Abstract Information Model for Geriatric Patient Treatment - Actors and Relations in Daily Geriatric Care

Lars Rölker-Denker, Andreas Hein

Abstract

The authors propose an abstract information for geriatric care, the geriatric information model (GIM). They adopt an information model from cancer care and introduce characteristics for geriatric care (patient population, multidisciplinary and multi-professional approach, cross-sectoral approach). Actors (patients, physicians, therapists, organisations), information objects, and information relations are defined. The GIM is validated by mapping four typical knowledge processes (multi-professional geriatric team session, interdisciplinary clinical case conferences, tumor boards, transition management) onto the model. The GIM is stated as useful for understanding information flows and relations in geriatric care. All processes for validation can be mapped onto GIM. In future work the GIM should be tested with more knowledge process and could also be used for identifying gaps in the IT support of geriatric care. A study on high and low information quality in geriatric care is also proposed.
