MeRLin (Medical Record TimeLine): Improving EHR Clinical Chart Review Through Effective Visualization of Longitudinal Medical Record Data

February 19, 2017 — 08:00AM EST - 04:30PM EST
Hyatt Regency Orlando
Session ID: 
PSP2

Description

Exhaustive lists of textual EHR documents are inefficient and cognitively burdensome. We report our experience piloting a Medical Record timeLine (MeRLin) that aggregates and filters EHR-derived events in real time into an interactive, single-screen visualization of the longitudinal medical record to improve clinical chart review and decision making.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define the common methods for visual display of textual/report-based EHR data and their limitations
  • Learn alternative visual display methods for longitudinal EHR data, specifically as implemented in novel MeRLin timeline tool
  • Outline challenges with longitudinal clinical data visualization
