An efficient middleware has been developed to support medical device communication. HL7 is known to be best international standard to facilitate clinical device data transfer to information systems in hospital. In this study, we developed a middleware with capability of receiving data from mCare 300 Vital signs monitoring device and converting to HL7 data(More)
A basic assumption of Health Level Seven (HL7) protocol is 'No limitation of message length'. However, most existing commercial HL7 interface engines do limit message length because they use the string array method, which is run in the main memory for the HL7 message parsing process. Specifically, messages with image and multi-media data create a long(More)
In general, hospital information systems are operated independently of each other. We propose a next-generation hospital information system (HIS) based on the HL7 clinical document architecture (CDA) including also an electronic health record (EHR) and a clinical data repository (CDR) to enable the sharing of medical information among health and medical(More)
OBJECTIVES We design and develop an electronic claim system based on an integrated electronic health record (EHR) platform. This system is designed to be used for ambulatory care by office-based physicians in the United States. This is achieved by integrating various medical standard technologies for interoperability between heterogeneous information(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate a mobile health application (Self-Management mobile Personal Health Record: “SmPHR”) to ensure the interoperability of various personal health devices (PHDs) and electronic medical record systems (EMRs) for continuous self-management of chronic disease patients. The SmPHR was developed for Android 4.0.3,(More)
OBJECTIVES The Health Level Seven Interface Engine (HL7 IE), developed by Kyungpook National University, has been employed in health information systems, however users without a background in programming have reported difficulties in using it. Therefore, we developed a graphical user interface (GUI) engine to make the use of the HL7 IE more convenient. (More)
As the Resource Description Framework (RDF) data model is widely used for modeling and sharing a lot of online bioinformatics resources such as Uniprot (dev.isb-sib.ch/projects/uniprot-rdf) or Bio2RDF (bio2rdf.org), SPARQL -- a W3C recommendation query for RDF databases - has become an important query language for querying the bioinformatics knowledge(More)
We present customized ontology-based intelligent medical terminology tool. Growth of ontological based medical information tools in IT technology obviously is going to effect the future of medical information systems. In this concern many groups and organizations have processed ontological based tools for healthcare information system however necessitate of(More)
We have developed and implemented an efficient method of managing routine patient care information as a programmable group order protocol. The purpose of protocol is to minimize a labor-intensive manual computer interaction by grouping clinically related routine orders as a single entity, thus to greatly speed up the time taken for manual entry such as(More)
The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is widely used for sharing biomedical resources, such as the online protein database UniProt or gene database GeneOntology. SPARQL is the native query language for RDF databases and it features regular expressions in queries for which the exact values are either irrelevant or unknown. A recent paper by Lee et al.(More)
