The design and implementation of an open-source, data-driven cohort recruitment system: the Duke Integrated Subject Cohort and Enrollment Research Network (DISCERN). (2/18)

OBJECTIVE: Failure to reach research subject recruitment goals is a significant impediment to the success of many clinical trials. Implementation of health-information technology has allowed retrospective analysis of data for cohort identification and recruitment, but few institutions have also leveraged real-time streams to support such activities. DESIGN: Duke Medicine has deployed a hybrid solution, The Duke Integrated Subject Cohort and Enrollment Research Network (DISCERN), that combines both retrospective warehouse data and clinical events contained in prospective Health Level 7 (HL7) messages to immediately alert study personnel of potential recruits as they become eligible. RESULTS: DISCERN analyzes more than 500000 messages daily in service of 12 projects. Users may receive results via email, text pages, or on-demand reports. Preliminary results suggest DISCERN's unique ability to reason over both retrospective and real-time data increases study enrollment rates while reducing the time required to complete recruitment-related tasks. The authors have introduced a preconfigured DISCERN function as a self-service feature for users. LIMITATIONS: The DISCERN framework is adoptable primarily by organizations using both HL7 message streams and a data warehouse. More efficient recruitment may exacerbate competition for research subjects, and investigators uncomfortable with new technology may find themselves at a competitive disadvantage in recruitment. CONCLUSION: DISCERN's hybrid framework for identifying real-time clinical events housed in HL7 messages complements the traditional approach of using retrospective warehoused data. DISCERN is helpful in instances when the required clinical data may not be loaded into the warehouse and thus must be captured contemporaneously during patient care. Use of an open-source tool supports generalizability to other institutions at minimal cost.  (+info)

Leveraging standards to support patient-centric interdisciplinary plans of care. (3/18)

As health care systems and providers move towards meaningful use of electronic health records, the once distant vision of collaborative patient-centric, interdisciplinary plans of care, generated and updated across organizations and levels of care, may soon become a reality. Effective care planning is included in the proposed Stages 2-3 Meaningful Use quality measures. To facilitate interoperability, standardization of plan of care messaging, content, information and terminology models are needed. This degree of standardization requires local and national coordination. The purpose of this paper is to review some existing standards that may be leveraged to support development of interdisciplinary patient-centric plans of care. Standards are then applied to a use case to demonstrate one method for achieving patient-centric and interoperable interdisciplinary plan of care documentation. Our pilot work suggests that existing standards provide a foundation for adoption and implementation of patient-centric plans of care that are consistent with federal requirements.  (+info)

Practical challenges in the secondary use of real-world data: the notifiable condition detector. (4/18)

The interoperability specifications for electronic laboratory reporting specify the use of HL7, LOINC, SNOMED CT and UCUM. We explored the degree to which health care transactions comply with these standards by evaluating laboratory data captured in a health information exchange to support automated detection of public health notifiable diseases. We studied the NCD's ability to detect and report Lead, Influenza and MRSA. We found that due to incomplete LOINC mapping, alternate approaches such as keyword searches within local test names and codes could identify additional potentially reportable messages. We also found that non-adherence to HL7 messaging standards and inconsistently recorded laboratory results require the use of complex systems with complementary NLP techniques to accurately report notifiable conditions. We conclude that the incomplete adoption of and adherence to specified standards poses challenges to deploying processes that utilize real-world data for secondary purposes.  (+info)

ADEpedia: a scalable and standardized knowledge base of Adverse Drug Events using semantic web technology. (5/18)

A source of semantically coded Adverse Drug Event (ADE) data can be useful for identifying common phenotypes related to ADEs. We proposed a comprehensive framework for building a standardized ADE knowledge base (called ADEpedia) through combining ontology-based approach with semantic web technology. The framework comprises four primary modules: 1) an XML2RDF transformation module; 2) a data normalization module based on NCBO Open Biomedical Annotator; 3) a RDF store based persistence module; and 4) a front-end module based on a Semantic Wiki for the review and curation. A prototype is successfully implemented to demonstrate the capability of the system to integrate multiple drug data and ontology resources and open web services for the ADE data standardization. A preliminary evaluation is performed to demonstrate the usefulness of the system, including the performance of the NCBO annotator. In conclusion, the semantic web technology provides a highly scalable framework for ADE data source integration and standard query service.  (+info)

Evaluation of HL7 v2.5.1 electronic case reports transmitted from a healthcare enterprise to public health. (6/18)

Public health surveillance is necessary to prevent and control communicable and non-communicable diseases. An electronic reporting system using HL7 v2.5.1 was implemented between Intermountain Healthcare and the Utah Department of Health. We conducted prospective and retrospective studies to evaluate the timeliness, completeness of content information, and completeness of the electronic reporting process, and compared these metrics against other reporting entities. The electronic reporting system was more timely than other clinical reporting facilities and included more complete information in initial case reports. During a four month period, the electronic reporting system captured 8% of the cases not reported by the paper-based reporting system but missed 5% of the cases reported by the paper-based reporting system. We believe it would be more efficient for Infection Preventionists at hospitals to use their resources to detect cases not captured by the electronic reporting system instead of manually re-reporting cases already transmitted to public health electronically.  (+info)

Ubiquitous geo-sensing enables context-aware analyses of physical and social phenomena, i.e., analyzing one phenomenon in the context of another. Although such context-aware analysis can potentially enable a more holistic understanding of spatio-temporal processes, it is rarely documented in the scientific literature yet. In this paper we analyzed the collective human behavior in the context of the weather. We therefore explored the complex relationships between these two spatio-temporal phenomena to provide novel insights into the dynamics of urban systems. Aggregated mobile phone data, which served as a proxy for collective human behavior, was linked with the weather data from climate stations in the case study area, the city of Udine, Northern Italy. To identify and characterize potential patterns within the weather-human relationships, we developed a hybrid approach which integrates several spatio-temporal statistical analysis methods. Thereby we show that explanatory factor analysis, when applied
To take into account that a given word appearing in the context of different risk factors (medical concepts) can make different contributions towards risk level, we propose a multi-task approach, called context-aware linear modelling (CALM), which can be applied using appropriately regularised linear regression. In order to improve the performance for risk factors unseen in training data, e.g. rare diseases, we take into account their distributional similarity to other concepts ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We describe a platform for context-aware computing which enables applications to follow mobile users as they move around a building. The platform is particularly suitable for richly equipped, networked environments. The only item a user is required to carry is a small sensor tag, which identifies them to the system and locates them accurately in three dimensions. The platform builds a dynamic model of the environment using these location sensors and resource information gathered by telemetry software, and presents it in a form suitable for application programmers. Use of the platform is illustrated through a practical example, which allows a users current working desktop to follow them as they move around the environment.

An overview of why real-world data are pertinent to the safety assessment of paclitaxel-coated devices, with separate summaries of the projects investigating the late mortality signal via real-world data analyses.
Introduction:Service-oriented computing is a popular design methodology for large scale business computing systems. A significant number of companies aim to reap the benefit of cost reduction by realizing B2B and B2C processes on large-scale SOA-compliant software system platforms. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and Grid computing are two very pertinent fields that have received a significant and sustained research interest in terms of designing and deploying large scale and high performance computational resource sharing systems. P2P and Grids started as two different distributed computing philosophies which, however, nowadays tend to have a significant overlap: Grid computing represented a more business-oriented orchestration of relatively homogeneous and powerful distributed computing resources to optimize the execution of time consuming tasks whereas P2P networks had an emphasis on the discovery and sharing of resources on the edges of a heterogeneous network. Effectively, these two fields collectively form the
Parents of students at Langston Hughes School soon will get a chance to learn about standards-based grading directly from the administrator in charge of the system.. Angelique Kobler, director of curriculum and instruction for the Lawrence school district, is scheduled to address parents of third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students during a presentation from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 10 at the school 1101 George Williams Way.. The topic: Understanding Your Childs Progress Report.. The issue has been of intense interest recently, as several parents of current and former Lagnston Hughes students took their concerns about the system to the Lawrence school board. They objected to the districts decision to retain standards-based grading in conjunction with traditional letter grades for sixth-grade students, who now attend middle schools.. Some parents also wondered why traditional letter grades - A, B, C, D and F - no longer would be given to fourth- and fifth-graders this year, after such grades had ...

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract-Web processes are usually conceived and executed in highly dynamic environments, including unstable or initially unknown users requirements, preferences or behaviors, con-tinuously changing properties of interacting devices or physical components, etc. To address this dynamicity, service-based systems should be designed in a flexible way, allowing the possibility to model slightly different versions of the same service in relation to different possible execution contexts. Also, according to the autonomic computing vision, the process should be able to dynamically self-change its structure in order to reach successful termination, even if unexpected anomalies or context changes occur during execution. A design approach based on a semantic model for context representation and an extension of the OWL-S ontology are proposed to enrich the expressiveness of each section of a typical OWL-S semantic service description.
Wireless Internet access is an emerging technology which is growing rapidly, driven by communication and web-based services which are in great demand by American consumers. These technologies offer tremendous opportunities for increasing the independence of individuals with intellectual disabilities through the provision of personalized, real-time activity supports in a multitude of settings, including at school, in the workplace, at home and the community. While stand-alone prompting systems have proven to have great utility to individuals with intellectual disabilities, widespread adoption has been hampered by a significant barrier. Each of the existing prompting systems must be pre-programmed with the specific set of prompting instructions and copied to a specific device for use by the individual. Thus, a single device will only provide the necessary task support that can be anticipated for a particular individual ...
The simplest and best means to protect your application and your users from XSS bugs is to use a web template system or web application development framework that auto-escapes output and is context-aware. Auto-escaping refers to the ability of a template system or web development framework to automatically escape user input in order to prevent any scripts embedded in the input from executing. If you wanted to prevent XSS without auto-escaping, you would have to manually escape input; this means writing your own custom code (or call an escape function) everywhere your application includes user-controlled data. In most cases, manually escaping input is not recommended; well discuss manual escaping in the next section. Context-aware refers to the ability to apply different forms of escaping based on the appropriate context. Because CSS, HTML, URLs, and JavaScript all use different syntax, different forms of escaping are required for each context. The following example HTML template uses ...
Remember the good old days, when logging into your favorite web service (Geocities, anyone?) was a simple as entering a username and password? Back when things were simpler and safer.. Today the ante has well and truly been upped and service providers, not to mention users, are in a perpetual battle to keep data safe. And, of course, the easiest way to attack data is to use someones login credentials - kind of analogous to a thief walking into a house where the occupants helpfully left the door unlocked for them.

Data standards, also referred to as data models or data vocabularies, ensure a common understanding of data content and what it describes to data users; and help facilitate the smooth exchange of data. Standards ensure that data is published in a permanent, persistent and consistent way.. Data standards help give a common meaning to data. This is especially important when data is being used by a third-party, being integrated from different sources, or when data is being shared across public bodies. Data standards not only define the meaning of certain concepts, but also how concepts relate to each other, which facilitates data interoperability.. When publishing Open Data, international standards defined by reputable standards organisations, such as ISO, the European Commission, W3C, IETF, OGC and OASIS should be used if possible. If international standards are unavailable or unsuitable, use national standards. For specific topics such as geospatial, statistics, or health, use national standards ...
I attended a Big Data in Pharma conference recently, and very much liked a quote from Sir Muir Gray, cited by one of the speakers: In the nineteenth century health was transformed by clear, clean water. In the twenty-first century, health will be transformed by clean clear knowledge. This was part of a series of discussions and round tables on how we, within the Pharma industry, can best use big data, both current and legacy data, to inform decisions for the discovery, development and delivery of new healthcare therapeutics. Data integration, breaking down the data silos to create data assets, data interoperability, use of ontologies and NLP - these were all themes presented; with the aim of enabling researchers and scientists to have a clean, clear view of all the appropriate knowledge for actionable decisions across the drug development pipeline. A new publication describes how text analytics can provide one of the tools for that data interoperablity ecosystem, to create a clear, clean view. ...
The visual analog scale is among the most popular pain assessments which benefit research and medical care. The scale consists of a 10-cm line on which patients can rate their pain experience. The scale reveals good psychometric qualities and high compliance. With its numerous strengths, the visual analog scale can be implemented across various settings, such as childbirth, hip pain, etc. It can be used to assess pain progression and compare pain experiences between patients. This scale is also a valuable tool in the assessment of depression, appetite, and asthma. The digital version of the visual analog scale, in particular, can revolutionize pain assessment and treatment. Both the mobile and the laptop version of the scale improve user experience and data interoperability.. To sum up, as pain is a personal experience, pain assessment often challenges researchers and health providers. The selection of a reliable tool is paramount to improve pain assessment and treatment. Subjective instruments, ...

Chair: G.P.J. Verbong. Event Calender. Summary. Information Governance in Service-Oriented Business Networking. Competition in current business environments forces organizations to focus on their core competencies and outsource other activities. Organizations focusing on their core competencies collaborate with globally distributed business parties to provide products and services for customers. This highlights the importance of business networking for achieving competitive advantages. In this way, nowadays competition is between business networks (BNs) rather than between single organizations.. On the other hand, customers empowerment in globalized markets necessitates service orientation in BNs. Service orientation in BNs points out deep interactions with customers for value co-creation as well as dynamic and agile collaboration with suppliers to deliver mass-customized products and services. In this way, a service-oriented business network (SBN) is described as a collaborative ...
Chapter 12 discusses governance. TYPES OF GOVERNANCE We often discuss governance in terms of four different aspects of a services life cycle: ◆ Design-time governance - Policies and procedures to ensure that the right services are built and used ◆ Deploy-time governance - Policies that affect the deployment of services into production ◆ Run-time governance - Policies that affect the binding of consumers and providers ◆ Change-time governance - Policies and procedures that affect the design, versioning, and provisioning of service enhancements We have primarily discussed design-time and change-time governance as architectural requirements. The proper design of services is critical to achieving SOA goals, and models are the lingua franca of design. What is required is the design of service interfaces and 23 24 Part I ■ Understanding SOA implementations, and a way to pass those design models to development as specifications for construction. Of course, the more you can generate, the ...

There has been great progress in rare disease research, in big part thanks to the advocacy work of the rare disease patient community. Patients are already participating in research. And in some cases patients have taken the reins themselves to fund their own research.. However, the fact remains that there are over 6000 rare diseases, an estimated 30 million people living with a rare disease in Europe and 300 million worldwide, but no cures and few treatments available for the majority of these diseases. To help change this, patient involvement in research needs to be taken to the next level. Rare Disease Day 2018 offers participants the opportunity to be part of a global call on policy makers, researchers, companies and healthcare professionals to increasingly and more effectively involve patients in rare disease research. Great efforts are being made to take rare disease research to an international level. Only by doing so can we guarantee rare disease research will be truly effective. In ...

Text messaging has become fantastically popular for all types and ages of users. In health care delivery organizations clinicians eagerly grasp at text messaging to facilitate their workflow and care coordination with consultants, home care by nursing services and support for family caregivers. Facilitating clinician-to-clinician and clinician-to-caregiver communication about patients requires secure text messaging which meets HIPAA requirements including security of the message, an audit trail and confirmation of delivery and sender identity among other features. Even secure text messaging has its limitations for while patient context is maintained within a message thread and some vendors expose the entire care team to the message exchange, text messaging by itself conveys limited information to the recipient. It encourages an information-poor reactive response, rather than a well informed decision and reasoned action (practitioner order).. While text messaging has enabled clinicians to ...
Usually patients receive healthcare services from multiple hospitals, and consequently their healthcare data are dispersed over many facilities paper and electronic-based record systems. Therefore, many countries have encouraged the research on data interoperability, access, and patient authorization. This study is an important part of a national project to build an information exchange environment for cross-hospital digital medical records carried out by the Department of Health (DOH) of Taiwan in May 2008. The key objective of the core project is to set up a portable data exchange environment in order to enable people to maintain and own their essential health information. This study is aimed at exploring the factors influencing behavior and adoption of USB-based Personal Health Records (PHR) in Taiwan. Quota sampling was used, and structured questionnaires were distributed to the outpatient department at ten medical centers which participated in the DOH project to establish the information exchange

Data is at the epicenter of the transformation of U.S. healthcare to a consumer-centric ecosystem, primarily due to the multitude of participants who want to view what they need, when they need it, via the channel they prefer. Additionally, it all must be their information, and it must be accurate. Thus it has become imperative for all healthcare constituents to develop the ability to seamlessly integrate and share information for ease of consumption, use and dissemination. Participants in the healthcare ecosystem must also remain mindful of the stakeholders need for revenue growth from either profit dollars or medical reimbursement funds as they shift their focus to information sharing and ease of integration. Finally, this paper illustrates how this shift is taking place and the key components driving the move towards a patient-centric healthcare ecosystem.
