Service-oriented medical device architectures make the progress from interdisciplinary research projects to international standardisation: A new set of IEEE 11073 proposals shall pave the way to industry acceptance. This expected availability of device observations in a standardised representation enables secondary usage if interoperability with clinical(More)
Unreconciled data structures and formats are a common obstacle to the urgently required sharing and reuse of data within healthcare and medical research. Within the North German Tumor Bank of Colorectal Cancer, clinical and sample data, based on a harmonized data set, is collected and can be pooled by using a hospital-integrated Research Data Management(More)
In their first 15 years of life, about 1 800 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in Germany. Their chances of survival, however, have improved significantly over the last 40 years. In Germany alone, over 30 000 survivors of childhood cancer are presently living. Therefore, the late effects caused by the therapy occur ever more frequently as(More)
Reusing data from electronic health records to enhance clinical and translational research today is a prerequisite for establishing a learning health system. Many research groups have shown the potential of data warehousing and the creation of research databases to support feasibility studies, patient recruitment and data analysis/data mining. I2b2, SHRINE(More)
In many software systems to date, interactive graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are represented implicitly in the source code, together with the application logic. Hence, the re-use, development, and modification of these interfaces is often very laborious. Flexible adjustments of GUIs for various platforms and devices as well as individual user preferences(More)
OR.NET is the German national flagship project on networking of medical devices and information systems. Its objective is to define, implement and validate a standard-based integration solution for safe and dynamic networking of devices and systems in the operating room and its clinical surroundings. An important part of this project is to ensure semantic(More)
A standardized end-to-end solution has been implemented with the aim of supporting the semantic integration of clinical content in institution spanning applications. The approach outlined is a proof-of-concept design. It has shown that the standards chosen are suitable to integrate device data into forms, to document the results consistently and finally(More)
