Questions related to Health Information Systems
The impact of digital health technologies on healthcare system is becoming relevant day in day out and its adoption is making access to to patient care more easily accessible.
Introduction of deep learning into the security of EHR data is one of the areas that is being looked into, to ascertain better protection of these sensitive personal identifiable data.
Your input will help a lot to ensure great achievement of this project.
How to judge the correctness of the obtained information related to COVID-19 and how reliable are the various online sources of this information?!
What should/not we trust?! where to get information!?
I am looking into how we can determine the value of Health Information Systems investment as a basis of convincing the county government to invest in it.
However, there are no generally accepted valuation strategy that have been developed for information systems in either the business or health care domains.
I would appreciate theories around the above area.
A friend has saved data on punch-cards and now need to access the information on the cards. He would prefer to do this with a mechanical reader instead of an optical solution that is quite time consuming.
If you have a functioning reader or a fast optical solution please let me so and I will forward contact information.
I am looking for research subjects who can offer insights into the implementation of the EHR in Europe.
There is a number of the formulas for calculation of the cost-effectiveness of the projects, novel treatment modalities, surgery, drugs etc.
But how to calculate the cost-effectiveness of the diagnostic questionnaire?
How to retrieve the cost of analyses from the countries with the system of Health insurance? Should I take into account interests of the insurance companies?
Thank you all in advance for your answers.
Recently I had a horrible emergency experience where I cut my arm muscles in half due to a mistake with a wood cutting machine (I am recovering pretty well, thanks). The fact was I was taken to an emergency room and treated by a skillful doctor who tied the pieces of my muscles back. In the meantime I was asked, ONCE AGAIN, the same questions: are you allergic to such and such? are you diabetic? (all of this while I was loosing quite a lot of blood. And i was asking myself: I hace a 16 GB cel phone with lots of nice but useless photogaphs: Could not they have a device that would read my cell phone and take that info from there? Why is not that info attached to my cell phone?
May you know any useful papers that may describe the advances on this personal ID medical info system being adopted as a universal standard in your country or in any other country? Are there any sort of security issues that people are concerned about? Are there any present main obstacles to this sort of technology?
(if you have time please read my note in LinkedIn)

Health Literacy is defined as the ability to read and unerstand basic medical
and health information. According to several sources more than one third of the population in North America has no health / medical literacy. The outcomes are estimated at more than 100 bilion USD for the health care sector with additional
negative cosequences like : innability to understand inform concern documents,
innability to access and use adequate and proper health/medical info on the net
etc. The next generation should aquire this through school teaching programes
- What you dear fellows think about ?
What are the key issues that need to be addressed by a program to improve use of clinical data for health service management and clinical quality improvement? I theorise that it requires both the implementation of technological tools to provide better and wider access to the disparate stores of routinely gathered clinical data (eg EMRs, specialised clinical information systems) AND concurrent training of the broader clinical workforce in applied epidemiology/stats/informatics/data sciences to know how to start better using these resources. What do you think?
I am working on using ESB to integrate the health data sources, but need to know if there has been any existing system in this regards? What is the impact and is any organization working on this?
Having developed a light-weight repository for data, we went further to create paper forms for redundancy/backup. However, we still hope to collect the data in real-time, to the digital platform, yet in a cost effective way. We are limited in terms of real-time connectivity though and there is no central server. Looking at how best to allow offline data collection with subsequent syncing to a central location. Any ideas?
Tanzania health system is trying to include the spectacles provision as part of treatment in the eye field.
The aim is to describe the surgery intervention in a formal - mathematical way in order to make computer optimization of the procedure to reduce the traumatic effect and the surgery time.
Let's consider the surgery for the tumor excision (cutting out).
Most obviously, the first parameters for formalization is the space coordinates within the human body. And in case of operation, we need to have an entry point and a path (set of points) for the surgical instrument (knife) to be moved along in order to reach the tumor location. Also we need to have a set of points to describe the surface of the tumor to be cut out.
At the same time, there are should be description of the critical area for the knife to be avoided during the surgery.
Would like to hear your thoughts regarding the surgery formalization.
