Abstract

In the last few years the basis for national guidelines for the indications of coronary angiography, coronary revascularisation and hysterectomy has been established. The guidelines have been published and are accessible to medical doctors and patients on the Internet using a database system called "Second Opinion System": http:/(/)sos.inf.ethz.ch Dissemination, implementation and validation of the guidelines will be of major importance in the near future. With reference to validation, the question remains whether the established guidelines are correct for the everyday treatment of patients. A suitable method of answering this important question is comparison between the appropriateness and necessity rates of the various indication groups, combined with outcome measurements. The Internet-based second opinion system (SOS) may be used for data collection in order to verify hypotheses. Because of the database architecture, only relevant information about the patients is collected via Internet, independent of time and place. In addition, the system allows users to evaluate their individual data, and special attention is given to data protection. The discussion about priorities in health care (rationing) will be increasingly important in the near future. The present project may offer a way of maintaining adequate access to health care services for patients. Therefore, the participation of as many institutions as possible in the project "quality assurance of indication and outcome in interventional cardiology and in gynaecology" is of great importance.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
