Advanced Clinical Notification System

In this paper, we describe the notification services, architecture, implementation, and integration of two independent systems, which together form a novel and complex clinical event communication system. While our clinical notifications are delivered over the Nextel cellular network to the Blackberry 7510 device, our system is capable of delivering hl7-xml notifications across a heterogeneous set of mobile gateways supporting mobile devices, pagers, instant messaging and email. Notifications are driven by provider role and hospital policy. Notifications are also driven by policy when message delivery fails.
