Paving the Way for Patient Pathways: Synthesizing a User-Centered Method Design with Results from a Systematic Literature Review

Peggy Richter, Hannes Schlieter

Technische Universität Dresden, Chair of Wirtschaftsinformatik, esp. Systems Development, Germany

Patient pathways are recognized as a valuable governance instrument to increase standardization, quality, comparability, and transparency of care in comprehensive care networks. Yet, methodological support is lacking. This paper aims to support their development, implementation and continuous maintenance. Therefore, a systematic literature review of existing pathway methods was conducted and a consolidated pathway framework was derived. The framework was complemented by additional steps specific for patient pathways, which were derived in workshops with potential end users of the method proposed. Therefore, a qualitative content analysis was conducted. The additional steps emphasize the longing for generic patient pathway templates and their adaptation to national, regional, and local conditions of care networks. This work is a step forward towards standardized patient pathway development, their large-scale implementation and digitization. In the next step, the proposed method will be applied and tested in the European iPAAC Joint Action addressing innovations in cancer control.

Der Einsatz von Augmented-Reality-Headsets eröffnet vielfältige Anwendungsmöglichkeiten und könnte auch in der Wundversorgung zur Anwendung kommen. Das Zusammenspiel mit der Nutzungsumgebung sowie die erweiterten Möglichkeiten der Interaktion erhöhen die Komplexität der Parameter, die bei der Gestaltung geeigneter Applikationen beachtet werden müssen. Daher verfolgt dieser Beitrag zwei Ziele. Als erstes werden Gestaltungsempfehlungen für Augmented-Reality-Applikationen für Headsets formuliert. Als zweites werden die zuvor formulierten Gestaltungsempfehlungen anhand eines Konzepts für eine Nutzeroberfläche zur Dokumentation chronischer Wunden demonstriert. Es wurde eine systematische Literaturrecherche durchgeführt. Von den 629 gefundenen Publikationen konnten 15 als relevant identifiziert werden. Die Inhalte der Publikationen wurden mithilfe einer qualitativen Inhaltsanalyse nach Mayring (2015) analysiert. Insgesamt konnten zehn Gestaltungsempfehlungen für Augmented-Reality-Applikationen generiert und anhand des Anwendungsfalls, der Dokumentation chronischer Wunden, demonstriert werden. Die präsentierten Gestaltungsempfehlungen können als Basis für die Entwicklung von Augmented-Reality-Applikationen insbesondere mit dem Fokus auf Headsets genutzt werden.

Gamified Information Systems for Assisted Living Facilities – Relevant Design Guidelines, Affordances and Adoption Barriers

Mathias Eggert, Rudolf Edelbauer

University of Applied Sciences Aachen, Germany

Gamification and gamified information systems (GIS) apply video game elements to encourage the work on boring and everyday tasks. Meanwhile, several research works provide evidence that gamification increases efficiency and effectivity of such tasks. The paper at hand investigates the health care sector, which is challenged with cost pressure and suffers in process efficiency. We hypothesize that GIS may improve the efficiency and quality of care processes. By applying an interview-based content analysis, the paper at hand evaluates gamification elements in an assisted living environment and provides three research contributions. First, insights into relevant GIS affordances and application examples for assisted living facilities are given. Second, assisted living experts evaluate GIS design guidelines. Both the relevant affordances and design principles comprise a basis for the development of a GIS for social workers in assisted living facilities. Third, potential adoption barriers and design guidelines for GIS in assisted living are presented.

A Systematic Literature Review on Antecedents of Workarounds related to Information Systems in Hospitals

The use of digital technology in the healthcare sector, and in hospitals in particular, has an impact on daily routine and on the quality of patient care. In dynamic organizations like hospitals, where urgent needs have to be met, employees develop workarounds for different reasons, which in turn can have a negative impact on the quality of patient care. While the existing literature focusses mainly on the consequences of IT mismatch to work practices in hospitals and classifications thereof, a holistic understanding of the underlying reasons for workers’ deviating behavior is missing. This article begins to close this research gap with a systematic literature review on antecedents of workarounds. The analysis provides a valuable contribution for both research and practice, as measuring root causes for behavior enables organizations to understand and develop control mechanisms.
