Price: $39.95
In the context of Health informatics, CCOW or Clinical Context Object Workgroup is an HL7 standard protocol designed to enable disparate applications to synchronize in real-time, and at the user-interface level. It is vendor independent and allows applications to present information at the desktop and/or portal level in a unified way. CCOW is the primary standard protocol in healthcare to facilitate a process called "Context Management." Context Management is the process of using particular "subjects" of interest (e.g., user, patient, clinical encounter, charge item, etc.) to 'virtually' link disparate applications so that the end-user sees them operate in a unified, cohesive way. Context Management can be utilized for both CCOW and non-CCOW compliant applications. The CCOW standard exists to facilitate a more robust, and near "plug-and-play" interoperability across disparate applications.

    Don't waste your money. This book has nothing to do with CCOW and Context Management. The author simple copied wikipedia pages for about 32 different healthcare subjects, such as HL7 and LOINC. The book is truly just a collection of wikipedia pages and nothing more. It doesn't even make an attempt to tie the various subjects together. The product description makes the book appear as if it is about CCOW because the first "subject" in the book is CCOW. If you go to the wikipedia page for CCOW you'll see that the first 3 paragraphs match the book description word for word.
