    "Foreword Personal health information comprises the most sensitive and intimate details of one's life, such as those relating to one's physical or mental health, and the health history of one's family. Intuitively, we understand the importance of protecting health information in order to ensure the confidentiality of such personal data and the privacy of the individual to whom it relates. Personal health information must also be accurate, complete, and accessible to health care practitioners in order to provide individuals with necessary health care. At a broader level, for secondary uses that go beyond the treatment of the individual, health-related data are needed for the benefit of society as a whole. These vitally important secondary uses include activities to improve the quality of care, health research, and the management of publicly funded health care systems. As the information and privacy commissioner of Ontario, Canada, my role includes the oversight of health privacy legislation governing the collection, use, and disclosure of personal health information by organizations and individuals involved in the delivery of health care services. Ontario's Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) aims to respect an individual's right to privacy in relationship to his or her own personal health information while accommodating the legitimate need to access health information for well-defined purposes. PHIPA does this in part by establishing clear rules for the use and disclosure of personal health information for secondary purposes. The object of these rules is to maximize the benefits of both respecting personal privacy and making health information accessible for purposes that serve society as a whole"--Provided by publisher.

    This is a meticulously detailed chronological record of significant events in the history of medical informatics and their impact on direct patient care and clinical research, offering a representative sampling of published contributions to the field. The History of Medical Informatics in the United States has been restructured within this new edition, reflecting the transformation medical informatics has undergone in the years since 1990. The systems that were once exclusively institutionally driven - hospital, multihospital, and outpatient information systems - are today joined by systems that are driven by clinical subspecialties, nursing, pathology, clinical laboratory, pharmacy, imaging, and more. At the core is the person - not the clinician, not the institution - whose health all these systems are designed to serve. A group of world-renowned authors have joined forces with Dr Marion Ball to bring Dr Collen's incredible work to press. These recognized leaders in medical informatics, many of whom are recipients of the Morris F. Collen Award in Medical Informatics and were friends of or mentored by Dr Collen, carefully reviewed, editing and updating his draft chapters. This has resulted in the most thorough history of the subject imaginable, and also provides readers with a roadmap for the subject well into later in the century.

    E-health is closely related with networks and telecommunications when dealing with applications of collecting or transferring medical data from distant locations for performing remote medical collaborations and diagnosis. In this book we provide an overview of the fields of image and signal processing for networked and distributed e-health applications and their supporting technologies. The book is structured in 10 chapters, starting the discussion from the lower end, that of acquisition and processing of biosignals and medical images and ending in complex virtual reality systems and techniques providing more intuitive interaction in a networked medical environment. The book also discusses networked clinical decision support systems and corresponding medical standards, WWW-based applications, medical collaborative platforms, wireless networking, and the concepts of ambient intelligence and pervasive computing in electronic healthcare systems.

    This book reviews and defines the current state of the art for informatics education in medicine and health care. This field has undergone considerable change as the field of informatics itself has evolved. Twenty years ago almost the only individuals involved in health care who had even heard the term "informatics" were those who identified themselves as medical or nursing informaticians. Today, we have a variety of subfields of informatics including not just medical and nursing informatics, but informatics applied to specific health professions (such as dental or pharmacy informatics), as well as biomedical informatics, bioinformatics and public health informatics. Informatics Education in Health Care addresses the broad range of informatics education programs available today. The Editor and very experienced internationally recognized informatics educators who have contributed to this work have made the tacit knowledge explicit and shared some of the lessons they have learned. This book therefore represents the key reference for all involved in the informatics education whether they be trainers or trainees.

    Over the last 30-40 years, information technology (IT) has revolutionized professional life for millions of people around the world. IT has reduced the need for bulk storage of paper records by organizations, has enabled automation of tasks that were previously repetitive and labor-intensive, and carry them out in a fast and accurate way, has enabled economies of scale, improved efficiencies and enabled new ways of working that were hitherto impossible. In parallel with the rise of IT during the last 40 years, the role of the pharmacist - and the society in which pharmacists work - has changed considerably. Pharmacists are no longer principally compounders of medicines, but they are still responsible for ensuring that the patient receives the correct medicine, ensuring that the patient understands why they should take their medicine, and helping the patient with taking the medicine and being concordant with therapy.Information Technology in Pharmacy: an Integrated Approach provides a concise and practical general introduction to pharmacy IT, discusses issues surrounding the adoption of technology and how technologies may be utlilized by the pharmacy profession to exercise new professional roles and achieve new professional aspirations. This book will be of prime interest to practicing pharmacists at all levels, pharmacy students and pharmacy educators, but also to health informaticians, hospital and health care system administrators.

    Secondary use of electronic health record (EHR) data has the potential to unlock novel insight into human pathophysiology. While EHR data has often been used in retrospective studies, management of public health, and to improve patient safety, its use in discovering underlying molecular mechanisms of human disease and pathophysiology has been limited. Much of this can be attributed to the differing priorities between healthcare providers and basic biological researchers. The advent of biobanks that collect physiological measurements as well as tissue samples and molecular measurements promises to address this issue. However, the sheer number of different biological and clinical measurement modalities hinders the generation of a truly complete view of the human organism. The increased adoption of EHRs as well as growing biological data repositories enables researchers to answer biological questions applicable to the human population. The goal is not to treat humans as experimental organisms, but rather to gain as much knowledge as possible from every patient seen. By viewing EHRs as a repository of perturbations and their associated physiological consequences we can begin to design experiments that leverage EHR data to generate hypotheses that can be further evaluated. This thesis aims to describe methods to summarize EHR biomarker data in a systematic way to enable downstream analysis as well as methods for integrating EHR data and disparate biological data. I will describe the creation of the "clinarray" and its application to specific disease populations to differentiate patients by severity and to discover latent physiological factors associated with disease. I will also describe how to aggregate and analyze clinarrays from across the EHR to build models of aging. Finally I will discuss the use of diseases to integrate EHR data with gene expression data from a disparate biological data source to discover genes related to aging and to generate hypotheses for relationships between biomarkers and genes. The integration of readily available clinical and biological data promises to improve our understanding of phenomics without impacting patient care and adding an unnecessary burden to the healthcare system. It is important for biological research to leverage the increased amount of molecular and environmental data stored in EHRs to build a more complete view of the human organism.

    Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) have identified over 4,500 common variants in the human genome that are statistically associated with diseases and other phenotypical traits. Most identified associations, however, only have a small effect on disease risk, and their relevance in a clinical setting remains the subject of extensive debate. In this thesis I present three integrative analysis directions that extend on GWAS by developing new methods, by using genotyping data to ask new questions, and by integrating additional types of data to generate functional hypotheses about the biological processes underlying associations. First, I introduce a new classifier-based methodology that identifies similarities in the genetic architecture of diseases. This method can successfully identify both known and novel relationships between common diseases. Second, I show how control individuals from a GWAS can be used to detect genetic differences between the pseudoautosomal regions of chromosomes X and Y in the general population. Finally, I present an approach that integrates experimental data generated by the ENCODE consortium in order to identify functional Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). These functional SNPs are associated with a phenotype, either directly or through linkage disequilibrium, and overlap a functional region of the genome such as a transcribed region or a transcription factor binding site. Up to 80% of all associations previously reported in a GWAS can be mapped to a functional SNP.

    This textbook offers an insightful study of the intelligent Internet-driven revolutionary and fundamental forces at work in society. Readers will have access to tools and techniques to mentor and monitor these forces rather than be driven by changes in Internet technology and flow of money. These submerged social and human forces form a powerful synergistic foursome web of (a) processor technology, (b) evolving wireless networks of the next generation, (c) the intelligent Internet, and (d) the motivation that drives individuals and corporations. In unison, the technological forces can tear human lives apart for the passive or provide a cohesive set of opportunities for the knowledgeable to lead and reap the rewards in the evolved knowledge society. The book also provides in-depth coverage of the functions embedded in modern processors and intelligent communication networks. It focuses on the convergence of the design of modern processor technologies with the switching and routing methodologies of global intelligent networks. Most of the concepts that are generic to the design of terra-flop parallel processors and the terra-bit fiber-optic networks are presented.

    A growing, aging population; the rise to epidemic proportions of various chronic diseases; competing, often overlapping medical technologies; and of course, skyrocketing costs compounded by waste and inefficiency - these are just a few of the multifarious challenges currently facing healthcare delivery. An unexpected source of solutions is being imported from the manufacturing sector: lean thinking. "Lean Principles for Healthcare" presents a conceptual framework, management principles, and practical tools for professionals tasked with designing and implementing modern, streamlined healthcare systems or overhauling faulty ones. Focusing on core components such as knowledge management, e-health, patient-centeredness, and collaborative care, chapters illustrate lean concepts in action across specialties (as diverse as nursing, urology, and emergency care) and around the globe. Extended case examples show health systems responding to consumer needs and provider realities with equal efficiency and effectiveness, and improved quality and patient outcomes. Further, contributors tackle the gamut of technological, medical, cultural, and business issues.

    Making Computerized Provider Order Entry Work is neither a scientific reference guide into medical informatics nor a book on theory or a summary of research studies in the field, but rather it is a practical guide to visioning and executing successful automation of physician workflow in the hospital environment. This adaptation of workflow is the work of a team, with leadership, clear vision, dedication, commitment, external drivers, experience, and the tireless work of those before us in this industry, who have paved the way with both successes and failure.Throughout the book, the author shares hard lessons-learned and guides the reader through the early warning signs that will help avoid the pitfalls. As systems progress, and the regulatory environments change, there will be new challenges and opportunities that will confront those setting up automated physician workflows. However, this book highlights and discusses all of the principles involved such as vision, leadership, project management and change management, which will always need to be incorporated to ensure project success. As such this book will be an important reference for anyone involved in the setting up or use of such systems from the physicians and medical professionals themselves through the medical informaticist to health system executives and other decision makers.

    Protein phosphorylation provides a mechanism for the rapid, reversible control of protein function. Phosphorylation adds negative charge to amino acid side chains, and negatively charged amino acids (Asp/Glu) can sometimes mimic the phosphorylated state of a protein. Using a comparative genomics approach, I show that nature also employs this trick in reverse by evolving serine, threonine, and tyrosine phosphorylation sites from Asp/Glu residues. Structures of three proteins where phosphosites evolved from acidic residues (DNA topoisomerase II, enolase, and C-Raf) show that the relevant acidic residues are present in salt bridges with conserved basic residues, and that phosphorylation has the potential to conditionally restore the salt bridges. The evolution of phosphorylation sites from glutamate and aspartate provides a rationale for why phosphorylation sometimes activates proteins, and helps explain the origins of this important and complex process. After using comparative genomics to uncover the evolutionary origins of phosphorylation, I expanded my work to attempt to predict novel phosphorylation sites using the KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes) database of proteins and ortholog families. By examining aligned sites within families of proteins for the trends found in my initial investigation, I sought to improve ways of identifying promising potential phosphorylation sites.

    Over the years, medical informatics has matured into a true scientific discipline. Fundamental and applied aspects are now taught in various fields of health, including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing and public health. Medical informatics is also often included in the curricula of many other disciplines, including the life sciences, engineering and economics. Medical informatics is a complex and rapidly changing discipline. Relatively few books have been published on the subject, and they rapidly become obsolete. This book is the fruit of a collaborative effort between authors teaching medical informatics in France and others who are conducting research in this field. In addition, an international perspective was pursued, as reflected in the inclusion of various developments and actions in both the USA and Europe. This book is divided into 18 chapters, all of which include learning objectives, recommendations for further reading, exercises and bibliographic references.

    One of the grand challenges in genomic medicine is to translate fundamental scientific discoveries regarding the structure, variation, and function of the genomes of individuals and populations towards improved health outcomes. The main hypothesis of this thesis is that all forms of human genetic variation contributing to the etiology and pathophysiology of modern human diseases have distinct and quantifiable evolutionary histories, which can be computed for every position in the human genome independent of human population characteristics, and used as informative quantitative priors in the discovery and assessment of variants of clinical importance in modern human populations. To enable robust evaluation of the specific questions posed by this thesis, I first explore the necessary properties and theoretical basis for a null evolutionary hypothesis for Evolutionary Genomic Medicine, and conclude that the well-established Neutral Theory of Molecular Evolution provides a sound theoretical and methodological basis for evaluating alternative hypothesis in Evolutionary Genomic Medicine. Due to advances in multiplex genotyping technologies, genome-wide associations studies (GWAS), have emerged as the premier modality for discovery and assessment clinical genomic variation. Although these efforts have been successful in revealing thousands variants robustly associated with a broad spectrum of clinical phenotypes, the variants established by the GWAS approach have so far failed to explain large proportions of the known genetic variance associated with important clinical traits such as Type 2 Diabetes and Hypertension. Because disease-associated variation is linked with genomic loci of functional importance which have undergone evolutionary selection, and even the proxy loci (e.g. tagging SNPs) used to probe for disease associated loci themselves have quantifiable evolutionary histories, I evaluate a compendium of disease-associated variants to evaluate the effect of long-term evolutionary histories on the discovery of disease-associated variants. Through this work I demonstrate that disease-associated variants have distinct evolutionary properties, and that evolutionary features of positions can be incorporated as priors to improve discovery of disease-associated variants. A similar approach is applied to evaluate pharmacogenomics variants associated with warfarin, demonstrating that evolutionary features of genomic positions improve clinical assessment of pharmacogenomics variation. Through the findings and insights gained from efforts in pursuit of my thesis which are reported here, my collaborators and I clearly demonstrate that quantitative evolutionary features can be estimated for each position in the human genome across species, and then applied to modern human population data to improve discovery and assessment of genomic variation associated with clinical phenotypes.

    This volume covers classic as well as cutting-edge topics on the analysis of clinical trial data in biomedical and psychosocial research and discusses each topic in an expository and user-friendly fashion. Starting with survival data analysis, this book transitions from such a classic topic to modern issues by stepping through diagnostic test and instrument assessment, sequential and dynamic treatment regimen, cost-effectiveness evaluation, equivalence testing. As some type of cancer such as the effect of smoking on lung cancer cannot be studied using randomized trials, a chapter on analysis of non-randomized studies is also included. The book concludes with a chapter discussing the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in developing on person-centered treatment regimens. The book provides an overview of the primary statistical and data analytic issues associated with each of the selected topics, followed by a discussion of approaches for tackling such issues and available software packages for carrying out the analyses. Medical researchers with some background in clinical trial design and regression analysis as well as biostatisticians will find this book informative and helpful.

    There are clear physiological differences between men and women, including dimorphism in disease susceptibility and treatment response. These disparities often stem from biological differences between the sexes. Sex matters at every level of biology, including genes, proteins, pathways and tissues. Sex chromosomes are fundamental determinants of genetic makeup; sex hormones regulate the expression of thousands of genes; immune response pathways differ between the sexes; and clinical variables like heart rate and pain intensity are also divergent. With current technological advances in high-throughput measurement modalities, we can simultaneously probe every gene in the genome or record millions of clinical features in databases for research. However, investigators using large-scale data sources often ignore the question of sex differences. Many experimental studies use only male animals, and clinical trials often exclude one sex in an attempt to reduce variability in their results. This has led to many pharmaceuticals failing to receive approval by the Food and Drug Administration due to toxicity or lack of efficacy in the untested sex. Rather than completely ignoring sex or viewing it only as a variable to control for, we should make sex differences research a priority of every study. In particular, we should incorporate sex analysis into large-scale genomics, proteomics and clinical analyses. In addition, integrating different types of data will enable more powerful mechanistic studies. Investigating sex differences can lead to new insights about how disease operates differently in men and women. These insights will in turn lead us closer to the goal of personalized medicine for both men and women. In this thesis, I describe methods to address informatics challenges in performing sex-differentiated analysis of high-throughput datasets. In particular, I show that I have (1) developed a novel statistical method to systematically analyze genome-wide association study data for sex differences, (2) applied the method to discover and validate a novel sex difference in a top Crohn's disease risk gene, (3) developed methods to mine large electronic medical record databases to discover sex differences in clinical pain measures, and (4) modeled sex-specific gene-gene interactions to discover molecular sex differences in Alzheimer's disease. This dissertation contains a set of methods for (1) genomics and other data-driven researchers to discover sex differences in molecular and clinical measurements and (2) sex differences researchers to integrate large-scale data sources. Many of the methods I have developed are generalizable to any situation in disease or genomics research with a binary variable of interest.

    "Advances in the biomedical sciences, especially genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, taken together with the expanding use of electronic health records, are radically changing the IT infrastructure and software applications needed to support the transfer of knowledge from bench to bedside. Pediatric Biomedical Informatics: Computer Applications in Pediatric Research describes the core resources in informatics necessary to support biomedical research programs and how these can best be integrated with hospital systems to receive clinical information that is necessary to conduct translational research. The focus is on the authors' recent practical experiences in establishing an informatics infrastructure in a large research-intensive children's hospital. This book is intended for translational researchers and informaticians in pediatrics, but can also serve as a guide to all institutions facing the challenges of developing and strengthening informatics support for biomedical research. The first section of the book discusses important technical challenges underlying computer-based pediatric research, while subsequent sections discuss informatics applications that support biobanking and a broad range of research programs. Pediatric Biomedical Informatics provides practical insights into the design, implementation, and utilization of informatics infrastructures to optimize care and research to benefit children. Dr. John Hutton is the Vice President and Director of Biomedical Informatics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, USA. He is also Professor of Pediatrics and Associate Dean for Information Services at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine"--Provided by publisher.

    Between rising costs and decreasing accessibility, the present health care picture is fraught with shortcomings--a discouraging scenario for the millions of patients struggling with chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. In response, computer technology is emerging as a key factor in the transition from inefficient centralized health systems toward patient-centered, patient-involved care: pervasive healthcare. In straightforward fashion, Pervasive Health Knowledge Management systematically explains how mobile technologies and knowledge management (KM) can streamline health systems by removing time and place limitations, reducing costs, and giving patients a more proactive part in managing their conditions. The book defines the role of KM in pervasive healthcare and analyzes its component processes and technologies. Chapters examine how and why KM works, review KM initiatives within and outside the U.S., and offer extended coverage of possibilities for ubiquitous computing in managing diabetes. Together, they outline a future that meets mounting chronic health concerns with efficient, cost-effective, patient-empowering strategies. Highlights of the coverage: Implicit and explicit knowledge assets in healthcare.Using pervasive technologies to manage knowledge in crisis situations.Smart phone application design and knowledge management for people with dementia.A pervasive technology solution for supporting diabetes self-care.Examining the business and IT aspects of wireless enabled healthcare solutions.Developing an internet-based chronic disease self-management system. Healthcare administrators and researchers in healthcare management, health policy, and health services research will find detailed in Pervasive Health Knowledge Management a visionary approach to many of the most pressing problems in their fields.
