abstract

  • The Integrated Academic Information Management System (IAIMS) concept is about sharing resources and information, and about improving the decision-making ability of health care professionals by integrating information. At Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, the IAIMS project has established an information architecture based on common, shared computing and networking resources. The institutional computing culture has been changed with increased sharing of information and, consequently, improved quality of information. Several classes of information in the areas of clinical, scholarly, administrative, basic research, and core resources have been identified for better understanding of information responsibility. Technical problems such as heterogeneity on workstation platforms and lack of universal syntactic and semantic standards for health care information exchange still impede inter-institutional sharing of information.
