Clinical data repositories are databases intended to facilitate arbitrary querying of the data and analyses for reporting and research. Examples of frequently used models include the Information System Success Model (ISSM) of DeLone and McLean (DeLone and McLean, 2003; Petter and McLean, 2009) the Davis Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) with its extensions (TAM2, UTAUT) (Davis, 1989; Lee et al., 2003; Venkatesh et al., 2003), and the Bhattacherjee Expectation Confirmation Model (ECM) of information system continuance (Bhattacherjee, 2001). drug/drug, drug/lab conflicts). Even within a table, there are many columns that are used for internal housekeeping by the transactional system, about which researchers could care less. Because a CDR is intended to support multiple uses, we do not categorize the database within any single application as a CDR. My own group had to revise our extract because of a study where a researcher wanted inpatient bed information—which we had not extracted earlier—in order to randomize patients by bed to a standard intervention versus a novel intervention. I discuss each category later. Rudimentary conflict checking is provided by the clinical decision support/rule engine (CDS). Such metadata can be represented by biomedical standards or ontologies that are already available for clinical practice. Another researcher needed the billed charge (in dollars) of individual procedures, which we had previously ignored when we were extracting billed-procedure data. Applications run inside of the computer’s operating system software. CPOE systems have also demonstrated improvements in the overall appropriateness of laboratory orders and utilization (Nightingale et al., 1994). An important advantage of a knowledge resource-centric knowledge integration architecture is that a given knowledge resource completely specifies the information necessary for providing CDS in particular clinical contexts. Using data collected within the Chicago Antimicrobial Resistance Project computerized clinical data repository (9) from September 1, 2001, to August 31, 2004, we developed an electronic rule to define persons with CA infection with S. Open data platforms still need improvement in order to become a useful source of knowledge (Martin et al., 2016). From: Clinical Decision Support (Second Edition), 2014, Prakash Nadkarni, in Clinical Research Computing, 2016. Clinical Data Repository (CDR) is a real time database that houses data from a variety of clinical sources such as ‘UVa clinical data repository’ (see “Relevant Websites section”), containing clinical information on over 1 million patients and 5 million clinical encounters, the clinical data repository ALLOY from Liaison (see “Relevant Websites section”) and Inovalon’s clinical data repository (see “Relevant Websites section”). Second level of CDSS related to evidence-based medicine protocols. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Thoroughly explain the clinical data repository. 61, 185–193). To address data security issues trends regarding a general consent, dynamic consent or data donation can be perceived (Bietz et al., 2019). My own group had to revise our extract because of a study where a researcher wanted inpatient bed information—which we had not extracted earlier—in order to randomize patients by bed to a standard intervention versus a novel intervention. Significance of the Study: This review article focuses on the efficacy of oral care and oral management for reducing the incidence of pneumonia in elderly persons. Data donation is often limited to a specific health institution, thus, the donated data cannot be shared with other institutions (which is in conflict with our initial open data definition). You can then create standard data extraction templates for various purposes (eg, extracting medication-related information for a cohort of patients, getting associated diagnoses, etc.) Data continuity between internal and ambulatory care is guaranteed. As I’ve mentioned in the previous chapter, EHRs typically include a relational data store—a database whose contents are a functional clone of the transactional production system, which is typically regenerated every night and used for reporting and querying in order not to impair performance of the transactional system. For example, as part of Meaningful Use—a $27 billion incentive program for practices and hospitals to adopt EHRs—clinicians are expected to give patients a clinical summary after office visits that includes basic clinical information such as care provided, old and new medications, upcoming appointments, and patient instructions. And the network segments that connect the clinician’s workstation to the repository must be functioning. Then, the EHR system decides how to make use of any interactions, for example to provide a warning to the end-user to either cancel or override the identified interaction. The global HIMMS Analytics EMR adoption model of October 2015 that combines the United States and European adoption model is described as follows (EMRAM, 2015): Stage 0: All three ancillary clinical systems are not installed (i.e., laboratory, radiology, pharmacy) not installed, Stage 1: All three ancillary clinical systems installed. Availability of most functions in one inpatient unit does not guarantee extension to the overall hospital which implies that domain-specific issues should be solved. More robust systems can allow for the tasking of care team members and documenting completed steps. analyzed the ordering habits of clinical staff at Vanderbilt University Hospital and used these findings to make two modifications to their CPOE system (Neilson et al., 2004). Clinical significance can be graphically represented by superimposing normative group information on a graph showing pretreatment and posttreatment means. They are secondary databases, that is, they receive data that has been originally input into other sources. AN OVERVIEW OF CLINICAL DATA REPOSITORY (CDR) A presentation by Netrah L 2. You can then create standard data extraction templates for various purposes (eg, extracting medication-related information for a cohort of patients, getting associated diagnoses, etc.) The patient must be accurately identified and the blood sample must be linked to her. In a CIS MU phase, satisfaction might depend on the personal characteristics of end-users, the quality of the system, and its flexibility to adapt to the changes required by well-trained end-users (Hadji and Degoulet, 2016). Allowing reuse of open data requires the development of standards and best practices to guide the way data are presented and organized. providing a patient-oriented reminder message for an overdue LDL cholesterol test in a personal health record). These included introducing a daily prompt in the system that asked providers whether they wanted to discontinue tests scheduled beyond 72 h and, second, unbundling panel tests into single components (e.g., sodium, potassium) so that they could be ordered separately. Smile CDR is a complete, purpose-built clinical data repository designed around the HL7 FHIR standard that is used for storing health records. It includes comprehensive data pertaining to drug effects, electronic health records (EHRs), drug-drug interactions data, patients’ medical histories and demographic data, pathology, diagnostic data and data of concomitant medications. By creating a reduced set of the fields that you really need, the essential aspects of the system are more easily learned by your team and the chance of errors is reduced so that you serve your customers more efficiently. Critical examples include urgency departments, intensive care units, or oncology departments where complex protocols and clinical rules need to be tested and implemented. Information sytem end-user satisfaction and continuance intention: a unified modeling approach. The HIMSS organization considers seven stages of EMRAM, the term EMR being considered to the broad sense used in this chapter as a CIS (HIMSS Analytics, 2015). EMA Clinical Data (see “Relevant Websites section”) web portal hosts clinical data published under the European Medicines Agency. Stage 6: Full physician documentation with structured templates and discrete data for at least on inpatient service in the hospital. Identify which components of nursing documentation should be retained in the clinical data repository. In some organizations, what the clinician sees on her workstation is not an application running on the workstation in front of her, but rather a screen painted by another computer that makes it appear as though she is running the clinical computing system on her workstation. When providing public access to health data, several risks, challenges and concerns arise. A data repository is also known as a data library or data archive. Often, the formats for collecting and storing electronic health records (EHR) differ across institutions. Third level of CDS with variance and compliance alerts. Figure 6.3. You can add value by incorporating tables from other sources, such as medication hierarchies from drug knowledge bases (or even from subsets of the National Library of Medicine’s Unified Medical Language System).

Data quality might depend on the provider of the data. The HIMSS organization considers seven stages of EMRAM, the term EMR being considered to the broad sense used in this chapter as a CIS (HIMSS Analytics, 2015). These included introducing a daily prompt in the system that asked providers whether they wanted to discontinue tests scheduled beyond 72 h and, second, unbundling panel tests into single components (e.g., sodium, potassium) so that they could be ordered separately. This can allow practices to proactively identify and reach out to patients in need of care as well as track population health, adjusted for illness severity, and nationally and regionally benchmarked. Alex H. Krist MD, MPH, ... Marc McKenzie BS, MBA, in Oncology Informatics, 2016. Most CPOE systems provide search functionality, which can return a narrowed-down list of corresponding tests from a specific search term. EHRs can also have embedded patient educational material both linked to and tailored by the patient’s clinical information. The PACS is available outside radiology. Dean F. Sittig PhD, in Clinical Informatics Literacy, 2017. Most CPOE systems provide search functionality, which can return a narrowed-down list of corresponding tests from a specific search term. Rudimentary conflict checking is provided by the clinical decision support/rule engine (CDS). Once changes are submitted, the configuration will be saved for future use. An overview of clinical data repository 1. Sarah P. Slight, David W. Bates, in Key Advances in Clinical Informatics, 2017. Data donation is often limited to a specific health institution, thus, the donated data cannot be shared with other institutions (which is in conflict with our initial open data definition). They include concerns on data quality, data security, data misuse and reidentification. This requires additional steps to integrate the data and translate from natural language to the standardized formats required by clinical data repositories (Murkett, 2019). It should be considered as a succession of steps or phases, phase n+1 being started when phase n is completed. This ensures that data are not only accessible, but are also readable, comprehensible and usable by various users and systems (Noveck and Groff, 2013). Clinicians are primarily responsible for test ordering, the first key step of the laboratory testing process. Results review, electronic documentation, CPOE, and other functions rely on the repository for patient data. Often, the formats for collecting and storing electronic health records (EHR) differ across institutions. Applications designed for desktop or laptop computers are referred to as desktop applications. When an alarm occurs, each of the possible causes—from power outage to network hardware on that ward to a system-wide outage of core systems—must be rapidly investigated and rectified. For example, the initiative “Understanding Patient Data” (https://understandingpatientdata.org.uk) promotes improvements in informing patients on the uses of their health information. The CDR contains a controlled medical vocabulary. CPOE systems therefore need to interface with other EHR systems, such as the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and clinical data repository. Applications built specifically for mobile computing platforms are often called apps. This ensures that data are not only accessible, but are also readable, comprehensible and usable by various users and systems (Noveck and Groff, 2013). Stage 7: Paperless hospital. For a clinician to view a simple piece of information on her patient, such as the most recent hematocrit, many steps must work without fail. I discuss each category later. Since the information is digital, it can be shared with other health care organizations, clinicians, and patients. Third level of CDS with variance and compliance alerts. vital signs, flow sheets, nursing notes,) is integrated with the CDR for at least on inpatient service in the hospital. It should be considered as a succession of steps or phases, phase n+1 being started when phase n is completed. At the same time, there are disadvantages to this approach. Figure 6.4. “Data visualization is a general term that describes any effort to help people understand the significance of data by placing it in a visual context. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Moreover, if the infrastructure for supporting the execution of these types of resources has been developed, a new CDS capability can be added without much difficulty. Medical professionals are dedicated to providing their patients with the best care possible. As your knowledge of the EHR evolves—and believe me, no one tries to remember the full details of 12,000+ tables—you may find that you may need to pull additional fields, or additional tables, that you had ignored earlier, because some researcher comes to you with a special request and your current set of tables/fields lacks the necessary information. And, by creating organizational standards that adhere to industry standards, data will be reliable and consistent. This study showed how it was possible to curtail overutilization of inpatient laboratory tests with a simple modification to the ordering screen of a CPOE system. This means that patients are asked to sign a general consent during their stay in the hospital.
