Caveats for the Use of the Active Problem List as Ground Truth for Decision Support.
Authors: Ceusters W, Blaisure J Abstract Diagnoses recorded on the problem list are increasingly being used for decision support applications. To obtain insight in the adequacy of the clinical user interface to capture what the clinician has in mind, and to reconstruct the clinical reality of the patient, we analyzed in the database of an EHR system the transactions that resulted from managing the problem list. Our findings indicate (1) that caution is required when using the evolution of the problem list for determining comorbidity or ongoing disease, and (2) that similarities or differences in problem list annota...

Enhancing Nationwide Medico-Administrative Databases Analysis with SAF4SUHAD: A Statistical Analysis Framework for Secondary Use of Healthcare Administrative Databases.
The objective of this work is to build SAF4SUHAD, a statistical analysis framework for secondary use of healthcare administrative databases, using literature-based specifications. A literature review was performed on PubMed in four different medical domains: caesarian deliveries, cholecystectomies, hip replacement surgeries and bariatric surgeries. We identified 22 papers relating analyses of large databases. They reported epidemiological indicators (e.g. mean age), that were abstracted to features (e.g. univariate description of a quantitative variable), and then were implemented through 32 functions available for the use...

Utilising Information of the Case Fee Catalogue to Enhance 30-Day Readmission Prediction in the German DRG System.
Authors: Eggerth A, Hayn D, Veeranki S, Stieg J, Schreier G Abstract Unplanned hospital readmissions are a burden to the healthcare system and to the patients. To lower the readmission rates, machine learning approaches can be used to create predictive models, with the intention to provide actionable information for caregivers. According to the German Diagnosis Related Groups (G-DRG) system, for every stay in a German hospital, data are collected for the subsequent reimbursement calculations. After statistical evaluation, these data are summarised in the yearly updated Case Fee Catalogue, which not only contains th...

Comparison of Changes in the Number of Included Patients Between Interventional Trials and Observational Studies Published from 1995 to 2014 in Three Leading Journals.
DISCUSSION: The routine storage of an increasing amount of data (from data warehouses or claims data) has had an impact in recent years on the number of patients included in observational studies. The recent development of "randomized registry trials" combining, on the one hand, an intervention and, on the other hand, the identification of the outcome through data reuse, may also have an impact, over the next decade, on the number of patients included in randomized clinical trials.

Types of Data Clarify Senses of Data Processing Purpose in Health Care.
Authors: Mussalo P, Gain U, Hotti V Abstract Data taxonomy facilitates data valuation. The origin-based data taxonomy contains four types of data (provided, observed, derived and inferred) and 10 subcategories. In this paper, we report the results of multivocal literature around the origin-based data taxonomy. The review results are used to refine the definitions of the types of data when to figure out data valuation within health care. Furthermore, we exemplify how the types of data can be recognized in health care (e.g., patient medication, alerting about risk patients, patient logistics, remote monitoring) to re...

Ontologies in Big Health Data Analytics: Application to Routine Clinical Data.
We describe a process we have operationalised in our research. We use ontologies to resolve the semantics of complex health care data. The use of the method is demonstrated through a pregnancy case identification method. Pregnancy data are recorded in different coding systems and stored in different general practice systems; and pregnancy has its own complexities in that not all pregnancies proceed to term, they have different lengths and involve multiple providers of health care.

Disparities in Population-Level Socio-Economic Factors Are Associated with Disparities in Preoperative Clinical Risk Factors in Children.
In this study, we analyze correlations between SEEFs and CRFs and correlations between CRFs and surgery outcomes. We used a dataset from a cohort of 460 surgical cases who underwent surgery at a children's hospital in Memphis, Tennessee in the United States. The analysis was conducted on 23 CRFs, 9 surgery outcomes, and 10 SEEFs and demographic variables. Our results show that population-level SEEFs are significantly associated with both patient-level CRFs and surgery outcomes. These findings may be important in the improved understanding of health disparities in pediatric surgery outcomes. PMID: 30306911 [PubMed - in ...

Preference-Sensitive Apomediative Decision Support Is Key to Facilitating Self-Produced Health.
Authors: Kaltoft MK, Nielsen JB, Dowie J Abstract In the health capital model, the main function of health services is not to produce health, but to support the person in their self-production investments. In the health context there are three types of decision support tools, depending on the role of the provider (e.g. clinician) and person. Non-mediative tools are designed to help the clinician decide what is best for the patient. Intermediative Patient Decision Aids are designed to help the clinician and patient decide together, in an encounter, what is best for the patient. Apomediative Personalised Decision Sup...
