Developing national eHealth infrastructures--results and lessons from Europe

Karl A Stroetmann, Jörg Artmann, Veli Stroetmann
2011 AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings  
The European eHealth Strategies study analyzed policy development and strategy planning, implementation measures as well as progress achieved with respect to national and regional eHealth solutions in 34 European countries, with emphasis on barriers and enablers beyond technology. The focus was on infrastructure elements and selected solutions emphasized in the European Union eHealth Action Plan of 2004. At the governance level, issues around administrative responsibility and competence

Solutions analyzed included patient summaries and electronic health records, ePrescription, telehealth, electronic identifiers, eCards as well standardization aspects. Results indicate that across Europe eHealth has matured from a policy debate to a very tangible, implementation oriented endeavor.

Combining Inclusion Polymorphism and Parametric Polymorphism [article]

Sabine Glesner, Karl Stroetmann
1999 arXiv   pre-print
We show that the question whether a term is typable is decidable for type systems combining inclusion polymorphism with parametric polymorphism provided the type constructors are at most unary. To prove this result we first reduce the typability problem to the problem of solving a system of type inequations. The result is then obtained by showing that the solvability of the resulting system of type inequations is decidable.

Designing a socio-economic assessment method for integrative biomedical research: the Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human project

Rainer Thiel, Karl A Stroetmann, Veli N Stroetmann, Marco Viceconti
2009 Studies in Health Technology and Informatics  
In integrative biomedical research, methods assessing the clinical or even socio-economic impact of more complex technologies such as Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-based tools for modelling and simulation of human physiology have rarely been applied. The EU funded Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human (VPHOP) research project, part of the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) European initiative, will create a patient-specific hypermodel to predict the absolute risk of bone

The project has developed an innovative, multilevel generic methodological framework to assess the clinical and socio-economic impact of biocomputational models. The assessment framework consists of three components: a socio-economic cost benefit analysis, health economic analysis of care pathways, and disease cost simulation models. Through its holistic perspective, the method provides a tool to appraise the overall value of biocomputational models for society.

Seduct — A proof compiler for first order logic [chapter]

Karl Stroetmann
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present Seduct, which is a theorem prover for many-sorted first order logic. Seduct has been specially tailored to economically discharge proof obligations arising during the process of software verification. We will mainly describe those features of Seduct which distinguish this theorem prover from other theorem provers and which make it especially suited for software verification.

A Completeness Result for SLDNF-Resolution

Karl Stroetmann
1993 The Journal of Logic Programming  
Because of the possibility of floundering and infinite derivations, SLDNFresolution is, in general, not complete. The classical approach [17] to get a completeness result is to restrict the attention to normal programs P and normal goals G, such that P u { G} is allowed and P is hierarchical. Unfortunately, the class of all normal programs and all normal goals meeting these requirements is not powerful enough to be of great practical importance. But after refining the concept of allowedness by

United in Diversity: Legal Challenges on the Road Towards Interoperable eHealth Solutions in Europe

Karl A. Stroetmann, Jorg Artmann, Jos Dumortier, Griet Verhenneman
2012 European Journal for Biomedical Informatics  
The use of IT enabled health services such as an electronic patient summary, ePrescription or telemedicine (commonly called eHealth services) are subject to differing degrees of legal regulation across Europe. This article presents the legal challenges facing further diffusion of eHealth services across Europe, based on the results of a study funded by the European Commission. Challenges of electronic identification and authentication are examples, alongside questions regarding healthcare

In addition, efforts by the EC funded large scale pilot project epSOS concerning cross-border patient summary and ePrescription services are described, notably the ep-SOS approach of framework agreements to address challenges resulting from different legal systems at national level.

Towards AI-Enabled Multimodal Diagnostics and Management of COVID-19 and Comorbidities in Resource-Limited Settings

A conceptual artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled framework is presented in this study involving triangulation of various diagnostic methods for management of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its associated comorbidities in resource-limited settings (RLS). The proposed AI-enabled framework will afford capabilities to harness low-cost polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based molecular diagnostics, radiological image-based assessments, and end-user provided information for the detection of

It will support self-data capture, clinical risk stratification, explanation-based intelligent recommendations for patient triage, disease diagnosis, patient treatment, contact tracing, and case management. This will enable communication with end-users in local languages through cheap and accessible means, such as WhatsApp/Telegram, social media, and SMS, with careful consideration of the need for personal data protection. The objective of the AI-enabled framework is to leverage multimodal diagnostics of COVID-19 and associated comorbidities in RLS for the diagnosis and management of COVID-19 cases and general support for pandemic recovery. We intend to test the feasibility of implementing the proposed framework through community engagement in sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries where many people are living with pre-existing comorbidities. A multimodal approach to disease diagnostics enabling access to point-of-care testing is required to reduce fragmentation of essential services across the continuum of COVID-19 care.
