Abstract

A flexible contextual care protocol application to guide clinical personnel's of primary health centers (PHC) is disclosed. A user simplified contextual care protocol for doctors and experts are created to make the working experience relatively better. The flexible contextual care protocol enables the users to access and navigate the decision tree on mobile in order to treat patients with ease of accessibility. The application is linked to a dictionary application program interface (API) and helps in better understanding of the decision tree by providing quick definitions of the medical terms. Thereby, the user stays focused and does not have to navigate away from the application. Further, the users are allowed to publish the findings through the application and the changes are incorporated into the decision tree stored at the server.

FLEXIBLE CONTEXTUAL CARE

BACKGROUND

 

The present disclosure relates generally to digital healthcare and more particularly to flexible contextual care.

Currently, one of the major causes for late diagnosis of medical problems and poor prognosis is due to lack of accessibility to the quality clinical care centers. The maternal health care also suffers because of poor accessibility to good health centers.

Therefore, a protocol for standardized care model is provided in the form of decision tree, forest or neural net for decision making to the health care personnel’s of the PHC across the nation. However, an enhancement is needed to make the protocol application more users friendly.

It would be desirable to have an efficient flexible contextual care protocol application for clinical personnel’s of primary health centers (PHC).

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

A flexible contextual care protocol application to guide clinical personnel’s of primary health centers (PHC) is disclosed. A user simplified contextual care protocol for doctors and experts are created to make the working experience relatively better. The flexible contextual care protocol enables the users to access and navigate the decision tree on mobile in order to treat patients with ease of accessibility. The application is linked to a dictionary application program interface (API) and helps in better understanding of the decision tree by providing quick definitions of the medical terms. Thereby, the user stays focused and does not have to navigate away from the application. Further, the users are allowed to publish the findings through the application and the changes are incorporated into the decision tree stored at the server.

The application comprises a pre-built model based on the features from National Rural health Mission (NRHM) for various diseases and ailments. When the user deviates from the prescribed method suggested by decision model, the application allows the user to make a submission for that particular node in the decision tree. However, the newly created branch for the node gains weight only when other doctors or users find it as useful. A feedback mechanism is available that notifies about the entered new decision path and the usefulness o...
