Abstract

In five years of co-operative work there have been developed within the Departments of Medical Informatics and Clinical Neurophysiology of the Hannover Medical School a wide variety of projects that are in various stages of implementation, the spectrum covering the documentation and analysis of Electroencepholograms, Nerve Conduction Velocity- and Electro-Myographic observations, along with epileptic seizure documentation and trend analysis. Using examples from the routine projects we comment on the experience gained and draw conclusions as to criteria to be fulfilled by information systems intended for routine clinical usage.
