Finding The Narrative In Incident Reports, La'eeqa Aslam

Master's Projects and Capstones

The Progress Foundation, as licensed by the state of California and the Community Care Licensing, is required to use incident reports for internal audits and remain in compliance as a health facility. Incident reports are used to record events or accidents that have occurred within an organization. Often times, reports are made, handed off, and given from the residence home to the Community Care Licensing with little to no information of how an incident was managed. The Progress Foundation is working towards tracking information from the incident reports to improve internal management and understand the trends in the reports.

Phr: Patient Health Record, Quinn Nelson 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Phr: Patient Health Record, Quinn Nelson

Theses/Capstones/Creative Projects

The rapid development of information technology systems has expanded into multiple disciplines and results in systems that are limited by initial design and implementation: the Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) space is no different. The introduction of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system has changed the way healthcare operates. Initial designs of these systems were focused on serving the needs of insurance companies and healthcare billing departments. Research shows that the design of EHR systems negatively impact provider-patient interactions and the care they receive. This capstone project capitalizes on the collaboration efforts between UNO and UNMC – by joining a research group ...

Healthier Dishes to Serve This Thanksgiving

This year, why not make Thanksgiving not only delicious but also a health-boosting experience that’s truer to the origins of the holiday? For most of us, our traditional Thanksgiving meal has shifted away from the natural foods enjoyed by the 17th-century celebrants. But it’s not that difficult to get back to preparing delicious food that is fresh from the harvest…and packed with nutrition.


Learning For Clinical Named Entity Recognition Without Manual Annotations, Omid Ghiasvand, Rohit J. Kate 2018 University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Learning For Clinical Named Entity Recognition Without Manual Annotations, Omid Ghiasvand, Rohit J. Kate

Health Informatics & Administration Faculty Articles

Background: Named entity recognition (NER) systems are commonly built using supervised methods that use machine learning to learn from corpora manually annotated with named entities. However, manually annotating corpora is very expensive and laborious.

Materials and methods: In this paper, a novel method is presented for training clinical NER systems that does not require any manual annotations. It only requires a raw text corpus and a resource like UMLS that can give a list of named entities along with their semantic types. Using these two resources, annotations are automatically obtained to train machine learning methods. The method was evaluated on ...

Critical Success Factors For Adopting Telemedicine Applications, Arjen Maris, Anas Yousfi, Stefan V. Ramshorst, Pascal Ravesteyn

Communications of the IIMA

The use of IT within healthcare is increasing, but at a slow rate. In complex projects like the implementation of a telemedicine application within the context of physiotherapy processes where both practitioners and patients use the application, it is still unclear what factors should be taken into consideration for a successful adoption. Therefore, the research question for this study is: ‘what are the critical success factors for adopting a telemedicine application for primary physiotherapists and their patients within the Netherlands?’ A literature study is performed followed by a thematic analysis to determine the factors that are relevant for adoption of ...

The Chapman Bone Algorithm: A Diagnostic Alternative For The Evaluation Of Osteoporosis, Elise Levesque, Anton Ketterer, Wajiha Memon, Cameron James, Noah Barrett, Cyril Rakovski, Frank Frisch

Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research

Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease and goes largely undiagnosed throughout the world, due to the inaccessibility of DXA machines. Multivariate analyses of serum bone turnover markers were evaluated in 226 Orange County, California, residents with the intent to determine if serum osteocalcin and serum pyridinoline cross-links could be used to detect the onset of osteoporosis as effectively as a DXA scan. Descriptive analyses of the demographic and lab characteristics of the participants were performed through frequency, means and standard deviation estimations. We implemented logistic regression modeling to find the best classification algorithm for osteoporosis. All calculations and ...

UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science Supported Publications

Valid, reliable, and direct measures of physical activity (PA) are critical to assessing the impact of lifestyle PA interventions. However, little is known about the extent to which objective measures have been used to assess the outcomes of lifestyle PA interventions. This systematic review had two aims: 1) evaluate the extent to which PA is measured objectively in lifestyle PA interventions targeting adults and 2) explore and summarize what objective measures have been used and what PA dimensions and metrics have been reported. Pubmed, Cochrane Central Register, and PsychInfo were searched for lifestyle PA interventions conducted between 2006 and 2016 ...

Pulmonary Aspergillosis: A Review On Diagnosis And Management, Bilal A. Jalil, Juan M. Galvis, Karim A. El Kersh, Mohamed Saad, Mostafa M. Fraig, Juan J. Guardiola Ii

The University of Louisville Journal of Respiratory Infections

Aspergillosis is acquired by inhalation of spores of Aspergillus, a ubiquitous species in the environment. In normal hosts, spore inhalation rarely causes lung disease.

Pulmonary aspergillosis covers a wide spectrum of clinical syndromes depending on the interaction between Aspergillus and the host (immune-status, prior bronchopulmonary disease). It runs the gamut from invasive aspergillosis to Aspergillus bronchitis and colonization.

Invasive aspergillosis occurs in severely immunocompromised patients, typically with neutropenia. Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis affects patients with chronic structural lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, mycobacterial lung disease, but without significant immunocompromise. Aspergillus bronchitis affects patients with bronchial disease such as ...

Pulmonary Histoplasmosis In A Patient With Cough, Dyspnea, Pulmonary Nodule And Rheumatologic Manifestations: Case Report And Review, Johnson Britto

The University of Louisville Journal of Respiratory Infections

In this case report we describe a case of pulmonary histoplasmosis in a healthy adult female living in Kentucky. The patient presented with two months history of poly-arthralgia and myalgia, intermittent dry cough, chest tightness, exertional dyspnea, malaise, fatigue and one week history of skin rash. She did not respond to broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy and she also had extensive endocrine and rheumatologic work up that was negative. A diagnosis of histoplasmosis was established based on radiological findings as well as endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration cytology (EBUS-TBNA) of mediastinal lymph nodes demonstrating necrotizing granuloma with fungal stains positive for Histoplasma ...


Ipad Use To Enhance Conversations Between Persons With Dementia And Their Family Caregivers, Kelsey Dynes 2018 The University of Western Ontario

Ipad Use To Enhance Conversations Between Persons With Dementia And Their Family Caregivers, Kelsey Dynes

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Electronic conversational memory notebooks, a more current application of previous hardcopy versions, consist of personally relevant photographs and accompanying sentences. The notebooks help persons with dementia access memories during conversations. Person-centred communication (PCC) recognizes the individual, accommodating for personal beliefs and intentions. The purpose of the current study was to determine whether persons with dementia and their family caregivers could be educated and trained to use PCC while using an iPad-based electronic conversational memory notebook. Seven persons with mild to moderate dementia and their family caregiver completed the six-week study. Participants were educated and trained to use PCC while conversing ...

Background: Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death in the United States, and there is a growing shortage of physician specialists necessary to address this issue. Telecardiology is a form of telemedicine that allows cardiologists to treat patients from remote locations, and this form of patient care has the potential to improve both patient and economic outcomes, as well as reduce the length of patient hospitalization. The PHI-TCS was established at Parkview Huntington Hospital in September 2016 and has since been extended to additional Parkview community hospitals.

Objective: Our objectives in this study were to evaluate the usage patterns ...


The Impact Of Mychart (Ephr) Use On The Clinical Outcomes Of Behavior-Related Modifiable Health Conditions, Sam George 2018 Parkview Health

The Impact Of Mychart (Ephr) Use On The Clinical Outcomes Of Behavior-Related Modifiable Health Conditions, Sam George

MAHE Student Research

Background: Obesity, hypertension, type II diabetes mellitus (DM), and hyperlipidemia represent highly prevalent chronic diseases among adult Americans. Each of these diseases are associated with several comorbidities, increased risk of mortality, and collectively place a substantial burden on healthcare resources. Prior scientific studies have linked patient activation with positive lifestyle modifications. Furthermore, patients who are highly engaged in their own care have better outcomes than those who are less involved. Patient portal messaging and ePHR use have theoretical benefits, namely, encouraging patient activation, but current evidence varies on ePHR use and improved clinical outcomes. Objective: This study investigates whether MyChart ...

Health Information Technology And Language Barriers In Pre-Admission Clinics, Sandra M. Coffey

Applied Research Projects

LEP or Limited English Proficiency patients across the United States are at higher risk for decreased quality of care because of their inability to communicate effectively with healthcare providers. Interpreters are not offered in a consistent manner due to many variables such as cost, availability of qualified interpreters, the time spent with patients due to an increased work-overload and clinician lack of knowledge into technologies available to use. Healthcare information technology such as video and telephone interpretation can bridge the gap between patients and medical personnel when a language barrier is present. At the pre-admission clinic, the Nursing personnel interviews ...
