An RFID solution for enhancing inpatient medication safety with real-time verifiable grouping-proof.
We review a recent proposal regarding a leading-edge solution to enhance inpatient medication safety by using RFID technology. The proof mechanism is the kernel concept in their design and worth studying to develop a well-designed grouping-proof scheme. Other RFID grouping-proof protocols could be s...
Development and evaluation of SOA-based AAL services in real-life environments: a case study and lessons learned.
The proper use of ICT services can support seniors in living independently longer. While such services are starting to emerge, current proprietary solutions are often expensive, covering only isolated parts of seniors' needs, and lack support for sharing information between services and between user...

Sensor technologies aiming at fall prevention in institutionalized old adults: a synthesis of current knowledge.
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...
Which barriers affect morbidity registration performance of GP trainees and trainers?
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...
Medication errors in residential aged care facilities: A distributed cognition analysis of the information exchange process.
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...
Evidence for building a smarter health and wellness future--key messages and collected visions from a joint OECD and NSF workshop.
Secondary use of routinely collected patient data in a clinical trial: An evaluation of the effects on patient recruitment and data acquisit...
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...
Examining the evidence of the impact of health information technology in primary care: an argument for participatory research with health pr...
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...
A Rasch model analysis of technology usage in Minnesota hospitals.
To identify whether the level of difficulty varied among various healthcare technologies. In addition, to examine the whether the degree of healthcare technology adoption was related to patient safety. The data on healthcare technology usage came from a survey of hospitals in Minnesota. There were r...
