The integration of Information and Communication Technology into nursing

Lupiáñez-Villanueva F et al, International Journal of Medical Informatics, 18(1)

Objectives
To identify and characterise different profiles of nurses’ utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the Internet and to identify factors that can enhance or inhibit the use of these technologies within nursing.

Methods
An online survey of the 13,588 members of the Nurses Association of Barcelona who had a registered email account in 2006 was carried out. Factor analysis, cluster analysis and binomial logit model was undertaken.

Enhanced semantic interpretability by healthcare standards profiling

López, Diego M, and Bernd Blobel, eHealth Beyond the Horizon - Get IT There, 2008

Several current healthcare standards support semantic interoperability. These standards are far to be completely adopted in health information system development, however. The objective of this paper is to provide a method and necessary tooling for reusing healthcare standards by exploiting the extensibility mechanisms of UML, by that way supporting the development of semantically interoperable systems and components. The method identifies first the models and tasks in the software development process in which health care standards can be reused.

Value of the electronic patient record: an analysis of the literature

Uslu, Aykut M., and Jürgen Stausberg, Journal of Biomedical Informatics, 41(4)

We undertook a systematic review of the literature on the basis of published studies on the benefit and costs of Electronic Patient Records (EPRs) to clarify the issue of whether and to what extent the use of an EPR is worthwhile. We carried out a systematic electronic search for articles published between 1966 and early 2004 using MEDLINE, following up cross-references from the articles found.

Architectural Approaches to Health Information Systems for Empowering the Subject of Care

Blobel, Bernd, and Peter Pharow, Medical and Care Compunetics 5, 2008

The personal health paradigm puts the citizen in the health services business process center. This enhances the subject of care’s opportunities, rights and duties regarding his/her health status and the process for maintaining and improving it. First, the citizen and his/her direct environment have to become part of the health information systems network.

The Transition from ‘Informed Patient’ Care to ‘Patient Informed’ Care

Gardiner, Ruth, Medical and Care Compunetics 5, 2008

We are in the midst of a real change in the application of information technology to support the delivery of healthcare. We are seeing a shift from the ‘informed patient’ which has resulted from improved access to healthcare information, primarily from the Web, to the ‘participative patient’ as we move into Web 2.0 territory.

Realising the Knowledge Spiral in Healthcare: the role of Data Mining and Knowledge Management

Wickramasinghe N et al, Medical and Care Compunetics 5, 2008

Knowledge Management (KM) is an emerging business approach aimed at solving current problems such as competitiveness and the need to innovate which are faced by businesses today. The premise for the need for KM is based on a paradigm shift in the business environment where knowledge is central to organizational performance . Organizations trying to embrace KM have many tools, techniques and strategies at their disposal. A vital technique in KM is data mining which enables critical knowledge to be gained from the analysis of large amounts of data and information.
