Group support systems (GSS) provide both promise and puzzlement. Experimental studies of different systems over the years have resulted in conflicting findings --- sometimes enhancing group performance, at other times having no effect, and occasionally even resulting in worse performance for GSS-supported groups than for traditional groups. Researchers have(More)
STUDY DESIGN A critical review of the current literature. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine frequency, trends, and methods of utilization of spine-related PROIs over the last 10 years. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Patient-reported outcome instruments (PROIs) have become the gold standard to assess the efficacy of various medical and(More)
Genomics and "medical sequencing" will revolutionize clinical laboratory diagnostics as the foundation for the new era of personalized medicine. However, the medical profession lags far behind the technology and business communities in recognizing and preparing for this change. Pathologists must take the lead in the application of genomics technologies,(More)
STUDY DESIGN Bibliometric analysis. OBJECTIVES To identify patient-reported outcomes instruments (PROIs) used in pediatric deformity surgery research over the past decade and their frequency and usage trends. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The emphasis on PROIs is increasing along with the demand for evidence-based medicine and cost-effectiveness research.(More)
This paper adds to a growing group systems literature in the area of task-technology fit by investigating effects of group task pressure on perceptions of media effectiveness. A quasi-experiment was conducted using long-term participants in low-and high-level group task pressure treatments. Following treatment, participants rated email and face-to-face(More)
STUDY DESIGN Bibliometric analysis. OBJECTIVES To identify patient-reported outcomes (PROs) used in adult spinal deformity (ASD) research over the past decade, their frequency, and usage trends. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The emphasis on PROs is increasing along with the demand for evidence-based medicine. However, there is currently no standardization(More)
