WebCIS is a World Wide Web-based clinical information system. It is built upon the architecture designed by the Columbia University Department of Medical Informatics for use at New York Presbyterian Healthcare. It is based on a centralized patient repository, a clinical vocabulary (the Medical Entities Dictionary) to define all terms stored in the repository, and a clinical event monitor. (Alternate view.)
