Abstract: The proliferation of technology in our daily lives has widely changed the way in which information is being captured, processed, stored and analyzed. Information systems have become an integral part of the healthcare system in the developed world. However, the patient journey through the numerous routes in the health care system can make the patient data integrity, profiling, reporting and analysis extremely challenging. It is imperative to design a model to capture the patient’s medical records from various health care contexts (i.e. Family doctors, Free Clinics, Emergency room visits, Social Services routes, Senior care facilities and Hospital systems). This article proposes a distributed healthcare information system database which captures and synchronizes information for all patients routing throughout the various services in the US health care system that uses a Unified Medical Record Access and Analysis (UMRAA) card. The proposed system acts as an integrated data solution of a patient’s medical history for use in daily operations and decision support analytics.
