation. They have developed software for medical record keeping and decision support. Concerning EBM and the POMR I opined that we haven’t done a very good job at either. It looks like these folks are on to something that may help us do better at both. Here’s an article about Lawrence Weed in Healthcare Informatics.
Disclosure: I have no interest in PKC.
