Patient safety has become an important theme of the research agenda in the course of
the last decade, both throughout Europe and worldwide. Improving patient safety and
the quality of healthcare poses many challenges, and information technology (IT) has
always been seen as having the potential to support the measures necessary to address
these. But the risk of adverse events is unfortunately rising alongside the increasing
sophistication and maturity of the health IT systems incorporated into the hospital environment.
One major source of such errors is related to medication, i.e.
Large EHR research databases are the key development that makes it possible to create a rapid learning health system. The VA and Kaiser Permanente are the public and private sector leaders; their new research databases each have more than 8 million EHRs. They are likely to add genomic information.
Large EHR research databases are the key development that makes it possible to create a rapid learning health system. The VA and Kaiser Permanente are the public and private sector leaders; their new research databases each have more than 8 million EHRs. They are likely to add genomic information. New networks with EHR databases—“virtual research organizations”—add even more to these capacities.
The absence of coordinated systems for data collection and record-keeping and the
maintenance of databases for the livestock sector, including a mechanism for feedback and
exchange among the stakeholders for development of livestock-related policies have been
identified as a major constraint for many countries in SAP. Such data recording, even on a
limited scale, is critical for genetic improvement of livestock.
A qualitative focus group study with a total of 37 general
practitioners (GPs) was conducted. To reflect the German
speaking and the French speaking part of Switzerland, the
focus groups were conducted in both areas. Of the five fo-
cus group interviews, three were conducted in Zurich with
GPs working in and around Zurich. Two focus group inter-
views were conducted in Geneva with GPs working in and
around Geneva. All focus groups were composed of six to
nine GPs. GPs were recruited by sending a letter to a ran-
dom sample of GPs from an existing address database.
The sample of M&As is collected from the Securities Data Corporation’s (SDC) US Mergers
and Acquisitions Database. We select both completed and withdrawn domestic M&As with
announcement dates between 1980 and 2003, and require both the acquirer and the target to be
public firms. We include only acquisitions in which the acquiring firms control less than 50% of
the shares of the target firms before acquisition announcements.
Over a century ago, with the work of Alexander Graham Bell, the motivation underlying
the first use of the telephone in communication had a health-related origin: a
doctor attempted to be in contact with his deaf mother and sister. Early developments
in electronic patient records took place over 40 years ago through the pioneering
work of Ed Hammond and his interest in community and family medicine. Very
soon, the European Union will be celebrating a 20-year history of co-financing
eHealth research and development initiatives.
