SIR poster Cape Town 2010
SIR-IVAStrama has for a few years been working in a collaboration with Avd for medical informatics at the faculty of health sciences of Linköping University. The purpose of the project is multiple: SIR has an ambition to be at the forefront of efforts to create automatic transfer of data records to quality registers. This endeavor requires detailed knowledge of the subject area. The interconnection of different data sources to add significant quality data to SIR is a part of this process. An example of such an interconnection is the work of SIR-mikro where we are working to link bacteriological test results to the respective intensive care opportunity. One result of this work is the possibility to analyse the connection between cultivation results in acute infectious conditions and courses of treatment. Another result is that we can analyse the accuracy of current treatment guidelines with the cultivation results, which is described in greater detail in the attached poster. This was presented by Greger Fransson at the 13th World Congress on Medical Informatics, Medinfo 2010 in Cape Town in September 2010
