Requirements Elicitation On Integrating Clinical Guidelines To Electronic Patient Record: An Empirical Study
There is little research on the requirements elicitation of integrating of clinical guidelines and electronic patient record while in this master project I managed to use different methods to collect and elicit requirements on this field. [Methods] Firstly, I did paper study on the relevant topics about requirements elicitation of clinical guideline integration and further an experiment and follow-up survey was designed to (1) identify the importance and necessity of navigating and searching in clinical guideline and (2) elicit relevant requirements to improve the use of clinical guideline and the integration. [Discussion] Through analyzing the data, we found that providing the recommendation lists can improve the speed of scanning the guideline; the structure and searching function of clinical guideline had shape the usage of clinical guideline. [Conclusion] The findings show that clinical guideline structure and the recommendation format are important factors that could affect the performance of clinicians searching and decision making. Therefore, to successfully provide guidelines support into patient record and enhance the searching function, guidelines should be computerized in a more searching friendly and structured way, also rather than isolated from the patient data.
