Care Plan On-Line (CPOL) is an intranet based system that supports a “Coordinated Care” model for chronic/complex disease management. CPOL combines provision of solicited and unsolicited advice features based on integration of the electronic medical record (EMR) with its decision support logic. The objective is to support General Practitioners (GPs) in formulating a 12-month care plan of services such that: (a) the plan is proactive and patient-centered; (b) the GP is kept in awareness of project- and diseasespecific clinical practice guidelines; and (c) the support integrates with GP workflow in a natural fashion. A key feature of our approach is to blur the distinction of EMR and decision support by presenting guidelines in layers with the top-most being a problem-oriented presentation of patient status, progressing on through to patient-independent supporting evidence. In conjunction with a degree of automated inclusion of care planning services, the system demonstrates mixed user and software initiative. We describe the CPOL deployment setting, the challenges of guideline-based clinical decision support, our approach to guideline delivery, and the CPOL architecture.
