It presents the latest cutting-edge research that gives insight into neutrosophic set's novel techniques, strategies and challenges, showing how it can be used in biomedical diagnoses systems. The neutrosophic set (NS), which is a generalization of fuzzy set, offers the prospect of overcoming the restrictions of fuzzy-based approaches to medical image analysis.

HIT or Miss, 3rd Edition Lessons Learned from Health Information Technology Projects

HIT or Miss, 3rd Edition Lessons Learned from Health Information Technology Projects

Author: Jonathan Leviss Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/06/2019

This third edition presents and dissects a wide variety of HIT failures so that the reader can understand in each case what went wrong and why and how to avoid such problems, without focusing on the involvement of specific people, organizations, or vendors. The lessons may be applied to future and existing projects, or used to understand why a previous project failed. The reader also learns how common causes of failure affect different kinds of HIT projects and with different results. Cases are organized by the type of focus (hospital care, ambulatory care, and community). Each case provides analysis by an author who was involved in the project plus the insight of an HIT expert. This book presents a model to discuss HIT failures in a safe and protected manner, providing an opportunity to focus on the lessons offered by a failed initiative as opposed to worrying about potential retribution for exposing a project as having failed. Access expert insight into key obstacles that must be overcome to leverage IT and transform healthcare. Each de-identified case study includes an analysis by a group of industry experts along with a counter analysis. Cases include a list of key words and are categorized by project (e.g. CPOE, business intelligence). Each case study concludes with a lesson learned section. Thought provoking commentary chapters add additional context to the challenges faced during HIT projects, from social and organizational to legal and contractual.

Medical Bioinformatics and Biochemistry (Diabormatics)

Medical Bioinformatics and Biochemistry (Diabormatics)

Author: Rajneesh Prajapat Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/05/2019

The first edition of Medical Bioinformatics and Biochemistry (Diabormatics) explains how medical biochemistry and bioinformatics could be used as a tool for analyzing the research data related to disease diagnosis and treatment. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary approach that includes concepts of biotechnology, microbiology, molecular biology, medicine and forensic science. This book is based on the recent development in the research dynamics of medical bioinformatics, biochemistry and progress in these fields. The book provides reference material for students of medical and life sciences. The development in genomic sequencing and in silico biology has provided the data needed to accomplish comparisons of derived nucleotide and protein sequences. The results of analysis may be used to formulate and test hypotheses about biochemical function. This first edition provides readers with a practical guide covering the full scope of concepts in medical bioinformatics and biochemistry related to diabetes. The basic purpose of this book is for students of medical and life sciences to understand the research methods of biochemistry and bioinformatics. This includes storing, receiving, and analyzing data from databases using various in silico tools. This book is a useful source of knowledge for MBBS, B.Sc, M.Sc / M.D. / M.S. and Ph.D level students looking for an accessible introduction to the subject.

Systematic Searching Practical ideas for improving results

Systematic Searching Practical ideas for improving results

Author: Paul Levay Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/01/2019

In resource poor, cost saving times, this book provides practical advice on new methods and technologies involved in systematic searching and explores the role of information professionals in delivering these changes The editors bring together expert international practitioners and researchers to highlight the latest thinking on systematic searching. Beginning by looking at the methods and techniques underlying systematic searching, the book then examines the current challenges and the potential solutions to more effective searching in detail, before considering the role of the information specialist as an expert searcher. Systematic Searching blends theory and practice and takes into account different approaches to information retrieval with a special focus being given to searching for complex topics in a health-related environment. The book does not presume an in-depth prior knowledge or experience of systematic searching and includes case studies, practical examples and ideas for further research and reading. The book is divided into three parts: Methods covers theoretical approaches to evidence synthesis and the implications that these have for the search process, including searching for complex topics and choosing the right sources. Technology examines new technologies for retrieving evidence and how these are leading to new directions in information retrieval and evidence synthesis. People considers the future of the information specialist as an expert searcher and explores how information professionals can develop their skills in searching, communication and collaboration to ensure that information retrieval practice is, and remains, evidence-based. Systematic Searching will be essential reading for library and information service providers and information specialists, particularly those in a health-related environment. It will also be of interest to students of library and information science, systematic reviewers, researchers and practitioners conducting complex searches in settings including social care, education and criminal justice.
