Vital Sign Data Quality is essential for successful implementation of clinical decision support systems in emergency care. Studies have shown that data quality is inadequate and needs improvement. This study shows that data quality is dependent on both technical and human factors and provides a conceptual model of data quality governance and improvement in the emergency department.
This study aims to investigate the use of theory in mobile health interventions for patient self-management of chronic conditions, with a focus on hypertension. We identified six theories in ten studies that were reviewed. These included Health Belief Model, Social Cognitive Theory, Self-Determination Theory, Theory of Planned Behavior, Transtheoretic Model, and Technology Acceptance Model. The findings are useful for further advancement of mobile health interventions to support chronic disease management.

There has been a significant increase in the volume of research conducted on patient portals in recent years. Similarly, there has been a number of benefits described in the literature when patients are engaged in research at all stages. This poster will provide an overview of three ways that patients can be engaged in patient portal research. The methods are based on those used in mental health patient portal research in Canada.
In order to develop more persuasive messaging to promote help-seeking for depression, we created six, differently designed visual messages and tested their effectiveness with possible audience members. Different visual designs brought differences in emotional responses to the message and willingness to use the message. Help-seeking intentions for depression increased significantly after exposure to either the plain text message or the visual messages.
As a part of our research project (Beijing Social Science Foundation Project, No. 18XCB007), this study aims to provide an overview of the state of art of health information behavior study in China for the past decades. There were 43 studies that met our selection criteria, and they were reviewed regarding to their research objects, methods, and frequent research topics respectively, which provides guidance for future research in this area.
The purpose of this research was to record the differences in picture archiving and communication system (PACS) settings in hospitals. A questionnaire survey was conducted among 261 hospitals that used the PACS system in Japan. As a result, the image deletion method in the PACS server, and other rules were different among hospitals. Furthermore, these variations were dependent on settings of each medical institution. It seemed necessary to define standardized rules for safe image management.

With massive amounts of mobile health data generated by patients, there is a growing amount of research conducted to understand their impact on patient care. The MeSH heading for patient generated health data was established in early 2018, complicating searches for PGHD research prior to 2018. In conducting a search of scientific databases, keywords are presented along with their degree of representation in the literature to help inform future searches.
Significant efforts are being made to develop artificial intelligence technologies for health settings. In a health system that has been notoriously slow to adopt innovative technologies, it is important to consider the implementation of a new technology early in the development stage, especially one that will have added challenges of trust and transparency. To facilitate this process, an implementation framework for artificial intelligence technologies in clinical settings has been created.

Older adults are the largest consumers of health care, have the greatest number of chronic conditions, and generate the greatest amount of health data. Yet, information systems designed to aid health information management do not align with their needs and practices. We describe a process of identifying the personal health information management (PHIM) activities and objectives of older adults (60 years and older) from different residential settings.

Serious games have been used to increase the accuracy and usege of clinical guidelines during routine clinical practice. This document presents the development of a serious game called SIM-GIC, a video game designed to simulate virtual patients and evaluate the decision making of players based on computer-interpretable clinical guidelines. The system is currently being developed with a content focus on antenatal care guidelines, where a number of obstetric guidelines were coded in XML files.

Teaching soft skills for change management in healthcare organizations is becoming increasingly necessary, even more, when implementing health information systems (HIS). There is little evidence that these skills can be learned through online teaching environments. This paper describes the experience of having taught soft skills to health informatics master’s degree students, through blended learning environments.

The Electronic Health Record used in the public primary care network of Buenos Aires City has a specific module for the vaccines registration. The present study explores the factors of EHR adoption by nurses. We found 5 barriers and one facilitator for adoption. Barriers are related with organize the flow of patients especially during vaccine campaigns, adapt the work stations and integrate the records with the vaccine central program.
We compared in-person and online training in a statewide education program to disseminate HIV, HCV, and STD clinical evidence. In a study period of three months, 250 clinicians completed four training courses delivered in dual formats. Course evaluation was positive regarding useful information, easy comprehension, knowledgeable trainer, appropriate format, knowledge increase, intention to use knowledge, and plan to change practice. Online training became a preferred format by clinicians when compared to in-person training (p=0.01).
Family health history (FHx) is vital in early detection of genetic diseases. This research studied two different FHx collection interface and compared them based on the IBM CSUQ usability metrics. We found the conversational interface to be significantly better in terms of overall satisfaction, system usefulness, interface quality and information quality than the traditional interface.
Recently, visualizing location of people and things in a hospital has become an issue particularly for improving work efficiency and incident prevention. Although radio frequency waves such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are commonly used in indoor positioning, they have several limitations owing to their physical characteristics. We proposed in-hospital hybrid positioning technique, involving a combination of radio waves and geomagnetic fingerprinting techniques. We compared accuracy of proposed technique with that of Wi-Fi- and BLE-based techniques.
Previous literature has revealed that patients have difficulty making sense of their clinical data. To address this barrier, we first need to understand what kinds of support that patients may seek. In this study, we analyzed question posts and their replies in a social Q&A community to understand what types of support people are providing to and receiving from the community and what contextual information they provide in order to elicit relevant answers.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. Low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for lung cancer screening (LCS) can reduce lung cancer deaths by 20% compared to chest x-rays. Nevertheless, the uptake of LDCT is low for high-risk smokers. In this study we used Twitter data to understand laypeople’s emotions towards LCS, find topics on LCS-related tweets, and assess the impact of promotional information on laypeople’s discussions.
