Interest in radical surgery to achieve complete resection and improve long-term survival in patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy for ductal adenocarcinoma has been renewed. This surgery includes extended lymphadenectomy, multivisceral resections, and synchronous arterial and venous resections. The evidence that these surgeries improve long-term survival is poor, except perhaps for synchronous venous resection, which can be justified if a margin negative (R0) resection is achieved without increased morbidity and mortality, and if there is no invasion of the vein wall. The recognition of patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer and the increasing use of neoadjuvant treatment makes it more difficult to know if the vein is invaded, increases reliance on trial dissection to establish resectability, and might increase the number of synchronous venous resections done. This Personal View seeks to review the justification for pancreatoduodenectomy with synchronous venous resection to promote debate and draw attention to the gaps in knowledge for further research. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

Medicity | Date: 2013-12-16

A system and method for managing patient consent. A Master Matching Index (MMI) includes a collection of patient information and identifiers. An MMI adapter is coupled to the MMI for sending queries to the MMI for a health related entity. The MMI adapter comprises a data access manager that includes a lookup module, an authorization engine, an auditing module, a report module and a user interface engine. The user profile engine generates and updates user profile information. The lookup module enables a user to query patient information. The authorization engine determines whether the user has authorization to access patient information. The auditing module logs and monitors user activity. The report module generates reports related to user activity. The user interface engine generates user interfaces for displaying the user profiles, patient profiles and patient data.

A system and method for managing patient consent. A data access manager includes a controller, a lookup module, a clinical authorization engine, a logging/auditing unit, a user profile engine, a report module and a user interface engine. The controller manages the core functions and the transmission of data between the data access manager components. The lookup module enables a user to query patient data. The clinical authorization engine authorizes access to patient data. The logging/auditing unit logs and monitors user activity. The user profile engine accesses and updates user profile information. The patient profile engine accesses and updates patient profile information. The report module generates reports related to the user activity. The user interface engine generates user interfaces for displaying the user profiles and patient information data.

Patent
Medicity | Date: 2014-02-03

A system and method for managing healthcare information is disclosed. The data servers each include a data manager that comprises a controller, a grid engine, applications, an application manager and a user interface engine. The controller manages the core functions and the transmission of data between data manager components. The grid engine manages information sent between data servers. The applications are applications that are created by the user or downloaded as third-party applications. The application manager manages the creation and communication between applications. The user interface engine generates user interfaces for displaying the applications and collecting clinical trial data.
