Objective: To survey and analyze the salary satisfaction, advices, and suggestions among physicians in public hospitals in Shanghai and provide reference for designing relevant policies via sampling survey. Methods: Site survey was performed among physicians in four public hospitals in Shanghai. SPSS 18.0 was used to conduct statistical description and logistic regression analysis. Results: The average salary satisfaction score of the respondents was 2.75±0.78. Logistic regression analysis showed that hospital type, sex, age, department, and title were main factors affecting the salary satisfaction in physicians. Most physicians deemed that guarantee and improvement of welfare, salary distribution considering department, post, and position differences and according to contribution and fairness, increase in the salary level and reflection of work value were helpful for improving the salary satisfaction. Conclusion: At present, physicians in public hospitals in Shanghai have low salary satisfaction. The salary level is not the only aspect of salary satisfaction as physicians pay more attention to aspects such as welfare. Therefore it is necessary to maintain the current salary level, establish scientific and reasonable salary increase mechanism and salary structure, increase welfare, explore more advanced salary distribution mechanism, and ensure the progressiveness and scientificity of the salary system. © 2016, Editorial Department of Journal of Shanghai Second Medical University.

While the cloud computing benefits healthcare IT modernization, it introduces new challenges for data integration, which is crucial for information sharing, data mining and business intelligence applications. Data virtualization brings a new strategy and related technologies to cope with these challenges, particularly suitable for cloud data services and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) applications. The paper discussed a unique architecture and related technologies to implement the data virtualization for cloud data. The paper also demonstrated how this technology can be used in the real-world applications, and a city-wide healthcare appointment system has been implemented for example. © 2015 SERSC.

Biopreservation and Biobanking | Year: 2015
Biobanks are important resources and central tools for translational medicine, which brings scientific research outcomes to clinical practice. The key purpose of biobanking in translational medicine and other medical research is to provide biological samples that are integrated with clinical information. In 2008, the Shanghai Municipal Government launched the "Shanghai Tissue Bank" in an effort to promote research in translational medicine. Now a sharing service platform has been constructed to integrate clinical practice and biological information that can be used in diverse medical and pharmaceutical research studies. The platform collects two kinds of data: sample data and clinical data. The sample data are obtained from the hospital biobank management system, and mainly include the donors' age, gender, marital status, sample source, sample type, collection time, deposit time, and storage method. The clinical data are collected from the "Hospital-Link" system (a medical information sharing system that connects 23 tertiary hospitals in Shanghai). The main contents include donors' corresponding medication information, test reports, inspection reports, and hospital information. As of the end of September 2014, the project has a collection of 16,020 donors and 148,282 samples, which were obtained from 12 medical institutions, and automatically acquired donors' corresponding clinical data from the "Hospital-Link" system for 6830 occurrences. This project will contribute to scientific research at medical institutions in Shanghai, and will also support the development of the biopharmaceutical industry. In this article, we will describe the significance, the construction phases, the application prospects, and benefits of the sample repository and information sharing service platform. © 2015, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
