OBJECTIVES Identification and analysis of privacy and security related issues that occur when health information is exchanged between health care organizations. METHODS Based on a generic scenario questions were formulated to reveal the occurring issues. Possible answers were verified in literature. RESULTS Ensuring secure health information exchange(More)
This article describes the architecture of an EPR system developed for the PropeR project. This EPR system not only aims at supporting home care of stroke patients, but is also designed in such a way that it can be ported to other medical services without much effort. We will briefly describe the Stroke Service and the related PropeR project. Starting from(More)
In a retrospective case-control study, we investigated high-risk HPV DNA presence by general primer GP5+/6+ PCR in the last normal cervical smear in the patient archives (i.e. baseline smear) of 57 women who later developed cervical cancer. Also, normal cervical smears of 114 age-matched control women were analysed. High-risk HPV DNA was detected in 37 of(More)
BACKGROUND Future-proof EHR systems must be capable of interpreting information structures for medical concepts that were not available at the build-time of the system. The two-model approach of CEN 13606/openEHR using archetypes achieves this by separating generic clinical knowledge from domain-related knowledge. The presentation of this information can(More)
The PropeR project studies the effect of Decision Support in an Electronic Health Record system (EHR) on the quality of care. One of the applications supports a multidisciplinary primary care team rehabilitating stroke patients in their home environment. This project required an EHR system that could handle information of multiple disciplines and multiple,(More)
Semantic interoperability should not only cover system interpretation of incoming information, but should be extended to include screen representation. This article describes a two-model approach to generate a screen representation for archetype-based information, which is inspired by the two-model approach used by openEHR for their archetypes. It provides(More)
PROBLEM The combination of a computer-based patient record and a decision-support system (DSS) may give physicians the decisive push they need to accept such systems. In the PropeR-project we determine the requirements for a generic interface between both these systems and evaluate its potential impact on patient care. This article reports results from the(More)
Decision Support Systems (DSS) are typically integrated in Electronic Health Record systems (EHR). By removing this integration full reuse of a DSS system is possible. The connection between the EHR and the DSS system should be standards-based and generic. We intend to demonstrate the viability of this setup by implementing it using PropeRWeb as EHR system,(More)
