Intelligent Healthcare Capabilities

We introduced the concept of Intelligent Healthcare across several posts so far:

Over the next several months we're going to cover a number of related IH topics and we thought it would be worthwhile to capture some of what we consider to be the most important IH-related enterprise level solution capabilities.

Next Generation Healthcare IT innovation begins with vision...
There are two perspectives into Intelligent Healthcare (IH) capabilities; the first is based upon how IH can be exploited as a methodology to orchestrate the design and implementation of Healthcare IT solutions. The second perspective is based upon how those solutions developed using the IH methodology actually impact the practice of Healthcare. Both perspectives are vital in helping to understand and support the eventual realization of the benefits implicit with Intelligent Healthcare

Capability Title
Capability Description
Patient-Focused Performance Engineering
Attributes that can be identified and included within any Healthcare solution design paradigm.
Agile Lifecycle Federation
The ability to define solution best practices and make those practices available to communities either as recommendations or solution compliance guidelines.
Solution Performance Metrics
Definition of systems performance expectations with strategies for mitigation of issues when or if they may realized. (SLAs with engineering support)
Scenario-based Design Patterns
Definition of integration patterns; at the data level, services level, infrastructure level and combined. 
Dynamic Collaboration
Web 2.0 morphing into 3.0 – using Social Publishing capabilities to replace other traditional software support and tie together communities at a more detailed level. This covers project management, requirements management, COI management etc.
Community Process Management
The ability to collaboratively define, publish and share process-based knowledge and functionality.
Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Reference EA
Definition of follow-on architectures that can benefit from the Connect core – these reference architectures can help to further harmonize inter-operability initiatives.
Semantic Reference Architecture - (plus management of Healthcare Ontologies)  
Illustrating prototypical architectures for extending data inter-operability using emerging technologies such as RDF databases.
Federated Enterprise Architecture
The ability to reconcile EA’s across domains using a Wiki-based knowledge framework rather than through proprietary EA tools.
Innovation Management
Development of Innovation techniques, tools and processes designed to support integration of new technologies into existing initiatives. This capability provides IH with the proactive perspective needed to anticipate issues years ahead of time.
Trend Identification
The ability to engineer trend management capabilities both within individual (local) and group (global) perspectives.
Automated Data Collection
Self-configuring interface negotiation and message transport. 

All of these capabilities are designed to facilitate a new paradigm wherein medical information becomes dynamic and problem-solving becomes collaborative.
