This study investigated the electronic medical record system (EMR) of Zonguldak Karaelmas University Hospital which is in use for the last six years. The recommendations for the development of EMR and more efficient use of the system are principle goal of this study. The purposes of this study include promoting the implementation of EMR by introducing the advantages and disadvantages from the user’s point of view. While the successful applications of EMR systems are evident in western word, the implementation of EMR to a hospital information system is a new topic in Turkey. Some applications are mainly in the form of converting the paper-based medical record systems to the fully automated electronic record systems. Our study is a pioneering attempt to analyze the users’ opinion for a fully integrated EMR system in a Turkish academic hospital. The suggestions such as restricting the access, improving the hardware, integrating to the internet are made for the improvement of the system in future.

Evaluation of an electronic medical record system : Zonguldak Karaelmas University Hospital survey
Uğurbaş, Suat Hayri; Erdil, Erkan; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2006)
The present study investigated the electronic medical record system (EMR) of Zonguldak Karaelmas University Hospital which is used for six years now. The advantages and disadvantages of an EMR system in comparison with paper medical records were evaluated based on the user’s opinion. The recommendations for the development of EMR and more efficient use of the system are principle goals of this study. The purposes of this thesis include promoting the implantation of EMR by introducing the advantages and disa...
An Extensible security infrastructure for the secondary use of electronic health records in clinical research
Eryılmaz, Elif; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
In order to facilitate clinical research studies re-using Electronic Health Records (EHR) has a great potential. Besides interoperability, safeguarding the security and privacy of the medical data in the context of secondary use for clinical research is one of the most important challenges in this respect. In order to ensure that the clinical information is shared among EHR systems and clinical research systems in an ethical and safe way, there needs to be standards-based and adaptable security and privacy ...
An Advanced personal health record platform for patient empowerment
Postacı, Şenan; Çiçekli Kesim, Nihan; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
In recent years, many Personal Health Record (PHR) systems have been developed to retrieve patients’ Electonic Health Records (EHRs) from external sources. However, current PHRs can provide access to only a small number of EHR systems, since there are many di erent interfaces, data formats and medical terminologies among di erent systems. When this is the case, all these diversity yields high integration costs. Development of such systems is di cult and expensive because of the reasons such as accessing to ...
Semantic transformation framework to enable statistical research on medical summaries
Paçacı, Anıl; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
One of the important aspects of the clinical research studies carried out in the pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology is the postmarketing drug surveillance. Utilization of the available Electronic Health Record (EHR) data is key to complement and strengthen the postmarketing safety studies. In addition, EHRs provide a huge, but still under-utilized source of information for the observational studies in clinical research. However, use of different EHR data models and vocabularies presents an important...
Development of a mobile health acceptance model: an empirical investigation on physicians
Sezgin, Emre; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2016)
The study aims to investigate physicians’ intentions towards using mobile health (mHealth) applications. In order to understand and to reveal the influencing factors, a systematic method was followed. At the first phase, a literature research was conducted to identify studies in eHealth and mHealth domains. Literature research helped to reach to the studies about adoption and acceptance of health information systems by healthcare providers, employing behavioral acceptance theories. Following that, the conce...
