BACKGROUND Coagulase-negative staphylococci, mainly Staphylococcus epidermidis, are the most frequent cause of late-onset sepsis (LOS) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) setting. However, recent reports indicate that methicillin-resistant, vancomycin-heteroresistant Staphylococcus capitis could emerge as a significant pathogen in the NICU. We(More)
Rare diseases include a group of conditions characterized by a prevalence lower than 5 per 10,000 in the community. In France, any rare disease affects less than 30,000 patients and often much less. Three to 4% of children and 6% of the population in Europe are affected. It is a true public health stake since most diseases do not have any curative(More)
This Web-based application allows to access views of End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) concerning the epidemiology of the demand and the supply of care. It is a Web-based Geographic Information System (Web-GIS), the SIGNe (Système d'Information Géographique pour la Néphrologie), designed for the Renal Epidemiology and Information Network (REIN) dedicated to(More)
Patients' end-stage renal disease (ESRD) characteristics are changing. Improving the quality of care requires a steady adaptation of treatment modalities together with equity of access to dialysis facilities. We explored the ability of the health system to cope with the demand of ESRD care. An analysis of a 5-year follow-up cohort of ESRD patients in the(More)
Pervasive Development Disorders (PDD) represent a life disorder which significantly affects individuals and families. It requires long term specialized institutions health care, education and social accompaniment. In France, 350,000 to 600,000 patients are estimated to be affected and 5,000 to 8,000 newborns will develop the disorder every year. In 2005,(More)
Patients explicit and unambiguous information, patients consents and privacy protection are reviewed in this article, in the frame of the deployment of the information system TEDIS dedicated to autism spectrum disorders. The role of the Delegate to the Protection of Data is essential at this stage. We developed a privacy protection scheme based on storing(More)
TEDIS, an information system dedicated to patients with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) was tested. Results focused on the process of behavioural changes among physicians and health professionals with regard to structured organized patient information.The experiment encouraged changes in professionals' habits for further documenting and systematizing(More)
Data exchange and interoperability between clinical information systems represent a crucial issue in the context of patient record data collection. An XML representation schema adapted to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients was developed and successfully tested against patient data in the dedicated Multi-Source Information System (MSIS) active file(More)
A Multi-Source Information System (MSIS), has been designed for the Renal Epidemiology and Information Network (REIN) dedicated to End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). MSIS aims at providing reliable follow-up data for ESRD patients. It is based on an n-tier architecture, made out of a universal client, a dynamic Web server connected to a production database and(More)
