IMIA working group on health record banking - How complex systems can cooperate towards having individual's consolidated data

Shabo, Amnon, Sahama, Tony R., Hofdijk, Jacob, Hafen, Ernst, Bignens, Serge, Goossen, William, Yasnoff, William, & Ball, Marion (2016) IMIA working group on health record banking - How complex systems can cooperate towards having individual's consolidated data. In Health - Exploring Complexity: An Interdisciplinary Systems Approaches, 28 August - 2 September 2016, Munich, Germany.


This workshop aims at discussing alternative approaches to resolving the problem of health information fragmentation, partially resulting from difficulties of health complex systems to semantically interact at the information level. In principle, we challenge the current paradigm of keeping medical records where they were created and discuss an alternative approach in which an individual's health data can be maintained by new entities whose sole responsibility is the sustainability of individual-centric health records. In particular, we will discuss the unique characteristics of the European health information landscape. This workshop is also a business meeting of the IMIA Working Group on Health Record Banking.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
