Pediatric rehabilitation researchers at the Children’s Hospital in Denver expressed interest in developing an automated, mobile device to replace a paper-driven process for collecting patient rehabilitation data for children, many of whom have suffered brain trauma. The Information Systems group at the University of Colorado’s Computer Science Department developed and deployed a prototype system. These pediatric patients are tested in a variety of locations around the hospital. Thus, the system took the form of a Palm handheld application for data collection, a desktop system with a GUI (graphical user interface), also for data entry, and a backend notebook computer-based system for syncing data with a rehabilitation database and with the hospital’s larger medical information system, which manages records for individual patients. The system is used to collect hundreds of data points per patient, and can supply access to data collected over long periods of time.
