- KonferenzbeitragBalancing of Benefits and Disadvantages using IT-integration to support the health care value-added chain(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Konrad, Walser; Peter, HaasThe implementation of national eHealth interoperability platforms is one answer to the problematic financial situation of health care systems in many places. Using IT-supported integration between IT systems and processes of health care institutions should make the health care value-added chain more effective and more transparent. This article will present the capabilities for interoperability in the integration of added-value in connection with the benefits and disadvantages, which arise from the various players (with diverse characteristics in some circumstances). A better consideration of the balancing of disadvantages or benefits of the IT-supported integration in health care value-added chain can lead to increased preparedness on behalf of the health care institutions to the development and financing of interoperability platforms.
- KonferenzbeitragCARA-D: Data Elements for a Computer based Cancer Risk Assessment System(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Yang, Gi-Chul; Oh, Haeng-UnData elements are important part of a computer based cancer risk assessment system. The selection of the data elements are more important for the system built based on Case Based Reasoning (CBR) technology. The system CARA is a computer based cancer risk assessment system that adapts CBR technology. The data elements and an overall architecture that can assure high performance of the CARA are described in this article.
- KonferenzbeitragA Comprehensive Modeling Language for Clinical Processes(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Faerber, Matthias; Jablonski, Stefan; Schneider, TobiasIn this paper we present a comprehensive modeling language for clinical processes that integrates requirements from the medical, organizational and economical dimension into a single clinical process model. The design of this modeling language is heavily influenced by the experiences we made when documenting the processes at several clinics in Germany. Thus, we introduce the features of this modeling language by examples. We show that extensibility is one of the key features of this type of domain specific language and describe the principle idea of its implementation in the second part of the paper.
- KonferenzbeitrageHealth and Tourism(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Heuwinkel, KerstinInternational tourist arrivals worldwide reached 842 million in 2006. Many travellers fall ill while being abroad. The WHO advises travellers to get information about the destination especially when they have been ill before. In case of illness information, e.g. about doctors and hospitals, and communication, e.g. with relatives or the family doctor, are important. Although the combination of eHealth and tourism suggests itself, neither information nor medical science answer the question which information people in case of illness while being abroad need and which media might be suitable. In this paper, we present a survey on information needs of travellers and the role of the internet. Furthermore, we studied the acceptance of mobile eHealth services and the willingness to pay.
- KonferenzbeitragEPR Access Authorization of Medical Teams Based on Patient Consent(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Eskeland, Sigurd; Oleshchuk, VladimirElectronic patient records (EPR) may contain highly confidential and personal medical information. It is therefore essential that medical data is properly protected and managed. Today, it is widely recognized that patients have a right to self- determination and to exert control of their own medical data by consent. In this paper, we present a cryptographic EPR access authorization scheme that incorporates patient consent as a basis for granting EPR access to medical teams or practitioners. This ensures that only the medical practitioners specified by a consenting patient are granted EPR access. If a patient is unconscious, the variation of the scheme allows an emergency or security team to act on behalf of the patient.

- KonferenzbeitragEvaluation of E-Learning Practices in Undergraduate Medical Education: Results of a Survey in Sri Lanka(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Edirippulige, Sisira; Marasinghe, Rohana B.; Smith, Anthony C; Fujisawa, Yoshikazu; Herath, Walisundara B; Jiffry, M T M; Wootton, RichardObjective: The present study investigates the knowledge, perceptions and the utilisation of e-learning modalities in medical education by the students in Sri Lanka. We also examined the potential barriers which may prevent the uptake of e-learning strategies in health and medical education. Methods: A questionnaire focusing on the knowledge, attitudes and expectations of medical students towards e-learning was distributed to all final year medical students (n=136) at the Faculty of Medicine, Sri Jayewardenepura University, Sri Lanka. The survey was conducted during their regular lectures and completed questionnaires were collected after their classes. Findings: 100 surveys (74%) were completed and returned. Nearly half of the respondents (43%) admitted that they were familiar with the term e-learning. Only 19% of respondents stated that they had used e-learning modalities for educational purposes. The majority of respondents said that they had not used web-based learning material or multimedia resources for medical education. However, more than half of (56%) respondents agreed that e-learning modalities would be useful tools in medical education and 49% said that e-learning must be expanded in medical education. Conclusions: Despite the majority of respondents believed that e-learning modalities can be a useful tool to address some of the problems in medical education in developing countries, a lack of technology and learning opportunities have restricted the potential benefits.
- KonferenzbeitragGoals and Challenges for the realization of a European wide eHealth infrastructure(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Thiel, Andreas; Eichelberg, Marco; Wein, Berthold; Namli, Tuncay; Dogac, AsumanA number of Electronic Health Record (EHR) standards and frameworks have been developed to assist with the interoperability and integration of distributed EHR information. Ideally, all EHR systems would adopt common and systematized hierarchies of component names, use multi-lingual clinical coding systems with perfect cross-mappings and use identical reference models for measurements. However, this has not been realized yet. Not only do a number of international health information standards exist, such as CEN EN 13606, HL7 and GEHR, but each country, state, division, hospital and vendor usually has their own “standard clinical data model”. Since it is not realistic to expect to have a single universally accepted clinical data model that will be adhered to all over Europe and that the clinical practice, terminology systems and EHR systems are all a long way from such a complete harmonisation. This paper presents some results of the RIDE project; a project that will address the interoperability of eHealth systems with special emphasis on semantic interoperability. The paper describes relevant goals for the development of the eHealth sector in Europe that have been identified in the project as common requirements for many eHealth applications and names the technical and organisational challenges accompanying these goals.
- KonferenzbeitragIntegrating Context Information in a Mobile Environment using the eSana Framework(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Savini, Marco; Stormer, Henrik; Meier, AndreasMobile devices are becoming ubiquitous in everyday’s life, their popularity and place independence are reasons for using these devices in different areas. One such area is electronic health, where patients can install small applications on their mobile devices that help or guide them in certain situations. The eSana framework offers a set of tools and approaches that allow the transmission of discrete physiological values electronically in order to evaluate them by medical experts. This paper presents an extension to this framework that includes the use of contextual information to improve eSana. The use case “Find nearby pharmacy” will illustrate a simple application that uses context information to guide the patient to the best pharmacy within his range. A second use case will enrich the existing idea of transmitting physiological parameters with context information.
- KonferenzbeitragMedical Opportunities by Mobile IT Usage – A Case Study in the Stroke Chain of Survival(European Conference on eHealth 2007, 2007) Holtmann, Carsten; Müller-Gorchs, Mercè; Rashid, Asarnusch; Weidenhaupt, Klaus; Ziegler, Volker; Griewing, Bernd; Weinhardt, ChristofMobile technologies are likely to reveal a high potential to improve the information exchange in medical treatment. Especially in emergency services, the use of these technologies can support the work of the regionally distributed actors. During the last years many projects dealing with innovative mobile systems were started as pilots but in most cases the concrete effects of their applications were neither analysed in detail nor were the solutions able to reach the status of operative systems. This paper presents a concrete application scenario of mobile IT in medical treatment, presents the results from especially a process analysis and discusses chances and risks that can be deduced from the case study.
