Health information technology (HIT) standards are not new. Arguably, they date to the canonical list for causes of death in the London Bills of Mortality of 1528, which was later formalized during the middle of the 19th century into what we now recognize as the International Classifications of Diseases (ICD). Beginning in the middle of the 20th century, HIT standards evolved beyond vital statistics and began to capture data related to clinical morbidity, thereby facilitating nascent decision… 

Big Data, Big Challenges.

Unleashing the value of Common Data Elements through the CEDAR Workbench

TLDR
This work developed extensions to a metadata management system called the CEDAR Workbench to provide a platform to simplify the creation, exchange, and use of CDEs and incorporated a large CDE library from the National Cancer Institute's caDSR system.

The Knowledge- and Adoption Level of Standards for Technical Interoperability among Providers of Healthcare Information Systems

TLDR
The goal of this thesis was to structure and analyze information about the knowledge- and adoption level of the standards among providers of healthcare information systems (HIS's) and evaluate different aspect that might affect the adoption.

Informatics for Big Data and Precision Medicine

TLDR
The advances in Big Data Analytics and Internet technologies together with the engagement of citizens in sciences are shaping the global clinical research enterprise, which is getting more open and increasingly stakeholder-centered, where stakeholders include patients, clinicians, researchers, and sponsors.

Clinical Research Informatics for Big Data and Precision Medicine.

TLDR
The advances in Big Data Analytics and Internet technologies together with the engagement of citizens in sciences are shaping the global clinical research enterprise, which is getting more open and increasingly stakeholder-centered, where stakeholders include patients, clinicians, researchers, and sponsors.

    2015 17th International Conference on E-health Networking, Application & Services (HealthCom)
  • 2015
TLDR
The use of Information Accountability protocols is proposed to provide patients with the ability to decide how and when their data can be shared and aggregated for use in big data research.

Development and Refinement of a Learning Health Systems Training Program

TLDR
The LHSTP is a novel curriculum that trains physicians to lead towards the LHS using analytical, informatics and systems engineering skills through an active-learning project utilizing health system data that culminates in a final presentation to health system leadership.

Solving the interoperability challenge of a distributed complex patient guidance system: a data integrator based on HL7's Virtual Medical Record standard

OBJECTIVE We show how the HL7 Virtual Medical Record (vMR) standard can be used to design and implement a data integrator (DI) component that collects patient information from heterogeneous sources

Harmonizing and extending standards from a domain-specific and bottom-up approach: an example from development through use in clinical applications

TLDR
A collaborative project to develop common information models, terminology bindings, and term definitions based on nursing documentation systems is described, and a process by which a community of practice can contribute to closing gaps in existing standards using SDO processes is demonstrated.

A national action plan for sharable and comparable nursing data to support practice and translational research for transforming health care

TLDR
The historical context of nursing terminologies, challenges to the use of nursing data for purposes other than documentation of care, and a national action plan for implementing and using sharable and comparable Nursing data for quality reporting and translational research are described.

Standard for improving emergency information interoperability: the HL7 data elements for emergency department systems

TLDR
The HL7 DEEDS specification represents the first set of common ED related data elements to undergo rigorous standards development and will contribute to improved interoperability of emergency care data.

Assessing the adequacy of the HL7/LOINC Document Ontology Role axis

TLDR
The adequacy of the Role axis for representing the type of author documenting care was assessed and baseline certification, licensure, and didactic training were identified as key parameters that define roles and hence often need to be pre-coordinated.

Semantic enrichment of clinical models towards semantic interoperability. The heart failure summary use case

TLDR
It is shown how an ontology-based representation of a clinical summary, guided by semantic patterns, allows homogeneous querying of heterogeneous information structures, whether there are a finite number of top-level patterns is an open question.

Transformation of standardized clinical models based on OWL technologies: from CEM to OpenEHR archetypes

TLDR
A generic, ontology-based, flexible approach for supporting the automatic transformation of clinical models, which is illustrated for the transformation of Clinical Element Models (CEMs) into openEHR archetypes.

A nursing information model process for interoperability

TLDR
A framework with repeatable steps and processes to enable the semantic interoperability of relevant and contextual nursing data is described and can be applied to other nurse-sensitive measures to enable data standardization supporting patient transitions between care settings, quality reporting, and research.

Supporting interoperability of genetic data with LOINC

TLDR
It is recommended that laboratories always report as discrete variables chromosome analysis results, genetic variation found, and genetic variation tested for, as well as the narrative text they report now.

Development, implementation, and initial evaluation of a foundational open interoperability standard for oncology treatment planning and summarization

OBJECTIVE Develop and evaluate a foundational oncology-specific standard for the communication and coordination of care throughout the cancer journey, with early-stage breast cancer as the use case.
