Workpackage Description

Task 1: Develop the SENATOR decision support engine.

The objective of this task is to scope, design and develop the decision support engine. This involves providing a user-friendly facility to allow the research team enter the Senator rules. The tool will hide all the Senator Rules complexity and the clinical research done in the Senator project from the end-user while making the benefits available to clinicians via a web based application and via an API. The decision support engine tool will take a data feed in a standardised message format. The decision support engine will return a Senator report with drug and dosage recommendation(s) based on the coded data supplied. The algorithm will flag errors on prescription for example, if a patient is on incorrect medications or the dosage is incorrect, the algorithm will return the list of incorrect/inappropriate medications and recommend dosage.

Task 2: Develop the multi-lingual web application.

The objective of this task is to scope, design and develop a multi-lingual web based application that will interface with the decision support engine. This web based application will allow users from the 6 trial sites to enter data, so the research teams can determine the effeteness of the Senator decision.

Task 3: Scope & Design the decision support engine API.

The objective of this task is to develop the software API’s that will allow Healthcare software vendors to interface their products directly with the Senator Decision support engine. This will allow end-users of these products to get the full benefit of the decision support engine in their products.
