The goal of the Appworks initiative is to provide a controlled "sandbox" for the development of clinical and biomedical "Apps", with particular focus on decision support, targeted at both patients and healthcare providers and their organizations.

The framework will provide both horizontal, general purpose services - security, terminology lookup and mapping, data integration, etc... - and domain-specific, vertical.

Several use cases are anticipated, currently involving (list subject to change):

  • Narcotic dose monitoring
  • Vaccination management (reconciliation, scheduling, ...)
  • "Score" calculation
