OBJECTIVE Safety and efficacy of biphasic insulin aspart 70/30 (BIAsp 70/30, prebreakfast and presupper) were compared with once-daily insulin glargine in type 2 diabetic subjects inadequately controlled on oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This 28-week parallel-group study randomized 233 insulin-naive patients with HbA(1c)(More)
BACKGROUND In response to inherent inadequacies in health information technologies, clinicians create their own tools for managing their information needs. Little is known about these clinician-designed information tools. With greater appreciation for why clinicians resort to these tools, health information technology designers can develop systems that(More)
Managers of operating rooms (ORs) and of units upstream (e.g., ambulatory surgery) and downstream (e.g., intensive care and post-anesthesia care) of the OR require real-time information about OR occupancy. Which ORs are in use, and when will each ongoing operation end? This information is used to make decisions about how to assign staff, when to prepare(More)
We developed an algorithm for processing networked vital signs (VS) to remotely identify in real-time when a patient enters and leaves a given operating room (OR). The algorithm addresses two types of mismatches between OR occupancy and VS: a patient is in the OR but no VS are available (e.g., patient is being hooked up), and no patient is in the OR but(More)
Multi-disciplinary rounds are a forum for communication and sense-making, and they play a critical role in intensive care to ensure care coordination across specialties and providers. Increased availability of clinical information through computers has made it possible to provide support during rounds. We conducted an observation study to determine ways in(More)
