Medical devices are essential to the practice of modern healthcare services. Their benefits will increase if clinical software applications can seamlessly acquire the medical device data. The need to represent medical device observations in a format that can be consumable by clinical applications has already been recognized by the industry. Yet, the solutions proposed involve bilateral mappings from the ISO/IEEE 11073 Domain Information Model (DIM) to specific message or document standards. Considering that there are many different types of clinical applications such as the electronic health record and the personal health record systems, the clinical workflows, and the clinical decision support systems each conforming to different standard interfaces, detailing a mapping mechanism for every one of them introduces significant work and, thus, limits the potential health benefits of medical devices. In this paper, to facilitate the interoperability of clinical applications and the medical device data, we use the ISO/IEEE 11073 DIM to derive an HL7 v3 Refined Message Information Model (RMIM) of the medical device domain from the HL7 v3 Reference Information Mode (RIM). This makes it possible to trace the medical device data back to a standard common denominator, that is, HL7 v3 RIM from which all the other medical domains under HL7 v3 are derived. Hence, once the medical device data are obtained in the RMIM format, it can easily be transformed into HL7-based standard interfaces through XML transformations because these interfaces all have their building blocks from the same RIM. To demonstrate this, we provide the mappings from the developed RMIM to some of the widely used HL7 v3-based standard interfaces.

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...
Incorporation of Personal Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Data into a National Level Electronic Health Record for Disease Risk Assessment, Part 1: An Overview of Requirements
Beyan, Timur; Aydın Son, Yeşim (JMIR Publications Inc., 2014-7-24)
Background: Personalized medicine approaches provide opportunities for predictive and preventive medicine. Using genomic, clinical, environmental, and behavioral data, tracking and management of individual wellness is possible. A prolific way to carry this personalized approach into routine practices can be accomplished by integrating clinical interpretations of genomic variations into electronic medical records (EMRs)/electronic health records (EHRs). Today, various central EHR infrastructures have been...
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 Method to improve the communication between information technology and healthcare professionals during mobile healthcare application development
Erturan, Yusuf Nasuh; Aydın Son, Yeşim; Tokdemir, Gül; Department of Health Informatics (2013)
Mobile healthcare applications constitute alternative tools to increase service quality and effectiveness, decrease time spent on service presentation and therefore they are reforming and changing healthcare service delivery. Achievement in this reform depends on the effectiveness of the developed mobile healthcare applications. Development of effective mobile healthcare applications, on the other hand, requires detailed domain knowledge which normally IT professionals do not have. To provide a solution to ...
Behavioural intension analysis of avicenna® hospital information system

"Hospital Information Systems" are designed for improving the health quality of people and for the management of all the hospital's medical and administrative information in order to enable health professionals to perform their jobs effectively and efficiency. However the main problem has been raising that is whether hospital personnel want to use these systems while performing their tasks. This study tests an extended model by adding some factors to the original model that is based on the literature: techn...
