Abstract:
This is a submission to the "Interrogating the social realities of information and communications systems pre-conference workshop, ASIST AM 2006." There is great potential in the utilization of existing clinical data to assist in decision support, epidemiology, and information retrieval. As we transition from evaluating systemsâ abilities to accurately capture the information in the record, to the clinical application of results, we must incorporate the contextual influences that affect such efforts. A methodology is proposed to assist researchers in identifying strengths and weaknesses of clinical data for application to secondary purposes. The results of its application to three ongoing clinical research projects are discussed.
