Abstract

The plans for Resource Coordination for Surgical Services system (RCSS) incorporate a distributed objectbase with a coordinating server. User-centered information screens are customized for each geographic location in surgical services. User interfaces are designed to mimic paper lists and worksheets used by health care providers. Patient-specific and site-specific data will be entered and maintained by providers at each geographic location, but also rebroadcast and displayed for all providers. Although RCSS is primarily a communications system, it will also support review of surgical utilization and operative scheduling.
