Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In clinical trials, the traditional paper-based system is timeconsuming and cumbersome. To facilitate this process, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is advocating the development of a cancer information infrastructure (CII) capable of supporting both patient care and clinical research. This vision is dependent upon the development of standards, and it resonates with the evolution of the information society and the health record in health care.
