  1. Implementing an electronic medication overview in Belgium.

    Storms, Hannelore; Marquet, Kristel; Nelissen, Katherine; Hulshagen, Leen; Lenie, Jan; Remmen, Roy; Claes, Neree
    Background: An accurate medication overview is essential to reduce medication errors. Therefore, it is essential to keep the medication overview up-to-date and to exchange healthcare information between healthcare professionals and patients. Digitally shared information yields possibilities to improve communication. However, implementing a digitally shared medication overview is challenging. This articles describes the development process of a secured, electronic platform designed for exchanging medication information as executed in a pilot study in Belgium, called “Vitalink”. Findings: The goal of “Vitalink” is to improve the exchange of medication information between professionals working in healthcare and patients in order to achieve a more efficient...

    Storms, Hannelore; Claes, Neree; Hulshagen, Leen; Conings, Stefanie; Nelissen, Katherine
    Achtergrond Medicatiemanagement vereist een goede communicatie tussen zorgverleners intra- en transmuraal. Doelstelling In deze studie wordt nagegaan of een papieren medicatieschema de communicatie tussen zorgverleners van de eerste en tweede lijn in Zuidoost-Limburg verbetert. Methode In deze regio werd een papieren medicatieschema geïmplementeerd. Via een voor- en na-bevraging bij deelnemende zorgverleners werd het potentieel van het papieren medicatieschema nagegaan. De verwachtingen, de bevindingen en het gebruik van dit schema werden bevraagd. Resultaten Als belangrijkste valkuilen worden tijdsinvestering van zorgverleners en de medewerking van patiënten genoteerd. Een papieren medicatieschema blijkt voornamelijk te worden gebruikt om medicatiefouten te reduceren. Daarnaast zien slechts enkele zorgverleners het potentieel van een papieren medicatieschema als instrument...

  3. Implementing an electronic medication overview in Belgium.

    STORMS, Hannelore; MARQUET, Kristel; CLAES, Neree
    Objectives: Digitally sharing information enables improved communication, consequently increasing accuracy of a medication overview, resulting in reduced medication errors [1]. The aim of this study is to evaluate implementation of an electronic medication overview, particularly its accessibility and usability. Methods: In Belgium a project called ???Vitalink??? was implemented. Main objective of this project was to improve the exchange of health information between healthcare professionals as well as towards patients. Software packages generating an electronic medication overview out of patients??? health records, were developed. The generated medication overview listed all prescribed medication with name, dose, frequency, way of administration and moment of intake. Because data...

  6. Process evaluation outcomes from a global child obesity prevention intervention

    Pettigrew, Simone; Borys, Jean Michel; du Plessis, Hugues Ruault; Walter, Lea; Huang, Terry T-K; Levi, Jeffrey; VINCK, Jan
    Background: While it is acknowledged that child obesity interventions should cover multiple ecological levels (downstream, midstream and upstream) to maximize their effectiveness, there is a lack of evaluation data to guide the development and implementation of such efforts. To commence addressing this knowledge gap, the present study provides process evaluation data relating to the experiences of groups implementing the EPODE approach to child obesity prevention in various locations around the world. The aim of this exploratory study was to investigate the barriers and facilitators to program implementation in program sites around the world to assist in developing strategies to enhance...

  12. ENT One Day Surgery: critical analysis with the HFMEA method

    MARQUET, Kristel; CLAES, Neree; Postelmans, T.; LEMKENS, Peter; Rosseel, M.; Torfs, A.; VLEUGELS, Arthur
    Objectives: Research shows that 51.4% of adverse events in hospitals occur in surgery(1) and that 3-22% of surgical patients experience adverse events? The risk may be even higher when turnover is high and when patients are children, as is often the case in ear, nose and throat surgery. This quality project therefore started in response to requests from physicians in two hospitals in the Flemish part of Belgium. The aim of this study is to use the Healthcare Failure Mode & Effect Analysis method to evaluate the process flow for ear, nose and throat patients, and to redesign the process...

  14. Comparing the effectiveness of two cardiovascular prevention programmes for highly educated professionals in general practice: a randomised clinical trial

    CLAES, Neree; JACOBS, Nele; CLAEYS, Els; SCHROOTEN, Ward; DE BOURDEAUDHUIJ, Ilse
    Background Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of mortality and morbidity and its prevalence is set to increase. While the benefits of medical and lifestyle interventions are established, the effectiveness of interventions which seek to improve the way preventive care is delivered in general practice is less so. The aim was to study and to compare the effectiveness of 2 intervention programmes for reducing cardiovascular risk factors within general practice. Methods A randomised controlled trial was conducted in Belgium between 2007-2010 with 314 highly educated and mainly healthy professionals allocated to a medical (MP) or a medical???+???lifestyle (MLP) programme. The MP consisted...

  15. Similar heart rates between atrial fibrillation and sinus rhythm in asymptomatic populations justify large scale screening to improve the detection of atrial fibrillation.

    Mairesse, Georges H.; Scavée, Christophe; CLAES, Neree; Goethals, Peter; Vijgen, Johan; Goethals, Marnix; Vandekerkhove, Yves
    Purpose: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is known to be asymptomatic in up to 1/3 of patients. Early detection is however useful to prevent thrombo-embolic event. Since 2010, large awareness and screening campaigns are organized annually on a national level. Clinical characteristics of AF diagnosed during screening in this asymptomatic population are however not known. Methods: Voluntary screening was performed using the Omron® Heart Scan. At the moment of screening, subjects were asked to complete a simple questionnaire to assess their clinical characteristics. In 2012, 21.586 asymptomatic subjects were screened in 89 hospitals. A total of 17.563 questionnaires was collected from subjects...

    Vlayen, Annemie; Marquet, Kristel; Schrooten, Ward; Vleugels, Arthur; Weekers, Frank; Hellings, Johan; Claes, Neree
    Background Adverse events are unintended patient injuries that arise from healthcare management resulting in disability, prolonged hospital stay or death. Adverse events that require intensive care admission imply a considerable financial burden to the healthcare system. The epidemiology of adverse events in Belgian hospitals has never been assessed systematically. Findings A multistage retrospective review study of patients requiring a transfer to a higher level of care will be conducted in six hospitals in the province of Limburg. Patient records are reviewed starting from January 2012 by a clinical team consisting of a research nurse, a physician and a clinical pharmacist. Besides the incidence...
