BACKGROUND Cloud computing is a recent and fast growing area of development in healthcare. Ubiquitous, on-demand access to virtually endless resources in combination with a pay-per-use model allow for new ways of developing, delivering and using services. Cloud computing is often used in an "OMICS-context", e.g. for computing in genomics, proteomics and(More)
Although constraints are useful to express semantic restrictions on object structures, Java provides little support for their implementation and evaluation. We argue that constraints should be specified explicitly, and propose a set of design patterns for the representation of constraints on JavaBeans. Object-oriented reflection is used to evaluate these(More)
Decision-making in anesthesia requires the integration of information from various clinical data sources, such as the patient, the laboratory, the surgery and the clinical personnel. However, information management and processing is aggravated by the highly heterogeneous and distributed nature of the current clinical data and information repositories.(More)
Prospective Health Technology Assessment (ProHTA) is a new and innovative approach to analyze and assess new technologies, methods and procedures in health care. Simulation processes are used to model innovations before the cost-intensive design and development phase. Thus effects on patient care, the health care system as well as health economics aspects(More)
Hospital readmissions of patients put a high burden not only on the health care system, but also on the patients since complications after discharge generally lead to additional burdens. Estimating the risk of readmission after discharge from inpatient care has been the subject of several publications in recent years. In those publications the authors(More)
This article is about a new project that combines clinical data intelligence and smart data. It provides an introduction to the “Klinische Datenintelligenz” (KDI) project which is founded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi); we transfer research and development results (R&D) of the analysis of data which are generated in the(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t " Prospective Health Technology Assessment " (ProHTA) aims to develop a platform targeting health care manufacturers and decision makers that facilitates the assessment of innovative health technologies prior to their launch. The simulation has been run for the first case study of Mobile Stroke Units (MSUs). In the(More)
OBJECTIVES The secondary use of clinical data provides large opportunities for clinical and translational research as well as quality assurance projects. For such purposes, it is necessary to provide a flexible and scalable infrastructure that is compliant with privacy requirements. The major goals of the cloud4health project are to define such an(More)
Barcodes, RFID, WLAN, Bluetooth and many more technologies are used in hospitals. They are the technological bases for different applications such as patient monitoring, asset management and facility management. However, most of these applications exist side by side with hardly any integration and even interoperability is not guaranteed. Introducing the(More)
