The present study has a broader scope than "just" knowledge-based systems' development: to provide a user-oriented assessment methodology for the development of medical IT-based solutions in general and with the following qualities: 1) It covers the entire system life-cycle; 2) the target users of the assessment methodology are users from the application domain of the future systems; 3) it enables formative assessment during the development and implementation of IT-based systems; 4) it is applicable independently of the system development approach and; 5) it provides users of IT-based solution with information enabling them to decide whether or not to take the system into real-life clinical usage. The study is formulated in a sequence of steps attempting a falsification based on pre-defined criteria, followed by a refinement of the recognised failure aspects and a renewed attempt, ending with a final conclusion. The four steps applied and their respective outcomes are as follows. First, - as a pilot application - a methodology for assessment of knowledge-based systems was developed and experimented with. Second, this methodology was refined and extended for application at the development of other types of IT-based systems. Third, a full-scale prospective casestudy was applied by independent users to gain experience with the methodology. At last, the lessons learned were incorporated and synthesised into the final version of the dynamic assessment methodology.

his volume of the series Lecture Notes in Medical Informatics contains the T proceedings of the Workshop on System Engineering in Medicine, which was held in Maastricht, The Netherlands, 16-18 March 1989. This workshop was sponsored by the EC under the framework of the Medical and Health Research Programme. The aim of the workshop was to assess whether there was sufficient support in the Medical Informatics community in the EC to establish a concerted action. This proceedings contain papers of the presentations given at the workshop. These presentations were centred around three themes: • Methods and Tools • Applications in the domains of chronic care and critical care • Evaluation of decision support systems The papers were prepared after the workshop and therefore we were able to include the relevant parts of the discussions which were related to the presentations. As a result of the discussions during the workshop, a proposal was prepared for the establishment of a concerted action, specifically addressing the development of guidelines for the evaluation of medical decision aids. This proposal was granted early 1990 under the same Medical and Health Research programme of the EC. Over 40 institutes are participating in this concerted action. It have been the outstanding presentations and the open discussions at the workshop that have been the starting point of this concerted action. The papers in this proceedings formed a starting point for the discussions in the meetings of the concerted action.

The Handbook of Evaluation Methods for Health Informatics provides a complete compendium of methods for evaluation of IT-based systems and solutions within healthcare. Emphasis is entirely on assessment of the IT-system within its organizational environment. The author provides a coherent and complete assessment of methods addressing interactions with and effects of technology at the organizational, psychological, and social levels. It offers an explanation of the terminology and theoretical foundations underlying the methodological analysis presented here. The author carefully guides the reader through the process of identifying relevant methods corresponding to specific information needs and conditions for carrying out the evaluation study. The Handbook takes a critical view by focusing on assumptions for application, tacit built-in perspectives of the methods as well as their perils and pitfalls. Collects a number of evaluation methods of medical informatics Addresses metrics and measures Includes an extensive list of anotated references, case studies, and a list of useful Web sites

The first section of the book is the rotated list of all words occurring in any term naming any of the concept in the language. The second part is an alphabetic listing of each term, showing its broader and narrower terms from the levels of the hierarchy directly above or below the term. The final section, the hierachical display, shows all terms in all occurrences in any of the six broad classes into which we divided the language.

The challenge of this century is to develop and introduce information technology for the improvement of quality and efficiency of health care. Telematics applications will focus on the patient and support evidence-based health informatics, will provide generic medical information for health care professionals and citizens, and support disease management as well as case management. Biometry and epidemiology continuously contribute to the progress in medicine by focussing on risk assessment, prevention, improvements in therapy, drug surveillance and safety, and by providing a rational synthesis for evidence. Presentations, demonstrations, tutorials and other contributions of medical informatics as well as the methodological contributions of biometry and epidemiology are covering an important number of topics.
