BACKGROUND Ubiquitous computing technology, sensor networks, wireless communication and the latest developments of the Internet have enabled the rise of a new concept-pervasive health-which takes place in an open, unsecure, and highly dynamic environment (ie, in the information space). To be successful, pervasive health requires implementable principles for(More)
BACKGROUND The zinc-finger transcription factor GLI3 is an important mediator of Sonic hedgehog signaling and crucial for patterning of many aspects of the vertebrate body plan. In vertebrates, the mechanism of SHH signal transduction and its action on target genes by means of activating or repressing forms of GLI3 have been studied most extensively during(More)
INTRODUCTION The coexistence of different information systems that are unable to communicate is a persistent problem in healthcare and in integrated home care in particular. THEORY AND METHODS Physically federated integration is used for design of the underlying technical architecture to implement a mobile virtual health record for integrated home care. A(More)
This paper presents a new multi-disciplinary method for user needs analysis and requirements specification in the context of health information systems based on established theories from the fields of participatory design and computer supported cooperative work (CSCW). Whereas conventional methods imply a separate, sequential needs analysis for each(More)
During the last decade, the challenges of an ageing society became focus for extensive scientific, public and political discussions. From discussions in scientific fora within each discipline, there is now a shift towards cross-disciplinary scientific approaches. The aim of this article is therefore, to collect and describe different scientific viewpoints(More)
BACKGROUND Shared homecare is increasingly common, and in order to develop ICT that support such complex cooperative and interdisciplinary work it is crucial to obtain an understanding of work processes at the clinical level before the development is initiated. It is also crucial, but difficult, to correctly transfer this insight to the development team. (More)
UNLABELLED When care professionals from different organisations are involved in patient care, their different views on the care process may not be meaningfully integrated. OBJECTIVE To use visualisation and interaction design solutions addressing the specific demands of shared care in order to support a collaborative work process. METHODS Participatory(More)
