The emergence of electronic healthcare have caused numerous changes in both substantive and procedural aspects of healthcare processes. Such changes have introduced new risks to patient privacy and information confidentiality. Traditional privacy policies fall too short to respond to privacy needs of patients in electronic healthcare. Structured and enforceable policies are needed in order to protect patient privacy in modern healthcare with its cross organizational information sharing and decision making. Structured Patient Privacy Policy (S3P) is a framework for a formalized and enforceable privacy policy in healthcare. S3P contains a prototype implementation of a structured and enforceable privacy policy based on eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML). By simulating healthcare scenarios, S3P provides a means for experts from different professional backgrounds to assess the effect of policies on healthcare processes and to reach ethically sound privacy policies suitable for electronic healthcare.

A Secure Semantic Interoperability Infrastructure for Inter-Enterprise Sharing of Electronic Healthcare Records
Boniface, Mike; Watkins, E. Rowland; Saleh, Ahmed; Doğaç, Asuman; Eichelberg, Marco (2006-06-09)
Healthcare professionals need access to accurate and complete healthcare records for effective assessment, diagnosis and treatment of patients. The non-interoperability of healthcare information systems means that inter-enterprise access to a patient's history over many distributed encounters is difficult to achieve. The ARTEMIS project has developed a secure semantic web service infrastructure for the interoperability of healthcare information systems. Healthcare professionals share services and medical in...
A novel report generation approach for medical applications : the sisds methodology and its applications
Kuru, Kaya; Arda, Kemal; Department of Medical Informatics (2010)
In medicine, reliable data are available only in a few areas and necessary information on prognostic implications is generally missing. In spite of the fact that a great amount of money has been invested to ease the process, an effective solution has yet to be found. Unfortunately, existing data collection approaches in medicine seem inadequate to provide accurate and high quality data, which is a prerequisite for building a robust and effective DDSS. In this thesis, many different medical reporting methodo...
Usability evaluation of mobile information and communications technology in health care
Akbaşoğlu, Beyza; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Health Informatics (2013)
Technology plays an increasingly important role in modern health care. This thesis presents an approach to usability evaluation of mobile information and communications technologies designed for diabetes patients’ use in their daily lives. According to our study conducted on 60 diabetes patients, several important findings were obtained. Fifty nine (98.3%) diabetes patients were highly satisfied with the mobile health technology and expressed that they would use it, and found the measured values reliable. F...
A new ontology and knowledge base system for performance measurement in health care
Beyan, Oya Deniz; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Health Informatics (2010)
Performance measurement makes up the core of all health care systems in transition. Many countries and institutions monitor different aspects of health care delivery systems for differing purposes. Health care deliverers are compared, rated, and given incentives with respect to their measured performance. However, a global health care domain is currently striving for attaining commonly accepted performance measurement models and base-standards that can be used in information systems. The objective of this t...
Achieving Clinical Statement Interoperability Using R-MIM and Archetype-Based Semantic Transformations
Kılıç, Özgün Ozan (2009-07-01)
Effective use of electronic healthcare records (EHRs) has the potential to positively influence both the quality and the cost of health care. Consequently, sharing patient's EHRs is becoming a global priority in the healthcare information technology domain. This paper addresses the interoperability of EHR structure and content. It describes how two different EHR standards derived from the same reference information model (RIM) can be mapped to each other by using archetypes, refined message information mode...
