A Systematic Literature Review on Health Recommender Systems
Sezgin, Emre; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2013-11-23)
Health Information Systems are becoming an important platform for healthcare services. In this context, Health Recommender Systems (HRS) are presented as complementary tools in decision making processes in health care services. Health Recommender Systems increase usability of technologies and reduce information overload in processes. In this paper, a literature review was conducted by following a review procedure. Major approaches in HRS were outlined and findings were discussed. The paper presented current...
Design and implementation of semantically enriched web services in the healthcare domain
Altıntakan, Ümit Lütfü; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Healthcare Informatics suffers from the lack of information exchange among domain partners. Allowing cooperation among distributed and heterogeneous applications is a major need of current healthcare information systems. Beyond the communication and integration problems, medical information itself is by nature complex, combined with data and knowledge. The increasing number of standards and representation of the same data in different structures using these standards constitute another problem in the domain...
Work in Progress toward Adoption of an e-Health Application by Healthcare Personnel: A Model Validation
Sezgin, Emre; Alasehir, Oguzhan; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2014-10-17)
Health information systems (HIS) have provided a major leap forward in communication and management of health services. In this study, a system of pharmaceutical services, which is an HIS platform that enables pharmacists to communicate with hospitals, government health agencies and suppliers, was investigated. The study aims to assess and determine factors influencing health professionals' (pharmacists) adoption of the system. In this work in progress study, a new research model (P-TAM) was developed, and ...

Mizani, M. A.; Baykal, Nazife (BMJ, 2007-12-01)
Paper-based privacy policies fail to resolve the new changes posed by electronic healthcare. Protecting patient privacy through electronic systems has become a serious concern and is the subject of several recent studies. The shift towards an electronic privacy policy introduces new ethical challenges that cannot be solved merely by technical measures. Structured Patient Privacy Policy (S3P) is a software tool assuming an automated electronic privacy policy in an electronic healthcare setting. It is designe...
A Case for Societal Digital Security Culture
BEN OTHMANE, Lotfi; WEFFERS, Harold; RANCHAL, Rohit; Angın, Pelin; BHARGAVA, Bharat; MOHAMAD, Mohd M (2013-07-10)
Information and communication technology systems, such as remote health care monitoring and smart mobility applications, have become indispensable parts of our lives. Security vulnerabilities in these systems could cause financial losses, privacy/safety compromises, and operational interruptions. This paper demonstrates through examples, that technical security solutions for these information systems, alone, are not sufficient to protect individuals and their assets from attacks. It proposes to complement (...
