Electronic health records: Improvement to healthcare decision-making
Osop, Hamzah & Sahama, Tony (2016) Electronic health records: Improvement to healthcare decision-making. In 18th International Conference on E-health Networking, Application & Services, 14 ~ 17 September 2016, Munich, Germany.
Effective decision-making plays an important role in promoting optimal care delivery. Factors such as availability of data, timely access to data and organised information greatly influences the quality of decision-making as illustrated in a causal loop diagram. The contribution of practice-based evidence thus aims at structuring an approach where healthcare professionals can be consistently assisted in making effective decisions during routine primary care. Through a practice-based evidence ehealth scenario and a data-flow diagram of clinical systems in a public hospital from Singapore, we have identified the importance of leveraging electronic health records as ideal resources in the pursuit of improving healthcare decision-making.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
