Infobutton implementation can be either URL (REST) based or SOAP based. The information provided by the client system include patient characteristics such as age and sex, provider, care setting, clinical task and diagnosis. The OpenInfobutton project is an initiative led by the United States Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and the University of Utah that provides the infobutton manager that brokers the interaction between client information systems and online knowledge providers.
Understanding of Infobutton standard is important to Clinical information system developers, Clinical knowledge resource publishers and health care organizations such as regional clinical viewers. Several studies have demonstrated an increase in productivity for physicians with Infobutton adoption. Since infobutton standard is based on well-known protocols such as SOAP and REST, it is relatively easy to implement.
