Last week it was confirmed that three papers, where I’m one of the co-authors, were accepted to the Medical Informatics Europe (MIE) 2018 conference in Gothenburg! On top of this DOME researchers also got a workshop accepted to the same conference.
One of the papers was accepted as a “short communication”. This was a submission about a few results from the national patient survey (about the patient accessible electronic health record system Journalen), related to psychiatry patients and their perception of Journalen. The title of the paper is “Vulnerable, but not neglected? – Patient accessible psychiatry records” and it’s written by Gunilla Myreteg and me.
Another paper (which was accepted as a full paper) was related to waiting times before the patient can access new information in Journalen. Even in this paper we used a few results from the national patient survey. The title of that paper is “Timing it right – patients’ online access to their record notes in Sweden” and it’s written by Maria Hägglund, me, Rose-Mharie Åhlfeldt and Isabella Scandurra.
The last paper (also accepted as a full paper) was actually based on an old master’s thesis project, supervised by Åsa Cajander. This paper also related to Journalen, and more specifically to how nurses’ work environment is affected by the patient being able to access information in Journalen. The title of that paper is “Medical Records Online for Patients and Effects on the Work Environment of Nurses” and it’s written by Åsa, me, Sara Englund and Anastasia Hansman.
In a later blog post I’m going to introduce the workshop at Uppsala Health Summit 2018 that Åsa Cajander, Christiane Grünloh and I are organizing. The MIE workshop, with the title “Identifying the Need of Self-reported Data and Self-measurements for Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer” is actually a narrowed-down version of the Uppsala Health Summit one. I will be the main organizer of this MIE workshop and Åsa, Christiane and Isabella Scandurra are co-organizers.
All in all, this means that the DOME consortium is well represented at MIE and as I have said earlier we will also organize something at Vitalis, which runs in parallel at the same venue. I will surely write more about these papers and the workshop as well as our activities at Vitalis later on during the spring. So, stay tuned! 🙂
