In this paper, we present a clinical decision support system (CDSS) for the analysis of heart failure (HF) patients, providing various outputs such as an HF severity evaluation, HF-type prediction, as well as a management interface that compares the different patients' follow-ups. The whole system is composed of a part of intelligent core and of an HF(More)
BACKGROUND Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a serious cardiac condition that brings high risks of urgent hospitalization and death. Remote monitoring systems are well-suited to managing patients suffering from CHF, and can reduce deaths and re-hospitalizations, as shown by the literature, including multiple systematic reviews. METHODS The monitoring(More)
In this paper we describe an Heart Failure analysis Dashboard that, combined with a handy device for the automatic acquisition of a set of patient's clinical parameters, allows to support telemonitoring functions. The Dashboard's intelligent core is a Computer Decision Support System designed to assist the clinical decision of non-specialist caring(More)
This paper shows a method to get a patient tracking RFId solution, basing on a multilayer planning architecture. This approach is thought to guarantee that the found technical solution is as much as possible coherent to the very initial idea. Project aims, functional requirements and technical constraints are defined in order to arrive to an active RFId(More)
This work addresses the problem of reliable identification and tracking of children in an intensive care unit in a children's hospital. Tracking and identification of patients are critical for the clinical risk management process, particularly for a children's hospital intensive care unit where patients' identities can easily be confused. This work offers a(More)
Managing risks and taking steps to reduce risks at acceptable level are considered as strategic objectives for organisations in almost any application domain. It is widely recognised that a system-oriented approach is needed to effectively manage risks in complex and mission critical systems. Well-known standard approaches to risk management exist and some(More)
Technology management in healthcare must continually respond and adapt itself to new improvements in medical equipment. Multidisciplinary approaches which consider the interaction of different technologies, their use and user skills, are necessary in order to improve safety and quality. An easy and sustainable methodology is vital to Clinical Engineering(More)
Drug prescription and administration processes strongly impact on the occurrence of risks in medical settings for they can be sources of adverse drug events (ADEs). A properly engineered use of information and communication technologies has proven to be a promising approach to reduce these risks. In this study, we propose PHARMA, a web information system(More)
