  1. Implementing a bar-code assisted medication administration system: effects on the dispensing process and user perceptions.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 83(6):450 (2014) PMID 24717725

    We assessed the effects of a bar-code assisted medication administration system used without the support of computerised prescribing (stand-alone BCMA), on the dispensing process and its users. The stand-alone BCMA system was implemented in one ward of a teaching hospital. The number of dispensing s...
  2. Are three methods better than one? A comparative assessment of usability evaluation methods in an EHR.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 83(5):361 (2014) PMID 24583045 PMCID PMC4058821

    To comparatively evaluate the effectiveness of three different methods involving end-users for detecting usability problems in an EHR: user testing, semi-structured interviews and surveys. Data were collected at two major urban dental schools from faculty, residents and dental students to assess the...
  3. A sociotechnical perspective of health information technology.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(12):1133 (2013) PMID 24216291

  4. Sensor technologies aiming at fall prevention in institutionalized old adults: a synthesis of current knowledge.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(9):743 (2013) PMID 23845790

    We conducted a systematic search for studies that used sensor technologies with the aim to prevent falls in institutionalized geriatric patients. A total of 12 studies met the search criteria. Three randomized clinical trials reported no reductions in fall rate but three before-after studies reporte...
  5. Which barriers affect morbidity registration performance of GP trainees and trainers?

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(8):708 (2013) PMID 23453190

    Diagnosis coding percentages in the specialty training of general practitioners (GPs) are generally high, but not perfect, indicating barriers against coding still exist, possibly influencing the validity of data based on electronic patient records (EPRs). To study the relationship between barriers...
  6. Medication errors in residential aged care facilities: A distributed cognition analysis of the information exchange process.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(5):299 (2013) PMID 23026393

    Medication safety is a pressing concern for residential aged care facilities (RACFs). Retrospective studies in RACF settings identify inadequate communication between RACFs, doctors, hospitals and community pharmacies as the major cause of medication errors. Existing literature offers limited insigh...
  7. The effects of Computerized Provider Order Entry implementation on communication in Intensive Care Units.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(5):e107 (2013) PMID 23298435 PMCID PMC3624062

    We adapted an existing questionnaire developed by Shortell et al. to examine the impact of CPOE implementation on communication in a repeated cross-sectional design (6 months before implementation, 3 months after implementation and one-year after implementation). Results show overall that CPOE did n...
  8. Evidence for building a smarter health and wellness future--key messages and collected visions from a joint OECD and NSF workshop.

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(4):209 (2013) PMID 23117102

  9. Secondary use of routinely collected patient data in a clinical trial: An evaluation of the effects on patient recruitment and data acquisit...

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 82(3):185 (2013) PMID 23266063

    Clinical trials are time-consuming and require constant focus on data quality. Finding sufficient time for a trial is a challenging task for involved physicians, especially when it is conducted in parallel to patient care. From the point of view of medical informatics, the growing amount of electron...
  10. Examining the evidence of the impact of health information technology in primary care: an argument for participatory research with health pr...

    International Journal of Medical Informatics 81(10):654 (2012) PMID 22910233

    We use lessons learnt from existing health information technologies in primary care to inform the optimal design of newer developments such as personal health records? The results of systematic literature reviews about the impact of different information systems on health outcomes in primary care ar...
