Survey of patient and public perceptions of electronic health records for healthcare, policy and research: Study protocol

Luchenski S et al, BMC medical informatics and decision making, 12(1)

Immediate access to patients’ complete health records via electronic databases could improve healthcare and facilitate health research. However, the possible benefits of a national electronic health records (EHR) system must be balanced against public concerns about data security and personal privacy. Successful development of EHR requires better understanding of the views of the public and those most affected by EHR: users of the National Health Service. This study aims to explore the correlation between personal healthcare experience (including number of healthcare contacts and number and type of longer term conditions) and views relating to development of EHR for healthcare, health services planning and policy and health research.

Factors associated with difficult electronic health record implementation in office practice

Fleurant M et al, J Am Med Inform Assoc, 2012

Little is known about physicians’ perception of the ease or difficulty of implementing electronic health records (EHR). This study identified factors related to the perceived difficulty of implementing EHR. 163 physicians completed surveys before and after the implementation of EHR in an externally funded pilot program in three Massachusetts communities. Ordinal hierarchical logistic regression was used to identify baseline factors that correlated with physicians’ report of difficulty with EHR implementation.

Perception, satisfaction and utilization of the VALUE home telehealth service

Finkelstein SM et al, Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, 17(6)

We conducted a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the perception, satisfaction and utilization of a home telehealth service for frail elderly people living independently in their home communities. Control group subjects continued with their usual care and intervention group subjects were able to supplement their usual care with the use of a web portal. The web portal allowed videoconferencing and electronic messaging between home care nurses and clients, ordering health-related and home care services, access to health-related information and general access to the Internet. A total of 99 eligible people (59 female, 40 male) from one urban and one rural study site agreed to participate in the study. Eighty-four subjects were active participants for nine months.

Incorporation of Information Technology (IT) advancements in healthcare has been growing in the recent past. There is convincing evidence that developing countries can also benefit from telemedicine and other IT applications in healthcare. The Malaysian government, in mid-1996, launched the multimedia supercorridor (MSC) project. As a new medical technology in the country, it takes a huge effort to make professionals understand this new concept.

Londei, Sophie Turgeon et al, J Telemed Telecare, 15(8)

We explored the perception and receptivity of elderly people regarding the introduction of an intelligent videomonitoring system (IVS) at home. Using a mixed methods design, 25 elderly people with a history of falls completed a structured interview (two questionnaires). In the year preceding the interview, 72% of the participants fell as many as seven times. Open-ended questions (qualitative data) were used to supplement the quantitative data. A content analysis (qualitative data) and a descriptive analysis (quantitative data) were carried out.
