Usability evaluation of Electronic Health Record
An inspection usability method, Heuristic Walkthrough, was used to evaluate and improve the usability of the EHR system and resulted in understanding what can be improved to achieve a better system. Expand
Usability of an electronic health record
This paper describes how two usability evaluation methods were used to evaluate the usability of the EHR, and it was able to recognize the level of usability present in the E HR, along with the usability issues that can be disposed. Expand
Artificial neural networks in diabetes control
This work will focus on the development of a diagnosis support system, in terms of its knowledge representation and reasoning procedures, under a formal framework based on Logic Programming, complemented with an approach to computing centred on Artificial Neural Networks to evaluate the Diabetes states and the Degree ofConfidence that one has on such a happening. Expand
A Comparative Study of Optical Character Recognition in Health Information System
An application that would aid the process of digitalization of documents was developed using a Python library to help with the decision of which library to use, regarding the precision and speed of execution of PyOCR, PyTesseract and TesseOCR. Expand
Ambient intelligence in medicine
This paper will thrash out the inner features of intelligent agents to be used in the EMR, in the context of the Telemedical Information Society, a step in the direction of Intelligent Health Care Units. Expand
Monitoring intelligent system for the Intensive Care Unit using RFID and multi-agent systems
PaLMS, a Patient Localization and Monitoring System, is being developed and tested in Centro Hospitalar do Porto - CHP, a hospital in Portugal, providing a way to improve INTCare by ending the storage and analysis of redundant data, collected when the patient isn't in the bed, plus stopping the warning events triggered by the vital signs out of range.

Systematic coronary risk evaluation through artificial neural networks based systems
The focus in this work will be on the development of a risk evaluation support system based on a low-risk record, grounded on a new approach to knowledge representation and reasoning, that based on an extension to the Logic Programming language, will be able to overcome the drawbacks of the present ones.

An artificial neuronal network approach to diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
On the one hand about 3% to 12% of school-aged children present Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a situation that is characterized by attention deficit, impulsiveness andExpand
Hospital database workload and fault forecasting
Monitor database performance to verify the normal workload for the main database of Centro Hospitalar do Porto and adapt a forecasting model used in medicine into the database context to develop a fault forecasting system. Expand
