Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Technical Field
  • The present invention relates to an electronic storage and retrieval system and method for remotely inputting data and records and for generating reports; specifically, an electronic storage and retrieval system and method for facilitating interactive computer and dictation input of data and records and to automatically generate reports.
  • 2. Discussion of Related Art
  • It has been the practice of professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, and engineers to personally record pertinent information on a subject patient, client, or matter so that professional services performed and data pertinent to the subject are documented. The documented information can be in many different forms, such as a patient database with patient demographic and clinical data, an engineer's report on the structural conditions of a building, or an invoice for professional services performed. In many instances, the professional memorializes the pertinent data contemporaneously as services are performed, such as by handwritten notes or by dictation into a voice recorder, and the information is subsequently gathered for an office staff personnel to enter into a report. Many reports are standardized as forms and the gathered information is filled into the form for efficient reporting. For example, in the case of a physician examining a patient, clinical information for a patient is developed during discussions with and the physical examination of a patient. The physician makes dictation or writes the clinical information observed during the examination and the forms and notes are typically later entered by a medical staff in the physician's office. Likewise, an engineer may be inspecting a building and dictates his observations on the conditions of the building and a building inspection report can be generated by filling in a form-like report with standard pre-filled text on general building condition, supplemented by contemporaneous information using the recorded dictation.
  • In the case of patient information and report, a patient is typically required to complete a questionnaire which discloses personal information about a patient, including background medical information and pre-existing medical conditions. The questionnaire may also establish a patient's current medical condition. A patient's history file is opened and contains the completed questionnaire along with other documents.
  • As part of the physical examination, the physician makes a determination as to the medical condition of a patient and this is generally referred to as the patient diagnosis. Also, the physician makes a determination as to how a diagnosed medical condition is to be treated medically and this is generally referred to as a patient treatment plan. The information derived from the examination is also referred to as clinical information.
  • When a patient is examined by a physician, the results of the physical examination or clinical information are typically recorded by the physician entering the information manually onto a form which is then placed in the patient's history file. Also, it is common practice for the healthcare professional to make hand notes during the patient's physical examination. The hand notes are later used by the physician for personally dictating a patient's report. The dictation is then transcribed, reviewed and signed by the physician who conducted the patient's physical examination.
  • The practice of dictating and transcribing is widely used to record information in the medical and other fields. Physicians have been increasingly burdened by the need to document every encounter with patients. Physicians must record information about each patient's office visit, diagnosis, suggested treatment and prescription given. In addition to recording patient's information, physicians must fill out forms for submission to insurance companies and provide information to regulatory agencies. Physicians spend a significant portion of their work day gathering and dictating the needed information for each record or form. Further, a physician must maintain a staff to transcribe the information into reports and fill out required forms.
  • Additionally, as many medical offices operating under health maintenance organization (HMO) oversight are required to audit the examination notes of medical professionals for consistency and trends in diagnosis and treatment, the lack of computerized databases for monitoring and updating clinical examination data and the time consuming process of re-transcribing and editing paper charts into a computer database can complicate this auditing process.
  • There are a number of medical history documentation systems known in the art which are intended to more efficiently and effectively gather and/or document medical information of a patient. Some examples of medical documentation systems are provided below.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 4,428,733 discloses an information gathering system used for obtaining medical information from a patient. The system has one or more question sheets bearing a set of questions, usually medical questions written in the language of the patient. A separate answer sheet is provided, upon which the patient provides answers the questions. The answer sheet has information concerning each possible answer. A mechanism is preferably provided for positioning and holding the answer sheet in a predetermined position relative to the question sheets to enable the patient to see the information on the answer sheet as well as the questions.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 3,913,118 discloses a process and apparatus for accurately recording medical and personal information obtained from a medical patient or a prescription customer. This process and apparatus expedited accounting and bookkeeping procedures related to the medical treatment or transcription services furnished the patient or customer. A transparent matrix has pre-printed thereon in permanent ink portion of a form for recording information to be submitted for payment to a medical program for professional services rendered to the patient or member of the program. The matrix also includes a means forming a pocket thereon for receiving and holding an identification card or other information bearing form, such as a prescription order or the like.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 4,991,091 discloses a self-contained apparatus used personally by a physician during patient examination. The apparatus is battery operated and can be programmed to alter or modify examination information or produce a permanent record of examination results. The apparatus includes a pen board which includes microprocessor based controller with internal memory having prestored thereon sets of specific examination indicia which are displayed by liquid crystal displays (“LCDs”). The patient's name is displayed on an LCD. Associated with the specific examination indicia are one or more light emitting diodes (“LEDs”) and corresponding bar codes which represent permanently pre-printed indicia representations.
  • General information diagnosis categories are identified by suitable words such as “Vital Signs”. Also, LEDs and bar codes are provided for general examination and treatment categories such as, for example, “Chemistry Profile.” The bar codes are used with a light pen for optically identifying the corresponding category and the LED adjacent to each category indicia are illuminated for indicating the category selected by the physician. The controller includes suitable memory for storing patient examination information, for controlled programming of the operating panel and for down loading data to a central computer. A light pen provides input to a microcontroller to manipulate scanning in one or more bar code panels. The concept is based on the examining physician personally using the pen board, light pen and microprocessor during the examination procedure to record medical information.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,267,155 describes a document generation system which automates the documentation process in the medical field. The system provides a computer-based documentation system incorporating a retrievable database with a menu driver and graphic window environment. The documentation system utilizes previously defined document templates or “boiler-plates” to manage Patient Reports and includes user interface for use in selecting phrases to be inserted in the template.
  • The system contemplates that the physician personally conducts a patient examination and either generates personal notes which the physician can use later for dictation or the physician personally fills out a checklist. In this manner, the physician reports of the patient examination can vary for each patient. The input for the report is prepared directly by the physician and can contain any number of variable responses. Each variable response may include different options, such as options on a menu of a computer. The physician can then personally modify and customize the report document throughout by inserting words into the generated document with the use of an integrated word processor. When the physician personally completes a checklist, another individual can generated the desired document from information checked off by the physician on the checklist.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 6,026,363 discloses a medical history documentation system and method for recording information relating to at least one of a designed patient's current medical condition, a physical examination, a diagnosis and a treatment plan. The system includes a recording member having a plurality of discrete recording sections formed thereon programmed for recording information relating to the patient. The encoded indicia is communicated by a first person to a second person during a physical examination of the patient by the first person. An input member is used by the second person for recording medical information in the form of predetermined encoded indicia in applicable discrete recording sections of the recording member. A transcriber having a plurality of report section templates is used. Each report section template corresponds to a discrete recording section. Each of the report section templates comprise a plurality of optional text variable segment each of which are assigned to a selected one of the predetermined encoded indicia. The transcriber is operative to decode each one of the predetermined encoded indicia recorded on the recording member. An imaging device responsive to the transcriber prepares a patient's report specific to the designated patient.
  • Despite the advances in the art, there is a need for a system and method for facilitating interactive dictation of data and records and to automatically generate reports. A need also exists for a system and method of managing medical records for concurrently recording patient history and/or examination notes, if so desired, during patient examination. A further need exists to have a system and method of managing medical records in which the physician may document (e.g., by dictating or transcribing) the medical information by voice dictation over a global electronic network.
  • It is an aspect of the present invention to provide a comprehensive system and method of managing records, such as medical records, in which the system, through a voice driven, voice entry interactive mechanism, facilitates the medical professional to input information and to generate a report.
  • It is another aspect of the present invention to provide a system and method for managing medical records through a computer program that provides for specific pre-encoded indicia of medical information, such as medical codes, basis for billing, symptoms, standard phrases and templates that are physician specific.
  • It is another aspect of the present invention to provide for a system and method for managing medical records in which the computer program used provides for patient specific data.
  • It is another aspect of the present invention to provide for a system and method for managing medical records in which the computer program provides a basis for editorial using voice input.
  • It is another aspect of the present invention to provide for a system and method for managing medical records in which the system associated therewith provides a basis for generating reports and in various desirable forms.
  • It is another aspect of the present invention to provide for a system and method for managing medical records in which the system associated therewith is transmitted through the internet and the data input can be based on voice dictation, text input or by point and click mechanism.
  • These and other aspects of the invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art from the following detailed description of the invention, the accompanying drawing and the appended claims.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • According to an embodiment of the present invention, a new method and apparatus is provided for facilitating entry of records by either point, click, or type with computer interfaces, or by voice dictation, or by a combination of point, click, type, and dictate. The entry of records is stored in an electronic database. The entry of records can be communicated over an electronic network. The illustrative embodiments are explained herein for entry, documentation, and reporting of medical records, but one skilled in the art readily appreciates that the system and method can be applicable for other professional or commercial services and reports.
  • FIG. 1 provides a computer network system in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. In FIG. 1, the computer network system 10 comprises a central server 20, which includes a central controller 22, memory 36, various software modules including a voice processing unit 24, a speaker identification unit 26, and word processing/transcription unit 28. Each software module may include associated cache memory to facilitate direct and speedy access to corresponding stored templates or data. For example, the voice processing unit 24 includes speech recognition capability to facilitate recognition of voice input by a user over a network (described below). The associated memory may store the user's pre-recorded (or templated) words and phrases to facilitate the voice recognition process. The speaker identification unit 26 is used to identify users seeking entry into the system. The word processing/transcription unit 28, along with template files 30, transcribes entries of medical information from voice into text. The template files 30 may store pages of templates accessible through the network from a browser at the user's computer terminal 52. The memory 36 stores executable codes executable by central controller 22 to perform processes including accessing records from memory and storing data including data usable by the central server 20 to communicate with subscriber users, subscriber authentication data, medical records, etc.
  • A network server 40 includes modules to facilitate access to/from the central server 20 to computers/servers connected to the network. The network server modules interface the servers using local area network (LAN) protocol in a LAN environment or, preferably uses internet protocol (IP) to interface the client stations/servers to the central server 20 over a global electronic network such as the Internet.
  • Generally, the user work station 52, which, for example, includes a computer CPU fitted with software for connection with the user server 50. The use of a user server 50 is optional (as shown by the dashed lines) if the user work station 52 is equipped with the interfacing tools compatible with that of the network server 40. The user computer work station 52 may be a fixed or portable personal computer equipped with a computer screen, a keyboard, a microphone and/or a camera, software modules for browsing hypertext or hypermedia pages, a set of computer speakers and a computer mouse.
  • Data or information can be input into the central server 20 from the user's computer work station 52 over the Internet without software specially made for the central server 20. Specific software that may be needed from time to time can be downloaded from the central server 20 and installed at the user's station 52. For example, security software for user identification or authentication can be loaded at the user's station and used to ensure the user is a registered subscriber.
  • According to an aspect of the present invention, the speaker identification unit 26 serves to identify specific users, such as a physician or healthcare worker, to access the patient database file stored in memory 36. FIG. 1A shows an exemplary process for user identification according to an embodiment of the present invention. When a user accesses the URL for accessing the medical system (e.g., www.medicasystem.com), the user is presented with a home page having a user sign-on area (see FIG. 2). The user enters its pre-registered user login name and password (step 1000). The central server 20 compares the sign-on entries against its subscriber database with the stored pre-registered information and if the sign-on information matches (step 1010), the user information stored in the memory 36 specific to the sign-on data is retrieved. The user is prompted to speak a random phrase into its microphone (step 1020). The spoken phrase is received by the central server 20 and the voice processing unit 24 parses the received voice information and performs biometric analysis against voice information previously collected from this user (step 1040). If the biometric analysis returns with a high percentage match, the user is identified and authenticated (step 1050) and the user gains access to the system. If the biometric analysis returns with a negative match, the user is asked to repeat the login procedure. An alternative process to identify the speaker may dispense with the login name and password entry (e.g., the speaker skipping onto the speak phrase portion) if the biometric analysis returns with a very high percentage (e.g., 99%) match.
  • A commercially available software such as VoiceID, from Pronexus can be used for the speaker identification process.
  • The voice identification system can be used to authorize the user emergency access from remote locations and allow only certain individuals whose voice has been specifically identified by the voice identification database to access. With a random phrase access basis, access to the patient database file is not possible through a recording device, which is, merely re-transmitting a person's voice, unlike other speaker identification that ordinarily would have allowed the user access to the patient database file, from a recording device without the correct combination of words. Only specific words identified by the voice identification program 30 would allow access in this embodiment.
  • A presently preferred embodiment is typically operated in a medical clinic environment where the user (medical practitioners and staff) requires access to various types of information previously recorded about existing patients and also requires the ability to add new patients to the clinic's files. Every user having access to the central computer network system 10 can access specific patient databases based on the above-described speaker identification database, and different levels of data access can be granted to different users.
  • Henceforth, the description to pages corresponds to pages displayable using a web browser or other medium to display hypertext or hypermedia pages, as shown in some of the figures later in this application. Some pages are a part of the template files, and serves as the basis for the patient database entry and report system. That is, the web pages have customized features that have been prearranged for the user. For example, the page may contain a designated space on the page to allow the user to enter information on the patient's current status. The file may contain a space to view previous entries (“persistent data”) for reviewing the history of the patient's status. The file may contain a set of boxes for the user to check (by point-and-click mechanism) with regard to medical conditions like low back pain, neck pain, double vision, headaches, etc. Although the forms shown in the drawings are applicable to patient records accessed by health care professionals as illustrations, the forms can be made applicable to other professions or services by changing the content of the forms. One ordinary skilled in the art can readily appreciate that the form features usable by any professional include the presentation to the user of forms with areas of pre-filled information and areas for filling in, in most cases interactively, information which is contemporaneous, such as patient examination data, building inspection data, billing information, etc., as the exam, inspection, or billing is occurring. Preferably, the user may enter information into the form and thus the database through one or more combination of voice, type, or point-and-click mechanism.
  • Again referring to patient data for illustration, the type of input criteria on each page of the patient database entry and report system is specific for each user. Although a user may choose to select one or more pages that are pre-filled or pre-arranged, the type of information for entry into the file may be modified for the user by the host. For example, the user may enter data using a voice input device, a computer mouse or a keyboard. The data may be left as a digitally stored voice data or translated into textual data from the stored voice data. The date, name, and other voice-recognizable information may be translated into text.
  • In one preferred embodiment, the user accesses the patient databases though a specific internet address or URL. FIG. 2 shows an embodiment of the access page 210. The webpage presents several selectable entries, such as Physician Portal 240, Patient Portal 250, New Physician Account Portal 260, New Patient Account 265, Transcription Portal 270, New Transcription Account 275, Apply for transcription directorship button 285, or Emergency Access 290. In this access page, optional other information may be provided. For example, company identification, like company logo 280, may be provided. In another embodiment, other forms of advertisement may be provided as an on-screen display prior to displaying a page.
  • In an embodiment, the user identified in the login entry 220 may be locked out from further use if the user enters the incorrect password assigned to the user in the password entry 220 for a fixed number of attempts, after which time access may be allowed only by an administrator of the main computer network system 10, preferably by resetting the password. Depending on the administrator, the user may be required to set a different password in resetting the password. Also, the administrator may require the password to be of a specific length, and it may be case-sensitive, or it may include both numbers and alphabets.
  • Even with the correct login entry and password entry, the user may be authorized to access only certain databases, depending upon the associated login/password entries.
  • The Physician Portal 240 provides the database containing the page that the user requires to view patient information and to dictate (and transcribe) patient information. The Patient Portal 250 provides a database that a patient may access at a work station 52 in the physician's office or a separate location so that the patient can provide preliminary (demographic) information. Such information may include personal data and description of medical symptoms to allow the physician to access this patient information prior to examination or treatment. The level of security and the basis for entering the Patient Portal 250 is dependent on the user's requirement. The Transcription Portal 270, New Transcription Account 275, and Apply for transcription directorship button 285 are selected and portals accessed by professional transcribers to retrieve voice records to transcribe, to set up an account as a registered transcriber to transcribe the voice records in exchange for fee, or to apply for further transcription services.
  • FIG. 2A shows an exemplary emergency access process according to an embodiment of the present invention. A subscriber accesses the portal by clicking on the Emergency Access portal button on the portal selection page after sign-on (step 2010). A form is presented for the user to enter demographic data such as patient ID, name, date of birth and residence and a space for the user to describe the emergency and provide location of access and contact information for the hospital. User is presented with a “Send by Secure Mail” button, which upon clicking by the user, the entered information is sent to an emergency attendant EA (step 2020). The EA receives the information and checks it against the stored patient database (step 2030), if there is a match, the EA contacts the hospital using the contact information in the mailed message. The physician treating the patient requiring emergency aid is given a temporary login and temporary password (step 2040) to gain access to the central server and database (step 2050). If there is no match to the patient records, the user is returned to the login page to try entry again. It is contemplated that subscribers or patients of subscribers whose records are stored in the database are given a custom emergency card for the users to carry. The card indicates the url or the web address of the record system and notification on the card to access the url in an emergency.
  • FIG. 3 provides a Physician Greetings page 310 dedicated to a specific user after the user selects the Physician Portal 270. This dedicated Physician Greeting page recognizes the users by the login entry 220, and provided its identification by name as provided in block 320. The user may access the computer network system 10 from one of several user work stations 50. Through a location/office dropdown menu tab 330, the user chooses one of several locations from where the user is working. The choice of location/office in conjunction with entering the Dictate Report 340 entry will lead the user to a page shown in FIG. 4. The location/office is specific, for example, to various offices or clinics that the user examines patients. A separate Sign Off 459 entry button enables the user to sign off and return to the previous Physician Greetings page 310.
  • FIG. 4 is the Scheduling Page 410 specific for a given location/office. This page enables the user to gain an overview on the patients. Various patient information are provided on this page including Patient Name 420, Dictation ID 422 that is specific to each session, Provider Name 424, and User Name 426.

Voice over IP (VoIP) technology can also be employed to communicate the voice information from the user to the central server.
  • In another embodiment, the user performs dictation of medical information data through the internet. To facilitate the user's dictation, the user may access other patient medical files (or pages), which in the present case, may be the medical history or physical examination status. As the user dictates the information, the information is then transcribed into textual data. In the Dictate all page shown in FIG. 5, it is contemplated that the user/physician dictates portions or an entire patient record, including demographic and clinical information for the patient. The dictate all page is thus useful for use in generation of a complete report without segregation. A more efficient or HIPM compliant record entry method can be entered by use of the HPI page, selectable from the HPI button on the left column of FIG. 5. The HPI page is shown in FIG. 5A. It can be seen that the physician can select from one of ‘Voice Recording’, ‘Previous Entry’, ‘Type Text’, or ‘Standard Phrases’ to input clinical data. The selection of ‘Previous Entry’ will access from the database the previously entered information on this patient. This data is the ‘persistent’ data such as the information from the last examination, the previous prescription or diagnosis, etc. The ‘Standard Phrases’ button will cause the doctor constant or patient constant or pre-filled information to be accessed and presented to the user. The “Voice Recording’ selection will bring up the voice player as shown in FIG. 5 for interactive voice dictation entry.

  • Different from the Dictate All page shown in FIG. 5, this page records only the clinical portion of the record. It is contemplated that the patient's demographic data is already or separately entered, preferably by the patient or by staff member. The patient demographic data is separately stored in a different file from the patient's clinical data. The system uses reference coding, such as a patient's ID number, to link the demographic and the clinical data and to maintain patient's identity confidential, for example, if a patient's record is accessed or sent using the patient's ID number, the demographic and clinical data are accessed and transmitted separately. A combined patient demographic and clinical data is accessible only if the patient's name and other identification information set by the system is entered. Such use makes entry of data secure, cost efficient, and HIPAA complaint.
  • The clinical information input can be made in segmented portions, each segmented portion can be entered by different users, such as one segment input by a physician and another segment input by another health care provider or physician. The segmented portions are linked to the patient by the index such as the patient's ID. Each segmented portion can be retrieved, displayed, or input separately, independent of other segments, or in combination with other segmented portions. Preferably, the segmented portions are organized into corresponding sections and subsections, as further shown as described below.
  • FIG. 6 provides a Prefix Phrase 610 page that the user pre-records prefix phrases particular to the user.
