A Design of Clinical Information Model to Improve Self-care Activities in Participants with Stroke


  • Department of Medical Information, Kongju National University, Chungnam - 314-701, Korea, Republic of


Our paper was determined to design clinical information model to improve self-care activities in patients with stroke. Student’s T test was analyzed to identify differences for self-care activities on health promotion in patients with stroke before and after the application of medical technology model. Data was analyzed with a total of 130 patients who visited in healthcare which was at Chungnam region between December 2, 2013 and March 28, 2014. Health practice was identified the rate of health condition after intervention: 3, 6, 9 and 12 weeks. Findings of the research are next contents. 1. for dietary factors, experimental group who had intake carrot after the information application identified a good status in patients’ physical promotion (t = –3.17, p = 0.00). 2. for anxiety symptom, score of participants of experiment after intervention identified significantly slight decrease than participants of non-experiment (t = 4.85, p = 0.00). Therefore, when we adopted the information system model, it will be effective method of stroke participants in leading a good condition of participants’ self-care activities for the health promotion.
