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. OBJECTIVE To describe a user-centered approach transforming emergent themes derived from focus group data into functional requirements for informatics solutions and to illustrate…

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. An exploratory analysis.
BACKGROUND In 2009, the journal Applied Clinical Informatics (ACI) commenced publication. Focused on applications in clinical informatics, ACI was intended to be a companion journal to METHODS of
Electronic prescribing system design priorities for antimicrobial stewardship: a cross-sectional survey of 142 UK infection specialists
Key differences in health professionals' opinions of potential healthcare benefits of EPMA are demonstrated, but a consensus of anticipated positive impact on patient safety and AMS is also demonstrated.
Evaluation of User‐Interface Alert Displays for Clinical Decision Support Systems for Sepsis
This research aims to gain insight into clinical decision support systems‐based alerts, specifically targeting nursing interventions for sepsis, with a focus on behaviors associated with and perceptions of alerts, as well as visual preferences.


Research Paper: VA QUERI Informatics Paper Information Technology for Clinical Guideline Implementation: Perceptions of Multidisciplinary Stakeholders
Stakeholders share many concerns regarding the relationships between information technologies and clinical guideline use, however, administrators, physicians, and nurses hold different opinions about specific facilitators and barriers.
Use of Qualitative Methods Across the Software Development Lifecycle in Health Informatics
The authors describe the historical origins, current uses, strengths and weakness of the three qualitative methodologies that are frequently used in health informatics and they discuss an emerging approach: action research.
Use of an Electronic Health Record Clinical Decision Support Tool to Improve Antibiotic Prescribing for Acute Respiratory Infections: The ABX-TRIP Study
This multi-method intervention appears to have had a sustained impact on reducing the use of broad spectrum antibiotics for ARIs and shows promise for promoting judicious antibiotic use in primary care.
The challenge of electronic health records (EHRs) design and implementation: responses of health workers to drawing a 'big and rich picture' of a future EHR programme using animated tools.
It is illustrated that use of the animator in focus groups is one means to raise understanding about a proposed EHR development, which could be part of an effective stakeholder engagement and communication strategy crucial in any EHR or health informatics implementation programme.
