CPEMH (Computer-aided Patient-entered Medical History)

A system that presents a series of questions, thereby collecting data that traditionally would require a receptionist, a “traditional clipboard,” a nurse and a doctor. These systems use knowledge management and branching logic to tailor each session to the individual patient. Once the data is collected, it can be parsed, translated and highlighted. The clinician then has access to data prior to seeing the patient and can better direct the encounter.
