The role of ambulatory care information systems in supporting the provision of holistic care for persons infected with the human immunodeficiency virus
An ambulatory care information system (ACIS) could support holistic patient care for AIDS patients. An ACIS could be designed to capture data on biologic and physiologic factors, symptom status, functional status, general health perceptions, overall quality of life, characteristics of the patient, and characteristics of the patient's environment. It could incorporate the patient's perceptions and values, improve data collection and analysis, ensure up-to-date care, and permit remote viewing and monitoring.

Computer-based patient record (CPR) systems are valuable tools for the storage, retrieval, and analysis of health status information. As purchasers of CPR systems demand more extensive health measurement information, developers must ensure that data systems and technology are available to meet customer needs. CPR systems must offer an increased capacity for complex information collection and evaluation.
