The use of Web portals has several benefits. They have been proven to enhance communication between patients and health care professionals, allow patients to play a more active role in their own treatment and self-management, increase self-efficiency. Doctors can access patients‘ medical data and give recommendations to the patients. Some evidence of positive outcomes has been reported including improved clinical indicators and reduced health service use, as well as enhanced feelings of security and increased satisfaction with health and social care services. However, a number of studies have demonstrated that these types of solutions often fail to be successfully implemented and adopted within routine healthcare. The goal of the study was to analyze attitude of tuberculosis patients and doctors and identify perceived opportunities and barriers to operate a Web portal. The perceptions of 30 tuberculosis patients and 18 doctors (10 general practitioners and 8 phthisiatricians) from Tomsk, Russia were collected through semi-structured interviews. The responses were analyzed using grounded theory and thematic analysis, in order to understand the participants’ opinions and attitudes towards accepting tuberculosis web-portal in the treatment and rehabilitation process. We have recognized core topics that represented the participants’ responses. These core topics indicated that most respondents mentioned “the potential of tuberculosis web-portal to establish a better communication between doctors and patients” and “the increased health status of the patients” as the most valuable outcomes of adopting the tool. Both doctors and patients also expressed their opinions on the usability of the solutions, with no significant concerns reported about its usability. The main barrier we identified was different expectations of doctors and patients: doctors expected that the portal would decrease the amount of paper work and will help them to quickly react in acute cases, however, the patients were disappointed that the portal did not allow them to be able to reach doctors on the 24/7 basis and have a consultation whenever they felt they needed it. Finally, our findings disclosed that participants appreciated the perceived clinical utility of the portal, which could further have an influence on their intention to use it. The findings from our reported study in the area of tuberculosis treatment and rehabilitation suggested that the participants generally accepted the introduction of web-portal for the purpose of reporting health status and getting recommendation from the doctors as an alternative to the traditional doctor visits. © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

This paper presents the results of investigations into the optical properties of LiF crystals doped with oxides of different metals (Li, W, Ti, Fe). It has been proved that, during the growth of crystals, nanodefects containing polyvalent dopant ions and oxygen in different states (O2-, OH-, O2 -) are formed in the crystalline matrix. It has been shown that these nanodefects are sinks of electronic excitations and determine the direction and efficiency of radiation-induced processes. © 2013 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The formation features and rock strength properties in Kuzbas coal-bearing basin have been described. The influence of granulometric, mineralogical and chemical composition on rock strength has been determined. The change of rock strength property has been identified at different stages of lithogenetic alterations. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.

To enable the efficient reuse of standard based medical data we propose to develop a higher level information model that will complement the archetype model of ISO 13606. This model will make use of the relationships that are specified in UML to connect medical archetypes into a knowledge base within a repository. UML connectors were analyzed for their ability to be applied in the implementation of a higher level model that will establish relationships between archetypes. An information model was developed using XML Schema notation. The model allows linking different archetypes of one repository into a knowledge base. Presently it supports several relationships and will be advanced in future. © 2014 European Federation for Medical Informatics and IOS Press.

Structural optimization problems are normally formulated and solved in terms of mathematical programming. Unknown parameters of structure must satisfy the constraints of the problem and provide extreme value of objective function (for instance minimum weight or maximum load-bearing capacity of considering structure). It is known that in some cases the optimal systems have special properties. Knowledge of these properties allows investigator to develop methods for solving optimization problems and methods for creating systems with prescribed properties. © 2015 The Authors.

The chosen evaluation concept is based the Guideline for Good Evaluation Practice in Health Informatics (GEP-HI). The stages of the study were identified. Each stage got a detailed description. We also identified the participants and their required qualifications and responsibilities. The developed evaluation concept was used for the evaluation study of the developed medical data visualization method. The study was performed in Tomsk, Russia. This helped to involve more doctors and patients to the study. This also facilitated the involvement of patients, because they have already the experience of using patients' portal. © 2014 The authors and IOS Press. All rights reserved.

Background: Manual mapping of laboratory data to Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) requires a major effort. Application of the LOINC mapping assistant RELMA V.6.6 can reduce the effort required for mapping. The goal of the paper is to perform a semi-automated mapping of Russian laboratory terms to LOINC. Methods: A semi-automated mapping of the 2563 terms from two clinics in Russia was performed. The first step was automatic mapping using RELMA V.6.6 and LOINC V.2.48 Russian translation by Yaroslavl state medical academy. The second step was a manual expert mapping. To evaluate the correctness of mapping all the mapped terms were reviewed by two experts. Results: The paper presents the results of semi-automatic mapping of Russian laboratory terms to LOINC. Two clinics (A and B) and a laboratory service participated in the project. The following results were achieved: mapping of 86% terms from Clinic A and 87% from Clinic B. It has to be mentioned that 99% of terms used in 2014 were mapped. In total 2398 out of 2563 were mapped. Discussion: The required effort was reasonable and the price of mapping and maintenance was considered as relatively low in comparison to manual methods. Conclusion: RELMA V.6.6 and LOINC V.2.48 offer the opportunity of a low effort LOINC mapping even for non-English languages. The study proved that the mapping effort is acceptable and mapping results are on the same level as the manual mapping. © Schattauer 2016.

This paper presents the results of the numerical studies of the non-spherical particles separation in the hydrocyclones. The calculations are done for freely rotating particles, and particles with orientations fixed by means of an external torque exerted by a strong orienting field. The results demonstrate that separation characteristics of the hydrocyclone are strongly depends on the flow shear rate, particle size, and particle shape. The model is validated by the good agreement between the measured and predicted results. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.

The results of studies of emission properties of oxygen-containing ZnWO4 crystals are presented. Oxygen is incorporated into single crystals in two ways: annealing of crystals at 900 C in an oxygen atmosphere and implantation of high energy (28 MeV) oxygen ions. The observed variation of the photoluminescence intensity and excitation spectrum of emission at 2.6 eV are interpreted as the occurrence of a concentration gradient of emission centers in the crystal bulk under hearting of crystals and the dependence of the photons mean penetration depth in a crystal on their energy. In order to gain better insight into the nature of the phenomenon, time-resolved luminescence measurements were carried out.

The paper presents the results of semiautomatic mapping of Russian laboratory terms to LOINC. Two clinics (A and B) and a laboratory service participated in the project. We were able to map 86% (Clinic A) and 87% (Clinic B) of laboratory terms. The required effort was reasonable and the price of mapping and maintenance was considered as relatively low. We established LOINC as a canonical coding method for a laboratory data exchange. This provided semantic interoperability for the data exchange process. © 2015 European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI).
