PURPOSE This paper (1) presents the protocol of an on-going systematic literature review on the methods of structuring electronic health record (EHR) data and studying the impacts of implemented structures, thus laying basis for the analysis of the empirical articles (2) describes previous reviews published on the subject and retrieved during the search of(More)
Most EU member states have a documented policy on eHealth. Documented follow-up and evaluation policies to assess reaching of the set aims, as well as evaluating outcomes of implemented systems at a national level are, however, rare. Methodologies for large scale information system assessment and evaluation are poorly established. In the workshop, the(More)
The Global Trigger Tool (GTT) developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement is a method for retrospective patient record review based on the use of ‘triggers’—signals of potential adverse events that have caused patient harm. The method has the purpose of patient safety measurement and monitoring among adult inpatient populations and has been(More)
Patient registries are poorly interoperable and as a result data exchange or aggregation across organizations, regions and countries for secondary purposes (i.e. research and public health) is difficult to perform. PARENT Joint Action aims to provide EU Member States with a set of guidelines, recommendations and tools to support setting-up, management and(More)
PURPOSE To explore the impacts that structuring of electronic health records (EHRs) has had from the perspective of secondary use of patient data as reflected in currently published literature. This paper presents the results of a systematic literature review aimed at answering the following questions; (1) what are the common methods of structuring patient(More)
The Finnish Patient Data Repository is a nationwide electronic health record (EHR) system collecting patient data from all healthcare providers. The usefulness of the large amount of data stored in the system depends on the underlying data structures, and thus a solid understanding of these structures is in focus in further development of the data(More)
In addition to patient care, EHR data are increasingly in demand for secondary purposes, e.g. administration, research and enterprise resource planning. We conducted a systematic literature review and subsequent analysis of 85 articles focusing on the secondary use of structured patient records. We grounded the analysis on how patient records have been(More)
The lifecycle of medical data and information spans primary data sources to long-term repositories such as patient registries. The latter are yet to take full benefit of the progress in eHealth, facing considerable interoperability challenges that are even more crucial in a cross-border environment. The EU-funded Joint Action PARENT (Cross-border patient(More)
