The doctor will BRMS you now
New York Times, March 19, 2009
A couple of years ago, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies released studies that found at least 1.5 million people are hurt by medication mistakes every year in the United States, costing hospitals about $3.5 billion in additional treatment expenses. But technology companies claim to have a means of lowering these figures, and it's called Business Rule Management System, or BRMS. More and more, companies are looking to inject this type of technology deeper into their business computing systems. A recent example of one successful embrace of BRMS comes from Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
