Kim H, Chung H, Wang S, Jiang X, Choi J - Stud Health Technol Inform (2014)

Bottom Line: Accurate assessment and documentation of skin conditions facilitate communication among care providers and are critical to effective prevention and mitigation of pressure ulcer.SAPPIRE demonstrates (1) data documentation conforming to the relevant terminology standards, (2) data exchange using Continuity of Care Records (CCR) standard and (3) smart display of patient data relevant to risk parameters to promote accurate pressure ulcer risk assessment with the Braden scale.Challenges associated standardizing assessment data faced during this development and the approaches that SAPPIRE took to overcome them are described.

ABSTRACT
Accurate assessment and documentation of skin conditions facilitate communication among care providers and are critical to effective prevention and mitigation of pressure ulcer. We report developing a prototype mobile system called SAPPIRE (Skin Assessment for Pressure Ulcer Prevention, an Integrated Recording Environment) for an android device to assist nurses with skin assessment and documentation at bedside. SAPPIRE demonstrates (1) data documentation conforming to the relevant terminology standards, (2) data exchange using Continuity of Care Records (CCR) standard and (3) smart display of patient data relevant to risk parameters to promote accurate pressure ulcer risk assessment with the Braden scale. Challenges associated standardizing assessment data faced during this development and the approaches that SAPPIRE took to overcome them are described.

Mentions: The overall SAPPIRE workflow and the key functions implemented in each step are presented in Figure 2. In general, the application screens were implemented in a much simpler form than the original mock-ups in this prototype. For example, Figure 3 shows how the value mapping design in Figure 1 is implemented. The application, the user manual, and testing data sets are available for download at http://dbmi-engine.ucsd.edu/ONC/.
