The success of change depends greatly on the ability to respond to human needs and to bridge the gap between humans and machines, and understanding the environment. With such experience, in addition to extensive practice in managing change, knowledge sharing and innovation, it would be interesting in offering a contribution by facilitating a dialogue, knowledge cafe (i.e. bringing in knowledge) on these issues, and how to apply them to new and altering scenarios. When one comes into the area of… 

Improving Nursing Practice through Interoperability and Intelligence

A new web platform for daily monitoring of patients, designed to be used by health professionals, especially nurses, based on React, an open-source JavaScript library for building user interfaces that incorporates real-time visualization of the data and storage of the patient's historic during an inpatient care episode.

Quality of service in healthcare units

Architecture has been envisaged to support the medical applications in terms of an agency for integration, diffusion and archiving of medical information and the electronic medical record, a form of a web spider of intelligent information processing system, its major subsystems, their functional roles and the flow of information and control among them.

Modeling Intelligent Agents to Integrate a Patient Monitoring System

An intelligent decision support system - INTCare, was developed and tested in CHP, a hospital in Oporto, Portugal, able to uniquely and unambiguously identify a patient and perceive its presence in bed in an ubiquitous manner, making the process of data collection and alert event more accurate.

Data Quality Evaluation of Electronic Health Records in the Hospital Admission Process

This paper shows how data quality can be evaluated from electronic health records, in particular in a hospital setting, and constructs a dynamic virtual world of complex entities or agents, driven by one criterion alone, intelligence, for the provision of healthcare.

A Web-Based System to Reduce the Nosocomial Infection Impact in Healtcare Units

The ultimate goal has been to construct a web-based computational tool to automate the registration process to support the clinical body work, monitoring the performance and identifying the procedures that can be implemented in order to reduce the impact of the infections.

Predicting Triage Waiting Time in Maternity Emergency Care by Means of Data Mining

To optimize the patient workflow through the emergency room, by predicting the triage waiting time comprised between the patient triage and their medical admission, data mining techniques are induced in selected information provided by the information technologies implemented in CMIN.
