Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems definition: A concept, developed in 1983 under the aegis of and supported by the National Library of Medicine under the name of Integrated Academic Information Management Systems, to provide professionals in academic health sciences centers and health sciences institutions with convenient access to an integrated and comprehensive network of knowledge. It addresses a wide cross-section of users from administrators and faculty to students and clinicians and has applications to planning, clinical and managerial decision-making, teaching, and research. It provides access to various types of clinical, management, educational, etc., databases, as well as to research and bibliographic databases. In August 1992 the name was changed from Integrated Academic Information Management Systems to Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems to reflect use beyond the academic milieu.
Delivery of Health Care, Integrated definition: A health care system which combines physicians, hospitals, and other medical services with a health plan to provide the complete spectrum of medical care for its customers. In a fully integrated system, the three key elements - physicians, hospital, and health plan membership - are in balance in terms of matching medical resources with the needs of purchasers and patients. (Coddington et al., Integrated Health Care: Reorganizing the Physician, Hospital and Health Plan Relationship, 1994, p7)
Integrated Learning System definition: A computer system that provides tutorial instruction in academic subjects at an individual level in a format that allows students to master material at their own pace, i.e., CME courses.
Integrated Pain Scale definition: An instrument designed to take into account both pain intensity and duration. (Ventafridda 1983)
Integrated Neuromusculoskeletal Release definition: A treatment system in which combined procedures are designed to stretch and reflexly release patterned soft tissue and joint-related restrictions. Both direct and indirect methods are used interactively.
Integrated Molecular Analysis of Genomes and their Expression Consortium definition: A group formed in 1993 by four academic groups on a collaborative basis after informal discussions led to a common vision of how to achieve an important goal in the study of the human genome: the Integrated Molecular Analysis of Genomes and their Expression. They share high-quality, arrayed cDNA libraries and place sequence, map, and expression data on the clones in these arrays into the public domain. The human and mouse genomes were the first to be studied, and the collection now contains clones from rat, zebrafish, Fugu, Xenopus and rhesus macaque. They anticipate arraying (and sharing) cDNA libraries from additional species over time. A majority of their clones are publicly available, free of any royalties, and may be used by anyone agreeing with their guidelines.
Information Systems, Data Management, Hospital, Integrated definition: Data management information systems designed to record, process, and display comprehensive integrated administrative, management, financial, and clinical information related to the provision and utilization of hospitalwide services and facilities. The systems are capable of producing clinical and financial reports, patient data, and/or customized reports as required. These systems can support the management of a variety of administrative (e.g., materials management), financial (e.g., cost accounting, billing reimbursement, human resources), patient data (e.g., medical records, admission/discharge/transfer), and clinical (e.g., radiology, cardiology, pharmacy, laboratory) tasks of a healthcare facility. Integrated hospital information systems (IHISs) are usually available as a combination of hardware (e.g., a local network including workstations, servers, and links) and firmware and/or software. IHISs may be installed as a central system or assembled by integrating independent information systems already installed in the healthcare facility.
ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter complex, integrated substrate binding definition: A complex for the transport of metabolites out of the cell, consisting of 4 domains: two ATP-binding domains and two membrane spanning domains. In some cases, all 4 domains are contained on 1 polypeptide, while in others one ATP-binding domain and one membrane spanning domain are together on one polypeptide in what is called a half transporter". Two "half-transporters" come together to form a functional transporter. Transport of the substrate across the membrane is driven by the hydrolysis of ATP." [GOC:mlg, GOC:mtg_sensu]
