Nowadays, Information and Communication Systems Technologies are rapidly
expanding in order to fulfill the increased needs of our demanding modern
Information Society. More and more fundings are invested every year for the
development of new, innovative and technologically advanced Information Systems
that will be efficient enough to satisfy users’ requirements and be adaptive enough so
as to cooperate with the cutting‐edge aspects of IT and mobile technologies.

The first part of this paper will be dedicated to the current developments in the organisation
of patient care in hospitals, linked to the importance of a process oriented hospital
information system. In the second part the consequences of an implementation process on
the hospital structure will be analysed. Finally the basic functionalities necessary for an
optimal process oriented hospital information system will be described.
After a successful MEDINFO in 1992, the Swiss Society for Medical Informatics hosts
again a major event in medical informatics – the 19
Medical Informatics Europe Conference,
under the generic name of MIE2005. The host city, Geneva, is well known for its
commitment in international healthcare, being the residence of several international organisations,
including WHO. Geneva is also synonym with other major medical informatics
achievements: the DIOGENE hospital information system and Natural Language Processing,
both strongly connected to Geneva and its University Hospital...
Infections. During infancy, a number of viruses have been
associated with the inception of the asthmatic phenotype.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and parainfluenza virus
produce a pattern of symptoms including bronchiolitis that
parallel many features of childhood asthma53,54. A number
of long-term prospective studies of children admitted to the
hospital with documented RSV have shown that
approximately 40% will continue to wheeze or have
asthma into later childhood53.
Healthcare and healthcare delivery are currently undergoing major changes worldwide as they are increasingly
being transformed through the application of technology. Over the past several decades a wide
variety of information technologies have been deployed within an ever increasing variety of healthcare
settings (ranging from clinical to hospital, community and home settings) in an effort to streamline and
modernize healthcare delivery.
Other peculiarities of the sites are
that the systems are updated frequently, that advertising is not a source for funding and that the
Publication of personal information is dependent from a personal written agreement, for example, for
the member list of AIG. The principles of the Health-On-the-Net-Foundation (HON) are implemented
by both websites.
Electrical Design manual for hospitals includes general requirement; raceways, wiring and equipment; receptacle and power requirements; essential and standby electrical power systems; electrical power distribution; lighting; telecommunications systems; information technology rooms requirements; specal medical and alarm systems.
In 2009, local governments owned 78% of all hospital beds, almost 20% of
which were in Budapest. Hungary has followed the general European trend
of reducing the number of acute hospital beds, both through real reductions
and through bed reallocations to different types of services. The capacity
for long-term nursing care in both the inpatient and outpatient setting is
still considered insufficient and thus unable to meet the needs of the ageing
population. In general, the average length of stay and hospital admission rates
have decreased since 1990, as have bed occupancy rates. ...
In almost all Western countries, health care is in a state of radical transformation.
How can we meet the needs and demands of increasingly empowered
‘consumers’, contain costs, incorporate ‘evidence based’ modes of working, and
re-motivate health care professionals—and all at the same time? The health care
systems in Western countries are usually compared and contrasted along their
axes of difference: nationalized versus fully market-driven; tax-based versus
insurance-based financing; ‘gatekeeping’ general practitioners versus self-referral
to hospital care....
N OT E You might be asking yourself, “What is an enterprise software system, anyway?” Some popular enterprise software systems include SAP, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and Baan. These systems are used in all types of organizations to run the business more efficiently and effectively. Hospitals use medical information systems to track a patient’s vital data and health care history.
Digital convergence between audiovisual media, high-speed networks and
smart devices is a reality. Multimedia informatics is a key enabling technology
in this process. It helps make media content more directly manageable
by computers, in an age where new information stored on paper, film, magnetic and
optical media is reckoned to double every three years.
What will be the benefits? Digital convergence presents new opportunities for businesses
to unlock new markets, and for public bodies to improve the way they work.
What would you do if a dermatopathology laboratory offered to pay 85% of the cost
of an expensive electronic health record system for your practice? What if a patient
asked you to accept an invitation to become a Facebook friend? What would you do
if you saw a lesion you suspected might be melanoma on the back of a stranger getting
dressed two lockers over at the gym? And, what would you do if one of your
associates began to exhibit early signs of dementia?
Tuberculosis remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in low-resource countries.
One contagious patient can infect 10 to 20 contacts in these settings. Delays in diagnosing TB therefore contribute
to the spread of the disease and sustain the epidemic.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess delays in diagnosing tuberculosis and the factors associated with
these delays in the public hospitals in Moundou and Ndjamena, Chad.
The presentation of essential data concerning vitamines to succeeding groups of students has become
increasingly difficult with the development of research in this field. The literature itself has assumed a bulk
that precludes sending the student to original sources except in those instances when they are themselves to
become investigators. The demand on the part of the layman for concise information about the new food
factors is increasing and worthy of attention.
We register all deaths in Coos County, using the automated OVERS system, and forward the
information to the state, as required by administrative rules. Births are now registered by the hospitals
directly with the state through the automated system. Three deputy registrars are available to provide
birth and death certificates within 24 hours of request, and often can respond immediately to walk-in
requests for certificates.
Boston Children’s Hospital Library’s Resources for Leadership Guide brings together materials found at the hospital library and reputable web sites for managers from all walks of Boston Children’s. The Resources for Leadership Guide includes lists of management books and journals available from the library as well as useful databases, leadership associations, and information about health care reform from the New England Journal of Medicine.
Overall, the strength of evidence for specific design features in these interventions was low or insufficient. This is attributable, in large part, to differences in the types of interventions and, subsequently, in the mix of results. Looking closely within categories of design features, however, the following specific design features seemed to improve comprehension for low-health-literacy populations in one or a few studies: (1) presenting essential information by itself (i.e.
The Ohio Blood Center (OBC) was formed in 1979 and collects and distributes more than 100,000 units of blood and plasma annually. The non-profit organization serves more than 40 hospitals in nearly 35 countries throughout Lowa, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. To achieve its long-term growth objectives, OBC’s management team knew, it had to streamline business processes by incorporating a sales management system. This system will track all the blood bookings, the stock information, sales statistics, and counter details.
