Mark Barrios commented on Mark Barrios's blog post Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care
"As I came across numerous and varied literature on CDSS I notice some of them are free and can easily be accessed by end-users, such as AJCC staging system, although most of them aren't free particularly those focused on specific needs, eg.,…"

Mark Barrios commented on Daniela Harder's blog post Assignment One: Use of Electronic forms in Cancer MDMs
"Cool! If successful and is good to go, Gynae-Onc MDT will be very pleased to give it a try. I'm still working in a hospital setting but not anymore in an MDT. I'll be pleased to be notified when it's rolled out, thanks!"

Giselle Pascual commented on Mark Barrios's blog post Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care
"Hi Mark,  Just curious about whether or not you looked at the cost effectiveness of a GA approach to CDSS in your essay. I read a systematic review which shows the effectiveness of CDSS at the clinical level, but it states that studies on the…"

"SMT is something new to me, would be keen to know more about it when available. Yes, results of the meeting are only typed via Sorapno MedDocs. MDM notes are brought to the meeting but considered helpful for the attendees. Is the project an MDM…"

Mark Barrios commented on Mark Barrios's blog post Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care
"Thanks for the comment Bhavisha. Most CDSS support the clinician in decision-making and in treatment planning which subsequently must be discussed with the patient. Patient autonomy, values, and decision making are another points for discussion to…"

Mark Barrios commented on Daniela Harder's blog post Assignment One: Use of Electronic forms in Cancer MDMs
"Hi Daniela Most MDTs are tertiary providers and you are right in saying that most referrals to MDM come from either a secondary provider or from another specialist but not from GPs (which is also the ideal protocol). But in my experience at…"

Bhavisha Daya commented on Mark Barrios's blog post Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care
"Hi Mark, CDSS is certainly a very interesting topic particular due to the vastness of the different areas that it is applicable. Also, the use of decision support in this context would certainly allow for the best options to be viewed in…"

Mark Barrios commented on Mark Barrios's blog post Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care
"Thanks for the input Senthil! As GA is an example of latest innovative technique in CDSS, it uses the Bayesian network which applies probability statistics and a specialised method of gene expression data analysis. Like other forms of technological…"

Senthil commented on Mark Barrios's blog post Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care
"I have studied Machine Learning algorithms like Genetic Algorithm, Bayesian Networks etc with respect to computer science. Though the concept is evolved from probability statistics it can be applied on varied science field. One Such application is…"

"It wouldn't be as complicated as you thought if you are the user, you will just let the machine do the thinking for you but flexibility and behavioural change are really necessary and very challenging at times."

Mark Barrios commented on Sharon Dooley's blog post Shared Maternity Record of Care - A NZ Health IT Board Project
"Would be good if the Ministry invests (not only in maternity care) on national web-based electronic health records of every New Zealander which can be accessed by the clinician/specialist who is looking after the patient (health record follows the…"

Mark Barrios commented on Daniela Harder's blog post Assignment One: Use of Electronic forms in Cancer MDMs
"Electronic records/forms and technological innovations are undeniably helpful to MDMs in 3 ways: 1. in gathering electronic health records of a case being discussed; 2. in collecting and recording data for research; and 3. in producing electronic…"

Genetic algorithm (GA) approach in clinical decision support systems (CDSS): a partner in complex cancer care

Posted on April 26, 2012 at 21:55 9 Comments

My essay focuses on how CDSS can be highly useful in cancer care management by applying genetic algorithm – the ability to perform inference on known information based on prior experience or knowledge to make the right decision. This ability to infer likely diagnoses, expected treatment response, etc., (to be highly useful in cancer management especially in diagnostic interpretation, treatment planning and therapy recommendations) is what differentiates Algorithmic CDSS from the broader…

Collaborative Care Management Solution (CCMS) for chronic care disease management

Posted on April 1, 2012 at 9:06 2 Comments

In connection to Chris Paton's post on NZ Shared Care pilot video, the National Shared Care Plan Programme (NSCP) was formed to initiate pilot projects which trial approaches to shared care to support long-term condition management. The healthAlliance, working with regional DHB and primary/community providers in the Northern Region is engaged by the National Health IT Board to manage the programme. The healthAlliance has contracted HSAG to implement its Collaborative Care Management System…
