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.

Civil and industrial buildings and structures have lately become more frequently exposed to dynamic impacts caused by emergencies. Such loads are random in nature and are characterized by high intensity and short duration of action. In this regard, protection of structures from these impacts comprises an important scientific and practical problem. One of the ways of possible improvement of structural resistance to dynamic loads of great intensity is the use of yielding supports. This article presents the results of research of reinforced concrete slabs placed on yielding supports. Yielding supports are presented in the form of deformable elements of ring cross-section, which are characterized by three phases of deformation: elastic, elastoplastic, and elastoplastic with hardening. The present research considers behavior of the slab in elastic phase, while behavior of supports is analyzed in elastoplastic and elastoplastic with hardening phases. Conducted studies allowed evaluating the influence of rigidity of yielding supports in the plastic stage of deformation. Research results also allowed explaining the influence of the nature of distribution of rigidities along the perimeter of the slab and the level of deformations of yielding supports at the moment of transition to the stage of plastic deformations on behavior of concrete slabs. According to the results of performed calculations, physical and mechanical parameters of supports have been revealed enabling to get the maximum effect to reduce the stress-strain state parameters of structures. © 2017 Author(s).

Background: The efficiency and acceptance of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) can increase if they reuse medical data captured during health care delivery. High heterogeneity of the existing legacy data formats has become the main barrier for the reuse of data. Thus, we need to apply data modeling mechanisms that provide standardization, transformation, accumulation and querying medical data to allow its reuse. Objectives: In this paper, we focus on the interoperability issues of the hospital information systems (HIS) and CDSS data integration. Materials and Methods: Our study is based on the approach proposed by Marcos et al. where archetypes are used as a standardized mechanism for the interaction of a CDSS with an electronic health record (EHR). We build an integration tool to enable CDSSs collect data from various institutions without a need for modifications in the implementation. The approach implies development of a conceptual level as a set of archetypes representing concepts required by a CDSS. Results: Treatment case data from Regional Clinical Hospital in Tomsk, Russia was extracted, transformed and loaded to the archetype database of a clinical decision support system. Test records’ normalization has been performed by defining transformation and aggregation rules between the EHR data and the archetypes. These mapping rules were used to automatically generate openEHR compliant data. After the transformation, archetype data instances were loaded into the CDSS archetype based data storage. The performance times showed acceptable performance for the extraction stage with a mean of 17.428 s per year (3436 case records). The transformation times were also acceptable with 136.954 s per year (0.039 s per one instance). The accuracy evaluation showed the correctness and applicability of the method for the wide range of HISes. These operations were performed without interrupting the HIS workflow to prevent the HISes from disturbing the service provision to the users. Conclusions: The project results have proven that archetype based technologies are mature enough to be applied in routine operations that require extraction, transformation, loading and querying medical data from heterogeneous EHR systems. Inference models in clinical research and CDSS can benefit from this by defining queries to a valid data set with known structure and constraints. The standard based nature of the archetype approach allows an easy integration of CDSSs with existing EHR systems. © Schattauer 2017.

In the current study, we tried to identify practices that help overcoming data entering and operational barriers, and involve patients and doctors in the development process to improve the acceptance of Web portals for chronic patients. This paper presents a follow up project implementing a Web portal for chronic patients considering previously studied barriers and opportunities. The following methods were applied to facilitate the acceptance of the portal: 1) a joint use case definition and discussion session before starting the development; 2) involvement of the users in prototyping the portal; 3) training of doctors and patients together before the implementation. During the first week of the portal's operation we have measured the number of data transactions and the number of active users to compare it with previous experience. The first weeks of operating the portal, we could observe an active contribution of doctors and patients, who submitted vital signs data and recommendations to the portal. © 2017 The authors and IOS Press.

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.

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.

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.
