    ABSTRACT: This paper outlines a quality assurance (QA) process and a multiple case, explorative, electronic medical records (EMRs) project in Ontario. The project, dedicated to Advancing and Leveraging the Investment Value of EMRs (ALIVE) was an eight-month investigation of improvements to EMRs in terms of the technical elements of patient records that could be optimized through data standardization and the social elements needed to integrate value into the everyday functioning of primary care (PC) organizations. We argue that standardized and structured data offer substantial clinical value in PC insofar as it enables more proactive chronic disease prevention and management (CDPM). While PC clinicians may have had the opportunity to look the other way with respect to enabling technologies in the past, imminent health system reforms demand more meaningful use of EMRs moving forward.

    ABSTRACT: Diabetes is a serious world-wide medical challenge and there is a recognised need for improved diabetes care outcomes. This paper describes results of the EMPOWER project, to foster the self-management of diabetes patients by integration of existing and new services offered to patients after having been diagnosed with diabetes. The Self-Management Pathway described in this paper helps patients in the specification of personalized activities based on medical recommendations and personal goals, as well as self-monitoring of the results. The whole process is supported by innovative ICT services that motivate patients to change their lifestyle and adhere to defined medication and activity plans. We describe the approach and present the findings of the validation phase in Germany and Turkey.

    ABSTRACT: While occupational health is a significant driver of population health, productivity, and well-being in Canadian society, most workers do not currently have adequate access to qualified occupational health services. A case study is used to demonstrate the utility of a telehealth approach to occupational health service delivery .

    ABSTRACT: In the context of the long-term care for older adults, informal carers play a key role. Daily competing priorities or a care-skills deficit may lead them to stress, anxiety and/or depression. The iCarer project (AAL-2012-5-239) proposes the design and implementation of a cloud-inspired personalised and adaptive platform which will offer support to informal carers of older adults with cognitive impairment. By means of a holistic approach comprising technologies and services addressing the intelligent and interactive monitoring of activities, knowledge management for personalised guidance and orientation, virtual interaction, e-learning, care coordination facilities and social network services, iCarer aims to reduce the informal carer stress and to enhance the quality of care they provide, thus improving their quality of life. The iCarer platform will be evaluated through a multi-centre non-controlled study (4 months; 48 homes located in England and in Slovenia). Currently the iCarer project is completing the development work. The evaluation trial is expected to start in August 2015.

    ABSTRACT: With the purpose of improving the access to departmental legacy information systems, a multi agent based Virtual Electronic Patient Record (VEPR) was deployed at a major Portuguese Hospital. The agent module (MAID) is in charge of identifying new data produced (reports), collecting and making it available through an integrated web interface. The deployed MAID system uses a static interval for checking the existence of new data, however from the gathered data regarding each department data production it is observable a variable rate throughout the day. In order to address this variability an adaptive model was developed and tested in a simulated environment with real data. The model takes in consideration the past report production profiles for determining a variable query frequency in order to reduce the average time to make data available minimizing the number of departmental requests.

    ABSTRACT: A new mark-up programming language is introduced in order to facilitate and improve the visualization of ISO/EN 13606 dual model-based normalized medical information. This is the first time that visualization of normalized medical information is addressed and the programming language is intended to be used by medical non-IT professionals.

    ABSTRACT: Ask the doctor services are personalized forums allowing patients to ask questions directly to doctors. Usually, patients must choose the most appropriate category for their question among lots of categories to be redirected to the most relevant physician. However, manual selection is tedious and error prone activity. In this work we propose to assist the patients in this task by recommending a short list of most appropriate categories.
