Extending HL7 RIM Model to Capture Physical Activity Data

  title={Extending HL7 RIM Model to Capture Physical Activity Data},
  author={Rishi Saripalle},
Experts recommend to include physical activity in everyone’s daily routine as it helps to curb various medical issues. They provide diverse healthcare services (e.g., interventions, exercise routine, personal trainer plan, therapy, etc.) to promote healthy living and to increase physical activity in one’s ever increasing hectic schedules. An individual generates a lot of data when he/she performs a physical activity. However, this data (exercises, training plans, etc.) and any other associated…

The goal of this research is to addresses the inability of the existing healthcare standards to capture and share the activity and its associated data with any healthcare information systems, such as an EHR by leveraging the HL7 FHIR standard.

Integrating Physical Activity Data with Electronic Health Record

An interoperable model by leveraging HL7 FHIR standard to capture activity data from wearables and develop it using FHir HAPI - an implementation of HL7FHIR.

Anyone who is at risk for these chronic diseases should consider exercise an essential vaccine to greatly lower risk of illness and almost certainly extend life.

Developing a Semantic Model to Describe Physical Activity Data

A semantic model of the physical activity domain is developed by reviewing 302 physical activity questions collected from standardized questionnaires and public data repositories and identified three types of contexts: active lifestyle, physical capacity, and environment.

The Exercise is Medicine Global Health Initiative: a 2014 update

Broad implementation of PA counselling and referral systems, as clinical practice standard of care, has the potential to improve PA at the population level by complementing and leveraging other efforts and to contribute to achieving global targets for the reduction of inactivity and related morbidity and mortality.

Inadequate physical activity and health care expenditures in the United States.

Initial validation of an exercise "vital sign" in electronic medical records.

The EVS has the potential to provide information about the relationship between exercise and health care use, cost, and chronic disease that has not been previously available at the population level and may provide more conservative estimates of PA behavior when compared with national surveys.

The pandemic of physical inactivity: global action for public health

From Research to Practice: EnhanceFitness, an Innovative Community-Based Senior Exercise Program

The development and dissemination of an evidence-based exercise program for older adults, EnhanceFitness (EF), is traced, its effectiveness is summarized, its adoption by partners, and best practices related to program maintenance are highlighted.

Current influences and approaches to promote future physical activity in 11–13 year olds: a focus group study

This study has highlighted a number of influences on current and future participation in PA, which differed based on gender and existing PA levels, for example, maximising the potential of the school day and including technology and incentives.

A proposed star schema and extraction process to enhance the collection of contextual & semantic information for clinical research data warehouses

This paper proposes a star schema and associated extraction process to enhance the collection of contextual and semantic information in support of CRDW that leverages HL7 Clinical Document Architecture in conjunction with the Reference Information Model.
