Accurate, complete, and timely health data sources are essential for progress in health care. Registry and research systems are foundations for conducting clinical and epidemiological research. Developing countries lack these systems due to the scarcity of the resources allocated for health information systems. In this study, we provide an integrated model for Turkey in order to optimize the utilization of resources. The Breast Diseases Registry system (BDRS) is implemented as an integrated disease-specific system for breast diseases in order to obtain a comprehensive use of patient health data for research and Breast Cancer Registry as well as an ancillary clinical tool.

A Knowledge Based Search Tool for Performance Measures in Health Care Systems
Beyan, Oya D.; Baykal, Nazife (2012-02-01)
Performance measurement is vital for improving the health care systems. However, we are still far from having accepted performance measurement models. Researchers and developers are seeking comparable performance indicators. We developed an intelligent search tool to identify appropriate measures for specific requirements by matching diverse care settings. We reviewed the literature and analyzed 229 performance measurement studies published after 2000. These studies are evaluated with an original theoretica...
A Semantic Transformation Methodology for the Secondary Use of Observational Healthcare Data in Postmarketing Safety Studies
Pacaci, Anil; Gonul, Suat; Sinaci, A. Anil; Yuksel, Mustafa; Laleci Erturkmen, Gokce B. (Frontiers Media SA, 2018-4-30)
Background: Utilization of the available observational healthcare datasets is key to complement and strengthen the postmarketing safety studies. Use of common data models (CDM) is the predominant approach in order to enable large scale systematic analyses on disparate data models and vocabularies. Current CDM transformation practices depend on proprietarily developed Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) procedures, which require knowledge both on the semantics and technical characteristics of the source datasets an...
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...
A cross-sectional investigation of acceptance of health information technology: A nationwide survey of community pharmacists in Turkey
Sezgin, Emre; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2016-11-01)
Background: Health information technologies have become vital to health care services. In that regard, successful use of information technologies in pharmaceutical services is important to manage, control and maintain pharmaceutical transactions, which increase the quality of health care delivery.
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...
