The Clinical E-Science Framework (CLEF) project is building a framework for the capture, integration and presentation of clinical information: for clinical research, evidence-based health care and genotype-meets-phenotype informatics. A significant portion of the information required by such a framework originates as text, even in EHR-savvy organizations.(More)
The realisation of semantic interoperability, in which any EHR data may be communicated between heterogeneous systems and fully understood by computers as well as people on receipt, is a challenging goal. Despite the use of standardised generic models for the EHR and standard terminology systems, too much optionality and variability exists in how particular(More)
AIM To describe the development of a dementia research registry, outlining the conceptual, practical and ethical challenges, and to report initial experiences of recruiting people with dementia to it from primary and secondary care. BACKGROUND Women, the oldest old and ethnic minorities have been under-represented in clinical trials in dementia. Such(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective is to introduce 'clinical archetype' which is a formal and agreed way of representing clinical information to ensure interoperability across and within Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The paper also aims at presenting the challenges building quality labeled clinical archetypes and the challenges towards achieving semantic(More)
This paper describes the implementation of an Electronic Healthcare Record server inside a PostgreSQL relational database without dependency on any further middleware infrastructure. The five-part international standard for communicating healthcare records (ISO EN 13606) is used as the information basis for the design of the server. We describe some of the(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the paper is to establish the requirements and methodology for the development process of GreyMatters, a memory clinic system, outlining the conceptual, practical, technical and ethical challenges, and the experiences of capturing clinical and research oriented data along with the implementation of the system. METHODS The(More)
INTRODUCTION This paper presents work to define a representation for clinical research queries that can be used for the design of generic interfaces to electronic healthcare record (EHR) systems. Given the increasing prevalence of EHR systems, with the potential to accumulate life-long health records, opportunities exist to analyse and mine these for new(More)
ABSTRACT Motivation: Medical terminology mapping is a long-standing challenge for projects requiring retrieval, querying and integration of heterogeneous patient data. Current tools fail to fully utilise the richness of the underlying coding systems, and can be difficult to install and maintain. For example, National Library of Medicine’s UMLS provides a(More)
AIM To describe the requirements, development and evaluation of a cognitive disorders and older persons' clinical and research application, outlining the conceptual and practical challenges. METHODS A technology development methodology was used to develop a database of people being investigated for or diagnosed with cognitive disorders as well as their(More)
