What is CCOW?

The HL7 CCOW (Clinical Context Object Workgroup) Standard is vendor independent and allows clinical applications to share information at the point of care.

Using a technique called "context management", CCOW provides the clinician with a unified view on the information held in separate and disparate healthcare applications referring to the same patient, encounter or user.  This means that when a clinician signs on to one application within the group of disparate applications tied together by the CCOW environment, that same sign-on is simultaneously executed on all other applications within the group.  Similarly, when the clinician selects a patient, the same patient is selected in all the applications.  CCOW then builds a combined view of the patient on one screen.

CCOW works for both client-server and web-based applications.  The acronym CCOW stands for "Clinical Context Object Workgroup", a reference to the standards committee within the HL7 group that developed the standard.  Read more in HL7 CCOW Books and Guides. CCOW

ObamaCare Is Crashing And May Be Completely History By the Inauguration Of Our Next President
Friday, 19th August 2016
Many didn't believe it was possible when the CEO of Blue Cross told his investors that ObamaCare wouldn't even be around in 5-years.  Apparently, he knows his stuff, he was right, and the Democrats and the Obama Administration were either all wrong or they lied to the American People to get the Congress to vote for it before they read it.  Looks like the MIT advisor who mocked the stupidity of the American Voter was right, and that the corruption at the top isn't even trying to hide their endeavors.
