  The input data type field 333 stores a data type for defining the link destination of the ID stored in the input data ID field 332. For example, in the case of “blood test”, a test value ID for uniquely identifying a patient test value is stored, and in the case of “image test”, an image ID for uniquely identifying a patient image is stored. If “new marker test”, the measurement value ID for uniquely identifying the measurement value of the patient of the new marker test is stored.

  As described above, the input data table 330 is stored in the evidence number. The records stored in the evidence data table 310 and the medical information table 300 are associated via the field 331.

<Inspection information database>
Below, the table structure which comprises the test | inspection information database 116 is demonstrated. The examination information database 116 stores detailed information of evidence data related to medical care, and includes an examination value table 400, an examination item master table 410, a measurement value table 420, a measurement item master table 430, and an image table 440. .

  FIG. 4A shows the data structure of the inspection value table 400. FIG. 4B shows the data structure of the inspection item master table 410. FIG. 4C shows the data structure of the measurement value table 420. FIG. 4D shows the data structure of the measurement item master table 430. FIG. 4E shows the data structure of the image table 440.

<Inspection value table 400>
The test value table 400 (FIG. 4A) is a table for storing the contents of the “blood test” data, and stores one test value in one record. The table includes an examination value ID field 401, a patient ID field 402, an examination result date / time field 403, an item code field 404, and a value field 405. Records in the inspection value table 400 are associated with the inspection item master table 410 (FIG. 4B) using the item code as key information.

<Inspection item master table 410>
The test item master table 410 (FIG. 4B) is an item master table of “blood test”, and includes an item code field 411, an item name field 412, and a unit name field 413.

<Measured value table 420>
The measurement value table 420 (FIG. 4C) is a table for storing the contents of the “new marker test” data, and stores one measurement value in one record. The measurement value table 420 has the same data structure as the inspection value table 400. The measurement value table 420 includes a measurement value ID field 421, a patient ID field 422, a measurement result date / time field 423, an item code field 424, and a value field 425.

<Measurement item master table 430>
The measurement item master table 430 (FIG. 4D) has the same data structure as the inspection item master table 410. The measurement item master table 430 includes an item code field 431, an item name field 432, and a unit name field 433. The measurement item master table 430 includes a field for storing measurement item registration information (for example, a registration date field 434) in addition to the fields constituting the inspection item master 410, so that item version management can be performed. You may do it.

  As described above, in this embodiment, the test information database 116 separately manages the contents of input data for “blood test” and “new marker test”, and the input data table 330 (FIG. 3D) includes only link information. A configuration that centrally manages the system is adopted. By adopting this method, both test values measured in normal operations and test values newly developed for research purposes can be stored as evidence data. Therefore, it becomes possible to analyze the effectiveness of the newly developed inspection method.

<Image table 440>
The image table 440 (FIG. 4E) stores an image ID field 441 that stores an identifier for identifying an image, a patient ID field 442 that stores a patient identifier, an image acquisition date field 443 that stores the date and time when the image was acquired, and an item code. An item code field 444 for storing images and an image field 445 for storing images.

<Data input operation example according to usage>
Next, processing operations executed in the system when the image interpretation doctor inputs data to the medical support system according to the embodiment will be described. System-side processing is provided through data processing of a program executed on the CPU 114. FIG. 5 shows an example of a flowchart to be executed.

(Step S500)
This system accepts a login input to the login screen through an operation input by the operator on the terminal 104.

(Step S501)
Next, the present system accepts the patient's selection through the operator's operation input to the terminal 104. Specifically, the selection of the patient identifier is accepted through the selection operation of one patient on the patient selection screen.

(Step S502)
Next, the medical information storage means 106 is a record corresponding to the patient acquired in step S501, and the workflow No. currently in progress. Is identified from the workflow information table 200 (FIG. 2A). Here, the current workflow No. For example, there is a method of identifying a record in which the value of the workflow end date / time field 205 is not registered. Further, for example, a method may be used in which all records corresponding to the patient acquired in step S501 are extracted from the workflow information table 200 and displayed on the workflow selection screen, and one operator is designated and input one workflow.

(Step S503)
The medical information storage unit 106 uses the workflow No. identified in step S502. Is used to obtain the corresponding workflow step information from the workflow step information table 210 (FIG. 2B).

(Step S504)
The medical information storage means 106 determines the current workflow step No. from the department information of the login information acquired in step S500. Identify Here, the “current workflow step” represents a workflow step currently being executed in the workflow.

  For identification of the current workflow step, for example, the medical information storage unit 106 refers to the workflow step execution scheduled department ID field 213 and the workflow step execution flag field 216 in the record acquired in step S502, and the department of the login person and the corresponding department Workflow step No. that has not been executed in the previous step. Current workflow step No. It can be identified by extracting as. When all the steps of the corresponding department have been executed, the final step No. Current workflow step No. And

(Step S505)
The workflow output unit 118 sets and displays each workflow step information acquired in step S503 on the workflow step execution screen 600 shown in FIG. 6A. This workflow step execution screen 600 is displayed on the interface 111 (FIG. 1).

  The workflow step execution screen 600 (FIG. 6A) includes, for example, a workflow step selection area 601, a login information display area 602, a judgment sentence input / output area 603, an evidence data display area 604, a medical information registration button 605, a medical assistance button group 606, and a workflow. A step type input area 607 is included.

  The workflow step selection area 601 includes a parent workflow step No. in the workflow step information table 210 (FIG. 2B). Based on the information in the field 219, the workflow steps from the workflow start step to the current step are displayed in a flow format.

  For example, in the case of the workflow step information table 210 (FIG. 2B), the workflow step No. 2 and No. The workflow step No. 3 is the parent workflow step no. Are both “1”. Therefore, the workflow step No. 2 and No. The workflow steps No. 3 are all workflow step numbers. Displayed in association with one workflow step. In addition, workflow step No. The workflow step No. 4 is the parent workflow step No. 4. Is “3”, the workflow step No. 3 connected to the workflow step.

  Such a connection between the workflow steps is associated with the child workflow step No. This can also be realized in the same manner.

  In this way, the workflow step selection area 601 (FIG. 6A) displays the workflow information and the workflow step information obtained by connecting the request source workflow step and the request destination workflow step to each other.

  The login information display area 602 is an area for displaying operator information that is currently logged in to the system. The judgment sentence input / output area 603 is an area for displaying the contents input and output in text format by the medical staff. The evidence data display area 604 is an area for displaying evidence data. The medical information registration button 605 is a button for registering data obtained by combining evidence data and a text sentence in the medical information database 105 by an operator's click operation.

  The medical assistance button group 606 is a button used by the medical staff to call up the function of the evidence data processing means 115 that performs data processing such as image processing and test value processing for medical treatment of the patient. The medical assistance button group 606 may be set to selectable / impossible from the job type information of the login information acquired in step S500.

  In the present embodiment, the current workflow step identified in step S504 is highlighted in the workflow step selection area 601, for example. In each workflow step, information that indicates the progress status of the workflow is displayed. In the case of FIG. 6A, for example, the display format is such that the completion / incompleteness is known, such as changing the display color according to the contents of the workflow step execution flag field 216 (FIG. 2B). For the completed workflow step, the contents of the workflow step execution date / time field 214 (FIG. 2B) and the workflow step executor ID field 215 (FIG. 2B) are displayed.

(Step S509)
In this embodiment, it is assumed that the interpretation doctor A starts interpretation work and registers medical information at this stage. Interpreting doctor A performs an interpretation operation by the processing (described later) in steps S701 to S712 in FIG. When the interpretation work is completed, the current workflow step No. identified by the medical information storage unit 106 in step S504 is displayed. In association with the medical information, the medical information displayed on the screen is registered in the medical information database 105 (FIG. 1B).

  Hereinafter, the processing operation executed in the system when the doctor A interprets medical information in the system will be described. The processing on the system side is also provided through data processing of a program executed on the CPU 114.

  The interpreting doctor A who uses this system performs interpretation while referring to the medical information in the workflow steps of the laboratory technician A and CT engineer A in the workflow step of the interpretation work, and is executing the referred medical information and the interpretation result. Save it in association with the workflow step.

(Step S701)
FIG. 7 shows details of the processing operation executed in step S509. The operator performs an input for selecting the workflow step information of the laboratory technician A through the operation on the terminal 104. At this time, the workflow input unit 107 receives an input for selecting the workflow step information from the medical information database 105.

(Step S702)
The medical information output unit 109 searches the medical information database 105 for medical information associated with the selected workflow step (workflow step No. 2) of the laboratory technician A, and displays it on the workflow step execution screen 600. In the present embodiment, the evidence No. acquired by laboratory technician A is shown. Assume that one test value graph is registered in the medical information.

(Step S703)
Interpretation doctor A specifies the displayed examination value graph as data to be processed through an operation on terminal 104.

(Step S704)
The present system displays an inspection value graph screen 610 (FIG. 6B) on the screen.

(Step S705)
Interpretation doctor A inputs data processing such as selection of examination items to be displayed on examination value graph screen 610, setting of a graph format, extraction of a point of interest and data fluctuation, through operation on terminal 104. Here, it is assumed that image interpretation doctor A operates the “AFP extraction” button to input selective extraction of AFP values. At this time, the operation of the “AFP extraction” button is given to the evidence data processing means 115. In this case, the evidence data processing means 115 extracts the AFP value selected by the operator from the AFP data in the inspection value graph. In FIG. 6B, the selected AFP data is shown by enlarging the dots indicating the data of the two selected points.

(Step S706)
The evidence data processing unit 115 acquires the AFP value and date extracted in step S705 as evidence data together with the displayed examination value graph. By this acquisition process, evidence data is generated.

(Step S707)
The medical information output unit 109 generates evidence data display data “graph icon file 1” and “20091001, AFP: 17.1, 20010106, AFP: 17.3” from the acquired data, and the evidence data display area 604. Is displayed in the first line (FIG. 6C).

(Step S708)
Interpreting doctor A who is an operator inputs a judgment sentence “no AFP fluctuation” related to the data processing of the examination value graph to judgment sentence input / output area 603 through operation of terminal 104. The input information accepting unit 108 accepts this input.

(Step S709)
The system determines whether or not the operator performs another data process. If another data process is performed, the system returns to step S701 and repeats the process. In the case of the present embodiment, it is assumed that the interpreting doctor A who is an operator continues the processing on the CT image captured in the workflow step of the CT engineer A.

  In this case, the workflow input unit 107 receives an input for selecting the workflow step (workflow step No. 3) of the CT engineer A.

  Thereafter, in step S702, image data (evidence No. 2) is acquired and displayed on the screen. In the next step S703, the displayed image data is specified as processing target data. In step S704, the image processing screen 800 shown in FIG. 8A is displayed on the screen. In the next step S705, the image interpretation doctor A extracts a tumor region from the CT image. Details of processing on the image processing screen 800 will be described later. In step S <b> 706, the image processing history and the input data “image ID <b> 1” from the image processing screen 800 to the calculation of the volume of the tumor region through region extraction are acquired. In step S707, the display data “image icon file 1” and “# 1: 10 mm # 2: 15 mm” of the evidence data are generated using the information of the image processing history and displayed in the evidence data display area 604 (FIG. 8B). In step S <b> 708, the operator inputs a determination sentence related to image processing “# 1: Nodal of 10 mm in S <b> 7 and # 2: 15 mm in S <b> 6” into the determination sentence input / output area 603. The input information accepting unit 108 accepts this input.

(Step S710)
If it is determined in step S709 that the operator does not perform additional processing, the system adds a determination sentence that is not for each evidence data, for example, “highly differentiated HCC is suspected” to the determination sentence input / output area 603 as necessary. input. The input information receiving means 108 receives this input.

(Step S711)
The interpreting doctor A who is an operator selects “CT examination” in the workflow step type input area 607 and selects the medical information registration button 605 as necessary. In the case of the present embodiment, interpretation doctor A selects the workflow step type at the time of registration, but may automatically reflect the contents set at the time of inputting the request destination at the time of generating the workflow step described later.

(Step S712)
When the medical information registration button 605 is selected, the medical information storage unit 106 acquires the current date and time from, for example, hardware in which a medical assistance system is installed. In addition, the medical information storage unit 106 acquires, from the medical information database 105, for example, the medical staff information “radiographer A” of the login person. The medical information storage means 106 stores the text sentence in the judgment sentence input / output area 603, the history of processing extracted by the evidence data processing means 115 and the input data, the patient identifier selected in step S501, the date and time, the medical worker information, and the workflow step. The type, the workflow step execution flag “true”, and the workflow step number are registered in each table of the medical information database 105 described above. In the case of this embodiment, the evidence number corresponding to the test value graph subjected to the data processing is shown. 3 corresponds to the evidence No. corresponding to the image processed data. 4 are registered respectively.

  In the judgment sentence input / output area 603 in this embodiment, the text sentence input / output in step S708 and step S710 is handled as one data, but the judgment sentence input / output area 603 is used as a judgment sentence for each evidence data. The input / output areas (the judgment sentence area of the inspection value graph, the judgment sentence area of the image processing) and the input / output areas of judgment sentences related to all evidence data are configured separately, and in step S712, tags are used to distinguish them. Each judgment sentence may be registered separately by adding information or the like. Moreover, about the judgment sentence for every evidence data, you may give link information with evidence data.

<Summary 1>
As described above, this system displays evidence data corresponding to a workflow step (medical related work) executed before the current workflow step, executes data processing, and the data is processed in the current workflow step. The judgment sentence based on the evidence data is received, and the judgment sentence and the evidence data displayed when the judgment sentence is inputted are automatically associated with the current workflow step and registered.

  By adopting this mechanism, it is possible to store the process of how the medical staff sees what data and how to make a decision in each workflow step in association with each workflow step. As a result, it is possible to support the medical practice while utilizing the tacit knowledge of each medical worker along the workflow.

  Furthermore, the system also stores evidence data processing history based on the workflow steps. For this reason, it is possible to accumulate the correspondence between the medical worker's judgment performed in each workflow step and the data processing history.

<About workflow step generation and workflow end>
The generation of the workflow step and the end of the workflow will be described with reference to FIG. The screen shown in FIG. 9 includes a request destination workflow step type input area 900, a transmission sentence input area 901 for inputting a transmission sentence, a next workflow step setting button 902, a scheduled date input area, an attached file area, a reply flag input area, and the like. It is shown. When the operator presses the next workflow step setting button 902 in a state where the requested workflow type, transmission sentence, and scheduled date are input, the input information is reflected in the workflow step display map 903.

  The workflow step request input means 117 receives these inputs. The transmitted message input in the transmitted message input area 901 is displayed on the transmitted message display unit 904 in the workflow step display map 903 by the medical information output means 109.

  Furthermore, the workflow request input means 117 receives a new workflow step No. via the medical information storage means 106. Are assigned to the requested execution department, workflow step type, and child workflow step No. from the request destination input in the request destination input area 901. To get. Requested current work step No. To the parent workflow step No. Is acquired, a new record is stored in the workflow step information table 210 of the medical information database 105. It is also possible to send an attached file and attach a reply flag.

<Summary 2>
As described above, the system can generate workflow step information by receiving input of a request destination, a scheduled date, a comment, and the like. Thereby, this system can manage a workflow step efficiently. Further, the system displays the input request destination, scheduled date, and comment on the workflow step display map 903, so that the operator can easily grasp the workflow. Further, as shown in FIG. 1A, the above-described request input may operate separately using the electronic medical record system 102 and in cooperation with ordering information managed by the electronic medical record system.

<Input workflow name>
As described above, in the medical assistance system 101, the workflow name is stored in the workflow name field 203 of the workflow information table 200 (FIG. 2A). Assigning an appropriate name to the workflow name is important from two aspects of diagnosis support and data analysis.

  First, the importance from the aspect of diagnosis support will be explained. In actual operation, it is assumed that the workflow is not named until the diagnosis is confirmed or the treatment policy is determined. In this case, a workflow name is input for an unfinished workflow at a timing when diagnosis is confirmed or a treatment policy is determined. The reason why the operation without input is assumed is that even if the workflow name is input once, the optimal workflow name may change as the medical treatment progresses.

  Next, the importance from the aspect of data analysis will be explained. In the data analysis, it is assumed that the workflow information accumulated in the medical information database 105 is grouped based on the workflow name and a statistical method such as a group relation test is used. For this reason, it is important that an appropriate workflow name is input.

  Some diseases have a standard medical process, such as a clinical path. For such diseases, a standard workflow is created in advance to determine the diagnosis and treatment policy. By applying the standard workflow to the patient who is doing it, it becomes easy to provide the patient with a standardized and uniform medical practice.

  For the standard workflow, it is desirable to input a workflow name using a disease name or treatment name such as “liver tumor (RFA)”. When starting the standard workflow, the standard workflow name is entered in the workflow name field 203.

  On the other hand, for diseases that do not have a standard medical process such as clinical path, or for diseases for which diagnosis has not yet been confirmed, the standard workflow can be applied at the start of the workflow, or an appropriate workflow name can be entered. Is difficult. Therefore, it is assumed that the workflow is started in a state where a temporary workflow name is input or the workflow name is not set, and the workflow name is input based on the judgment of the attending physician at the timing when the diagnosis and treatment policy are determined.

  Note that what kind of workflow name is input for the workflow depends on the operation of the hospital. However, if the disease name or treatment name is used as the workflow name, it becomes easy to grasp the contents of the workflow.

<System configuration 1 of workflow name processing means>
FIG. 10 shows one configuration example of the workflow name processing means 180. The workflow name processing unit 180 includes a current workflow acquisition unit 1000, a similar workflow display unit 1001, a selected workflow reception unit 1002, and a workflow name assignment unit 1003. In the case of this embodiment, the workflow name processing means 180 and its constituent functions are realized through a program executed on a computer.

  Here, the “current workflow” represents a workflow that is currently being executed. The current workflow acquisition unit 1000 is a unit that acquires information on the currently executed workflow. The similar workflow display unit 1001 is a unit that receives and displays a workflow similar to the workflow acquired by the current workflow acquisition unit 1000 from the similar case search unit 160. The selected workflow receiving unit 1002 is a unit that receives a workflow selected by the user from the workflows displayed on the similar workflow display unit 1001. The workflow name assigning unit 1003 is a unit that inputs the workflow name of the workflow selected by the user as the workflow name of the current workflow.

  With this system configuration, a workflow name similar to the current workflow can be presented to the user as a workflow name candidate for the current workflow. The user inputs the workflow name of the execution workflow with reference to the displayed workflow name candidates. With this workflow name input support function, the user can easily input an appropriate workflow name.

<Example 1 of workflow name input support>
Next, the processing operation of the workflow name processing unit 180 will be described. FIG. 11 shows an outline of the processing operation. When the workflow name processing unit 180 receives the execution event of the workflow step, the workflow name processing unit 180 starts the processing flow shown in FIG.

(Step S1100)
The current workflow acquisition unit 1000 acquires a current workflow record from the workflow information table 200 (FIG. 2A).

(Step S1101)
The current workflow acquisition unit 1000 passes the acquired workflow information of the current workflow to the similar case search unit 160 as a search query.

(Step S1102)
The similar case search unit 160 extracts a workflow similar to the current workflow from the workflow information table 200. In this embodiment, workflow step information is used to determine the similarity between workflows. Specifically, the similarity using text data such as the judgment sentence field 305 (FIG. 3A), the similarity using numerical data such as the value field 405 (FIG. 4A), the workflow step executor ID field 215 ( Similarity using category data as shown in FIG. 2B) is used. Note that the similarity may be determined by combining a plurality of similarities described above.

(Step S1103)
The similar workflow display unit 1001 receives the extracted workflow and presents it to the user in a list format, for example.

(Step S1104)
The similar workflow display unit 1001 determines whether or not there is an instruction input to adopt the workflow name of the similar workflow as the workflow name of the current workflow. Here, when a positive determination result is obtained, the similar workflow display unit 1001 proceeds to step S1105. On the other hand, when a negative determination result is obtained, the similar workflow display unit 1001 skips step S1105 and ends the process.

(Step S1105)
If a positive result is obtained in step S1104, the selected workflow receiving unit 1002 gives the workflow name of the workflow selected in the similar workflow list to the workflow name assigning unit 1003. The workflow name assigning unit 1003 inputs the notified workflow name to the workflow information table 210 as the workflow name of the current workflow.

  FIG. 12 shows a display screen example. FIG. 12 shows a workflow step execution screen 600. In the workflow step selection area 601, a workflow whose workflow name display 1200 is “untitled” is displayed as the current workflow. In the case of FIG. 12, four workflow steps are already associated with the current workflow. In addition, judgment text and evidence data are input to the judgment text input / output area 603 and evidence data display area 604 on the same screen as shown in the figure.

  When the medical information registration button 605 is selected by a user operation input, steps S1100 to S1103 shown in FIG. 11 are executed in order, and a similar workflow screen 1201 is presented to the user. As shown in FIG. 12, the similar workflow screen 1201 may be displayed so as to overlap the workflow step execution screen 600 or may be displayed side by side with the workflow step execution screen 600.

  It is assumed that the similar workflow screen 1201 includes a similar workflow list 1202, for example. In the similar workflow list 1202, all workflows whose calculated similarity exceeds a predetermined threshold are displayed as similar workflow candidates. However, in the similar workflow list 1202, only the workflow having the highest calculated similarity may be displayed as a similar workflow candidate.

  In the case of FIG. 12, the workflow name and the similarity are displayed in the similar workflow list 1202 for each workflow. When the user selects the workflow name registration button 1203 on the similar workflow list 1202 screen, steps S1104 to S1105 shown in FIG. 11 are executed, and the current workflow name is updated.

<Summary 3>
With the processing flow and screen example described above, each time a workflow step that is a component of a workflow is executed, a candidate for a workflow name similar to the current workflow is presented to the user. The user can enter a workflow name through selection of any of the presented workflow names. With this function, it becomes easy to re-evaluate the entire workflow at the timing when the medical care process proceeds, that is, when the workflow step that is a component of the workflow is executed.

  Note that the similar workflow screen 1201 may be automatically displayed only when the registered workflow name and the workflow name with high similarity searched in the background do not match.

<System configuration 2 of workflow name input means>
FIG. 13 shows another configuration example of the workflow name processing means 180. The workflow name processing unit 180 here includes a similar workflow display condition storage unit 1300 in addition to the apparatus configuration shown in FIG.

  The similar workflow display unit 1001 in this embodiment determines whether to display a similar workflow according to the display conditions stored in the similar workflow display condition storage unit 1300.

  FIG. 14 shows an example of a table structure stored in the similar workflow display condition storage unit 1300. The similar workflow display condition table 1400 includes a condition ID field 1401, a user ID field 1402, an operation flag field 1403 when no workflow name is assigned, an operation flag field 1404 when a workflow name does not match, and an inter-workflow similarity threshold field 1405.

  The value of the user ID 1402 is used for collation with the value of the attending physician ID field 206 shown in FIG. 2, and the matching record becomes a display candidate. The setting of the operation flag field 1403 when the workflow name is not assigned means “1” means that the similar workflow screen 1201 is presented to the user only when the workflow name display 1200 is “unset name”. On the other hand, when the setting of the operation flag field 1403 when the workflow name is not assigned is “0”, it means that the display of the similar workflow screen 1201 does not depend on the display content of the workflow name display 1200.

  The setting of the operation flag field 1404 when the workflow name does not match is “1” means that the similar workflow screen 1201 is presented to the user only when the workflow names of the similar workflow and the similar workflow are different. On the other hand, the setting of the workflow name mismatch operation flag field 1404 “0” means that the similar workflow screen 1201 is always presented to the user.

  A numerical value of 0 to 1 is input to the inter-workflow similarity threshold field 1405. The input numerical value gives a threshold value for determining a workflow to be displayed as a similar candidate on the similar workflow screen 1201.

<Summary 4>
As described above, by preparing the similar workflow display condition storage unit 1300, it is possible to control the frequency of presenting a list of similar workflows to the user and the number of workflows presented as similar workflows. As a result, workflow name input support can be performed more efficiently.
