Event oriented representation for collaborative activities in an intensive care unit

  title={Event oriented representation for collaborative activities in an intensive care unit},
  author={Liliane Pellegrin and Nathalie Bonnardel and Herv{\'e} Chaudet},
We introduce in this paper a method for describing the components of medical activities during a patient management in an ICU (Intensive Care Unit) by the medical team, including physicians and nurses. This method allows both observing and representing the collective activity of patient management and should be used by the team members in order to prepare themselves to official accreditation procedures. An event-centred representation of medical activities is built during a 3-steps procedure… Expand
A novel event-based consistency model for supporting collaborative cyberinfrastructure based scientific research
A novel event-based consistency model is proposed that prevents the replication of records in the system and ensures the working of the system in a consistent state and is discussed with Semantic Research Grid (SRG)-a collaborative system consisting of tools and services for supporting Cyberinfrastructure based scientific research.

Coordinating heterogeneous work: Information and representation in medical care
This work uses the idea of a common information space to explore how the shared information is incorporated into the diverse work practices of an intensive care unit and finds that providing information in many specialised representations is critical to managing their coordination. Expand
Three-Layer Model for the design of a Protocol Support System
The aim of this paper is to describe how the PropeR project has taken the organizational and social aspects into account in the hospital setting and the consequences of this approach for the design of the PSS. Expand
SPECIAL SECTION: Task Complexity in Emergency Medical Care and Its Implications for Team Coordination
Training to increase explicit communications and improvements in the design of work procedures are necessary in order to meet the challenges of task complexity in emergency medical care. Expand
Asking questions: information needs in a surgical intensive care unit
It was found that organizational information was extremely important to SICU team members and the first resource that team members utilized was not electronic or paper but rather human: another team member. Expand
Potential for meeting clinician information requirements in an intensive care unit (ICU) via the web
The majority of information required by clinicians in an ICU can be made accessible via the web if a systematic approach is taken to identify needs and to develop or link to applications and web pages to meet these needs. Expand
Integrating users' activity modeling in the design and assessment of hospital electronic patient records: the example of anesthesia
It is demonstrated that when the management of medical information is closely intertwined with the physician's activity, it is necessary to perform a precise analysis of this activity in order to identify the cognitive and organizational constraints that affect the usability and acceptance of the tool.

Classification and analysis of incidents in complex medical environments.
Risk management in medicine is often seen as lagging behind other safety-critical domains where there has been considerable research into incident causation models. In this article, incident analysisExpand
Scenario recognition for temporal reasoning in medical domains
The application of the proposed technique for recognizing a session, implemented in the Déjà Vu system, to the recognition of typical medical scenarios with both precise and imprecise temporal information is explored. Expand
User-centred, multidimensional assessment method of Clinical Information Systems: a case-study in anaesthesiology
The multi-dimensional assessment method proved efficient and promising as a support for the decision process, for enhancing users' involvement in the project, and for initiating the necessary re-engineering of the Human Computer Interface. Expand
Analysing Action Sequences: Variations in Action Density in the Administration of Anaesthesia
The results of the process-oriented case analysis show that action density exhibits a characteristic and distinct distribution during the administration of anaesthesia, and overlapping operations seem to have a central position when dealing with the varying requirements related to the occurrence of unexpected events.
