Interface Considerations

Title: Interface Considerations in a Web-Based Pediatric Electronic Medical Records System
Author: Mark Ginsburg
Date Visited: 07/05/09
Summary:
In making an electronic medical records system, the interface of the software must also be taken into consideration. It must be easy for doctors or hospital staff to input or output pertinent information. The software should also be easily maintained. PedOne is a web-based system designed for hospital staff of a private practice. Implemented using MySQL, Perl, JavaScript, HTML and CSS, PedOne boasts not only of its good interface but also of its fast execution. It can work on any web browser, but developers prefer it to be opened on a Mozilla Firefox browser. It has a clean layout with error-checking abilities to ensure the correctness of information. Patient search can be done with a click, and results are immediately generated. The interface of PedOne makes it easy for doctors and nurses to record a patient’s documentation.

Title: Device Data Protection in Mobile Healthcare Applications
Author: Dasun Weerasinghe, Muttukrishnan Rajarajan, Veselin Rakocevic
Date Visited: 07/04/09
Summary:
As the internet becomes more accessible, particularly in mobile devices, a lot of applications are starting to emerge from various fields. One of these fields is the healthcare, which has even coined a new term, “m-health”. Most of these applications are of one type – electronic medical record (EMR). However, mobile-based EMRs pose security issues. There are issues of security of electronic data transactions, mobile user authentication and secure data storage. This article showed a possible solution through the use of an on-the-phone security agent, also known as a security capsule. With a single sign-on, the security of the device and the data is certain. The security capsule protects data through encryption. To view the medical data, the capsule decrypts the information and makes it accessible on a read-only basis. This means that the decrypted data cannot be stored or transferred.

Scouring the Net

It’s always comforting to know that you are not alone (rest in peace MJ). This is precisely how it feels when we go looking for publications or posts related to our research. Although relatively new, there is still a decent number of resources that are readily available with the just the click of a mouse! (There’s a video after the jump!) Read the rest of this entry »

And so came the time that we have to start thinking of our first game.

We chose factoring of polynomials as the lesson.  I cannot remember fully well how we came about with choosing this lesson. XD Read the rest of this entry »

First Things First /*from Angelica Gomez*/

Our first assignment was to gather information regarding our subject matter.  Dr. Caro taught us the format when citing our electronic references.  This assignment proved to be so exhausting since I really dug in the vast amounts of Google searches I made.  I also thought that I must be careful with the credibility of each site that I visited.
