Research data is a dynamic and evolving entity and the ability to cite such data depends on recreating the same datasets utilized in the original research. Despite the availability of several existing technologies, most data repositories lack the necessary setup to recreate a point-in-time snapshot of data, let alone long-term sustainability of dynamic data without restoring an entire database. Through this project, we adopted a subset of the Research Data Alliance data citation working group recommendations to establish a robust informatics system supporting dynamic data and its use for reproducible research within our evolving clinical data repository...

INTRODUCTION: The convergence of biomedical informatics and translational genomics is changing the way we practice. Primary care will play a pivotal role in this transformation. We therefore sought to assess general knowledge about genetic testing among outpatient internal medicine providers, and the patients that they serve across a five state region in the Midwest. METHODS: One thousand take-home paper surveys were created and distributed to internal medicine patients at 13 Midwestern clinics...

The increasing recognition of the value of effective interprofessional collaboration has promoted interprofessional education (IPE) among healthcare professionals. The IPE pilot program initiative at UTHealth matriculated students from the disciplines of biomedical informatics, biomedical sciences, dentistry, medicine, nursing and public health. There has been a pressing need for developing an assessment tool in reflecting how IPE participants recognize and understand the other disciplines including clinical informatics in nowadays' practice...

Cohort identification for clinical studies tends to be laborious, time-consuming, and expensive. Developing automated or semi-automated methods for cohort identification is one of the "holy grails" in the field of biomedical informatics. We propose a high-throughput similarity-based cohort identification algorithm by applying numerical abstractions on Electronic Health Records (EHR) data. We implement this algorithm using the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) Common Data Model (CDM), which enables sites using this standardized EHR data representation to avail this algorithm with minimum effort for local implementation...

Neonatal period represents first 28 days of life, which is the most vulnerable time for a child's survival especially for the preterm babies. High neonatal mortality is a prominent and persistent problem across the globe. Non-availability of trained staff and infrastructure are the major recognized hurdles in the quality care of these neonates. Hourly progress growth charts and reports are still maintained manually by nurses along with continuous calculation of drug dosage and nutrition as per the changing weight of the baby...

Accreditation is an important process ensuring quality of academic programs in Biomedical Informatics. Certification ensures standards in knowledge and skills of professionals in Health Informatics. The process of Accreditation is analyzed for its pros and cons. Procedures are applied to ensure the completion of accreditation of a program is transparent, objective and leads in quality qualifications. Finally, the logistics required for Accreditation are calculated in terms of human resources as well to meeting cost expectations...

Only once we agree upon our understanding of what words really mean can we debate whether a concept, represented by those words, is or not well represented significantly in specific application. In a previous paper we presented an innovative point of view on deeper wellbeing understanding towards its increased, effective Health Informatics and clinical usage and applications. Medicine was always the art and science of healing. The science became more and more a mechanistic technology; the art was dropped altogether...

Education in biomedical and health informatics (BMHI) has been established in many countries throughout the world. For degree programs in BMHI we can distinguish between those that are completely stand-alone or dedicated to the discipline vs. those that are integrated within another program. After running integrated degree medical informatics programs at TU Braunschweig for 10 years at the B.Sc. and for 15 years at the M.Sc level, we (1) report about this educational approach, (2) analyze recommendations on, implementations of, and experiences with degree educational programs in BMHI worldwide, (3) summarize our lessons learned with the integrated approach at TU Braunschweig, and (4) suggest an answer to the question, whether degree programs in biomedical and health informatics should be dedicated or integrated...

Animal research has constituted a fundamental means to achieve groundbreaking therapies for human disease. However, for complex diseases, promising preclinical results have failed to translate to the clinic. Reasons for this disparity are multifactorial. These include the challenges inherent in modeling complex disease in animals, as well issues of study design, reproducibility and operational norms within the biomedical research enterprise. In this issue, we explore the range of information resources available for the comparative study of disease, as well as challenges to the ultimate translation of preclinical findings...

Biomedical or clinical informatics is the transdisciplinary field that studies and develops effective uses of biomedical data, information technology innovations, and medical knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving, and decision making, with an emphasis on improving human health. Given the ongoing advances in information technology, the field of informatics is becoming important to clinical practice and to residency education. This article will discuss how informatics is specifically relevant to residency education and the different ways to incorporate informatics into residency education, and will highlight applications of current technology in the context of residency education...

BACKGROUND: It is 50 years since the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP) Societies approved the formation of a new Technical Committee (TC) 4 on Medical Information Processing under the leadership of Professor Francois Grémy, which was the direct precursor of the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA). OBJECTIVES: The goals of this paper are to give a very brief overview of early international developments leading to informatics in medicine, with the origins of the applications of computers to medicine in the USA and Europe, and two meetings - of the International Society of Cybernetic Medicine, and the Elsinore Meetings on Hospital Information Systems - that took place in 1966...

INTRODUCTION: Various health-related data, subsequently called Person Generated Health Data (PGHD), is being collected by patients or presumably healthy individuals as well as about them as much as they become available as measurable properties in their work, home, and other environments. Despite that such data was originally just collected and used for dedicated predefined purposes, more recently it is regarded as untapped resources that call for secondary use. METHOD: Since the secondary use of PGHD is still at its early evolving stage, we have chosen, in this paper, to produce an outline of best practices, as opposed to a systematic review...
