The clinical significance of an automated EHR lay interpretation system is that the family can be kept in the decision-making loop, in a culturally sensitive way and on a more timely basis than is possible today, and potentially avoid delays often involved when families need time to make decisions—since they learn relevant facts sooner (perhaps even days sooner), they can start the process sooner. In addition to the data flowing from caregivers, the son can also enter information based on his knowledge of his father’s present state and medical history, providing caregivers with another source of information, and empowering the son to have a greater role in his father’s treatment.

But since he is not a physician himself, he invokes a data interpretation application that examines the data in the EHR and provides in lay language a summary of the important aspects of a patient’s medical condition, previously provided treatments, and treatment options under consideration. The application provides an interpretation (and the reasoning behind the interpretation) that is comparable to that which an experienced clinician could provide.
