Henskens, F. A., Paul, D., Wallis, M., Bryant, J., Carey, M., Fradgley, E., Koller, C. E., Paul, C. L., Sanson-Fisher, R. W. and Zucca, A., “Web-based Support for Population-based Medical Research - Presenting the QuON Survey System”, The 7th International Conference on Health Informatics (HealthInf2014), Eseo, Angers, Loire Valley, France, INSTICC, 2014.

This paper discusses the needs of medical researchers working in the area of patient-centred medicine, in particular their use of survey data in measuring patient opinions, needs, perceived quality of care received, and priorities of health service interventions. Until quite recently, collection of survey data has been either paper-based, or achieved using computer software that largely duplicated paper-based processes with limited additional functionality. The authors investigate the use of web-based technology to support collection of such data from patients, including experiences and observations on enhanced/additional functionality made possible by its adoption. A novel software design termed QuON is presented, together with examples of its capabilities and uses in current research projects.
