  • IoMT Meets Machine Learning: From Edge to Cloud Chronic Diseases Diagnosis

    • Abstract: In conventional healthcare, real-time monitoring of patient records and information mining for timely diagnosis of chronic diseases under certain health conditions is a crucial process. Chronic diseases, if not diagnosed in time, may result in patients’ death. In modern medical and healthcare systems, Internet of Things (IoT) driven ecosystems use autonomous sensors to sense and track patients’ medical conditions and suggest appropriate actions. In this paper, a novel IoT and machine learning (ML)-based hybrid approach is proposed that considers multiple perspectives for early detection and monitoring of 6 different chronic diseases such as COVID-19, pneumonia, diabetes, heart disease, brain tumor, and Alzheimer’s. The results from multiple ML models are compared for accuracy, precision, recall, F1 score, and area under the curve (AUC) as a performance measure. The proposed approach is validated in the cloud-based environment using benchmark and real-world datasets. The statistical analyses on the datasets using ANOVA tests show that the accuracy results of different classifiers are significantly different. This will help the healthcare sector and doctors in the early diagnosis of chronic diseases.

  • Clinical Decision Support System for Diabetic Patients by Predicting Type
           2 Diabetes Using Machine Learning Algorithms

    • Abstract: Diabetes is one of the most serious chronic diseases that result in high blood sugar levels. Early prediction can significantly diminish the potential jeopardy and severity of diabetes. In this study, different machine learning (ML) algorithms were applied to predict whether an unknown sample had diabetes or not. However, the main significance of this research was to provide a clinical decision support system (CDSS) by predicting type 2 diabetes using different ML algorithms. For the research purpose, the publicly available Pima Indian Diabetes (PID) dataset was used. Data preprocessing, K-fold cross-validation, hyperparameter tuning, and various ML classifiers such as K-nearest neighbor (KNN), decision tree (DT), random forest (RF), Naïve Bayes (NB), support vector machine (SVM), and histogram-based gradient boosting (HBGB) were used. Several scaling methods were also used to improve the accuracy of the result. For further research, a rule-based approach was used to escalate the effectiveness of the system. After that, the accuracy of DT and HBGB was above 90%. Based on this result, the CDSS was implemented where users can give the required input parameters through a web-based user interface to get decision support with some analytical results for the individual patient. The CDSS, which was implemented, will be beneficial for physicians and patients to make decisions about diabetes diagnosis and offer real-time analysis-based suggestions to improve medical quality. For future work, if daily data of a diabetic patient can be put together, then a better clinical support system can be implemented for daily decision support for patients worldwide.

  • Virtual Reality and Cardiac Diseases: A Systematic Review of Applications
           and Effects

    • Abstract: Introduction. Cardiac diseases have grown significantly in recent years, causing many deaths globally. Cardiac diseases can impose a significant economic burden on societies. The development of virtual reality technology has attracted the attention of many researchers in recent years. This study aimed to investigate the applications and effects of virtual reality (VR) technology on cardiac diseases. Methods. A comprehensive search was carried out in four databases, including Scopus, Medline (through PubMed), Web of Science, and IEEE Xplore to identify related articles published until May 25, 2022. Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyzes (PRISMA) guideline for systematic reviews was followed. All randomized trials that investigated the effects of virtual reality on cardiac diseases were included in this systematic review. Results. Twenty-six studies were included in this systematic review. The results illustrated that virtual reality applications in cardiac diseases can be classified in three categories of physical rehabilitation, psychological rehabilitation, and education/training. This study revealed that the use of virtual reality in psychological and physical rehabilitation can reduce stress, emotional tension, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) total score, anxiety, depression, pain, systolic blood pressure, and length of hospitalization. Finally, the use of virtual reality in education/training can enhance technical performance, increase the speed of procedures, and improve the user’s skills, level of knowledge, and self-confidence as well as facilitate learning. Also, the most limitations mentioned in the studies included small sample size and lack of or short duration of follow-up. Conclusions. The results showed that the positive effects of using virtual reality in cardiac diseases are much more than its negative effects. Considering that the most limitations mentioned in the studies were the small sample size and short duration of follow-up, it is necessary to conduct studies with adequate methodological quality to report their effects in the short term and long term.

  • Fungal Skin Disease Classification Using the Convolutional Neural Network

    • Abstract: Skin is the outer cover of our body, which protects vital organs from harm. This important body part is often affected by a series of infections caused by fungus, bacteria, viruses, allergies, and dust. Millions of people suffer from skin diseases. It is one of the common causes of infection in sub-Saharan Africa. Skin disease can also be the cause of stigma and discrimination. Early and accurate diagnosis of skin disease can be vital for effective treatment. Laser and photonics-based technologies are used for the diagnosis of skin disease. These technologies are expensive and not affordable, especially for resource-limited countries like Ethiopia. Hence, image-based methods can be effective in reducing cost and time. There are previous studies on image-based diagnosis for skin disease. However, there are few scientific studies on tinea pedis and tinea corporis. In this study, the convolution neural network (CNN) has been used to classify fungal skin disease. The classification was carried out on the four most common fungal skin diseases: tinea pedis, tinea capitis, tinea corporis, and tinea unguium. The dataset consisted of a total of 407 fungal skin lesions collected from Dr. Gerbi Medium Clinic, Jimma, Ethiopia. Normalization of image size, conversion of RGB to grayscale, and balancing the intensity of the image have been carried out. Images were normalized to three sizes: 120 × 120, 150 × 150, and 224 × 224. Then, augmentation was applied. The developed model classified the four common fungal skin diseases with 93.3% accuracy. Comparisons were made with similar CNN architectures: MobileNetV2 and ResNet 50, and the proposed model was superior to both. This study may be an important addition to the very limited work on the detection of fungal skin disease. It can be used to build an automated image-based screening system for dermatology at an initial stage.

  • Strategies for Medical Device Development: User and Stakeholder

    • Abstract: Medical device development involves user safety, and it is governed by specific regulations. The failure of medical device developers to consider the influence of users, the environment, and related organizations on product development during the design and development process can result in added risks to the use of medical technologies. Although many studies have examined the medical device development process, there has been no systematic and comprehensive assessment of the key factors affecting medical device development. This research synthesized the value of medical device industry stakeholders’ experiences through a literature review and interviews with industry experts. Then, it establishes an FIA-NRM model to identify the key factors affecting medical device development and suggests appropriate pathways for improvement. Results indicate that the development of medical devices should begin with stabilizing organizational characteristics, followed by strengthening technical capability and use environment, and finally, consideration should be given to the user action of medical devices. The results provide medical device developers with optimal development pathways and resource allocation recommendations to support developers in developing medical device development strategies as well as ensuring the safety and effectiveness of the products for end users.

  • A New Scenario-Based Simulation Model for Cost Management of Healthcare
           Services through Improving the Efficiency of the Health Centers

    • Abstract: There is a need for an appropriate decision-making approach and a precise costing method in order to make appropriate decisions that result in managing the resource utilization, improving the efficiency of healthcare systems and processes, increasing the patient consent, and reducing the costs of healthcare services. Therefore, this study is to develop a new method for estimating and reducing the services’ costs by assessing the scenarios intended for the improvement of departments using time-driven activity-based costing (TDABC) and simulation model with conditions of uncertainty. To investigate the application of this method, the lithotripsy department of a kidney center has been studied and attempted to investigate the effects of different scenarios of scheduling the technicians’ presence and scheduling patients’ appointments, alongside the effects of controlling the factors of patient cancellation in different stages of the treatment process on lowering the healthcare costs and waiting time and on improving the hospital efficiency. The results showed that significant improvements in costs, waiting time, human resource utilization, and overall system efficiency were emerged. The impact of patient appointment scheduling scenarios on the abovementioned indexes was found to be far more than other scenarios. Furthermore, the results from the costs determined indicate a difference of 0.60, 0.61, 0.67, 0.67, and 0.63 percent between these costs and the costs determined by the traditional approaches. Such differences among the costs determined by these two approaches mainly occur due to different methods of allocating indirect costs and existence of uncertainty in the costs and time of therapeutic activities.

  • Hematologic Cancer Detection Using White Blood Cancerous Cells Empowered
           with Transfer Learning and Image Processing

    • Abstract: Lymphoma and leukemia are fatal syndromes of cancer that cause other diseases and affect all types of age groups including male and female, and disastrous and fatal blood cancer causes an increased savvier death ratio. Both lymphoma and leukemia are associated with the damage and rise of immature lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophils, and eosinophil cells. So, in the health sector, the early prediction and treatment of blood cancer is a major issue for survival rates. Nowadays, there are various manual techniques to analyze and predict blood cancer using the microscopic medical reports of white blood cell images, which is very steady for prediction and causes a major ratio of deaths. Manual prediction and analysis of eosinophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, and neutrophils are very difficult and time-consuming. In previous studies, they used numerous deep learning and machine learning techniques to predict blood cancer, but there are still some limitations in these studies. So, in this article, we propose a model of deep learning empowered with transfer learning and indulge in image processing techniques to improve the prediction results. The proposed transfer learning model empowered with image processing incorporates different levels of prediction, analysis, and learning procedures and employs different learning criteria like learning rate and epochs. The proposed model used numerous transfer learning models with varying parameters for each model and cloud techniques to choose the best prediction model, and the proposed model used an extensive set of performance techniques and procedures to predict the white blood cells which cause cancer to incorporate image processing techniques. So, after extensive procedures of AlexNet, MobileNet, and ResNet with both image processing and without image processing techniques with numerous learning criteria, the stochastic gradient descent momentum incorporated with AlexNet is outperformed with the highest prediction accuracy of 97.3% and the misclassification rate is 2.7% with image processing technique. The proposed model gives good results and can be applied for smart diagnosing of blood cancer using eosinophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, and neutrophils.

  • The Application of Knowledge-Based Clinical Decision Support Systems to
           Enhance Adherence to Evidence-Based Medicine in Chronic Disease

    • Abstract: Among the technology-based solutions, clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) have the ability to keep up with clinicians with the latest evidence in a smart way. Hence, the main objective of our study was to investigate the applicability and characteristics of CDSSs regarding chronic disease. The Web of Science, Scopus, OVID, and PubMed databases were searched using keywords from January 2000 to February 2023. The review was completed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses checklist. Then, an analysis was done to determine the characteristics and applicability of CDSSs. The quality of the appraisal was assessed using the Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool checklist (MMAT). A systematic database search yielded 206 citations. Eventually, 38 articles from sixteen countries met the inclusion criteria and were accepted for final analysis. The main approaches of all studies can be classified into adherence to evidence-based medicine (84.2%), early and accurate diagnosis (81.6%), identifying high-risk patients (50%), preventing medical errors (47.4%), providing up-to-date information to healthcare providers (36.8%), providing patient care remotely (21.1%), and standardizing care (71.1%). The most common features among the knowledge-based CDSSs included providing guidance and advice for physicians (92.11%), generating patient-specific recommendations (84.21%), integrating into electronic medical records (60.53%), and using alerts or reminders (60.53%). Among thirteen different methods to translate the knowledge of evidence into machine-interpretable knowledge, 34.21% of studies utilized the rule-based logic technique while 26.32% of studies used rule-based decision tree modeling. For CDSS development and translating knowledge, diverse methods and techniques were applied. Therefore, the development of a standard framework for the development of knowledge-based decision support systems should be considered by informaticians.
