Proteus Intelligent Processes is a set of tools based upon the Proteus model and the GreEd rule authoring system. Proteus (PROcesses and Transactions Editable by USers) is a software technology that allows creating clinical processes in which clinical intelligence is embedded. These processes can then be executed to provide guidance to the clinicians about individual patients. The main advantage of Proteus is that the processes can be edited even by non-programmers, with the use of appropriate tools. The processes and components can be stored in a library and can be reused to create other processes. GreEd is the foundation of a full-fledged business rules management system (BRMS). Ease of editing is its key strength. These tools are linked with electronic medical record systems and clinical information systems.
Mistletoe is a JUnit extension intended for integration testing. In technical terms, it is a JUnit test suite runner presenting the test results via HTTP as a Web page. Mistletoe, when incorporated within an application, will help diagnose integration issues. For example, an application that runs perfectly in the developer's environment may not run properly in the production environment due to configuration errors and connectivity issues. Instead of perusing log files, or looking at stack traces, mistletoe will run a user-specified series of tests and present the results in the form of a Web page served by the application itself. Since the tests are run within the context of the deployed application, given an appropriate test suite, you can home in on integration problems quickly and conveniently.
