About the Presentation

The autonomous medicine program of the Canadian Space Agency and its Advanced Crew Medical System (ACMS) concept presents the opportunity to trigger a technological leap frog for the entire healthcare “system”.  The ACMS is the integration of continuous monitoring provided by next generation sensors with self-updating clinical decision support systems, automated care and computer based patient records. The ACMS is the synthesis of seminal works from diverse domains that have yet to fulfill their promises to healthcare for want of the coherent integration proposed by the ACMS concept.

The seminar will describe the technologies necessary for the representation of clinical information in a computable and semantically interoperable form. The use case developed for the Canadian Space Agency ACMS program will illustrate the integration of computable and semantically interoperable clinical information with clinical systems design, rules based logic systems and automated reference management.

About the Speaker

Dr. Hughes studied Civil Engineering and Architecture at McGill University prior to becoming a Family Physician and Professor of Medicine. He has conducted research into Advanced Clinical Intelligence Systems for Canada Health Infoway and the Canadian Space Agency and teaches for McGill University and the College des Medicine du Quebec.
