Applications of Automated Identification Technology in EHR/EMR

  title={Applications of Automated Identification Technology in EHR/EMR},
  author={Lidong Wang and Cheryl Ann Alexander},
  journal={International Journal of Public Health Science},
Although both the electronic health record (EHR) and the electronic medical record (EMR) store an individual’s computerized health information and the terminologies are often used interchangeably, there are some differences between them. Three primary approaches in Automated Identification Technology (AIT) are barcoding, radio frequency identification (RFID), and biometrics. In this paper, technology intelligence, progress, limitations, and challenges of EHR/EMR are introduced. The applications…

Secure Handling of Electronic Health Records for Telemedicine Applications
It is not possible to prevent honest-but-curious doctor curiosity from entering into the medical records, but it is possible to limit the number of entries in the records.
Big Data in Health Care: Applications and Challenges
This review was to summarize the features, applications, analysis approaches, and challenges of Big Data in health care, which brings a series of challenges for data storage, mining, and sharing for health-related research.
DNA Bar-Coding: A Novel Approach for Identifying an Individual Using Extended Levenshtein Distance Algorithm and STR Analysis
This work is creating human DNA barcode and implementing Extended Levenshtein distance algorithm along with STR analysis that uses less computation time compared to the previously used algorithms to measure the differential distance between the two DNA nucleotide sequences through which an individual can be identified.
Application of Genetic Algorithms for the Estimation of Hydraulic Conductivity
Abstract In the study described here model calibration was performed employing the inverse analysis using genetic algorithms (GA). The objective of analysis is to determine value of the coefficient


RF-Medisys: a radio frequency identification-based electronic medical record system for improving medical information accessibility and services at point of care.
An innovative electronic medical records (EMR) system which can perform medical information sharing and retrieval effectively and which is accessible via a 'smart' medical card is presented.
Information Systems and Health Care-II: Back to the Future with RFID: Lessons Learned - Some Old, Some New
Results from the study suggest not only that RFID technology can assist in the measurement and ultimate control of workflow processes, but also that traditional and non-traditional IS practices are necessary for successful RFID implementation.

Radiofrequency identification (RFID) is a wireless method of automatic identification that could provide large amounts of data that not only carry the promise of improving health care, but also may have an impact on personal aspects of the authors' daily lives.
A system based on RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) consisting on both hardware and software that would allow to improve the health care quality by improving the patients management and that would to be perfectly integrated into any local / national or international health information system and data base.
Implementation Of Electronic Medical Records: How Healthcare Providers Are Managing The Challenges Of Going Digital
Electronic medical record implementation is complex, but the benefits of organization and improved healthcare outweigh the minor setbacks, and the goal was to explore the phenomenon of the EMR implementation in this short term research project.
A survey and analysis of Electronic Healthcare Record standards
A survey of the most relevant Electronic Healthcare Record standards is presented, examine the level of interoperability they provide, and assess their functionality in terms of content structure, access services, multimedia support, and security.
Applying RFID Technology to construct an Elegant Hospital Environment
Efficient and accurate data cleaning is an essential task for the successful deployment of RFID systems and this paper gives the brief.
Resistance to Electronic Medical Records (EMRs): A Barrier to Improved Quality of Care
Why physicians have been reluctant to adopt EMRs is examined to provide specific examples of how ERTs can improve quality of care and to report findings from a recent study focused on physician perceptions concerning E MRs.
Using Medical History Embedded in Biometrics Medical Card for User Identity Authentication: Privacy Preserving Authentication Model by Features Matching
The design of a privacy preserving model by backward inference is introduced in this paper and can verify by inference whether the user has a record of it stored in his smart card.
Using Medical History Embedded in Biometrics Medical Card for User Identity Authentication: Data Representation by AVT Hierarchical Data Tree
A new method is proposed for abstracting the medical data by using attribute value taxonomies, into a hierarchical data tree (h-Data), which can be abstracted to various level of resolution (hence sensitivity of private data) for use in the authentication process.
