  • Application of Dual-process Theory to Information Systems:Current and Future Research Directions

    Application of Dual-process Theory to Information Systems: Current and Future Research Directions addresses the dual-process approach to attitude formation as it has been applied to the domain of Information Systems (IS). It describes twenty six empirical research studies published in the IS literature that have been based on the Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM) or the Heuristic Systematic Model (HSM) - variants of the dual-process approach. Some of the IS phenomena that these studies have explored include the IS training process, website trust and privacy assurance, perceptions of online health records, adoption of expert systems' advice, design of recommendation systems, computer-mediated communication, and knowledge management. Application of Dual-process Theory to Information Systems: Current and Future Research Directions starts by clarifying exactly what a dual-process approach is and how to apply it. The author then defines a logical schema for categorizing the extant dual-p ocess IS research, using it to group these studies into these categories and briefly reviewing each study. This helps to address the need to understand these studies in relation to each other with the aim of integrating them and forestalling fragmentation of this body of work. The discussion section begins by identifying three streams of this research that are outliers, and then examines those heuristic cues and moderating factors in the studies reviewed that are clearly IS constructs; suggesting they bear further dual-process based IS research. Finally, the author elucidates three particular IS phenomena that present excellent opportunities for applying this approach in the future: (1) information filtering during complex problem solving, (2) how trust and credibility assessment interact with system design features, and (3) organizational knowledge work.

  • Health-Integrated System Paradigm: Diabetes Management

    Diabetes mellitus is a common disease, affecting millions of people in Europe and throughout the world. People suffering from chronic diseases like diabetes are ideal candidates for telemonitoring. In the last decade, technological progress in telemedicine has had a positive impact on health care management. It is now possible to provide telemetric services to a large number of patients using relatively simple telemetric applications. This chapter presents METABO system, focusing particularly on the context of its implementation, the user requirements, and problems faced and solved during the development process. The METABO system has been contrasted to the state of the art in telemedical diabetes management in order to underline its innovativeness. The main innovation is the ability to analyze and interpret the context-sensitive fusion of information from both body and environmental monitoring noninvasive devices and depict a complete framework of patient's status, enabling behavior prediction and consequent feedback generation.

  • Strategic Health Technology Incorporation

    Technology is essential to the delivery of health care but it is still only a tool that needs to be deployed wisely to ensure beneficial outcomes at reasonable costs. Among various categories of health technology, medical equipment has the unique distinction of requiring both high initial investments and costly maintenance during its entire useful life. This characteristic does not, however, imply that medical equipment is more costly than other categories, provided that it is managed properly. The foundation of a sound technology management process is the planning and acquisition of equipment, collectively called technology incorporation. This lecture presents a rational, strategic process for technology incorporation based on experience, some successful and many unsuccessful, accumulated in industrialized and developing countries over the last three decades. The planning step is focused on establishing a Technology Incorporation Plan (TIP) using data collected from an audit of exist ng technology, evaluating needs, impacts, costs, and benefits, and consolidating the information collected for decision making. The acquisition step implements TIP by selecting equipment based on technical, regulatory, financial, and supplier considerations, and procuring it using one of the multiple forms of purchasing or agreements with suppliers. This incorporation process is generic enough to be used, with suitable adaptations, for a wide variety of health organizations with different sizes and acuity levels, ranging from health clinics to community hospitals to major teaching hospitals and even to entire health systems. Such a broadly applicable process is possible because it is based on a conceptual framework composed of in-depth analysis of the basic principles that govern each stage of technology lifecycle. Using this incorporation process, successful TIPs have been created and implemented, thereby contributing to the improvement of healthcare services and limiting the associa ed expenses.

  • Changing the Equation: Patient Access to Information

    The healthcare industry has been slow to join the information technology revolution; handwritten records are still the primary means of organizing patient care. Concerns about patient privacy, the difficulty of developing appropriate computing tools and information technology, high costs, and the resistance of some physicians and nurses have hampered the use of technology in health care. In 2009, the U.S. government committed billions of dollars to health care technology. Many questions remain, however, about how to deploy these resources. In Health Informatics, experts in technology, joined by clinicians, use diabetes--a costly, complex, and widespread disease that involves nearly every facet of the health care system--to examine the challenges of using the tools of information technology to improve patient care. Unlike other books on medical informatics that discuss such topics as computerized order entry and digital medical records, Health Informatics focuses on the patient, charting the information problems patients encounter in different stages of the disease. [Chapters discuss ubiquitous computing as a tool to move diabetes care out of the doctor's office, technology and chronic disease management, educational gaming as a way to help patients understand their disease, patient access to information, and methodological and theoretical concerns.] We need both technologists and providers at the drawing board in order to design and deploy effective digital tools for health care. This book examines and exemplifies this necessary collaboration.

  • IT in Health and Education

    Today's rapid growth in information technology has occurred without a full understanding of the human consequences of its use -- on individuals, on organizations, and on society as a whole. As a result, initial expectations have frequently not been met, and a backlash has developed. Clearly a more realistic approach to information technology is needed, and applied psychology can offer great help in this effort.This book takes a problem-centered approach to questions of usability, applicability, and acceptability, giving an overview of current research on information technology at work, at home, in education, and in medicine, and where possible, making recommendations for the future. Chapters cover psychology and information technology; management, workers, and the new technologies; factory automation; ergonomics and the new technologies; office systems; expert systems in the health field; health care; the disabled; computers in education; attitudes toward the new technologies; information technology and home-based services; and information technology in the home.Distributed for The British Psychological Society.

  • eMaintenance

    The eMaintenance solutions consolidate computing and information and communication technologies (ICT) with prognostics and health management (PHM) for maintenance decision‐making. The development to eMaintenance is to move from reactive to predictive maintenance. The role of technology in maintenance management has developed through the years, first beginning with a manual system, followed by a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), and the eMaintenance management system (EMMS). Since analytics is the process of generating knowledge based on understanding, maintenance analytics (MA) is considered as big data analytics for maintenance. Enhanced reliability and reduced costs by predictive maintenance can help to reduce the economic risks for industrial system providers. Establishment of knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) mechanisms for maintenance decision support can be facilitated through provision of a meta‐level model through which a range of concepts, models, techniques, and methodologies can either be clarified and/or integrated.

  • PHM of Light‐Emitting Diodes

    This chapter provides an overview of the prognostics and health management (PHM) methods applied to light‐emitting diodes (LEDs). These methods include optimizing LED design with simulations, shortening qualification test times, enabling condition‐based maintenance (CBM) for LED systems, and providing information for return on investment (ROI) analysis. The simulation has unique characteristics for LED lighting systems, such as parameter selections and assumptions. The chapter describes the latest information regarding the prognostics of high‐power white LEDs and physical modeling and failure analysis for LEDs. It also provides an overview of the available prognostic methods and models that have been applied to both LED devices and LED systems. These methods include statistical regression, static Bayesian network (BN), Kalman filtering (KF), particle filtering (PF), artificial neural network (ANN), and physics‐based methods. Degradation processes vary one‐directionally and are monotonic, for example, light output degradation processes of LEDs.

  • PHM Software for Electronics

    The data‐driven prognostics and systems health management (PHM) software can be used for diagnostic and prognostics purposes, in addition to data cleaning. The simulation assisted reliability assessment (SARA) software developed by the center for advanced life cycle engineering (CALCE) is an example of a simulation environment for conducting virtual qualification and test of electronic products. One important consideration when designing software is the direction of data flow. Accordingly, the software organizes the algorithms into the following five broad classes of PHM algorithms: data pre‐processing, feature discovery, anomaly detection, diagnostics/classification, and prognostics/modeling. PHM information can be used for maintenance forecasting and decisions that minimize life‐cycle costs or maximize availability. To enable PHM, physics‐of‐failure (PoF) and data‐driven approaches have been studied. The PoF‐based approach deals with the application of first principles models to understand the various failure mechanisms and thereby predicts the remaining useful life (RUL) and reliability of electronic systems/components.
