(Lovis, 2000)

The term electronic

patient

record (EPR) means the electronic
collection of clinical narrative and diagnostic reports specific to an
individual patient. A true EPR should allow physicians and nurses
to practice in a paperless fashion. The wide adoption of Internet
technologies should

allow truly distributed sharing of patient data
across traditional organizational barriers. Hence, the meaning of
an EPR, as a representation of documents, should be transformed
into a collaborative environment that supports workflow, enables
new care mod
els and allows secure access to distributed health
data. This paper reviews the current realization of EPRs in the
context of paper
-
based medical records. The Internet architecture
that Boston
-
based medical informatics researchers refer to as
W3
-
EMRS is de
scribed in the context of a successful
implementation of CareWeb at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical
center. Finally, we describe how this Internet
-
based approach can
be extended beyond the boundaries of traditional care settings to
help evolve new collab
orative models of eHealth.

(Bremer, 2005)

Explain how the Internet has entered children's lives and notes
some of its potential positive and negative influences on children.
Although the Internet's effects on a given child vary based on each
child's char
acteristics and how the child uses the Internet, adults
still must have a fundamental understanding of these general
potentials. An awareness of the hazards inherent to children's
Internet use is essential for all who work with children so they can
apply p
reventive measures and help keep children safe. Whether a
child uses the Internet and how a child uses the Internet

significantly impact the Internet's influence on him or her. A child's
personality and developmental needs also inevitably modify the
Intern
et's influence on him or her.
