Abstract

The Johns Hopkins Oncology Center has developed an Oncology Clinical Information System which is used for support to clinical decision-making, assistance in facility administration, prospective planning for patient management, and research. The system operates on a PDP 11/70 and is written in MUMPS-11 using a hierarchical data base system. The data base currently contains 25,000 patient records and has extensive clinical data for 2,500 patients. This work outlines the functions the OCIS has been developed to perform. It does this by providing illustrations of the use of its data base and by identifying the different users of the system. The paper then shows how the data base is organized to support the various applications provided by the system. Three applications are discussed in some detail, and an evaluation of the data model is presented.
