Veterans Like Mine

Samore MH. Veterans Like Mine. 2016 Oct 15.


Brief Description: The VLMine informatics tool retrieves and presents information on other patients similar to the patient being treated. The VLMine tool will facilitate: the management of diagnostic uncertainty; the assessment of treatment options; and the prediction of clinical outcomes. This tool will provide guidance for therapeutic management by addressing knowledge and experience gaps, inadequately filled by traditional information resources. This project is developing a proof-of-concept prototype with the potential to greatly improve patient care by providing an additional decision support tool that identifies protocols that work, as well as less effective protocols, in near-real time, for a Veteran like mine. Upon completion, we expect to have a prototype that can be adapted at the bedside.
