  • The 3LGM2-Tool to Support Information Management in Health Care

    In industrialized as well as in developing countries the driving force for healthcare has recently been the trend towards a better coordination of care. The focus has been changed from isolated procedures in a single healthcare institution (e.g. a hospital or a general practice) to the patient-oriented care process spreading over institutional boundaries. This should lead to a shift towards better integrated and shared care. Health care professionals in different departments of a hospital but moreover in a region - and in many cases even worldwide - have to cooperate in order to achieve health for the patient. [1] Cooperation needs an adequate system for communicating and processing of information, i.e., an information system, which is that socio- technical subsystem of a (S et of) health care institution(s), which presents information at the right time, in the right place to the right people [2, 3]. Hospital Information Systems (HIS) as well as regional Health Information Systems (rHIS) (consisting of different institutional information systems) are constructed like a (complex of) building(s) out of different and probably heterogeneous bricks and components. Thus cooperation depends especially on the availability of adequate communication links between the institutional information systems and their components. Besides technical problems of communication links there are a lot of complex problems of connecting heterogeneous software components of different vendors and with different database schemata to be solved. Especially the proper application of communication standards like HL7 and DICOM [4-6] needs proper planning and supervision as part of a systematic information management. Like an architect the information manager needs a blueprint or model for the information system's architecture respectively the enterprise architecture [7-9]. In [10] we proposed the 3LGM<sup>2</sup> as a meta model for modeling Information Systems (IS). 3LGM<sup>2</sup> has been designed to describe IS by concepts on three layers. The domain layer consists of enterprise functions and entity types, the logical tool layer focuses on application components and the physical tool layer describes physical data processing components. In contrast to other approaches a lot of inter-layer-relationships exist. 3LGM<sup>2</sup> is defined using the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The meta model has been supplemented by the 3LGM<sup>2</sup> tool [12]. Using 3LGM<sup>2</sup> as the ontological basis this tool enables information managers to graphically design even complex IS. It assists information managers similarly to Computer Aided Design tools (CAD) supporting architects. The tool provides means for analyzing a HIS model and thus for assessing the HIS quality. The talk will focus on the 3LGM<sup>2</sup> tool and its most important features. It will be shown, how a model can be created by graphical user interaction as well as by importing data from other sources. It will be illustrated how the tool's analyzing features support information managers doing their job. Examples will be taken from 3LGM<sup>2</sup> models of the information system of the Leipzig University Hospital and the regional health information system of Saxony, a federal state of Germany.

  • JSF prognostics and health management

    JSF Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) is a comprehensive system for detecting and isolating failures as well as predicting remaining useful life for critical components. The PHM system is a hierarchical distribution of data collection and information management elements, both on-board and off-board that make maximum use of conventional failure symptom-detecting techniques combined with advanced software modeling to achieve excellent failure detection and isolation with zero false alarms. This same system collects and processes performance information on critical components to enable prediction of remaining useful life for those components. The information processed and managed on-board the aircraft enhances the pilot's knowledge of his remaining capabilities in the event of malfunction and, at the same time, triggers the Autonomic Logistics processes by relaying failure information to the ground. The use of on-board processing resources coupled with the Autonomic Logistics System provides operations and support cost savings over legacy aircraft while providing the Warfighter with superb system management capabilities.

  • Air vehicle prognostics and health management

    Affordability in both acquisition and support is a key objective of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program. The concept of Autonomic Logistics, or the automation of previously labor-intensive, routine tasks, has been identified as the enabler of a streamlined support concept. JSF Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) is comprehensive system for detecting and isolating failures as well as predicting remaining useful life for critical components.

  • A medical EEG/video multimedia content description system

    Neurological diagnostic information management for clinical applications requires significant collaboration among clinicians and integration of data in different forms, such as textual records, monitoring video, recorded physiological waveforms, and diagnostic images. In medical settings, these multimedia data are often generated in large amounts and are routinely compared and examined. In order to manage this type of information efficiently, an advanced information management system is investigated which handles not only the traditional textual and pictorial information, but also manages audio and video. This information system utilizes the newly developed MPEG-7 standard (multimedia content description interface standard) which provides a context-based platform for our application. In addition, MPEG-7 allows medical information to be accessed remotely and securely through the Internet.

  • A campus-wide mobile EMS information management system

    Efficient information management is crucial for the timely administration of emergency medical services (EMS). In this paper, we describe a project to design and implement an automatic incident reporting and patient information management system for use by the EMS department at WPI, a small technological university. The EMS personnel are equipped with PDAs to access the system over a wireless LAN. Challenges faced in designing the system included compliance with new medical information regulations, provision of adequate security, interaction on small PDA screens, thin client software design, wireless networking and usability issues

  • HL7 healthcare information management using aspect-oriented programming

    Given the heterogeneity of healthcare software systems, data from each system is often incompatible inhibiting interoperability. To enable the sharing and exchange of healthcare information interoperability standards must be adhered to. Health Level Seven (HL7) is the international standards organisation that promotes and enforces the standardisation of electronic healthcare information to facilitate its exchange and management. Incorporating HL7 functionality into existing applications requires significant modification and intrusive extensions. Using aspect-oriented programming (AOP), we can introduce HL7 functionality into existing applications without the requirement for refactoring or modification. HL7 data formatting affects multiple parts of an application and hence is a ldquocrosscut-ting concernrdquo. These concerns which entwine with base functionality introduce complexity and reduce modularity. A second benefit of AOP is its advanced modularisation capabilities which are capable of modularising ldquocrosscut-ting concernsrdquo. We illustrate the benefits of using AOP in HL7 by example and measure the effects of the approach on healthcare applications.

  • Applying Data Mining for Prostate Cancer

    Facing the phenomenon of "ageing population", the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer has become a serious menpsilas health issue in Taiwan. This study aimed to provide new scientific and quantitative information for traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) physicians in clinical practice of prostate cancer. In this study, data mining techniques were employed to explore the hidden knowledge among meridian energy of prostate cancer from 213 patientspsila health examination data including patient demographics and evaluations for the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test as well as the meridian energy. Through the construction of decision tree, totally ten classification rules for predicting prostate cancer are extracted. The average correction classification accuracy is close to 80%. The findings are considered as helpful reference in diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer for TCM physicians.
