An efficient interaction between a doctor and an electronic health record (EHR) depends also on the visual layer of an EHR. As users with various backgrounds and needs have different perspectives on the same data visualization methods must be flexible to provide the optimal interface. The ISO 13606 community is interested in developing requirements on a… (More)
BACKGROUND When medical data have been successfully recorded or exchanged between systems there appear a need to present the data consistently to ensure that it is clearly understood and interpreted. A standard based user interface can provide interoperability on the visual level. OBJECTIVES The goal of this research was to develop, implement and evaluate… (More)
Lack of a proper infrastructure of health care providers leads to the breaks in the health care process Informatization. This results in the manifestation of different data entry point. The different data sets that are entered in these different points tend to serve the same task. However, due to the different qualification of staff a consistency of data… (More)
To enable the efficient reuse of standard based medical data we propose to develop a higher level information model that will complement the archetype model of ISO 13606. This model will make use of the relationships that are specified in UML to connect medical archetypes into a knowledge base within a repository. UML connectors were analyzed for their… (More)
Electronic health records are replacing conventional paper-based health records. For a doctor it is a working instrument, which can significantly reduce the time spent on paper work. Patients can benefit from accessing the electronic health records even though they usually do not have a medical background. Therefore, when specifying a graphical user… (More)

The paper presents the results of the development and implementation of an expert system that automatically generates doctors' letters based on the results of laboratory tests. Medical knowledge is expressed using a first order predicate based language. The system was implemented and evaluated in the Helix laboratory service.

Medical knowledge is expressed using a first order predicate logic based language. The system was implemented and evaluated in the Helix laboratory service.
To provide a better doctor-patient communication and to better involve patients into a diagnostic and treatment process we implemented a web portal for diabetes patients using open source libraries to present medical data. The medical data was "archetyped" according to the ISO 13606 standard. Visualization properties were defined using visual medical… (More)
