Database Aspects of a Patient Data Management System

Management of information in the Intensive Care Unit is a complex process essential to the survival of patients. The information generated or handled is characterized by its diversity and large quantity including administrative, pharmaceutical, medical records, patient parameter, scheduling, and many other data types. We are using an Object-Oriented data model called ``Object Modeling Technique'' (OMT), and mapping the data model (design) into a lower level of logical abstraction that translates to a Relational Data Definition Language (DDL).
