The scientific objective of the present project is to create an empirical basis
for the scientific research within the Center for Pervasive Computing. The center
works according to principle of experimental research across research areas. The
following research areas are involved in the present project:
- CSCW – Computer Supported Cooperative Work.
- Object Oriented Technology and Architecture.
- Human-Computer Interaction / Man-Machine Interfaces.
The scientific goals are:
- To study and develop object-oriented architecture(s) for mobile and pervasive
- To understand the dual transformation process of developing and implementing
an electro-nic patient record
- To investigate and improved software engineering practices concerned with
develop-ment of pervasive computing support
The business objective of the present project is twofold. One the one hand
the project should help enhance and develop Systematic’s software engineering
process. On the other hand the project should help create better products within
the healthcare business segment. The latter is done by providing direct input
concerning good and bad effects of implementing the Systematic’s EPR on
different hospitals, and by providing concrete visions and prototypes for future
versions of the EPR to support mobile work at the hospitals.
Furthermore this project should be used a part of marketing and sales activities
The clinical objective of this project is to shed light on the mobile aspects
of using the medicine module in the Aarhus EPR answering the following questions:
- How can we support the immense quest for mobile support from clinical personnel?
- What are the different technological solutions for mobile and/or pervasive
- In what way can the work practices be organized with different technological
The overall clinical objective is thus to aid the development of mobile clinical
tools that increases the quality of the clinical work and documentation in a way
such that the EPR becomes a support for – and not an obstacle for –
the clinical work.
