Use of clinical simulation in development and implementation of clinical information system

Project Details

Description

Since 2007 the Capital Region of Denmark has conducted simulations on a regular basis in order to qualify IT systems to the clinic. These simulations range from simple set-ups during the development phase, to full scale simulations. The simulations are held at IT Experimentar-ium (ITX) and the lab uses the simulation facilities at DIMS (Danish Institute for Medical Simu-lation).
The aim of this PhD study is to develop and operationalize methods to design and evaluate information systems that are to be used in the clinical work practice at the hospitals.
The PhD study will investigate the significance of using simulation in the development and evaluation of clinical information systems. This will be done by literature study and several case studies. The scientific results are aimed to be put into practice. The PhD study encom-pass four case studies covering full scale simulation test of clinical information systems from various phases in the development life cycle, and will hereby investigate the usefulness of using simulation in combination with the design and evaluation of information systems in healthcare.
Up till now three case studies have been conducted
1. assessment of potential benefits of a Planning and Coordination Module
2. evaluation of work practice and the usefulness of electronic signing results of different tests; i.e. blood tests and microbiological tests
3. validation of user requirements and use cases in connection with procurement of an it-platform for healthcare in The Capital Region of Denmark and Region Zealand
4. assessment of three solutions in connection with procurement an it-platform for healthcare in The Capital Region of Denmark and Region Zealand
