  • Monitoring and evaluating implemented his

    As early as 1973, Richard Nolan described a concept of stages in monitoring computer applications. By 1979 he refined his stages because of the experiences many companies in business had with computer proliferation. The stages that Nolan described may be applied to Hospital Information System dynamics. He described a time when an institution may undergo a transition from computer management to data resource management. It is a stage in the process of computer applications that evaluates the proposed change, considers the users new sophistication with the system, and alerts administrative personnel about the impact of proposed changes. This paper presents an organizational concept for monitoring 20 elements when considering HIS changes so that unilateral changes that are uncoordinated can be avoided. When a hospital reaches a stage where changes in the system, both negative and positive can be monitored and evaluated, the organization is entering a stage of maturity.

  • Time-resolved tryptophan phosphorescence spectroscopy: a sensitive probe of protein folding and structure

    Room-temperature tryptophan phosphorescence from proteins is a sensitive probe of the local structural environment of the luminescent amino acid. Tryptophan phosphorescence lifetimes can vary over 3-4 orders of magnitude depending on the structural rigidity of the emitter environment and the proximity of quenching interactions, and this sensitivity can be used to characterize the local structural environment of the chromophore. Tryptophan phosphorescence lifetime can be easily monitored as a function of time, and thus is capable of producing effectively real-time information on dynamic processes in proteins. We discuss the origins and characteristics of tryptophan phosphorescence, and its application to monitoring folding processes in proteins and to studying protein conformation and flexibility. We also present the extension of phosphorescence techniques to study, for the first time, triplet emission at room temperature from tryptophan residues engineered into specific positions as reporters of protein structure.

  • Ambient iCare e-services for quality aging: framework and roadmap

    Owing to the significant scale of the aging population and the cost involved, efforts for driving quality lifestyle of the elderly is crucial. Recently, eCare (electronic care) has been an important issue of health care that utilizes the Web technologies to improve the quality of health care. However, existing aging services (health care or eCare) are mostly oriented to clinical gerontology or neurophysiology of aging. This paper devises a novel notion called iCare (intelligent care) which extends eCare (electronic care) technologies to a domain of ambient e-services that meet the desired quality elements. The objective of iCare is to provide quality e-services to the elderly people anywhere and anytime. We also present the iCare e-services framework that comprises an iCare e-service ontology and an e-service provision quality model. This framework also implies a future roadmap of quality-aging e-services that can be particularly accounted as affectionate technologies.

  • Behavioural Prototyping: Making Interactive and Intelligent Systems Meaningful for the User

    The aim of the current studies in this field of research is the development of intelligent and interactive services and systems which will provide users with personalised support. In order to develop these systems and fulfil the intended requirements it is necessary to identify which factors define an intelligent and interactive system - not only from the scientific and developing perspective but mainly from the perspective of the prospective users. The interaction and the perceived as well as the projected qualities of an object will determine the personal benefit and impact on behaviour which a system will have as the user adjusts and interacts with this system based on the mental representations formed before and while interacting with the system. In order to assure that the expectations of the user are met by the technology and thereby facilitate and reinforce the mental representations and models regarding the functioning, meaning and personal link with the technology the behaviour and personality of the user need to be carefully profiled.

  • Fuzzy clustering with spatial constraints

    A novel approach to fuzzy clustering for image segmentation is described. The fuzzy C-means objective function is generalized to include a spatial penalty on the membership functions. The penalty term leads to an iterative algorithm that is only slightly different from the original fuzzy C-means algorithm and allows the estimation of spatially smooth membership functions. To determine the strength of the penalty term, a criterion based on cross-validation is employed. The new algorithm is applied to simulated and real magnetic resonance images and is shown to be more robust to noise and other artifacts than the standard algorithm.

  • U-Health Smart Home

    A new generation of a ubiquitous health smart home is being developed to support the elderly and/or people with chronic diseases in their own home. The goal of the U-Health smart home is to help the elderly to continue to live a more independent life as long as possible in their own home while being monitored and assisted in an unobtrusive manner. This concept of a ubiquitous health care (U-Health) smart home for the elderly has been identified by governments and medical institutions as an important part of the economical, technological, and socially acceptable solution to maintain the health welfare system viable for future generation.

  • The use of «Peak & Neuronation» digital applications for the inclusion of older adults: A case study at USALBI

    Given the physiological and cognitive degeneration associated with aging, it is important to promote initiatives that prevent situations that may increase dementia among the elderly. The objective of the research was to investigate whether the use of Peak & Neuronation digital applications can contribute to the active aging of the elderly, with respect to the cognitive training they provide. The group of 18 students from the Computer Science discipline of the University of Albacetetrense (USALBI), aged 56-80, was involved. The applied methodology was qualitative: the case study; nonparticipating observation; surveys by questionnaire; semistructured interviews. The analysis of the data was collected in 12 practical sessions of utilization of the APPs demonstrated to be an added value and that should be referenced as digital tools within the framework of the cognitive training of the elderly.

  • Simulations on The Population and Disease in Japan

    Future Japanese population pyramid and death toll are similarity. According to the national census performed in last October, Japan entered population decline society. A trend of population of man and woman is shown until 2060. A calculation results are shown every five years. The population is classified in an age-grade every 5 years old. The population of 5 years old rank is divided into man and woman, and resulting figures are shown. Aging rate is obtained based on the constitution of population. We can predict a death toll of the modern Japanese three major causes of deaths (malignant neoplasms, heart diseases, cerebro-vascular diseases) by using the death rate for three diseases for every age-grade
