Rapidly changing business environments and evolving processes increase the uncertainties in IS development. To produce a high-quality system that responds to user needs is challenging. We attempted to determine whether user reviews during the development process could reduce uncertainties and improve the product. Technology structuration theory indicated(More)
BACKGROUND Injury is the most common diagnostic category in the emergency unit, but no survey of epidemiological data for trauma or orthopaedic fractures has been made to date in Taiwan. A nationwide study of orthopaedic injuries is therefore necessary and would be of benefit to the Taiwanese population. METHODS A qualified dataset, provided by a(More)
Electromagnetism-like algorithm (EM) is a population-based metaheuristic which has been proposed to solve continuous problems effectively. In this paper, we present a new meta-heuristic that uses the EM methodology to solve the single machine scheduling problem. Single machine scheduling is a combinatorial optimization problem. Schedule representation for(More)
PURPOSE Negative life events, such as the death of a family member, an argument with a spouse or the loss of a job, play an important role in triggering depressive episodes. Therefore, it is worthwhile to develop psychiatric services that can automatically identify such events. This study describes the use of association language patterns, i.e., meaningful(More)
BACKGROUND How to decide the proper time to do laparotomies for acute appendicitis patients is sometimes very difficult, especially in areas with no imaging diagnostic tools. The Alvarado scoring system (ASS) is a convenient and inexpensive decision making tool; however, its accuracy needs to be improved. The decision tree is the most frequently used data(More)
INTRODUCTION Length of stay (LOS) in the intensive care unit (ICU) of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH) patients is one of the most important issues. The disease severity, psychosocial factors, and institutional factors will influence the length of ICU stay. This study is used in the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) to(More)
This study theoretically analyzes and numerically explores the relationship between the physiological data and three diabetic microvascular complications: diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy, and diabetic neuropathy (foot problem). Method: The analysis results of 8,736 diabetic patients in northern Taiwan by using two data mining models: C5.0 and(More)
