Summary Background: Many informatics studies use content analysis to generate functional requirements for system development. Explication of this translational process from qualitative data to functional requirements can strengthen the understanding and scientific rigor when applying content analysis in informatics studies. Objectives: To describe a user-centered approach transforming emergent themes derived from focus group data into functional requirements for informatics solutions and to… 

Interface, information, interaction: a narrative review of design and functional requirements for clinical decision support

This review will expand the field of knowledge and provide a novel organization structure to identify key recommendations for CDSS to support the efficient, effective, and timely delivery of high-quality care.

From Bench to Bed: Bridging from Informatics Theory to Practice

To explore, after five years, which congruencies and interdependencies exist in publications of these journals and to determine if gaps exist and whether the intention of publishing these companion journals to provide an information bridge from informatics theory to informatics practice and from practice to theory could be supported.

Electronic Prescribing System and electronic health record priorities for antimicrobial stewardship

Findings from this study reveal considerable demand for additional software features expressed by the healthcare professionals charged with promoting rational use of antimicrobials and a consensus of anticipated positive impact on patient safety and efficiency outcomes.

Electronic prescribing system design priorities for antimicrobial stewardship: a cross-sectional survey of 142 UK infection specialists
