Researchers and care providers wanted to have access to all of the patients` vitals signs (temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rate) but most of this data wasn?t recorded, only a few readings a day were posted to the patients Electronic Medical Record (EMR). The EMR isn`t meant to store such volume of data, let alone to perform any data mining on it. This session will describe the architecture of the solution that was implemented to collect these vital signs automatically from Bedside Medical Devices (BDMI), and store them into a temporary storage, then load them into a Hadoop cluster. The session will also cover how the team married this vital signs data in the HDFS (Hadoop File System) with the rest of the EMR data for our Principles Investigators (PI) in our research institute to search for correlations between administered medications, diagnosis, and vital signs readings. The session will describe the reasons behind the design decisions that were made, such as using a Cloud Hadoop cluster versus on-premises while maintaining HIPAA.
