This paper presents an interpretive case study on extraction of disease surveillance data from Electronic Patient Records (EPRs) in primary care. The General Practitioners (GPs) use of the EPR system, and the effect this has on data content, such as symptoms reported by patients and diagnoses reported by GPs, is discussed. The paper contributes to greater(More)
The Norwegian Centre for Telemedicine (NST) has, over the past two decades, contributed to the development and implementation of telemedicine and ehealth services in Norway. From 2002, NST has been a WHO Collaboration Center for telemedicine. In August 1996, Norway became the first country to implement an official telemedicine fee schedule making(More)
BACKGROUND Over the last two decades, the number of studies on electronic symptom reporting has increased greatly. However, the field is very heterogeneous: the choices of patient groups, health service innovations, and research targets seem to involve a broad range of foci. To move the field forward, it is necessary to build on work that has been done and(More)
BACKGROUND We conducted in two parts a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on electronic symptom reporting between patients and providers to improve health care service quality. Part 1 reviewed the typology of patient groups, health service innovations, and research targets. Four innovation categories were identified: consultation(More)
A literature review has been conducted to gain an overview of which technologies and patient groups have previously been employed in scientific studies with regard to patients reporting symptoms electronically. This paper presents preliminary results from the review, based on the abstracts from relevant publications. The Medline database search identified(More)
A literature review has been conducted to gain an overview of the evolution of personal health records (PHR) and their role for self-management. This paper presents this evolution overview, based on review of abstracts from relevant publications in addition to full-text review of reviews. A search in the Medline database for 'PHR' and 'self-management'(More)
In this paper we have investigated "to what degree patients trust their regular doctor to be fully informed about the prevalence of infectious diseases in their neighbourhood", and what general practitioners (GPs) actually know. A representative sample of one thousand Norwegians (potential patients) was interviewed by telephone, and 13 GPs were interviewed(More)
This paper presents the main results from a qualitative risk assessment of information security aspects for a new real-time disease surveillance approach in general, and for the Snow surveillance system in particular. All possible security threats and acceptable solutions, and the implications these solutions had to the design of the system, were discussed.(More)
The paper presents how authentication and encryption is implemented in the Snow disease surveillance network. Requirements for the authentication mechanism were collected from General Practitioners (GPs). The identity of each Snow user is preserved across health institutions allowing GPs to move freely between health institutions and use the system(More)
To increase patients' empowerment and involvement in their own health, several countries has decided to provide patients with electronic access to their health record. This paper reports on the main findings from sub-studies and pilots prior to the implementation of patients' access to their medical records in large-scale in the Northern Norway Region. The(More)
