The case for open source healthcare information systems

Writing about web page http://www.idh.warwick.ac.uk/IDH/carl-reynolds-seminar.html

Dr Carl Reynolds will talk at the next IDH seminar on 24th August at 4pm at the International Digital Laboratory, University of Warwick.

Carl Reynolds is a physician, health informatician and clinical advisor with an interest in change management enabled by health care IT.

The title of his talk is: The case for open source healthcare information systems: An overview of healthcare information system licencing and a look to the future.

Healthcare information systems have the potential to bring improvements in patient safety, quality of patient care and efficiency. The sale of health care information systems is an emerging multibillion pound industry and as policy makers, health care professionals and patients, we have a responsibility to maximize the return on investment. Alternative licensing and software development models, the role of standards and the role of communities are analyzed and it is argued that open source licensing is needed to promote safer, more effective health care information systems.

Everyone is welcome.

Third Star

James (Cumberbatch) wants to make the most of his life – what’s left of it.

He invites his three closest friends to join him on a camping trip to his favourite place in the world. The undertaking, however, is fraught with practical difficulties, surreal encounters and emotionally ravaging revelations. For his best friend Miles, the trip means wrestling with the gloomy reality that the ones he loves tend to die. For Davy it’s about being there and holding the effort together, while for Bill it’s about running away from the mistakes he’s made and the comfortable trap that is his life.

Each step of the journey is one step further from the past and to a brave new world about courage, dignity and the beauty that lies in the friendship between these four young men.

Q&A with producer and member of the cast following the screening on Tue 31 May

Reminder: Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2011

Writing about web page http://www.survey.bris.ac.uk/warwick/ptes2011

Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2011 (closes 31 May 2011, 23.50 BST; only students fully enrolled on a Master’s level programme are eligible to participate, except those with an overseas study location, i.e. those who never come to Warwick during the course of their study)

This survey has been developed by the Higher Education Academy and is currently in use at over 90 other higher education institutions across the UK. The overall aim is to identify, at both local and national level, areas where improvements could be made and efforts targeted further to enhance the provision of postgraduate taught programmes.

PTES is an online questionnaire and it should not take longer than 20 minutes to complete. Responses are anonymous and cannot be tracked back in any way. All results will be presented in an aggregated form. A high response rate is necessary to obtain robust results, so your participation is very important and greatly appreciated.

PTES is available until 31 May 2011 (23.50 BST) and can be accessed from: http://www.survey.bris.ac.uk/warwick/ptes2011

Log-in details were provided in emails sent by the Graduate School in early March, April and May. Any questions regarding the survey, including issues with access, should be directed to Martin Mik (m.mik@warwick.ac.uk) in the Graduate School.

Digital Healthcare

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/alumni/knowledge/health/digital_health/

Digital healthcare has evolved from the need for more proactive and efficient healthcare delivery, and seeks to offer new types of care that are only possible thanks to sophisticated technology. At the Institute of Digital Healthcare, researchers are looking to develop new technologies, but to firmly base this on understanding the benefits and limitations of the current care on offer.
