OBJECTIVES Information technology is an essential tool to improve patient safety and the quality of care, and to reduce healthcare costs. There is a scarcity of large sustainable implementations in developing countries. The objective of this paper is to review the challenges faced by developing countries to achieve sustainable implementations in health(More)
Currently most Erlang programs contain no or very little type information. This sometimes makes them unreliable, hard to use, and difficult to understand and maintain. In this paper we describe our experiences from using static analysis tools to gradually add type information to a medium sized Erlang application that we did not write ourselves: the code(More)
We describe and document our experience from developing an AMD64 backend for the HiPE (High Performance Erlang) native code compiler. We consider implementation alternatives and critically examine design choices for obtaining an efficient AMD64 backend. In particular, we consider in detail how other functional language implementors can migrate their(More)
INTRODUCTION Nonattendance at scheduled outpatient appointments for primary care is a major health care problem worldwide. Our aim was to estimate the prevalence of nonattendance at scheduled appointments for outpatients seeking primary care, to identify associated factors and build a model that predicts nonattendance at scheduled appointments. METHODS A(More)
We propose a machine learning approach for semantic recognition and normaliza-tion of clinical term descriptions. Clinical terms considered here are noisy descriptions in Spanish language written by health care professionals in our electronic health record system. These description terms contain clinical findings, family history , suspected disease, among(More)
PURPOSE The intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) procedure has been associated with better laboratory and clinical outcomes in assisted reproduction technologies. Less information is available regarding the relationship between embryo aneuploidy rate and the IMSI procedure. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical(More)
The clinical decision support systems (CDSS) in general and those related to prescription systems in particular have the potential to reduce and prevent morbidity and mortality associated with adverse events and improve the quality of patient care. Most electronic health records (EHR) has CDSS used as support for clinical decision making. In the context of(More)
