Mitigating Usability Issues in Legacy EHR Systems to Improve Patient Safety: A Learning Health System Approach

Description: This paper describes an on-going research project examining currently used processes in both hospitals and EHR vendor companies for identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating electronic health record (EHR) software issues, and usability issues, that may compromise patient safety as they arise in the implemented or legacy EHR system. This on-going project includes 3 interviews with CMIOs at hospitals and 3 interviews with EHR vendors. Next steps include surveying both groups. The project can be considered as part of a learning health system (LHS) approach in that it seeks to identify best practices in terms of the process for addressing these EHR issues. The LHS approach seeks to improve long term outcomes in health care by identifying optimal delivery processes and to do so in a systematic, rather than a haphazard way. (Friedman & Rigby, 2013).

The Impact of Social Isolation Arising from COVID-19 Pandemic on the Use of Customer Service Channels

Description: The new coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic forced the population to adapt routines, create new habits and adapt to the new reality. A significant change resulting from social isolation was the way that consumers began to seek the provision of services and purchase of products. What was previously done predominantly in physical stores, started to be carried out by digital channels, according to the customers' preference. Because it provides essential services, Companhia Águas de Joinville (CAJ) also needed to adapt, creating conditions for digital service for 100% of customer demands. However, the simple availability does not mean immediate adhesion by the population, as customers have their preferences. This article intends to demonstrate how the migration of face-to-face service to other channels in Basic Sanitation behaved in Joinville and what the consumer preferred during the quarantine.

Development of Micro and Pilot Projects, Evaluation of Technologies, and Developing Data/Information Infrastructure

Description: Successful organizations are continuously looking for better ways to improve efficiency. Knowledge management (KM) in institutions is essentially based on an understanding of knowledge creation and knowledge transfer. At Tarrant County College, we are currently developing a District-wide knowledge management (KM) program. This KM process is implemented via micro pilot projects and processes; and an analysis of current technology, structure, and culture. We carefully try to anticipate challenges we will encounter as the project is executed (geographical distance during a pandemic, cultural barriers, dealing with tacit knowledge…). Next, we carefully begin to create a road map for the KM process including: Establishing objectives, preparing culture change, creating a high-level process, identifying KM/communication/knowledge dissemination gaps, selecting appropriate technology, and deciphering the current status of KM throughout the District. Then, we attempt to implement our KM process via micro pilot projects. We will soon develop methods for evaluating our KM workflow. Our initial results suggest Laserfiche might be able to host 70% of or data and information, however other tools such as ITSM, Microsoft TEAMS, Team Dynamics… will also be needed to host data and information.

Role of Social Media in Spreading Fake News During COVID-19 Pandemic: A Survey among University Students of Bangladesh

Description: Arising in China in December 2019, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) soon spread to other countries worldwide including Bangladesh. Mass media and social media platforms played an important role in providing Coronavirus related information and news as they enable people to share news as well as personal experiences with one another rapidly. Since little is known about COVID-19, various fake news spread across social media that panicked people into making panic decisions. The primary objective of this study is to examine how social media is spreading fake or unauthentic news during the time of COVID-19 pandemic. This study also focuses on how the university students of Bangladesh are playing their roles in the spread of fake news in social media. An online survey was conducted to reach a wide number of university students who own at least one social media account. A well-structured questionnaire was designed containing both open and close ended questions. Google forms was used to build the survey instrument. The questionnaire was distributed to the students using different social media platforms. Collected data were analyzed using SPSS version 20 and MS Excel. The study showed that the students sometimes received COVID-19 related fake news. The main reason behind the spread of fake news is that people usually do not check the authenticity and reliability of any news before sharing and different social media groups are acting as the birthplace of fake news. The study also showed that most of the students check the authenticity and reliability and they critically evaluate each news before sharing. Majority of the students are fairly confident in detecting fake news in social media. This is the first known attempt in Bangladesh to identify the role of social media in spreading fake news during COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise

Description: Disinformation and misinformation are pervasive in unregulated social-media environments, which are used habitually for obtaining news. Fenn et al in 2019 stated that “Given that people tend to share interesting information to maintain social relationships or to manage their impressions, information that receives more likes may subsequently be shared more often” (Fenn, Ramsay, Kantner, Pezdek, & Abed, 2019, p.133) Recent studies also revealed that misinformation from politicians and celebrities has increased in recent years which lead to more engagement on Twitter (Brennen, et al. 2020 ). There has been a lot of misinformation pertaining to COVID-19 masks on Twitter. Due to the misinformation, many people might not believe in the effectiveness of masks. Even though studies have shown the effectiveness of wearing masks in different countries (Lyu and Wehby, 2020). Not wearing masks affects people's health and indirectly increases the spread of COVID-19. Studies of social noise and misinformation cases on social media are needed, specifically focusing on how social noise influences and contributes to the spread of misleading and possibly harmful messages.

Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Management in South African Automotive Industries

Description: Automotive industries in the developed world have strived to improve performance and productivity by incorporating Knowledge Management (KM) practices in their manufacturing processes. This has been attributed to the use of upgraded technological capabilities in the acquisition, sharing, and retention of organizational knowledge. Literature has unpacked that as much as automotive industries need Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) in their KM strategy, they should also include aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to facilitate and share knowledge (Wisskirchen et al., 2017; Calitz, Poisat & Cullen, 2017; Cronin, Conway & Walsh, 2019). More so, they recognised the limitations of ICTs concerning the management of tacit knowledge, which is intangible and difficult to share, as it plays a crucial role in the KM process. Despite the interest of many authors towards KM in automotive industries, there is a lack of studies aimed at investigating AI as a KM enabler in the South African automotive industry. This is a relevant issue as knowledge in the automotive industries tends to manifest itself tacitly. This realization has spawned a growing interest in incorporating advanced technologies like artificial intelligence into KM practices to overcome knowledge loss and bringing in innovation in automotive industries. It is against this backdrop; the study seeks to investigate AI as a KM enabler in automotive industries of South Africa.
