JOURNAL ARTICLE
Andreas Walker, Werner O Hackl, Bernhard Pfeifer
Secondary use of clinical health data implies a prior integration of mostly heterogenous and multidimensional data sets. A clinical data warehouse addresses the technological and organizational framework conditions required for this, by making any data available for analysis. However, users of a data warehouse often do not have a comprehensive overview of all available data and only know about their own data in their own systems - a situation which is also referred to as 'data siloed state'. This problem can be addressed and ultimately solved by implementation of a data catalog...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Jack Dowie, Mette Kjer Kaltoft, Vije Kumar Rajput
INTRODUCTION: The potential benefits from digitalisation processes will only be fully realised if the conceptual challenges they uncover are accepted and addressed, alongside the technical ones such as interoperability. Will 'computable' clinical guidelines be compatible with personalised care if the definition of the relevant disease embeds preferences that pre-empt those of the individual patient? METHOD: As a case study we investigated the definition of diabetes in glycaemic management guidelines...

Chronic wounds present a significant healthcare challenge in Austria as well as in other countries. The interdisciplinary approach to wound treatment involving various caregivers, doctors, and relatives, poses challenges in documentation and information exchange. To overcome these barriers and promote patient-centered care, a new telehealth-supported treatment pathway for chronic wounds has been developed. The primary focus was to regularly update the status of the chronic wound by responding to predefined questions and transmitted images of the chronic wound...

Systematic reviews provide robust evidence but require significant human labor, a challenge that can be mitigated with digital tools. This paper focuses on machine learning (ML) support for the title and abstract screening phase, the most time-intensive aspect of the systematic review process. The existing literature was systematically reviewed and five promising tools were analyzed, focusing on their ability to reduce human workload and their application of ML. This paper details the current state of automation capabilities and highlights significant research findings that point towards further improvements in the field...

BACKGROUND: The integration of Information Technology (IT) into private medical practice is crucial in modern healthcare. Physicians managing office-related IT without proper knowledge risk operational inefficiencies and security. OBJECTIVES: This study determines the relevance of specific IT topics in medical practice and identifies the training needs of physicians for enhancing IT competencies in healthcare.

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) may have grave consequences for patients. In the case of sepsis, the 30-day mortality rate is about 25%. HAIs cost EU member states an estimated 7 billion Euros annually. Clinical decision support tools may be useful for infection monitoring, early warning, and alerts. MONI, a tool for monitoring nosocomial infections, is used at University Hospital Vienna, but needs to be clinically and technically revised and updated. A new, completely configurable pipeline-based system for defining and processing HAI definitions was developed and validated...

REVIEW
Alexander Höller, Stefan Welte, Anna Katharina Schönlaub, Charlotte Uhlisch, Sabine Scholl-Bürgi, Anastasia Male-Dressler, Bernhard Pfeifer, Günter Schreier
Ketogenic dietary therapies (KDT) are diets that induce a metabolic condition comparable to fasting. All types of KDT comprise a reduction in carbohydrates whilst dietary fat is increased up to 90% of daily energy expenditure. The amount of protein is normal or slightly increased. KDT are effective, well studied and established as non-pharmacological treatments for pediatric patients with refractory epilepsy and specific inherited metabolic diseases such as Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome. Patients and caregivers have to contribute actively to their day-to-day care especially in terms of (self-) calculation and (self-) provision of dietary treatment as well as (self-) measurement of blood glucose and ketones for therapy monitoring...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition in hospitalised patients can lead to serious complications, worse patient outcomes and longer hospital stays. State-of-the-art screening methods rely on scores, which need additional manual assessments causing higher workload. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this prospective study was to validate a machine learning (ML)-based approach for an automated prediction of malnutrition in hospitalised patients. METHODS: For 159 surgical in-patients, an assessment of malnutrition by dieticians was compared to the ML-based prediction conducted in the evening of admission...

BACKGROUND: CareNet is the IT-based tool for Case and Care Management (CCM) in Tyrol, which facilitates standardised documentation of CCM activities. OBJECTIVES: Analysing the pilot usage of CareNet Tyrol. METHODS: Evaluation of the success and user experience of CareNet, expert interviews and a questionnaire-based assessment. RESULTS: Feedback from users in both phases indicated that the CareNet platform provides general benefits, but falls short of fully supporting the daily work of CCM experts and avoiding the need for parallel use of different documentation tools...

BACKGROUND: Elevating systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) independently influences clinical outcomes and adverse cardiovascular events. Blood pressure can be affected by modifiable (such as diets and physical activities) and non-modifiable factors (such as age and gender). Elevated blood pressure (EBP or formerly prehypertension) during childhood is associated with hypertension incidence in later adulthood. OBJECTIVES: This cross- sectional study investigated modifiable risk factors for blood pressure among children (aged 3-12)...
