A variety of substances contained in cosmetic products can lead to allergic reactions for certain individuals. The names of such substances are predominantly printed onto a product in small-sized expert language. For this reason, consumers often have difficulties to assess whether some of the ingredients might be harmful for them. Consequently, patients are(More)
Adherence is an important factor for the outcome of medical therapies. Several reminder applications to raise adherence have been developed, e.g., smart phone apps. Literature suggests that such solutions seem to be inefficient. In this paper, we discuss current research in the field of ultra-mobile devices, i.e., smart watches. In addition, we investigate(More)
BACKGROUND Today, runners use wearable technology such as global positioning system (GPS)-enabled sport watches to track and optimize their training activities, for example, when participating in a road race event. For this purpose, an increasing amount of low-priced, consumer-oriented wearable devices are available. However, the variety of such devices is(More)
Records of female breast cancer patients were selected from a clinical cancer registry and separated into three cohorts according to HER2-status (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) and treatment with or without Trastuzumab (a humanized monoclonal antibody). Propensity score matching was used to balance the cohorts. Afterwards, documented information(More)
Survival time prediction at the time of diagnosis is of great importance to make decisions about treatment and long-term follow-up care. However, predicting the outcome of cancer on the basis of clinical information is a challenging task. We now examined the ability of ten different data mining algorithms (Perceptron, Rule Induction, Support Vector Machine,(More)
Hospital cancer registries can be a reliable source for comparative effectiveness research. We used an expanded Markov model to estimate breast cancer prevalence for a distinct region in Germany. Thereby, transition probabilities were computed with patient information gained directly from the dataset. A first validation was executed by comparing the results(More)
Smart glasses (SG) are on the verge of entering the mass market. Some physicians are already experimenting with SG in hospital settings. This paper gives a brief description of SG in general. Furthermore, several health-related situations in which SG might have beneficial influence are presented. However, there are perils or different kind and also open(More)
Medication adherence is an important factor for the outcome of medical therapies. To support high adherence levels, smartwatches can be used to assist the patient. However, a successful integration of such devices into clinicians' or general practitioners' information systems requires the use of standards. In this paper, a medication management system(More)
