   Abstract

Hospital medical records systems rely on rules engines to support a clean separation between the software system (developed by engineers) and the medical logic (developed by medical informatics staff in conjunction with physicians). The medical rules need to be separately maintainable, and to run in a safe environment which is not affected by changes to the system. Examples of the types of systems which benefit from this type of rules engine: clinical decision support systems, medical guidelines systems, and population management systems. In this presentation we will look at a specific clinical decision support system, which is deployed in 125 US hospitals and health organizations including Memorial Sloan Kettering, New York Presbyterian, Johns Hopkins and the National Institute of Health. It uses rules written in the Health Level 7 standard Arden Syntax, and compiles those to Lisp to run in an embedded Lisp interpreter. We’ll include a short demonstration of the rules development environment and the medical record software in action. The presentation will cover the various ways rules are invoked, and some lessons learned from years of use by customers.
