The limited use of digital ink in the private-sector primary care physician's office. (1/683)

Two of the greatest obstacles to the implementation of the standardized electronic medical record are physician and staff acceptance and the development of a complete standardized medical vocabulary. Physicians have found the familiar desktop computer environment cumbersome in the examination room and the coding and hierarchic structure of existing vocabulary inadequate. The author recommends the use of digital ink, the graphic form of the pen computer, in telephone messaging and as a supplement in the examination room encounter note. A key concept in this paper is that the development of a standard electronic medical record cannot occur without the thorough evaluation of the office environment and physicians' concerns. This approach reveals a role for digital ink in telephone messaging and as a supplement to the encounter note. It is hoped that the utilization of digital ink will foster greater physician participation in the development of the electronic medical record.  (+info)

Improving clinician acceptance and use of computerized documentation of coded diagnosis. (2/683)

After the Northwest Division of Kaiser Permanente implemented EpicCare, a comprehensive electronic medical record, clinicians were required to directly document orders and diagnoses on this computerized system, a task they found difficult and time consuming. We analyzed the sources of this problem to improve the process and increase its acceptance by clinicians. One problem was the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) as our coding scheme, even though ICD-9 is not a complete nomenclature of diseases and using it as such creates difficulties. In addition, the synonym list we used had some inaccurate associations, contributing to clinician frustration. Furthermore, the initial software program contained no adequate mechanism for adding qualifying comments or preferred terminology. We sought to address all these issues. Strategies included adjusting the available coding choices and descriptions and modifying the medical record software. In addition, the software vendor developed a utility that allows clinicians to replace the ICD-9 description with their own preferred terminology while preserving the ICD-9 code. We present an evaluation of this utility.  (+info)

Contrasting views of physicians and nurses about an inpatient computer-based provider order-entry system. (3/683)

OBJECTIVE: Many hospitals are investing in computer-based provider order-entry (POE) systems, and providers' evaluations have proved important for the success of the systems. The authors assessed how physicians and nurses viewed the effects of one modified commercial POE system on time spent patients, resource utilization, errors with orders, and overall quality of care. DESIGN: Survey. MEASUREMENTS: Opinions of 271 POE users on medicine wards of an urban teaching hospital: 96 medical house officers, 49 attending physicians, 19 clinical fellows with heavy inpatient loads, and 107 nurses. RESULTS: Responses were received from 85 percent of the sample. Most physicians and nurses agreed that orders were executed faster under POE. About 30 percent of house officers and attendings or fellows, compared with 56 percent of nurses, reported improvement in overall quality of care with POE. Forty-four percent of house officers and 34 percent of attendings/fellows reported that their time with patients decreased, whereas 56 percent of nurses indicated that their time with patients increased (P < 0.001). Sixty percent of house officers and 41 percent of attendings/fellows indicated that order errors increased, whereas 69 percent of nurses indicated a decrease or no change in errors. Although most nurses reported no change in the frequency of ordering tests and medications with POE, 61 percent of house officers reported an increased frequency. CONCLUSION: Physicians and nurses had markedly different views about effects of a POE system on patient care, highlighting the need to consider both perspectives when assessing the impact of POE. With this POE system, most nurses saw beneficial effects, whereas many physicians saw negative effects.  (+info)

Computer support for recording and interpreting family histories of breast and ovarian cancer in primary care (RAGs): qualitative evaluation with simulated patients. (4/683)

OBJECTIVES: To explore general practitioners' attitudes towards and use of a computer program for assessing genetic risk of cancer in primary care. DESIGN: Qualitative analysis of semistructured interviews and video recordings of simulated consultations. PARTICIPANTS: Purposive sample of 15 general practitioners covering a range of computer literacy, interest in genetics, age, and sex. INTERVENTIONS: Each doctor used the program in two consultations in which an actor played a woman concerned about her family history of cancer. Consultations were videotaped and followed by interviews with the video as a prompt to questioning. MAIN OUTCOME MESURESs: Use of computer program in the Consultation. RESULTS: The program was viewed as an appropriate application of information technology because of the complexity of cancer genetics and a sense of "guideline chaos" in primary care. Doctors found the program easy to use, but it often affected their control of the consultation. They needed to balance their desire to share the computer screen with the patient, driven by their concerns about the effect of the computer on doctor-patient communication, against the risk of premature disclosure of bad news. CONCLUSIONS: This computer program could provide the necessary support to assist assessment of genetic risk of cancer in primary care. The potential impact of computer software on the consultation should not be underestimated. This study highlights the need for careful evaluation when developing medical information systems.  (+info)

Use of MEDLINE by rural physicians in Washington state. (5/683)

Studies have suggested that rural physicians do not use MEDLINE to aid their clinical decision making, and yet rural physicians appear to be a group that would benefit greatly from the use of MEDLINE because of their isolation from libraries and colleagues. This study was undertaken to understand why a population so likely to benefit from the use of MEDLINE is not using it. The study confirmed that rural physicians regard colleagues, reference texts, and journal articles as the most important information sources. However, a surprising number of rural generalist physicians in Washington, 40 percent of respondents, use MEDLINE, and most possess the requisite awareness, resources, and ability to use MEDLINE. Of those who use MEDLINE, 70 percent consider it a valuable clinical tool.  (+info)

Influence of case and physician characteristics on perceptions of decision support systems. (6/683)

OBJECTIVE: This study examines how characteristics of clinical cases and physician users relate to the users' perceptions of the usefulness of the Quick Medical Reference (QMR) and their confidence in their diagnoses when supported by the decision support system. METHODS: A national sample (N = 108) of 67 internists, 35 family physicians, and 6 other U.S. physicians used QMR to assist in the diagnosis of written clinical cases. Three sets of eight cases stratified by diagnostic difficulty and the potential of QMR to produce high-quality information were used. A 2 x 2 repeated-measures analysis of variance was used to test whether these factors were associated with perceived usefulness of QMR and physicians' diagnostic confidence after using QMR. Correlations were computed among physician characteristics, ratings of QMR usefulness, and physicians' confidence in their own diagnoses, and between usefulness or confidence and actual diagnostic performance. RESULTS: The analyses showed that QMR was perceived to be significantly more useful (P < 0.05) on difficult cases, on cases where QMR could provide high-quality information, by non-board-certified physicians, and when diagnostic confidence was lower. Diagnostic confidence was higher when comfort with using certain QMR functions was higher. The ratings of usefulness or diagnostic confidence were not consistently correlated with diagnostic performance. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that users' diagnostic confidence and perceptions of QMR usefulness may be associated more with their need for decision support than with their actual diagnostic performance when using the system. Evaluators may fail to find a diagnostic decision support system useful if only easy cases are tested, if correct diagnoses are not in the system's knowledge base, or when only highly trained physicians use the system.  (+info)

DESIGN: Randomised trial with three groups. Data collected at start of radiotherapy, one week later (when information provided), three weeks later, and three months later. PARTICIPANTS: 525 patients started radical radiotherapy; 438 completed follow up. INTERVENTIONS: Two groups were offered information via computer (personalised or general information, or both) with open access to computer thereafter; the third group was offered a selection of information booklets. OUTCOMES: Patients' views and preferences, use of computer and information, and psychological status; doctors' perceptions; cost of interventions. RESULTS: More patients offered the personalised information said that they had learnt something new, thought the information was relevant, used the computer again, and showed their computer printouts to others. There were no major differences in doctors' perceptions of patients. More of the general computer group were anxious at three months. With an electronic patient record system, in the long run the personalised information system would cost no more than the general system. Full access to booklets cost twice as much as the general system. CONCLUSIONS: Patients preferred computer systems that provided information from their medical records to systems that just provided general information. This has implications for the design and implementation of electronic patient record systems and reliance on general sources of patient information.  (+info)

Housestaff attitudes toward computer-based clinical decision support. (8/683)

OBJECTIVE: To measure housestaff attitudes towards computer-based decision support and their threshold for having CDSS messages displayed. DESIGN: 770 self-administered surveys were distributed to housestaff physicians. RESULTS: 209 surveys were returned. 63% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that CDSS would improve quality of care, while 52% agreed or strongly agreed that it would decrease adverse drug events. Respondents were neutral regarding the impact of CDSS on productivity and on their autonomy. Sixty percent approved of a reminder to consider surgical consultation in a patient with abdominal pain, while 88% approved of alerts about hypokalemia. Respondents felt both reminders should be triggered when their PPV exceeded 67%. Attitudes toward POE correlated positively with attitudes toward CDSS (Pearson's rho 0.56; p < 0.0001). Respondents who were dissatisfied with POE had a higher threshold PPV for seeing reminders. CONCLUSION: The majority of housestaff favor the implementation of a CDSS. Housestaff with favorable POE experiences were more likely to endorse CDSS, and those with negative POE experience were more likely to oppose it. The results suggest that a carefully designed CDSS with rules constructed to exceed a threshold PPV would be accepted by housestaff.  (+info)

Business Intelligence (BI) has become an essential part of the modern enterprise, and what used to be thought of as a luxury is now a matter of survival. Recent economic developments have forced companies to rethink their IT investment strategy. BI investments are now targeting the majority of people in the organisation instead of a select few. Thus, it is important to understand why users of a BI system choose to accept and use the system. Previous research has established the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) as one of the most powerful and parsimonious models explaining user acceptance and usage behaviour of information technologies. This quantitative study replicates the original TAM study with the purpose to increase the understanding of BI usage, and investigates the behaviour of the users of the BI system QlikView in the case company GE Healthcare. The results showed a lower explanatory power for the model when compared to previous research. This indicates that how useful a user perceives ...
This research investigates the applicability of F. Davis Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to OCR-based CAPTCHAs involved in a free e-mail accounts registration process. The results provide preliminary evidence that the model may be a useful tool for research focused on acceptance of CAPTCHAs. The results are especially interesting when it comes to the concept of perceived usefulness and its direct relationship to the concept of attitude toward use. This relation indicates a new area of research for CAPTCHA developers interested in improving usability and accessibility of these systems. ...

BACKGROUND: Although the factors that affect the end-users intention to use a new system and technology have been researched, the previous studies have been theoretical and do not verify the factors that affected the adoption of a new system. Thus, this study aimed to confirm the factors that influence users intentions to utilize a mobile electronic health records (EMR) system using both a questionnaire survey and a log file analysis that represented the real use of the system. METHODS: After observing the operation of a mobile EMR system in a tertiary university hospital for seven months, we performed an offline survey regarding the user acceptance of the system based on the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM ...
The survey has identified barriers to clinical use of ATs, but understanding them is fundamental to overcoming them. Much can be learnt from the wider field. For example, Reynaud (2008), proposed different models of acceptance (an attitude) and adoption (a process) of technologies from the fields of information systems and sociology [38]. These models can be applied to any technology type, but can also be specialised to individual technologies. Acceptance models, such as the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) [39, 40], suggests that when users are presented with a new technology a number of factors influence their decision about how and when they will use it, including "perceived usefulness" (the extent to which a person believes that using a particular system would enhance their performance) and "perceived ease-of-use" (the extent to which a person believes that using a particular system would be free from effort). This model, which has been updated several times [41-43], corresponds with the ...
Functionality and user acceptance testing can be performed in whatever environment you choose as long as the environment is used exclusively for one purpose at a time. We generally use four environments (development, test, user acceptance, and production). Development and test are used by the application developers to develop and test the application, while the user acceptance environment is used by business analysts to perform functional (system) testing followed by end-user acceptance testing then deployment to production. Sometimes an environment can be temporarily used for other purposes, for example the test environment can be used for functional testing and the user acceptance environment can be used for performance testing. The key is to choose a purpose for an environment and communicate this to everyone so that the environment can be isolated to allow proper testing without conflicts.. ...
Recently there has been a dramatic proliferation on the usage of social networking websites, blogs and other information systems that have a social orientation. However, there is limited research on what drives individual to use such information systems and moreover what are the outcomes of their usage. This paper develops and empirically tests a model of user acceptance of social information systems. Taking into account the particular characteristics of these systems, the proposed model has several features that extend technology acceptance literature. Firstly, instead of the behavioral intention as the key dependent variable, the rate and the variety of use are used in order to model technology acceptance based on the use-diffusion theory. Secondly, exploiting a relational perspective of user-technology interaction the concept of user stickiness with an information system is investigated as usage outcome. Finally, the concept of addiction tendency is proposed to be another outcome modeling the

Statistical analysis is a data based problem solving methodology. Quantifying a problem is a non trivial task translating reality into numbers. In this talk we will describe a methodology developed to handle the complexity of Enterprise System Implementations. We will focus on how to capture and analyze this complexity using the concept of patterns that lend them to statistical analysis. For a related approach to map patterns in statistical consulting see Kenett and Shade (2001).

Both the rapid advances in wireless technologies and the high proliferation rate of mobile communication services and artefacts have had a profound impact on industry, and are beginning to offer interesting and advantageous new services. In particular, the mobile transaction (m- transaction) system has emerged, enabling users to pay for physical and digital goods and services using their mobile devices whenever they want, regardless of their location. Although it is anticipated that m-transactions will enjoy a bright future, there is apparently still reluctance among users to accept mobile transactions, particularly in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, it is believed that usability is critical to the success and acceptance of mobile technology innovations in general, and m-transactions in particular. While most of the research into IT innovation acceptance is based on TAM (Technology Acceptance Model) and its many variants, the literature review reveals that there is little research on mobile application

Body posture and activity are important indices for assessing health and quality of life, especially for elderly people. Therefore, an easily wearable device or instrumented garment would be valuable for monitoring elderly peoples postures and activities to facilitate healthy aging. In particular, such devices should be accepted by elderly people so that they are willing to wear it all the time. This paper presents the design and development of a novel, textile-based, intelligent wearable vest for real-time posture monitoring and emergency warnings. The vest provides a highly portable and low-cost solution that can be used both indoors and outdoors in order to provide long-term care at home, including health promotion, healthy aging assessments, and health abnormality alerts. The usability of the system was verified using a technology acceptance model-based study of 50 elderly people. The results indicated that although elderly people are anxious about some newly developed wearable technologies, they

Software standards consist of certain terms, concepts, data formats, document styles and techniques agreed upon by software creators so that their software can understand the files and data created by a different computer program. To be considered a standard, a certain protocol needs to be accepted and incorporated by a group of developers who contribute to the definition and maintenance of the standard. Some developers prefer using standards for software development because of the efficiencies it provides for code development[1] and wider user acceptance and use of the resulting application.[2] For example, the protocols HTML, TCP/IP, SMTP, POP and FTP are software standards that application designers must understand and follow if their software expects to interface with these standards. For instance, in order for an email sent from Microsoft Outlook can be read from within the Yahoo! Mail application, the email will be sent using SMTP, which the different receiving program understands and can ...
The IT-systems in the Health Care section does not perform well since the user acceptance among the different professions is low. When IT-systems become unable to support health operators in their daily work, it can cause a variety of effects such as stress, lack of time and reduced patient safety. Hence we see that IT systems should be developed from the user point of view to be able to fulfill its function as a tool in health care. This paper intends to investigate how user involvement in system development projects in health care, can be developed. The study is based on interviews which aimed to map the current situation in health care. Based on this, we propose techniques and tools that can help providers and clients to improve user involvement when implementing new IT systems in healthcare..

Contents Title Page Number Mainframes 2 Midrange Computers 3 Personal Computers 4 Palmtops (Personal Digital Assistants) 5 Glossary Information Technology Coursework Mainframes Mainframes have been around for decades. They were the first systems to power businesses. They often took up extremely large spaces, were expensive to buy and required large amount of power and effort, using water-cooling or air conditioning systems to keep them at optimum temperature. Mainframes are multi-user systems. They allow many users, from hundreds to thousands to work at the same time on different tasks. Mainframes use the CISC instruction set. This stands for Complex Instruction Set Computer. It uses 18 different instruction formats, with system instructions being of variable length, 16bits, 32bits and 48bits. The instructions run directly between memory and the registers, and internally within the registers and the memory. Originally the x86 was had 64kb of RAM which was expandable to 640kb. As ...
A personal digital assistant (PDA) having a multi-positional handset is disclosed. A PDA has a base with a recessed handset cradle and a handset with a shape complementary to the configuration of the cradle. A power storage device is included within the handset and a power supply device is included within the base. For on-the-road use, the handset is configured to be removably secured within the cradle in a substantially flush configuration with the base. For office use, the handset is configured to be removably secured to the base in a substantially non-flush configuration that is easy for a user to grasp. The power storage device can receive power from the power supply device when the handset is in either a flush or non-flush configuration.
Similarly, Venkatesh et al. (2003) reviewed eight user acceptance models and then developed the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology. Their research model proposes that Performance Expectancy (perceived usefulness), Effort Expectancy (perceived ease of use), Social Influence (subjective norm) and Facilitation Conditions (control beliefs) have an influence on actual use. All these determinants have been addressed in the Combined Model. Research aim. The aim of this research was threefold. The first objective was to examine the influence of Grade 10 to 12 (16-18 years) physical science teachers behavioural beliefs, normative beliefs and control beliefs on their attitudes, subjective norm and perceived behaviour control respectively. The second objective was to determine the impact of teachers attitudes, subjective norm and perceived behaviour control on their intention to use PhET in their classrooms. Finally, their actual usage was compared with their intention to use PhET. ...

One impact is that the current generation of retirees will live longer and is arguably the first to have grown up with communication and automation technologies as an integral part of everyday life. As a consequence, there are significant opportunities to develop assistive technologies based around automation systems that provide both better quality of life and lower medical costs as user acceptance of the developed technologies will likely be high. Of critical importance is the engagement with the likely users during the development process to ensure that interfaces and social aspects are properly identified. Of particular relevance is the need to avoid overly intrusive approaches, by capitalizing on the embedded nature of suitable technology, and to undertake co-design with the target groups.. The opportunities for automation and ICT technologies then range from non-intrusive detection of incidents, subsequent intervention through partial or potentially complete mitigation of damage through ...
There are more than 5,300 hospitals around the country, and many more internationally, that are working to integrate varying levels of EMR systems and associated clinical technologies," said Mike Minear, chief information officer for UC Davis Health System. "For UC Davis to be in the top 1.8 percent is amazing. Its not possible to reach the Stage 7 level of EMR adoption without all of our clinicians and supporting teams working together, and effectively using advanced technology to help deliver the best in patient care." HIMSS Analytics developed its EMR Adoption Model as a way of evaluating the progress and effectiveness of electronic medical record systems for hospitals. The 8 stages (0 through 7) measure a hospitals implementation and utilization of information-technology applications to support clinical care. Stage 7represents an advanced patient-record environment, and to validate it requires a site visit by HIMSS officials, which took place in earlier this month.. "Stage 7 involves 139 ...

originally posted here. A company that produces antivirus software for computers says it has discovered the worlds first virus that targets the increasingly popular wireless hand-held computers. Although computer viruses have become common, including last springs virulent Love Bug virus, reports of viruses infecting the smaller personal digital assistants, or PDAs, had previously proved unfounded. This time, however, this is not a false alarm, said Vincent Gullotto, director of
Development of higher-voltage electrical systems in vehicles has been slowly progressing over the past few decades. However, tightening vehicle efficiency and emissions regulations and increasing demand for onboard electrical power means that higher voltages, in the form of supplemental 48 V subsystems, may soon be nearing production as the most cost-effective way to meet regulations. The displacement of high-wattage loads to more efficient 48 V networks is expected to be the next step in the development of a new generation of mild hybrid vehicles. In addition to improved fuel economy and reduced emissions, 48 V systems could potentially save costs on new electrical features and help better address the emerging needs of future drivers. Challenges to 48 V system implementation remain, leading to discussions by experts from leading car makers and suppliers on the need for an international 48 V standard. Initial steps toward a proposed standard have already been taken ...
