The iCIMS Lattice framework is built around the principles of the design of forms, the sharing of data automatically across forms, and the definition of workflow for staff that is optimised according to the practices of the workplace.

As staff develop new work practices and have new work requirements placed on them, the intrinsic adaptability of the iCIMS framework ensures staff can experiment with different configurations of work processes to optimise the introduction of the new work methods because changes are made quickly and easily in near real-time.

Clinicians are not always good at saying what they do want, but they know what they don’t want when they see it.

iCIMS Principles

The iCIMS methodology for building clinical information systems is set on these principles:

  • The clinical team who has to use the clinical information system should create its design.
  • It must be always possible to change the design easily and readily.
  • NO programming should be done to create any changes to the design.
  • Different clinical teams can design their own system and see each other’s data directly.
  • NO knowledge of the storage tables is needed by the clinical team to do analysis of their data.
  • All data or any subsets of data can be exported for use in other applications with a button press.
  • There is zero data lock-in.
