Computer-supported cooperative work in tele home care : architecture design, implementation and evaluation
MetadataShow full item record
With the development of healthcare service and computer networks, the healthcare providers are focusing on how to implant new technologies into health sections. These instant messaging techniques can lead healthcare service more efficienct than before. It is necessary to design and construct a cooperative work platform for patients and healthcare providers. They are able to communicate with each other, share information or documents and access into health records. This project will concentrate on the system design, implementation and evaluation to achieve a better performance platform. The underlying data repository will encompass distributed system aspects and data warehousing approach to promote the functions of this healthcare system. This platform will be deployed to the tele home care service and in-depth study on the healthcare services. Some of the innovations will be included in system design. The target of this project is to design the architecture of collaborative workspace for healthcare personnel and implement a prototype with useful functions. The evaluation will be conducted to validate the efficiency of proposed distributed database for patient records. In addition, it will be more flexible and less data redundant. Meanwhile, a demo system will be deployed in order to show and define the implemented functions.
