What is the Unicist Approach to Healthcare Businesses?

Ontogenetic Intelligence of Nature

The discovery of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature allowed defining the triadic structure that regulates any entity. It included the discovery of the complementation and supplementation laws. 

These discoveries established the groundings to develop the unicist double dialectical logic that underlies all systems in nature.

The use of the double dialectical logic made the emulation of the organization of nature possible, developing objects to install into human adaptive systems to make them faster, safer and reliable.

The unicist double dialectical approach to medicine allowed (*):

Pyramid of Ethical Intelligence1) Defining and managing diagnoses as adaptive systems and transforming them into medical objects integrating the triadic structure of cures, fundamental diagnoses and technical-analytical diagnoses.

2) Managing therapeutics as a complex adaptive system, integrating the triadic structure defined by cures, palliatives and recovery.

3) Managing the triadic structure of Health IT integrating software, hardware and peopleware.

4) Integrating the triadic structure of electronic records for medical practice, integrating EMR, HER and EPR.

5) Managing drugs as medical objects integrating their functionality with the adverse effects and the positive side effects.

6) Managing the triadic structure of patient centered management integrating the patient, medical practice and management.

7) Installing the Object Driven Organization Metamodel to materialize the Patient Centered Management.

8) Developing a unicist scorecard to monitor the metrics of the medical business activities.

(*) A condition to manage the unicist approach is to go beyond the use of dualistic logic and use the double dialectical logic in order to be able to emulate dynamic processes in mind. It implies leaving behind the use of the disjunction “or” substituting it by the use of the functional conjunction “and”.

Healthcare: the use of Unicist Adaptive IT Architectures

Adaptive IT solutions are systems that have been designed to interact with the external and internal environment. Nowadays, there are multiple programming solutions available to sustain the unicist adaptive architecture. The solutions include aspect objects architecture with unicist logical inferences to manage adaptiveness.

Adaptive IT ArchitectureThe evolution of Information Technologies allowed integrating the adaptive aspects of business management in the operational systems of hospitals.

The integration of the unicist logical approach and the resulting business objects included in the business processes within an adaptive IT environment allows driving business processes to the next level.

To be able to organize by objects it is necessary to use both adaptive and administrative systems to organize the work processes. This widened the possibilities of hospitals to expand the boundaries of their activities within an environment of assured quality.

There are four levels of adaptiveness that can be managed:

1) Analogical drivers

This level is based on the recognition of the significant behavioral patterns of the segments of patients.

2) Rules based drivers

This level is based on the use of analogical patterns and the logical rules defined by the fundamentals that influence the processes.

3) Empirical drivers

This level is based on the previous level and the integration of mathematical models to infer behavior based on the observable aspects of the fundamentals of the processes.

4) Objects based drivers

This level is based on the previous level plus the use of medical objects that work as interdependent drivers to influence the attitude of patients. The feedback is defined by the results produced by these objects.

The level of adaptiveness varies according to the needs of the system. Adaptiveness is based on the medical, therapeutics and disease segmentation.
