INTRODUCTION This article is part of a Focus Theme of METHODS of Information in Medicine on Health Record Banking. BACKGROUND Poor communication of health care information between health care providers (HCP) is still a major problem. One recent approach is the concept of Health Record Banking. OBJECTIVES With this report we want to introduce the Lower(More)
OBJECTIVE Multicenter medical treatment requires health related data to be available across institutions. Since health information exchange solutions are emergent, fulfillment of privacy needs, including patients' informed consent, is vital for successful data exchange. METHODS We designed a software supported consent process for the recently founded(More)
CONTEXT Integration of electronic signatures embedded in health care processes in Germany challenges health care service and supply facilities. The suitability of the signature level of an eligible authentication procedure is confirmed for a large part of documents in clinical practice. However, the concrete design of such a procedure remains unclear. (More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed primary care providers' perception of a health information exchange system (HIE) based on IHE XDS in the metropolitan area of Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, Germany. DESIGN An application enabling access to medical documents in an XDS Affinity Domain was developed. We examined usability and factors related to user acceptance. (More)

In order to professionally deal with HIS well-educated informaticians are needed. Because of these reasons, in 2001 an international course has been established: The Frank - van Swieten Lectures on Strategic Information Management of Health(More)
BACKGROUND Detailed Clinical Model (DCM) approaches have recently seen wider adoption. More specifically, openEHR-based application systems are now used in production in several countries, serving diverse fields of application such as health information exchange, clinical registries and electronic medical record systems.

Standard-based integration and semantic enrichment of clinical data originating from electronic medical records has shown to be critical to enable secondary use. To facilitate the utilization of semantic technologies on clinical data, we introduce a methodology to enable automated transformation of openEHR-based data to Web Ontology Language (OWL)(More)
In order to integrate operative report documents from two operating room management systems into a data warehouse, we investigated the application of the two-level modelling approach of openEHR to create a shared data model. Based on the systems' analyses, a template consisting of 13 archetypes has been developed. Of these 13 archetypes, 3 have been(More)
