Reliability of continuous glucose monitoring, availability of real-time programmable insulin pumps, and validation of safe(More)
OBJECTIVES Virtual integration of distributed patient data promises advantages over a consolidated health record, but raises questions mainly about practicability and authorization concepts. Our work aims on specification and development of a virtual shared health record architecture using a patient-centred integration and authorization model. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVES INCA (Intelligent Control Assistant for Diabetes) is an EU funded project aimed at improving diabetes therapy by creating a personal closed-loop system interacting with telemedical remote control. This study aims at identifying and applying suitable methods for a cost-benefit analysis from the perspective of the payor for health services. (More)
OBJECTIVES The economical need for efficient healthcare leads to cooperative shared care networks. A virtual electronic health record is required, which integrates patient related information but reflects the distributed infrastructure and restricts access only to those health professionals involved into the care process.

BACKGROUND INCA (Intelligent Control Assistant for Diabetes) is a project funded by the EU with the objective to improve diabetes therapy by creating a personal closed loop system interacting with telemedical remote control. Cost-benefit analyses of such systems are needed to decide on the introduction of telemedical systems such as the INCA system to(More)
Demographic trends towards an aging society motivate the search for alternative health care paradigms. Information technology driven home-care and telecare are popular concepts, and a lot of projects resulted in corresponding systems. Thus the question arises what implications for health information system (HIS) architectures emerge and how sensor(More)
BACKGROUND Electronic availability of health care claims data maintained by health insurance companies today is higher than the availability of clinical patient record data. OBJECTIVE To explore feasibility of automatically generated patient care summaries based on claims data and its benefit for health care professionals (HCP), when no shared electronic(More)
